The AMC series, which wrapped its five-season run in late 2013, was presented with the Emmy for Best Drama Series during the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday.

“This is indeed a wonderful time to be working in television,” creator Vince Gilligan said, thanking “the best” actors, writers and crew members in the biz. “We’re all lucky to be working now.”

Other dramas up for the award included PBS’ Downton Abbey, HBO’s Game of Thrones, Netflix’s House of Cards, AMC’s Mad Men and HBO’s True Detective.

    More than deserving. So happy it won!

  2. Jenna says:

    I would have been happy if either Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones won. That said, the BB sweep of the top drama honors was nice to see as it takes its final bow.

  3. Tran says:

    So happy for Breaking Bad ending on a high note. One of the ten best TV dramas ever in my opinion. Last drama series which also ended on a high note: The Sopranos (HBO) back in 2007.

  4. Bwhit says:

    Yes! This was the best choice all around. BB is one of the best shows to ever air. So happy Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn and Bryan Cranston took individual honors.

  5. Joey Padron says:

    They deserve to win for a great final season. A great show. So happy about it!

    This show deserved to win,in all the categories it won in. Great Cast, Writers, etc.. When storytelling is this good and actors pour their hearts into their characters, it is great viewing. Congratulations Breaking Bad!!

    I know i’m in the minority but I watched a season and 1/2 of Breaking Bad before giving up I was so bored. I really hate how the emmy’s latch onto one show and it wins year after year.

  9. no it didn’t deserve to win and im sick to death of this meth drug addict show already. enough is enough. their are actors out there busting their ass every day and not getting respect drop dead breaking bad

  10. J says:

    I loved Breaking Bad! But for what True Detective did for 1 season, I think they deserved the win instead.

  11. Jimmy says:

    Not surprising, Breaking Bad is probably the best TV show I’ve ever watched, from the acting to the writing, the directing and producing, it’s just amazing. Congrats to Vince & Co as well as Bryan, Anna and Aaron for their wins!
