JON HAMM: TOO HOT FOR THE EMMYS?

Are his good looks preventing Mad Men’s Jon Hamm from taking home an Emmy? According to award show expert Tom O’Neil, (goldderby.com) that is the explanation. This year Jon got his sixth nomination for his acclaimed series, but it’s unlikely he will ever win the trophy. O’Neil explains:
“Hollywood is run by a bunch of old geezer guys who say to these handsome leading men, ‘You have good looks, money, the babes, the whole world at your feet. Here’s the one thing you can’t have. We have power to withhold this one thing.’
The NY Post points out that handsome TV actors ARE often overlooked: George Clooney was nominated twice for E.R. and lost, nominees David Duchovny lost several times for The X Files, and Rob Lowe never won for The West Wing. So perhaps Jon Hamm can console himself with this theory when he leaves the award show empty handed yet again.
