How Many Emmys Does 'Mad Men' Have? Not Nearly As Many As It Deserves
When Mad Men first premiered in 2008, the show instantly earned rave reviews from critics and fans alike. The show, which tells the story of 1960s ad man Don Draper's search for meaning and masculinity within the decade's strict social norms, has been cited as one of the heralds of the new Golden Age of Television, no doubt thanks to its tortured anti-hero protagonist, expertly crafted visuals, and ambiguous morality.
