Amy Poehler and Jon Hamm threw Emmy losers party


Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler threw a post Emmy Awards bash for the losers last night.

The Mad Men actor (42), who was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, revealed he and the Parks and Recreation actress (42), who was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, decided to host an exclusive party together because they didn't expect to win and had such a great time at Kristen Wiig's afterparty when she lost the award for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series to Modern Family star Julie Bowen last year.

Jon told E! News, "We called it the Losers Lounge because nobody that was there won and it kind of stuck. We were, like, 'That was a really fun party. We should do that again, but we should do it bigger and better and invite our friends who aren't going to win either and we'll have a good time with it’."

The duo, who also both lost out on awards last year, said they’d welcome any Emmy winners who wished to attend their party but they’d be required to leave their statues at the door and donate $1 000 (R10 000) to a charity of their choice.
