Fresh off their 9000th award win, this time for best drama series at the Writers Guild Awards, the "Mad Men" scribe team is set to report for their first day of work on season three on Monday. Among the new faces in the room this year is Davey Holmes, an alum of HBO's "In Treatment," which took best new series.
Holmes was on hand at the Century Plaza to accept his award, and after the show hung out for a bit in the ballroom lobby with Sonya Walger, ex of HBO's "Tell Me You Love Me" and now one-half of the fans' favorite couple on "Lost." Walger also chatted for a bit with "Lost's" Damon Lindelof, and the sight of them together made me smile in a ridiculously fan-feverish way.
Other friendly faces in the post-show gaggle included "Mad Men's" Robin Veith, Becky Hartman Edwards and others from "Life on Mars," Matt Nix of "Burn Notice," the ever-charming Matt Selman of "Simpsons" fame, Greg and Susanne Daniels, Kirk Ellis and his wife (who became proud grandparents four days ago), and Endeavor's Tom Wellington. The WGA ceremony itself surely dragged in parts, but the company and conversation at the end was very nearly worth the wait.
