The philandering Don Draper was an instant hit when Mad Men debuted, but Hamm himself has suffered the same fate as Michael C. Hall. Since 2008, he’s watched as the acting award is handed to Cranston almost every year. Then, the one year "Breaking Bad" wasn’t on the air and was therefore ineligible for awards, Kyle Chandler defeated Hamm for his work on the final season of "Friday Night Lights" -- a much-deserved victory for the vastly underserved show. Now he’s falling victim to Emmy voters’ obsession with "Homeland": Last year Damian Lewis won for playing Nicholas Brody, a war hero with a self-serving, possibly nefarious agenda. Parallels can be drawn to Draper, who also manipulates loved ones to play their part (though in this case it’s less terrorism, more mommy issues). If the Emmys can get behind Lewis, who conceivably has plenty of eligible years ahead of him, surely they can throw Hamm a bone before "Mad Men" makes its groovy exit.
