BEVERLY HILLS, California (Reuters) - "Mad Men," about the lives of men and women working in a Madison Avenue advertising agency, won the Golden Globe for best television drama on Sunday.

In other top TV awards, Julianna Margulies was named best actress in a TV drama for "The Good Wife" and Michael C. Hall was best actor in a drama in serial killer show "Dexter."

Alec Baldwin won the Golden Globe for best actor in a TV comedy playing a network executive in "30 Rock," and Toni Collette was best actress in a comedy for "United States of Tara."

The Golden Globe Awards are given out by some 90 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and a win here can give TV shows wide exposure that can help build audiences.
