As Jesse Pinkman would say, “Yeah, b****!” The final season of “Breaking Bad” won two statues at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards: Best TV Series — Drama and Best Actor — TV Drama for fearless leader Bryan Cranston.
Cranston won his award first — his first Golden Globe ever, in fact — calling it “such a wonderful way to goodbye to the show that meant so much to me. I was always very grateful that the show resonated with American audiences, but now through this, and the Hollywood Foreign Press, everyone around the world will be able to share in ‘Breaking Bad”s mirth and merriment.”
But he didn’t have to go far, as the show won its first — and last — award for Best TV Drama. Creator Vince Gilligan accepted the award for the show, saying, “The best thing about this I think is that it gives all the people up here … one more chance to thank the fans of the show, especially the early adopters, [the ones who watched in] the grim days when we had very little viewership. Thanks for helping us get to here.”
Gilligan then called up Aaron Paul to sum up the “Breaking Bad” crew’s feelings on the matter as only the great Jesse Pinkman could put it: “Yeah b****! Thank you.”
