The American actor, who was awarded for his outstanding performance in 'Mad Men' was so thrilled on receiving the award that he ditched the stairs and rolled up directly while coming up on the stage, E! Online reported.
The 44-year-old actor looked somewhat stunned and bit relieved while accepting his first award in any acting category for the critically acclaimed AMC show, which has now signed off after completing seven seasons.
Hamm thanked his dog Cora and former girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt during his acceptance speech.
The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony was held on September 20 at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California.
