Emmys 2012: Why can't Jon Hamm ever win for 'Mad Men'? Bryan Cranston is not the only reason

It seems like Jon Hamm just can't catch a break.Every year that the so-called "most acclaimed drama on TV," "Mad Men," has been on the air, Hamm has gotten a lead acting Emmy nomination for playing the most important role on the show, Don Draper. And every single year, he's lost.This is despite the fact that he's been asked to carry much of the emotional load in the heavy AMC drama. Even though during the first four seasons he's had to play the ups and downs of a man trying to figure out who he is while swimming in the shark-infested waters of 1960s advertising, he's gone home from the Emmys without the top prize.The first three times Hamm lost, you could have jumped to the easy conclusion that Bryan Cranston's searing portrayal of Walter White in "Breaking Bad" was simply a better performance than Hamm's. But that theory got blown out of the water...
