Jon Hamm Wins Best Actor in a Drama at 2016 Golden Globes

An ad man, a hacker, a drug lord, a lawyer and a fixer went head to head during Sunday’s Golden Globes. Frankly, we’re just lucky they all came out alive.

Five of television’s finest were up for the award of Best Actor in a Drama Series — Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm, Mr. Robot‘s Rami Malek, Narcos‘ Wagner Moura, Better Call Saul‘s Bob Odenkirk and Ray Donovan‘s Liev Schreiber — and while we’d have given them all a Coke Globe if we could, that’s not really how this game is played.

Hamm ended up snagging the coveted statue for his work on the AMC drama’s final season.

“Thank you for including me in this insanely talented group of actors,” he began, admitting, “I really did not think I was going to do this.”

Turning his attention to Mad Men boss Matthew Weiner, he added, “Thank you for not taking my suggestion and ending the entire series on Chumbawamba. You picked the right song.”
