It's a long time coming, but Jon Hamm might finally get that Emmy win that he so obviously deserves. After being looked over for the past several years, there's a new report that says the odds are in Hamm's favor for winning the Best Actor in a Drama Series award for his portrayal of Don Draper in Mad Men at this year's ceremony.
According to GoldDerby on Tuesday, there's a 10/3 chance that Hamm will finally win, with Kevin Spacey from House of Cards at 4/1 and Bob Odenkirk from Better Call Saul at 6/1.
Even though Mad Men has ended, Hamm admitted last month that his role in the series was one of his most challenging acting jobs yet.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Hamm said that playing the womanizing advertising genius hasn't been easy for him.
He said, "Acting is not a physically demanding job, like playing professional football, or breaking big rocks into little rocks, but it does take a lot of focus and mental acuity, and it takes an emotional toll. Especially when you're playing a person with a lot of emotions; you can have a lot of sad days at work."
Hamm also opened up about filming the series' last episode, which he likened it to a grieving process.
He said, "There was a grieving process. Whatever the stages of loss are: anger and bargaining ... but you eventually come to acceptance. We all went through a version of that to various degrees."
