  1. How on earth did “DOWNTON ABBEY” receive major nominations for Golden Globes and SAG? How? Although entertaining, it’s just simply not that good.

    • Apparently the voting members of SAG/AFTRA and HFPA do believe that Downton Abbey is that good.

      Personally I look forward to both Mad Men and Downton Abbey. Trust me, if I were nominating both of those shows would receive far more love.

  2. At last. Some recognition for Jon Hamm — hilarious acceptance speech and heartfelt introduction by Elisabeth Moss.
