Jon Hamm Jon Hamm

What a reaction Mad Men's Jon Hamm got to his nomination for best actor in a drama: "I was in bed with [girlfriend] Jennifer [Westfeldt] and my mutt Cora, who farted in my face. Not cool. She's sort of over it all." After that special acknowledgement, Hamm says, "there was a flurry of texts between John Slattery, Lizzy Moss and Christina Hendricks and I. And I sent a text to Miss [January] Jones, but have not heard a response yet. I am very certain she is still asleep."

Hamm's favorite episode of last season was "The Gypsy and The Hobo," in which his character's secret double life exposed to wife Betty. "It was beautifully written and shot." He's equally thrilled for pal Kyle Chandler's first nomination for Friday Night Lights. "I can't believe it finally happened. I was so happy to see him and Connie [Britton] recognized because they've been doing it so long and so great. I wish them the moon! Kyle and I had small parts in The Day the Earth Stood Still so we had a lot of time to get to know each other. But I may have lost his phone number, so if he reads this—please call me!"
