Aaron Paul really said it best. "Yeah, bitch!"
That's how he summed up the back-to-back Golden Globe wins for AMC's beloved drama, "Breaking Bad," which collected awards for Best Actor in a Television Series - Drama and Best Television Series - Drama on Sunday night.
Bryan Cranston's win was (surprisingly) his first for the role of Walter White, the chemistry teacher-turned-meth lord at the heart of "Breaking Bad." Though he won three Emmys in a row for the part, Cranston hadn't captured a Golden Globe until Sunday.
Cranston took to the stage to thank the series' creator, Vince Gilligan, who guided the show throughout its five seasons. The two would meet onstage shortly after, when the winner of the next award was announced.
"Breaking Bad" has been on an awards hot streak since September, when it won its first Emmy for Best Series, Drama. That string of wins continued at the Globes when the White family took the stage with Gilligan and the rest of the cast. Gilligan thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and expressed hopes that a win at the Globes would help international audiences find the show.
From the very beginning of its run, "Breaking Bad" has slowly found both its audience and its critical love. All the way back in 2008, when Walter White was still a pretty decent guy, not many people would be able to recognize blue meth as the signature of the legendary Heisenberg, but by the final season, it was the show everyone was talking about.
And now the awards are rolling it.
