Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul wins a much-deserved Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in Drama.
The 31-year-old was shocked and suprised when his name was called.
“I’m part of a show that I’m so unbelievably thankful for,” Paul said during his acceptance speech. “I’m up here for one reason, and that is because of Vince Gilligan, our creator and showrunner. What he does and what the rest of our brilliant staff of writers do every week is mind-blowing.” He comforted his mother who he knew was crying at home. “Bryan Cranston, to work with you every single day is a dream! I love you, brother, you have no idea!”
Paul beat out John Slattery (Mad Men), Martin Short (Damages), Terry O’ Quinn (Lost), Michael Emerson (Lost) and Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age).
