*** 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, which is considered by many to be the show's weakest season.

* {{Narm}}: Ham-handed attempts to bring up differences in the 1960s, like Don sarcastically talking about a magic machine that can copy documents in the pilot and Sally playing with a plastic bag in the third episode. Thankfully, "Weren't the 60's wacky" comments fade as the first season goes on.

* {{Narm}}: Don sarcastically talking about a magic machine that can copy documents in the pilot episode is very artificial and comes off more as the show saying "Weren't the '60s wacky?" than anything that someone living in that time would actually say. Luckily, the show immediately got better about this.

** Peggy. She even gets the idea that she isn't attractive, not helping are Joan's insults on her looks and fashion sense or when the guys make jokes about her being a "Gertrude Stein" as opposed to a "Jackie or [[MarilynMonroe Marilyn]]". Yet given that she's played by Creator/ElisabethMoss, it's been lampshaded on the show that the idea of her being unattractive is insane and can be attributed to the Men wrapping their heads around the idea that a woman can be beautiful and intellectual along with misogyny. Don ("You're an attractive girl Peggy" and once compared her to Creator/IreneDunne), a suspicious Bobbie ("You're so young and beautiful"), even Joan (admits she has darling ankles and laments her "hiding a very attractive girl under a lot of lunch"), Stan ("You have a nice ass"), and Mathis ("You know you're a catch right?") have commented on how pretty she is.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: "Waterloo" ends with Bert Cooper's surprise musical performance of "The Best Things in Life are Free". [[spoiler:The late Bert Cooper]]. ItMakesSenseInContext, [[spoiler:and is a rather well-done sendoff for Bert and tribute to Robert Morse's Broadway career, chiefly his leading role in ''HowToSucceedInBusinessWithoutReallyTrying'']].

** Peggy Olson has found plenty of fans that relate to her, thanks to Elisbeth Moss's work on making Peggy an Everywoman figure and for her CharacterDevelopment; in fact ''The New Yorker'' proclaimed that [[http://i.huffpost.com/gen/1668387/thumbs/o-ELISABETH-570.jpg?1 "ElisabethMoss Has Been the star of ''Mad Men'' All Along: She Just Didn't Know It"]].

** The casual sexism and harassment depicted on the show is even more uncomfortable after allegations that showrunner Matthew Weiner sexually harassed a writer on the show.
