One of the big stories going into tonight’s Emmy Awards is whether Jon Hamm — who has been nominated an eighth time for playing Don Draper on Mad Men — will finally walk away with an award. It’s been a rough ride for Hamm, but to be honest, it’s been a difficult ride for all off the actors on Mad Men. In seven years, Mad Men has never won an acting award, despite being nominated 33 times.

That’s insane. It’s not just Hamm, either. Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery, Robert Morse, and Christina Hendricks have been nominated multiple times. This year, only Hamm, Moss, and Hendricks have been nominated, so they are the last hopes remaining for one of the best acted series ever to go home with an acting award.

There are a few conspiracy theories floating around about why no actor has ever won an Emmy despite all the nominations, but if you look at the competition, you can chalk 95 percent of it up to simple bad luck.

Let’s take a look back at who all the actors have lost out to in previous years.
