Jon Hamm has been waiting to give his Golden Globes speech for eight years, ever since he won for the first season of AMC's "Mad Men" during the 2007 ceremony that didn't air because of the writer's strike. Will he now win a bookend trophy for the show's closing season and finally have the chance to give his long-awaited Globes speech? Hurry — make your own predictions for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift certificate. It's fun and easy, so get started by scrolling down to predict who will win the Globe for Best TV Drama Actor.
According to exclusive Gold Derby odds that are derived from the predictions made by our Editors (website staff editors), Top 24 Users (the two dozen folks who did the best predicting last year's nominations) and other Users just like you, Hamm will be one of the five men nominated in this TV race. However, he only has 17/2 odds of winning.
Coming up short at an awards show is hardly something new for Hamm. After winning his Golden Globe off-camera in 2007, he lost four additional times with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (2008-10, 2012). Likewise, he was nominated a whopping 16 times at the Emmy Awards for "Mad Men," "30 Rock" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmit" but only won once, for the final season of "Mad Men" at this year's kudos.
"There has been a mistake," said a shocked Hamm when he finally took to the Emmy podium. "This is impossible to be named with all of those extraordinary gentlemen." Watch his full Emmy speech below.
Other top dramatic actors in contention this year are Kevin Spacey (5/1 odds) for Season 3 of "House of Cards," Sam Heughan (11/2 odds) for fan-favorite "Outlander," Terrence Howard (15/2 odds) for Fox's red-hot "Empire" and Rami Malek (15/2 odds) for the critically acclaimed "Mr. Robot."
