It turns out that AMC relied on some clever marketing tricks to nab its 6 Emmys. It turns out that ingenious story arcs, elaborate sets, detailed costumes, and all the subtle nuances that are employed to capture the realities of a specific era in time are not enough to capture an Emmy.

Mad Men Wins 6 Emmys

The most fashionable show of the moment and Steel Closet favorite, Mad Men, wins 6 Emmys including Outstanding Drama Series and Best Actor, going to John Hamm. Salutes to Don Draper.
