Jon Hamm thanked his dog & his ex-girlfriend, in that order, at the Emmys


Alright, as promised in the Peter Dinklage post, here are some assorted photos of some of the hot/hotter dudes at the Emmys. Everyone’s talking about Jon Hamm today, because he won his first-ever Emmy, and it’s only like his second or third major award that he’s ever received for playing Don Draper, the most iconic role of his career. I think Hamm definitely deserved an Emmy at some point over the course of Mad Men, but I’m not sure if the last season showcased his best work. Still, it’s nice that he finally got something. When he won, he name-checked his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Westfeldt, and their dog, saying thanks to “Cora and Jen.”

Hamm didn’t walk the red carpet, choosing to just walk into the venue and sit down. As far as I can tell, he didn’t bring a date, although people are saying he went out and partied with January Jones after the show. I think she’s dating Will Forte though? Hm. Also: Hamm Butt.


Who else do we have? Adrien Brody, looking like the biggest skeeve in the world. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, looking sort of tired and jet-lagged (he’s probably both). Some Game of Thrones dudes, John Bradley-West (Sam), Alfie Allen (REEK), Conleth Hill (Varys). I’m also including a photo of beardy Jon Stewart, because WHY DID YOU LEAVE US? Oh, and Alan Cumming, who looks absurd but I would still hit that.

    Cummings channeling Chaplin? Works better with a hat.

    • OverFirstAve. says:

      “”Jon was in an amazing mood,” the source tells Us Weekly of Hamm’s demeanor at the post-Emmys party. “He spent most of the night nestled in a corner booth with January and a few show runners,” they added.”

      • bettyrose says:

        Don and Betty? Seriously? But they’re both so much like their characters in real life and their in screen characters hated each other.

      • evermore says:

        They are both just good actors who some may want to Believe, that they are just like their characters, but I don’t see it. I don’t think January is as unfeeling and as mean as Betty. She gets along with all the ladies on the cast and was having a great time last night. She’s just a good actress.
        I don’t think Jon Hamm is exactly like his character either. I think he’s a good actor.

        It would be fun to see them hookup for a bit, though.
        Jon and January.

      • joan says:

        I think Jon looks great now, and deserved the win long ago. Who ELSE could’ve embodied Don Drape so well?

        A bigger thank you to his ex would be nice, since they were together so long and she was famous before he was, so she probably gave a lot in the relationship.

  2. MG says:

    Adrien Brody pissed me off when he wiped Viola Davis’ kiss off.

    • Esmom says:

      Oh wow, I didn’t see that but it would have pissed me off, too. He’s the worst, so I guess it’s not entirely surprising.

      • MG says:

        You can see it on the post about Viola. I’m sure it wasn’t mean spirited or anything but it looked rude.

    • Alice says:

      What??? Elaborate, please. I didn’t watch the Emmys. I do remember that liplock he did on Halle at the Oscars, though, so this surprises me.

      • Colette says:

        Well he probably finds Halle attractive.I need to find footage from other awards shows to see if he has wiped off other actresses’ lipstick after presenting awards.Will check youtube

      • Anna says:

        Yeah, this shit is so insidious. God. How deeply ingrained are the prejudices…

      • Chinoiserie says:

        Or maybe this has nothing to do with race but because he just does not think she is attractive…

    • Anna says:

      Wow. That’s messed up. Micro-aggression. It’s real.

    • evermore says:

      I think someone is exaggerating. He did not wipe off the kiss.
      In fact Viola was being gracious and so was he.
      Some invent things out of nothing.

      • MG says:

        He did wipe his mouth after the kiss. My thoughts are because he thought he may have red lipstick on his face or maybe it was a wet kiss. But dudes should not do that, it looks bad. Wait till you get off stage so no one misinterprets why you wiped your mouth.

    • Marny says:

      He might just not want bright red lipstick on.

  3. Pinky says:

    Hammin’ it up. He looked good, was funny, seemed grateful.

    • Esmom says:

      What was that crawl onto the stage? Just being funny by not using the stairs? I do like his ensemble. Stewart looks really good, like he got some hard-earned rest.

    • Lilian says:

      Didn’t he sexually assault a guy with an object in university? Did he apologise for that? Acknowledge it?

      • Don't kill me I'm French says:


      • laura in LA says:

        No acknowledgement or apology yet. My only thought on this now is that he was advised to wait until after the end of Mad Men and the Emmys.

        Also, since I think his drinking problems may have something to do with his shame over this incident, maybe he hasn’t reached the 12th step yet?

