Breaking Bad won a second Emmy last night and it was a major one at that. Bryan Cranston walked away with the statuette for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series beating out James Spader (Boston Legal), Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Hugh Laurie (House), Gabriel Byrne (In Treatment) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men).
Said Bryan Cranston upon picking up his equally bald statuette, “I guess the restraining order has been lifted,” in reference to his first Emmy win after two past nominations.
At last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys Breaking Bad took home its first Emmy when Lynne Willingham won for Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series. In total, AMC won eight Emmys with Mad Men winning for Outstanding Drama, Writing, Hairstyling, Cinematography, and Title Design. For more on the Mad Men victory, click here.
