‘Mad Men’ creator Matt Weiner says he has nothing but respect for HBO’s ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ the show that Emmy watchers are saying could pose quite a threat to a ‘Mad Men’ win in the Emmy Awards top drama series category. ‘We’re not going to box it out or anything,’ Weiner joked of battling his rival, as ‘Mad Man’ star Jon Hamm walked by on the red carpet and grabbed his shoulder.
The two men grinned at each other as Hamm sailed by. Alluding to how he and Hamm knew each other, he teased, ‘I don’t know, I just met him in a St. Louis airport.’
