This article from Tampa Bay Online reveals that yet another critic is rooting for Mad Men as best dramatic series, but it also gives a lot of interesting tidbits about the Golden Globes, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that awards them.

For decades, the Globes were a joke because some of the members were notorious for taking freebies and never saying no to expense-paid junkets.