        Or perhaps a therapist suggested he wait until he’s ready to make his apology sincere. Either way, I hope he does it sometime soon.

      • justagirl says:

        And a big ‘nothing’ too from the general public…so many dismiss it as “he was young” or “it was once”, which, NO, regular people don’t do that when they’re young, or drunk, even “just once”.

        It seems a minority of people see that behavior, and refusing to be accountable & running away from the charges for years, plus his apparent issues with substance, and his flaunt it free-ballin’ style for what they are….a big lack of respect for people & social norms. That trait isn’t a great guy, that’s someone with a personality disorder.

      • Anne tommy says:

        I don’t think substance problems and not wearing underwear indicate a personality disorder. The ?alleged? assault sounds horrible though. I don’t believe in giving people a free pass for a violent or nasty act cos they are young either. I got accused on another thread of spoiling bunnikins-related fun about the royal family by pointing out that among other things Prince Harry had worn a Nazi uniform at a fancy dress party. What a party pooper I am! The Hamm story if true is worse but these people should know better.

  4. Marigold says:

    I disagree this last season wasn’t one for him to win an Emmy for. I think it was some of his absolute best work. He deserved an Emmy for the last episode, alone.

    • calista says:

      This! I religiously watch Mad Men and find Hamm’s performance on the very last episode to be one of his best. The scene where he hugged a stranger at a hippie retreat moved me to tears.

    • laura in LA says:

      Absolutely. Although I think Jon Hamm should’ve won sooner, it’s just as well they waited until the final season.

      He was great all throughout, but that last episode was excellent. When Don Draper smiled, I did, too! Perfect ending.

  5. 7-11 says:

    No code. Straightforward post is straightforward post: Looking at the photos of both John Stewart and Alan Cumming, I wonder why men dye their hair. Grey is Good. Grey is sexy. That’s all I got.

  6. mia girl says:

    I think John Bradley-West (Sam) and Conleth Hill (Varys) both look quite handsome outside of the GOT rags. Good showing boys

  7. OverFirstAve. says:

    The photos of he and January Jones at the after party in US are cute.
    Rumours are they were hanging together.

  8. Jackal says:

    Jon Hamm’s speech seemed so muted and sullen to me. I guess I was expecting more when he crawled onto the stage but he just seemed kind of sad.

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      His show is over, he broke up with his life partner very recently and he is fairly recently out of rehab. Kind of depressing.

    • bella says:

      hamm’s speech was low key, but in a good way.
      i think it sweet to thank his dog and jen no matter the order.
      i was struck by how rested and sober he looked and was happy for him.
      jj and the hamm?
      great looking couple but i’m still waiting to see if the bobby flay rumor is true and they end up together.
      i’m kind of obsessed with it, admittingly…

    • minx says:

      I thought he sounded humble and grateful.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      It was understated but after losing for so many years he must have, despite the odds being in his favor, still not believed it would happen until it did. It’s hard to be present when things you’ve been waiting for a long time come true. He has always expressed such gratitude for the role and the show, I think it probably was a shock despite everything, esp. after the year he’s had.

  9. Talie says:

    Whatever happened between them got a bit ugly in the press, but it was classy of him to thank Jennifer. She had been with him the whole time and I’m sure it was bittersweet for her.

  10. Lori says:

    SO he didn’t trot out a 25 year old pregnant fiancee? I’m kinda shocked.

    • OverFirstAve. says:

      No he hung with costArs, enjoying his night. I don’t think Jon would go for a 20something.
      Can’t see that happening.

      • Jayna says:

        Agreed. I don’t get why people go there. He was with a longtime love that petered out. He’s in his 40s and I see him with a woman who has lived a little in life, at least in her 30s. I don’t see him with a younger 20 something. I don’t think he could related.

      • Colette says:

        Just curious did you think fortysomething Johnny Depp would leave Vanessa and end up with 25 year old Amber Heard?

      • Anne says:

        @Colette – Nice one. I, for one, did not.

      • Supposedtobeworking says:

        @Colette – yes. Depp always wanted marriage. I assumed a younger woman would lack the perspective to consider what being with him would require and mean for her.

    • dr mantis toboggan says:

      No, I couldn’t make it that night. Just kidding, obviously, I’m not 25

      • evermore says:

        YES, I always thought Johnny Depp might leave Vanessa(because he never married her* Also, , he has a pattern, Long relationships for years then he finds another long relationship for years.

