It's taken him quite some time to get there, but Jon Hamm finally made it to the stage to accept his Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series award at the 67th Emmys in Los Angeles on Sunday night. The Mad Men actor, who played anti-hero Don Draper for eight years, took the time to praise his ex-girlfriend of 18 years, Jennifer Westfeldt in his acceptance speech.
The Hollywood hunk not only took the time to acknowledge Westfeldt, who he broke up with this past summer, but their dog Cora, too.
He said, "It's incredible and impossible for me personally to be standing here so I want to thank the people to whom I owe an incredible debt. Cora and Jen, thank you all very much, I would not be standing here without you.''
Hamm also quipped that his award might have been a huge joke played on him by presenter and comedian Tina Fey.
He joked, "There's been a terrible mistake, clearly." And speaking afterwards, he quipped: ''I think it's all a huge joke that somehow Tina's played on me. I told [Tina] on stage, I said, 'I'm glad that you read my name, whatever it says on there.'''
Mad Men aired its final season on AMC this past Spring after eight seasons. The final episode showed Hamm's character coming up with the iconic Coca Cola's "I'd Like To Buy A World A Coke" ad that was made famous back in 1971.
