With its win for Outstanding Hairstyling for a Single-Camera Series at last week's Creative Arts Awards, MAD MEN received a total of three Emmys(R) this year.

Created and executive produced by Matthew Weiner in association with Weiner Bros., MAD MEN is set in New York in the 1960's and follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising when the industry was at its height of glamour, power and prestige. The series stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Bryan Batt, Michael Gladis, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer and Robert Morse.

WEEDS, which recently concluded its fifth season on Showtime, has already been renewed for season six.

Mary-Louise Parker has been honored with four Golden Globe nominations including a 2006 win, two Emmy nominations and four SAG nominations, among other awards for her work in WEEDS.
