Jon Hamm: 'It will be difficult to win Emmy for Mad Men'
Published Jun 21 2011, 02:29 BST | By Tara Fowler Jon Hamm
has revealed that he believes Mad Men
has no definitive moments that would lead him to win an Emmy Award.
The actor speculated on why he has yet to win an Emmy for his role as Don Draper on Mad Men
in a recent interview with TV Line
Hamm said: "There aren't many moments that you can point to and be like, 'That's the one that's going to win you an award' or something.
"But if you look at it as a whole, it's a pretty substantial thing to point to as an actor. I think there are plenty of examples of that in the history of television."
Hamm went on to reveal that he aspires to have a career like that of True Grit
star Jeff Bridges.
"One of the people whose careers I look at as an inspiration is a guy like Jeff Bridges, who has been around since he was 18 years old, has done work in drama and crazy Big Lebowski
comedy and now is finally getting recognised as a genius."
It was recently reported that Hamm is being considered for a Judd Apatow comedy opposite actress Melissa McCarthy
Last week, the actor said that Mad Men will end in three years
once its current three-season contract with AMC expires.Mad Men
