Jon Hamm was first nominated for an Emmy back in 2007 for ‘Mad Men.’ He’s been nominated a total of 16 times. He hadn’t won an Emmy, however, before last night. This was an especially big nomination because it was his final chance to win for his acting in ‘Mad Men’ since the show ended this year. He literally crawled onto the stage to accept his statute ;).
Last night was the 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards! History was made when ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ star Viola Davis became the first African American actress to win an Emmy for Lead Actress in a Drama. ‘Mad Men’ star Jon Hamm took home a statuette of his own (and thanked ex-girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt in his acceptance speech), as did former ‘Daily Show’ host Jon Stewart, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus added to her collection with her sixth Emmy win. Tracy Morgan also made a triumphant return to the spotlight, and he posed in the press room with his wife and daughter. We have the complete winners list after the break as well as a gallery of pictures from the press room.
It’s not easy ending an 18 year relationship for anyone, including Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt. ‘Mad Men’ creator Matthew Weiner is good friends with both and opened up about how they’re doing these days.
Now that Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt have announced their split, the speculation has begun about what happened. There are two stories floating around out there: one is that they disagreed about starting a family and another, pretty different one, is that Jon was basically using Jennifer as a “mother figure.”
Did you hear about Jon Hamm completing a 30-day stint in rehab? Lots of people heard about it after someone spilled the beans, forcing the ‘Mad Men’ star to speak out. In these pictures, Jon was all decked out for the ‘Mad Men’ Black & White Ball that was held to celebrate the show’s final seven episodes.
