Jon Hamm won the Emmy for Outstanding Acting in a Drama Series Sunday night for his role in “Mad Men.”
This is the first Emmy win for Hamm, who was previously nominated 7 times for his work as Don Draper.
“There has been a terrible mistake, clearly.” Hamm said in his acceptance speech. “This is impossible, to be named with all of these extraordinary gentleman. It’s impossible to be standing up here.”
“Mad Men” ended its groundbreaking run this past May.
Other nominees in the category included Bob Odenkirk for “Better Call Saul,” Kyle Chandler for “Bloodline,” Kevin Spacey for “House of Cards,” Jeff Daniels for “The Newsroom,” and Liev Schreiber for “Ray Donovan.”
