‘Breaking Bad’ Wins Outstanding Drama Series at the 2013 Emmy Awards
While Aaron Paul lost to ‘Boardwalk Empire”s Bobby Cannavale in the Supporting Actor in a Drama category and Bryan Cranston lost to ‘The Newsroom”s Jeff Daniels for Lead Actor in a Drama, the hit AMC drama and fan favorite ‘Breaking Bad’ took home top honors.
Will Ferrell came out on stage for a comedic bit to announce the award, which BBC’s ‘Downton Abbey,’ HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones,’ Netflix’s ‘House of Cards,’ and fellow AMC series ‘Mad Men’ were all vying for, as well. Poor, ‘Mad Men,’ right? It got snubbed last year, too.
Previously in the night, Anna Gunn, who plays Skyler White on ‘Breaking Bad,’ took home the 2013 Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, while Paul in past years won twice for his role as Jesse Pinkman and Cranston three times for his now-famous Walter White.
‘Breaking Bad’ is set to air its series finale episode next Sunday, September 29.
