** Bob Benson (for those that [[BaseBreaker don't consider him]] TheScrappy) is this among quite a number of fans, due to his MagnificentBastard tendencies, his almost creepily optimistic nature, and the strength of James Wolk's performance. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpUWrl3-mc8 "NOT GREAT, BOB"]] [[MemeticMutation meme]] that emerged following the Season 6 finale probably helped ascend him to this position.

** Kinsey growing a beard in season two becomes this after he writes a script for an episode of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries]]. (Wrong show, right franchise.)

*** Despite the win for Hamm, they managed to miss winning Best Drama Series over ''Series/GameOfThrones'', whom, according to most, had what was probably their weakest season. They also lost out to Best Writing against Game of Thrones as well.

Added DiffLines:

** The usage of the lesser known song by the Zombies called "This Will Be Our Year" was a great capper to the episode "A Day's Work"


Added DiffLines:

** Was Peggy and Stan getting together in the finale a well-earned satisfying conclusion that, while admittedly cheesy, was a great conclusion to show that Peggy can really have it all? Or was it an overly rushed conclusion that was too stereotypical and sexist because it seemed like giving her a man was what she needed all along?

** Jon Hamm has spoken in interviews of how it amazes him fans talk of how great a guy Don is and even wanting to live like him, not getting the man is a wretched, selfish, self-destructive mess.

** In "The Monolith", Ginsberg gets some good zingers at how the IBM machine is going to replace them all. [[spoiler:In "The Runaways", this gets a whole lot less funny when Ginsberg's paranoia over the machine leads to a psychotic breakdown.]]

** By the end of its run, the show received a total of 34 acting nominations and only won once: Jon Hamm for Lead Actor in his very last eligible year. This is notable as the other 4-time winners of Best Drama Series,''Series/HillStreetBlues'', ''Series/LALaw'', and ''Series/TheWestWing'', all won acting Emmys several times.
** The show never won for Directing, which is something that no other 4-time winner has ever done.
