Breaking Bad Winning Big
One of the most talked about, and critically acclaimed shows EVER is AMC's Breaking Bad. The show winds up its heart-pounding, intense, and addictive narrative next Sunday.
"The ending is perfect," Bryan Cranston said of the series finale. "Unapologetic. It is perfect Breaking Bad." And the show is, indeed, going out with a bang. They won the most coveted award of the night, they received the Emmy for the most outstanding drama series.
"Holy crap! I did not see this coming," said the show's creator Vince Gilligan, and frankly neither did we. Although Ann Gunn won for the Most Outstanding Lead Actress for her role in Breaking Bad, neither Bryan Cranston nor Aaron Paul were deemed winners. The surprise and the pure joy on the faces of the cast and show creators was worth the wait, since it was the last award of the night.