        Years ago, I also always thought Jon Hamm would split from his longtime partner, not sure why, but I did. She always seemed on a different page in the relationship than him. jmo

      • Whiskeyjack says:

  11. kri says:

    Alan cumming is like a cat in human form. I worship him.

  12. ldub says:

    LMAO at the title to this post.

  13. Yeses says:

    Ahhh John Stewart, the eyes, the grey, the beard, the intelligence, the sense of humor…damn!!! I’m sorry, what are we talking about again?

  14. korra says:

    The woman supported him when he was a nobody and she still gets thanked after the dog. My respect for Jon Hamm continues to dwindle.

    • boredblond says:

      No matter what, I just can’t stop liking the guy. Speaking of men..interesting how the pc shows Veep and Colbert report have no female writers?

  15. me says:

    I found the Emmy’s really boring…I didn’t even watch the whole thing. I don’t think they deserve as much coverage as they are getting on this site to be honest. Any other celeb news to talk about that’s more interesting lol?

    • Astrid says:

      I second this! Please more celebrity gossip. I’m tired of the Emmy’s already. Saw on Yahoo that JustJen might be in a rough patch LOL

  16. Lindy79 says:

    Conleth Hill, after seeing interviews with him I have fallen a bit in love with him. He’s hilarious.

    Alan Cumming, is he auditioning for Gotham? Either way I bloody love him so I don’t care.

    Hamm, honestly your dog before your partner of 17+ years? You’d have been better to have said nothing….

    • Jayna says:

      When thanking your loved ones, often the last person in that group is your significant other, meaning the most important.

      • Colette says:

        I agree the lady from Orange is the New Black thanked a dozen people but the last person was her sister/best friend.

      • tracking says:

        Yes, Jayna, that’s how I took it as well.

      • laura in LA says:

        I agree, Jayna, because the last name mentioned also lingers in everyone’s mind.

        As for award acceptance speeches, I know these are actors who should be prepared to say something for one of the greatest moments of their lives, and I do like to make fun of some of them for it…

        But I’m pretty sure if it were me up there, I couldn’t even recite the alphabet, nevermind remember my own name besides any others.

      • Christin says:

        Yes, possibly because the person speaking is trying to recognize (remember) everyone else besides the “known” important person in his or her life. Not thinking it’s a big deal to be the last mentioned.

  17. Blanca Moran says:

    jon thanked a bunch of people in a row and the very last one was Jen, I don’t see the fuzz. People is really surprising before couldn’t stop bashing her for being so plain now is poor Jen.

  18. Diana says:

    Jon Hamm is so sexy to me. Love me some wounded man-child.

  19. Sea Dragon says:

    I always thought one of the reasons Jon got the job is because of his 5 o’clock beard. Dude looks like Fred Flintstone without the belly. Very 60’s.
    I think he deserved the win. Too bad he’s a horrible person. I hope he goes away now.

  20. Longhairdontcare says:

    Females tend to over analyze. If this was my ex id do the same thing. Hell if my bf doesnt spell out i love you and says ilu im insulted lol. I agree with the above poster, he saved the best for last

  21. sarah says:

    Jon Hamm is so hot jesus.. and that roll onto the stage to accept award thing shouldn’t have been charming but it was, extremely.
    Alfie Allen looks great, Jon Stewart looked dad-hot, Nikolaj needs a nap, and unfortunately I think Adrien Brody looks sexy.. god, why.

  22. Emmygrant says:

    I can’t believe it never occurred to me that those two could’ve knocked boots. Of course–it’s too obvious. Hiding in plain sight. BTW I read elsewhere that he didn’t thank Matthew Weiner, creator of Mad Men. Is there bad blood there?

  23. renee28 says:

    People often thank the most important people last. Plus she’s an ex. Jon didn’t have to mention her at all.

  24. sarah6 says:

    Jon Hamm is sex on legs.

  25. GlimmerBunny says:

    My #1 crush Nikolaj Coster Waldau is looking AMAZINGLY HOT. Tired and jetlagged???

  26. Stacey says:

    Don’t leave us, Jon Stewart! ::::sob::::

  27. sfrowguy says:

    When you say “Dog”, do you mean the four-legged kind or the no-legged kind?

  28. Nev says:

    Brody is sex on legs too.

  29. Queen says:

    Alan cumming is the best! Cracks me up that he wore crocs with his suit!

  30. Sue says:

    For some reason, the fact that he sort of pole vaulted over the stage, really rubbed me the wrong way. I sort of felt he was saying – “I’m too special or important to have to walk the long way like everyone else and take the stairs.” Maybe my read on it is wrong, but he just seemed very arrogant.
