Buzzfeed has put together a list of interesting Emmy facts. Like….
No “Mad Men” star has EVER won for acting on the show. The show itself has won several awards . . . including Best Drama four years in a row.
-“Seinfeld” only won Best Comedy ONCE, in 1993. Then “Frasier” beat it for the rest of its run . . . which was the next five years.
Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander never won for their acting on the show. But Michael Richards won three times, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus won once.

-No African-American has ever won Best Actress in a Drama.
There was a lot of talk that KERRY WASHINGTON from “Scandal” would break that streak last night. But the Emmy went to “Homeland” star CLAIRE DANES again.
-“Saturday Night Live” has the most nominations for any show, with 171.
-David Letterman has crushed Jay Leno at the Emmys. Leno may get better ratings, but Letterman has six Emmys to Jay’s ONE.
-CLORIS LEACHMAN has the most Primetime Emmys, with EIGHT. Her first win was in 1973 . . . and more recently she picked up two for guesting on “Malcolm in the Middle”.
-Bill Maher has been nominated 29 times for his late-night shows. He has NEVER WON.
-Betty White is the oldest-ever nominee . . . and the oldest winner. Betty won an Emmy in 2010, at the age of 88. And she was nominated again in 2012, when she was 90.
