Hamm has been nominated for his role as Don Draper a grand total of 16 times. As the show finished earlier this year, last night was last chance saloon for Hamm’s Emmy aspirations.

Tensions were high in the room, and the crowd cheered the loudest when Tina Fey read Hamm’s name while listing the nominees.
