Accepting the award, the 44-year-old actor said, “There’s been a mistake, clearly. It’s impossible to be named with all of those extraordinary gentlemen. It’s impossible to have done this show with this incredible cast, these incredible people, our incredible writers, our incredible crew.
“And it’s incredible and impossible for me, personally, to be standing up here.”
Jon Hamm has been nominated for 16 Emmys and the win for Mad Men was the first. Being a producer of the show, he is also up for the award of best drama series.
