Hamm, who has collected an impressive total of six best actor nominations in the television drama category and two wins for his role as Don Draper in the hit show "Mad Men," had an unfortunate mishap with his award when he won the first time, in 2008.

Well, actually, according to the name on the statue he was given, Hamm didn't exactly win the award in 2008. Instead, John Hamm actually snagged the Globe. That's right, Hamm received a Golden Globe on which his name was spelled incorrectly ("John" instead of "Jon").

"I was like, 'Oh man,'" Hamm told Vanity Fair, "Uh, guys, there's no H."

Hamm won his second Golden Globe — his final award for the role of Don Draper, as "Mad Men" ended its seven-season run last year — at the most recent Golden Globes ceremony on January 10.
