This year, Jon Hamm took home his second Golden Globes award for playing Don Draper on AMC's Mad Men!

But technically speaking, Jon Hamm only has the most recent trophy under his name — and John Hamm has the other!

Speaking to Vanity Fair at the Sundance Film Festival, the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt actor revealed that when he won his Golden Globe back in 2008, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association misspelled his name on the trophy!

Due to the writers strike that year, the traditional Globes ceremony didn't happen — instead, the winners were announced at a news conference that day!

And Hamm remembered getting his award in the mail later on, only to discover it was for "John Hamm" — he recalled:

"I was like, ‘Oh man. Uh, guys, there's no ‘H'."

Awww! We'd feel bad for him if he wasn't a two time award winner! LOLz!

We're sure the association won't make the same mistake when they mail Hammm the plaque this year! Oh shoot…
