One last award for Mr. Don Draper.

Jon Hamm just won Best Actor in a TV Drama at the 2016 Golden Globes for his legendary work on AMC's Mad Men, besting favored newcomer Rami Malek (Mr. Robot), fellow AMC star Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), as well as Wagner Moura (Narcos) and Liev Schrieber (Ray Donovan).

"Thank you so much to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for supporting our show for as long as you have, all the way to the end," Hamm said as he began his acceptance speech. "This is a very kind representation of that. And thank you for including me in this insanely talented group of actors who I am humbled to be mentioned with. I really did not think I was going to do this."

The actor also took the opportunity to thank the creator of the show one last time. "Thanks to Mr. Weiner who wrote this horrible person all the way through to the end of this incredible ride and picked me to play him," Hamm. "And thank you for not taking my suggestion and ending the entire series on Chumbawumba. You picked a great song. Thank you so much."

Award season is going to be a little less witty unless we find Jon Hamm another great role to win for, you guys.

Are you surprised by Hamm's win? Or did the right person take home the prize?
