Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler's Emmy Losers Party!

23 Sep 2013

It's the anti-party! Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler reveal why they're throwing an Emmy losers bash!

Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler are throwing a post Emmy Awards bash for the losers.

The Mad Men actor, 42, who was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series (and lost), has revealed he and the Parks and Recreation actress, 42, who is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series (and also lost), decided to host an exclusive party together because they 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.

He 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 will welcome any Emmy winners who wish to attend their party but they will be required to leave their statues at the door and donate $1,000 to a charity of their choice.

Some 3,800 guests are expected to attend The Governors Ball at the Los Angeles Convention Centre, which will take place immediately after the ceremony and has an "enchanted forest" theme.
