Jon Hamm finally wins Best Actor Emmy for 'Mad Men'

Emmy's 2015: Jon Hamm Finally Wins THE Emmy

The streak is over for the Susan Lucci of the Primetime Emmys as Jon Hamm finally won the award for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, for his role on AMC's "Mad Men."

He had been nominated for an Emmy six times prior, and had never won, easily holding the record for being the most nominated and never won.

"A mistake, clearly," the actor quipped when he finally made it onto the stage. "This is impossible, it's impossible to be named with all of those extraordinary gentleman. It's impossible to have done this show with this incredible cast, incredible writers, incredible crew... It's incredible and impossible for a person to be standing here."

Hamm thanked all the people who has helped him along the way to the Emmy podium, including his family and his reps.

"I would not be standing here without you," he said. "Thank you to everyone who watched the show."
