Bryan Cranston Wins Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama at 2014 Emmys

2014 Emmy Nominations Predictions

Monday’s Emmys ceremony separated the men from — well, the other men.

RELATED Emmys 2014: And the Winners Are…

Bryan Cranston took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his work as the (probably) late, definitely great Walter White on AMC’s Breaking Bad. It was his fifth Emmy win and 14th nomination.

“I love to act,” Cranston said. “It is a passion of mine and I will do it till my last breath.” (Funny, I’m pretty sure Walter White said the same thing about cooking meth!)

Winning this award was, by no means, an easy feat. Cranston was up against the biggest names in small-screen drama, including The Newsroom‘s Jeff Daniels, Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm, True Detective‘s Woody Harrelson, True Detective‘s Matthew McConaughey and House of Cards‘ Kevin Spacey.

Do you think Cranston deserved to win, or would you have given the Emmy to another deserving actor? Drop a comment with your thoughts on Cranston’s victory below.

    While I wouldn’t have been surprised if he didn’t I’m very happy Bryan Cranston won for his final year. Everything about the final episodes of Breaking Bad was perfect and I’m glad it’ll go out on top.

    He’ll always be Walter White forever.

    Happy he won again. He deserve it!

    I’m so glad he won. And Anna Gunn won, too! Her heartfelt speech brought tears to me, and I wasn’t even going to watch her acceptance (I was happy she won but it was time for a break) but I’m so glad I did stay to watch. She was just wonderful, displaying the right balance of nervousness and gratitude, key elements which seem to be missing in recent years from worthy and not-so-worthy winners. The only thing that would have made her speech perfect? Saying at the end: I was on Seinfeld, too. So Julia, do you want to make out? (LOL – I don’t really mean that, but who can deny it would have been funny?)
