Matthew Weiner


Matthew Weiner, who claims he does not get many accolades, says the honor is 'very meaningful.'

"Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner was honored with France's Vermeil Medal for his cultural contributions to society in Paris on Tuesday, February 8. The ceremony took place Paris' City Hall.

His series stars Christina Hendricks and John Slattery joined the writer/producer in the French capital, where he was feted by Mayor Bertrand Delanoe. "I fell in love with Paris through the movies," said Weiner, adding that it was "very meaningful" to be given the award. "I don't get many accolades, I don't get many medals," he continued.

"Mad Men" has wrapped the fourth season in October 2010. The fifth season is scheduled to be aired later this year.
