Amy Poehler + Jon Hamm Had a Party for Losers of the 2013 Emmys Because They’re Perfect
Because Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler are human perfection and beacons of charm, of course they’d have the best 2013 Emmys afterparty ever. And because they’re cooler than your faves, of course it would be for the losers.
“We figured that the winners get celebrated enough so we thought it was about time that the losers get celebrated,” Hamm told E! News of the annual soiree. “And Poehler and I are friends from a long time ago and every year when we would lose the Emmy we would kind of wink at each other and call each other loser for the rest of the night.”
The idea for the party was born when Kristen Wiig hosted her own bash and the attendees realized that none of them were carrying trophies. Hamm continued, “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.'”
But that doesn’t mean Emmy winners are shut out of the shindig. They’re more than welcome … but there’s a catch. An awesome catch, because, well, it’s Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler, and that’s what they do.
“You have to actually check your Emmy at the door and donate a $1,000 dollars to a charity,” Hamm’s longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt said. “We might end up doing a lot for humanity on Sunday night!”
Doesn’t that news make you never want to finish first ever again?
