Jon Hamm's Name Is Spelled Wrong On His First Golden Globe
Watch this on The Scene.
Jon Hamm sat down with Vanity Fair's Krista Smith at Sundance, and casually mentioned that his first Golden Globe, won in 2008 for his portrayal of Don Draper on Mad Men, misspelled his name.The award was won during the writer's strike, so Hamm received it in the mail. He said:
And it was spelled wrong, which was awesome. And I was like, guys...there's no "h." And I haven't gotten the little plaque to stick on the new one yet, so hopefully if you're out there watching, it's "J-O-N."
The rest of the (too) brief video is actually quite charming; Hamm comments on his "chimney sweep" attire, but he might be the only man in the world able to pull off a pageboy cap and skinny scarf.
The other interviews conducted by Vanity Fair at Sundance are worth a quick watch, too. There's one of Maude Apatow talking about her dad Judd judging her tweets, and Chelsea Handler on smoking weed with Willie Nelson, and Don Cheadleon the lack of diversity at the Oscars.
Here's a screenshot taken from the video of
