Jon Hamm Emmys Video: “Mad Men” Star Finally Wins Emmy Award For Lead Actor
Jon Hamm finally won at the 2015 Emmys on Sunday! Check out the video below!
After losing the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category for the last seven years in a row, the “Mad Men” star was named the winner at the 67th annual ceremony. He beat Jeff Daniels, Kyle Chandler, Kevin Spacey, Kevin Odenkirk, and Liev Schreiber for the honor. And, with the “Mad Men” series finale airing last May, this was the last time he could’ve possibly won for his iconc Don Draper character.
After his name was announced by Tina Fey, thunderous applause broke out and Hamm amusingly climbed his way on to the stage. “There’s been a terrible mistake, clearly. Thank you for that,” began the actor.
Hamm then said, “This is impossible. It’s impossible to win with all of those extraordinary gentlemen. It’s impossible to be standing up here. It’s impossible to have done the show with this incredible cast… And it’s impossible for me personally to be standing here.”
“So I want to thank the people to whom I owe an incredible debt,” continued Hamm, specifically citing the “families who have chosen for some reason and take me in and be nice to me along this strange, long road.” He ended, “Thank you to everyone who watched the show, and thank you for this.” See the full video below.
