Mad Men - Jon Hamm Hosting Party For Emmy Losers

Mad Men star Jon Hamm is hosting a special party for the Emmy Award losers to cheer them up after Sunday night's (22Sep13) ceremony.

Hamm is nominated in the category for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Don Draper in Mad Men, but he is not expecting to win after having lost out on the trophy five times in previous years.

He has now decided to team up with another former Emmy loser, Amy Poehler, to host a party for everyone who misses out.

Hamm tells Eonline.com, "We figured that the winners get celebrated enough so we thought it was about time that the losers get celebrated. And Poehler and I are friends from a long time ago and every year when we would lose the Emmy we would kind of wink at each other and call each other loser for the rest of the night... We called it the Losers Lounge because nobody that was there won and it kind of stuck. We were like, 'That was a really fun party. We should do that again, but we should do it bigger and better and invite our friends who aren't going to win either and we'll have a good time with it.'"

Winners will only be allowed to attend the bash if they leave their Emmy Award at the door and make a $1,000 (£667) donation to charity.

Hamm faces competition from Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Damian Lewis (Homeland), Kevin Spacey (House Of Cards) and Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom). Poehler is contention for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Parks and Recreation.

The awards will be handed out at a ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
