CENTURY CITY, CA - FEBRUARY 20: Writer Matthew Weiner poses in the press room at the 2010 Writers Guild Awards held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel on February 20, 2010 in Century City, California.

The AMC series was up for three awards at Sunday's ceremony but came out empty-handed.

Despite being nominated in three categories, Mad Men came out empty-handed at the SAG Awards on Sunday night.

But series creator Matthew Weiner was taking it all in stride after the ceremony.
"If you don't like being at something like this [and not winning], you shouldn't be in the business," Weiner told The Hollywood Reporter. "We're out of work right now, and I get to hang out with my family," he added, referring to the cast. "This is my family."
While the show has been renewed for a fifth season, Weiner recently said he doesn't yet have a contract (AMC is still negotiating with Lionsgate, which produces the drama) -- but he's "not looking for a new job."

Mad Men was nominated for best drama series ensemble, best actor for Jon Hamm and best actress for Elisabeth Moss at Sunday's SAG Awards.
