    I think Jon Hamm’s win last was historic for a # of reasons. #1 it disproved the theory that at the Golden Globes an actor has to be on a tv series that is nominated for best series to win and #2 He was snubbed two years in a row then was nominated again and won I seriously don’t believe that has ever happened before at the globes and #3 This must be the first time unless anyone can tell me otherwise that someone won golden globes for the first and final season of their TV series. Which is really historic. Thoughts??

    Who cares with Globes, to be honest? They can award an infant for three consecutive years if they want it to. They are too small of a group to make any stats on.

    I think his situation with SAG is more interesting. There aren’t many examples of a lead actor being in a show that they like so much, was nominated so much, yet went home empty-handed every time. Especially with the SAG, when voters vote something on Ensemble category they tend to vote for in other categories, too.

    I guess playing an unlikable character(not unlikable, but not someone you can root for , either) in a big ensemble show didn’t make him any favour just like with Steve Carell in The Office, who also didn’t win a single individual SAG award.
    That is why I’m not still convinced that he will win the SAG this year. Not many things have changed since 2008 or 2009. Let’s see at what degree, media’s power has effect on SAG voters.
    I believe(someone correct me if I’m wrong), AFTRA also united with SAG after that date. That might also help him; though it didn’t help McConaughey last year.

    This is a group that gave Lady Gaga an award for acting. Nothing more need be said.

    Uhh it’s not though the other winners in the SAG category (Hugh Laurie Bryan Cranston Michael C. Hall Steve Buscemi) were playing charming nice guys. They were all playing anti-heroes same as Jon Hamm I still don’t get your distinction.

    Steve Buscemi was helped by his name recognition, and C.Hall was helped by his health situation.
    I don’t think their characters personality mattered that much there.

    Don’t miss my ”big ensemble” point. Breaking Bad, Dexter, House were all one/two man shows which wouldn’t have stood on their own feet without those main characters. Mad Men was more of an ensemble piece and Don Draper was a big part of it. But he wasn’t the indispensable part of the puzzle that have made the show so successful. If we make a poll here and ask people about their favourite characters from those shows, we would take consistent answers for BB, The Sopranos, Dexter, House but with Mad Men it would be all over the place with some pointing out Peggy, others Joan, Betty, Roger or Don.
     Don Draper is hot, young and badass. If you ask my personal opinion, he leans more to the ”anti” side of the word than the ”hero” You don’t feel sorry for him the way you feel sorry for Walter White, or his character doesn’t have as many iconic qualities as Dr.House or Tony Soprano, and that makes his bad features clearer.

    Like I already said in my post, I’ve already found this situation(him never winning SAG) weird. I could be completely wrong, but that was the only explanation I could came up with. What is your theory about this?
