Jon Hamm now has 13 Emmy nominations with ZERO wins.
He could very likely receive three more nods this year.
Which of these is his best chance to finally win. Explain your reasoning.
“Mad Men” producing (Best Drama Series).
“Mad Men” acting (Best Drama Actor).
“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” acting (Best Comedy Guest Actor).
He will not win this year.June 24, 2015 at 12:59 pm #351542
Winning for “Kimmy Schmidt” is pretty much a sure thing now I don’t know how anyone could beat that. Mad Men is still a battle because we don’t know who else will be nominated or what they will submit.June 24, 2015 at 1:02 pm #351543
My hope is that he wins for Drama Actor, since it’s the show’s final year and I believe it’ll do weel in nominations. I’d like to believe the show will not go without one actor winning and he is well liked by the Emmy’s with 13 noms. He’s probably the only shot the show has for an acting win.June 24, 2015 at 1:06 pm #351544
He sabotaged himself for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt by submitting the finale instead of the eleventh episode, so he is not winning there.
Mad Men is in a four-way race with House of Cards, Game of Thrones, and Orange is the New Black, so it could pull off a win, but let’s not forget that the first three episodes were mediocre compared to the last four. How deep will support for the show be? Can they get a second supporting actress in? Elisabeth Moss? Kiernan Shipka? Triple writing? It’s too early to say.
His best shot is in lead actor, where the voting change helps him, as it dilutes the impact of tapes. If Kyle Chandler is snubbed, he’ll be pretty much guaranteed the Emmy, but if Chandler is nominated, he could easily go home empty-handed because “Part 12” is such strong Emmy-bait.June 24, 2015 at 1:12 pm #351545
I would quite like him to win all three. I have him as winning all three anyway. In terms of likelihood, I’d say Guest Comedy Actor is most likely, then Drama Actor, then for producer as Drama Series.June 24, 2015 at 1:14 pm #351546
It depends on what episode he submits, even though I didn’t find any of the episodes this last season emmy worthy.June 24, 2015 at 1:27 pm #351547
His Kimmy Schmidt submission was totally wrong. I was totally sure he was going to win for that, but now he could be in trouble. I think he will win both for Mad Men. Could go 3/3 depending on the nominees in Guest Actor.June 24, 2015 at 1:36 pm #351548
I don’t see why it’s so impossible for Jon Hamm to win on these three tries. In Drama Series, I think it’s either “Mad Men” or “Game of Thrones” for the win, and there’s a good chance for a sendoff Emmy there and one for him as producer. For “UKS,” the finale had all of that video footage for Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, which should be OTT enough to do the trick with the great contrast there in Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. None of the “SNL” guys on the ballot are undeniable frontrunners like a Fallon or Timberlake, though I guess there’s some competition with Louis C.K. and Bill Hader. In the big Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, “Person to Person” might not scream “Emmy tape!,” but with the new voting, I think it will be enough for his win. Maybe “The Milk & Honey Route” packs more of a punch as an overall Don showcase, but the impact isn’t quite there like the series finale. 3/3 is entirely gettable.June 24, 2015 at 2:34 pm #351549
His best shot is Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt. His next best shot is as a producer.
I’d be amazed if he won in Drama Actor though. I highly doubt that Mad Men will win its first acting Emmy for what would be one of the weaker tapes submitted. But it also depends on who else is nominated. My feeling is that Kyle Chandler will be snubbed now and a lot of the best TV performances are likely to as well (Aidan Young, Matthew Rhys, Timothy Olyphant) and from the six episodes I stopped at, Bob Odenkirk did nothing Emmy worthy. I also stopped watching House of Cards at around episode 5 or 6 but anticipate Spacey will still be in the running despite the show never really giving him the kind of bait necessary to win. And I don’t watch Empire so while I’ve always enjoyed terrence Howard I can’t speak to his tape options. Right now, I’d personally put Hamm in #1 or #2 based on who I think will be nominated. But I’ve had him there before with much stronger material and tape and just as weak competition and they still didn’t give it to him.
If I had to put money down on any option though it would be he walks away empty handed again.June 24, 2015 at 2:50 pm #351550
He probably would prefer to win Best Actor for Mad Men but that’s not going to happen. It Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt he’s hilarious and laugh-out loud funny I don’t see him loosing this no one is close to challenging him.June 24, 2015 at 2:51 pm #351551
I think Mr. Hamm’s best shot for Emmy victory would be to star in an HBO historical docudrama on the Battle of the Bulge.June 24, 2015 at 3:15 pm #351552
I hope he wins for Mad Men. If he only wins an Emmy for guest actor in a comedy series, I see that as a slap in the face. Yes, it’s an Emmy, but for all of his great work on Mad Men he deserves a more prestigious title like Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (not Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series). I think it would be fair to give him both and definitely makes up for being so late to reward him.June 24, 2015 at 3:49 pm #351553
I think he might take both Acting awards. I don’t watch Mad Men but I think alot of people in the industry are hungry to reward Hamm they just didn’t want to do it at the expense of Cranston and they wanted to give Kyle Chandler a hug for Friday Night Lights. And because they watched that pilot of The Newsroom and were blown away by Jeff Daniels like I wasJune 24, 2015 at 4:29 pm #351554
