Jon Hamm on “Mad Men” Win: “At Some Point We Think People Are Over It”

Share

2011 Emmys:

Leah Sydney reports that the HBO party at the Pacific Design Center “is always the best, classiest, celeb filled of the night. HBO/Time Warner titans Richard Pepler, Jeff Bewkes, Michael Lombardi were all present. Martin Scorsese made an early appearance and left…Kate Winslet as well. Wall to wall celebs, executives, Hollywood power players.  HBO always does it well. The wonderful William Hurt chatted with Paul Giamatti.

“Mad Men” star Jon Hamm lost Best Actor in a Drama to Kyle Chandler of “Friday Night Lights.” “Mad Men” won Best Drama, however. Go figure. Hamm–whose film “Friends with Kids” will be distributed by Lions Gate next spring–says he wasn’t surprised about losing. “I’m not stranger to losing these things. It’s become expected for me. Kyle Chandler is truly a good friend of mine and I’m a major fan of that show.”

On the subject of “Mad Men” winning, however, he was also surprised. We were shocked-at a certain point I think people are over it.” Not so, Jon! “Mad Men” fans are counting the days til next March! Hamm also told our Leah Sydney that show creator Matt Weiner might be a little wrong about “everyone coming in this morning with a hangover.” Said Jon: “Kiernan [Shipka, 15 years old] is the first up. I don’t think she’ll have a hangover.”
