Worst: …But 'Mad Men' Was Otherwise Shut Out

The critically acclaimed AMC series ended its seven-season run in May, but it was curiously lacking in both Emmy nominations and wins this time around. Hamm's win was a pleasant surprise, but the drama was completely shut out for its other nominations: Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Elisabeth Moss), Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Christina Hendricks), and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series (two episodes were nominated, and both lost). Considering that it was Mad Men's final season and that the series went out on a high note, it's surprising that creator Matthew Weiner didn't walk away with more awards (but at least he has four previous Emmys to console him).
