Mad Men won big at the WGA Awards on Saturday. But months after the end of the fourth season of the much accoladed AMC series, there is still no deal with the network for a Season 5 or a new pact for creator Matt Weiner to return. That certainly is making writers on the show uneasy and clouding what should have been a night of celebration for the writing team. Mad Men swept the drama categories at the WGA Awards, winning for best drama series and best drama episode, the Erin Levy-penned The Chrysanthemum and the Sword. Some in the audience were joking that Weiner might use his acceptance speech for best drama series to thank the show’s writers and announce that they no longer had jobs. He didn’t of course, and the show going away is extremely unlikely — though all the scribes feted on Saturday are not guaranteed to stay on as Weiner is known for shaking up the writers room between seasons.
