Golden Globes: Jon Hamm Wins Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama
Jon Hamm won for his performance in 'Mad Men.'
Jon Hamm took home the best actor award for his performance in the final season of Mad Men at the Golden Globes on Sunday night.
Hamm won in the category of best performance by an actor in a TV series, drama over fellow nominees Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan), Wagner Moura (Narcos), and the star of best drama series winner, Rami Malek (Mr. Robot).
The win capped off a whopping total of six nominations for Hamm in the role of Don Draper and his second Golden Globe nod (his only other win came in 2008 after Mad Men's first season).
"Wow, thank you so much to the Hollywood Foreign Press for supporting our show as long you have. All the way to the end. This is a very kind representation of that. And thank you for including me in this insanely talented group of actors, who I’m humbled to be mentioned with," Hamm said on stage. "Thanks to Mr. Weiner who wrote this horrible person all the way through to the end of this incredible ride — and picked me to play him. And also thank you for not taking my suggestion and ending the entire series on Chumbawamba. You picked the right song."
The 73rd annual Golden Globes, hosted by Ricky Gervais, were held in Beverly Hills on Jan. 10.
