73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards - Press RoomIt's been eight years since the 2007-2008 writers strike shook up Hollywood, disrupting the production of television and films for 100 days. Among the casualties of the strike was the 65th Golden Globe Awards, which skipped the traditional telecast in favor of a press conference announcing the winners in January 2008. Jon Hamm was among those victorious on that odd night, though as the actor recently revealed, his award is distinctive for a different reason.

In an interview with Vanity Fair this week at the Sundance Film Festival, Hamm discussed his win, which came for the first season of "Mad Men." It remained the only awards recognition the actor received for the series's seven-season run until he took home the Emmy in 2015 (and received another Globe just last month), but unfortunately for the actor, there was something a little off about his statuette.

The award, which Hamm said was sent to him after the press conference "in the mail," has a plaque on which the Hollywood Foreign Press Association "spelled my name wrong," he told VF.

"I was like, 'Oh man, guys, there's no H,'" Hamm recalled of seeing "John Hamm" scrawled on his statuette. "I haven't gotten the little plaque to stick on the new one yet, so hopefully they'll figure out ... it's J-O-N. Or Jonathan."

We can only hope. Show Don Draper some respect, HFPA!
