Emmy Awards 2015: Jon Hamm wins for "Mad Men"

Jon Hamm of "Mad Men" broke his losing streak on Sunday, walking away with the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series. This marked his eight nomination in the category -- and first win.

The actor, who recently split from longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt, said goodbye to the hit AMC show earlier this year -- so this really was his last chance to win for the series.

Hamm, who played Don Draper on "Mad Men," told the audience, "There's been a mistake, clearly. It's impossible to be named with all of those extraordinary gentlemen. It's impossible to have done this show with this incredible cast, these incredible people, our incredible writers, our incredible crew. And it's incredible and impossible for me, personally, to be standing up here."

The AMC series wrapped earlier this year and had previously won the Best Drama Emmy four times.
