    'Mad Men' Season 5 Premiere: Interviews, Previews, Our Review And More On The AMC Drama

    We've gone a little mad prepping for the Season 5 premiere of "Mad Men" ... but can you really blame us? It's been 525 days since the Season 4 finale, and those cliffhangers have kept our wheels turning ever since.

    What year will it be when we see our Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce friends again? And what's Don Draper's personal life looking like these days: Did he marry Megan? Is he still living in that sad little apartment? How's his relationship with his kids?

    We know we're not alone, which is why we've worked tirelessly to fill the gap for fans, getting some of the best interviews, with star Jon Hamm and the entire cast, as well as creator Matt Weiner; teasing as much as we can in our review; creating some fun video mash-ups, and gathering the coolest viral videos; and even shaking up a signature cocktail to toast the show's return.

    To make it easier on you to find everything, it's all right here. Happy reading, watching, drinking and "Mad Men"-ing!

    Jon Hamm and Kim Kardashian have the most attractive disagreement in Hollywood

    Kim Kardashian might be used to this sort of thing. After all, the ubiquitous reality star has earned her fair share of criticism about everything from her 72-day marriage to her offensively exorbitant lifestyle to her family’s general terribleness. Having already been called a ‘f—ing idiot’ by Daniel Craig, Kim should have suspected that other classy, handsome Hollywood gents might feel the same way. In fact, in an interview with Elle UK Jon Hamm found the same words for her. (And Paris Hilton, for that matter. Remember her, you guys? Guys?)

    “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated,” the Mad Men star told the magazine, adding, “Being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly….It’s celebrated. It doesn’t make sense to me.”

    While Jonah Hill would most certainly agree (the Moneyball actor griped to The Huffington Post, “The fact that the Kardashians could be more popular than a show like Mad Men is disgusting”) Kim took offense to the statement. Opting to take the high road — or, in this case Twitter — Kardashian responded, “I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, “stupid,” is in my opinion careless.” READ MORE

    Afternoon Bitch-Back! What’s a Poor, Put-Upon Angel to Do?

    Critics agree Minka Kelly's acting in Charlie's Angels is abyssmal. So did she get the gig by encouraging a few "ass slaps" on her road to TV series headliner? Was she really a nurse or just some kind of glorified assistant?

    Dear Wow:
    A show that's clearly meant to be just a chick-filled homage to all the other pretty chick-filled versions of Angels (the original of which, mind you, was never heralded for its acting achievements) and you're aiming a sexist, snob-harpoon straight at poor Minka? We think she does fine at the job for which she was hired. She also does an even better job off-camera with those reported bitch-slap stories! Also, I don't believe Minka's claims that she was a surgical nurse at one time have been uncovered, as yet, as a sinister lie. Perhaps that detective work's going to have to be yours, dog. Good luck.

    Dear Ted:
    Forget Lea Michele and Cory Monteith or Lea Michele and Darren Criss getting together, now that she's single... What about Lea and Dianna Agron? Or do the ladies not swing towards the same sex?

    Dear Good One:
    Love the way you think, N, but, unfortunately, I don't believe Lea and Dianna have similar thoughts (at least, not publicly). Both ladies love to get it on with the guys. And as right-on as both gals have been regarding gay rights—Dianna, in particular—I think this gal-on-gal get-together will have to come about as a Glee dream, or something.

    Dear Ted:
    Tell me, is the delish Jon Hamm one of your famous Vicers?

    Dear Dammit:
    No. Now, this doesn't mean yummy Jon hasn't been the subject of some major juicy gossip, but, unfortunately it's mostly the result of some of Jon's colleagues being so frustrated he doesn't give them enough to talk about in real life. Get it?

    2011 Emmy Nominations List: 63rd Primetime Emmy Nominations Announced

    The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences on Thursday announced the nominees for the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards. At first glance, the list seems to stock largely the same series as last year, but there are some significant newcomers.
    In the Best Series, Drama category, HBO newcomers "Game of Thrones" and "Boardwalk Empire" enter the running as strong contenders. On the comedy side, fan and critical favorite "Parks and Recreation" has joined the fray, alongside fellow NBC shows "The Office" and "30 Rock."
    Newcomers to the Outstanding Actress in a Comedy are "Mike & Molly" star Melissa McCarthy, who helped present the nominations and Laura Linney of Showtime's "The Big C."
    In the actor categories, Jon Hamm looks to win his first Outstanding Actor in a Drama, and is buoyed by the fact that three-time winner Bryan Cranston, of "Breaking Bad," was not nominated thanks to his show's timing. Louis CK, of the eponymous comedy, "Louie," got a nod in the Outstanding Actor in a Comedy category.
    Something to note: "Conan" was nominated for an Emmy, but Jay Leno's "The Tonight Show" was not.
    Justin Timberlake and Zach Galifianakis landed nominations for their hosting jobs of "Saturday Night Live," while three "Glee" guest stars -- Gwyneth Paltrow, Kristen Chenowith and Dot Marie Jones -- got nods.
