“Mad Men” star Jon Hamm is like the Leonardo DiCaprio of television. The actor, who created the character of Don Draper, has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy award 12 times, but has yet to take home the coveted gold statue.
The 2014 Emmy nom is his seventh for “Mad Men.” He also garnered a nomination for his work on “30 Rock.”
It may be the last time Hamm, 43, will have a chance to take home the award for his portrayal of Don Draper, since the series wrapped in 2014. Hamm told the New York Times in July he wasn’t sure what the future held for him.
“I haven’t really thought about it. It’s too much. I’m still in the process of letting go of the show and reconnecting with my life and my family," he told the Times when asked about his next move. “It’s nice that we’ve reached the end and we all made it. But I know right now I’m going to eat breakfast. That’s the extent of my looking into the future.”
The Emmy's are on tonight? Two words: John Hamm .... That is all.

Am I the only one cheering for John Hamm to win an Emmy?! Just give it to him already. Please.

Hamm has stiff competition at the 2014 Emmys. Many people have their “drug money” on Bryan Cranston to take home the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his work on "Breaking Bad."
