As Jesse Pinkman yearned to see the stars in Sunday's episode of "Breaking Bad," the cast of the soon-to-be-finished AMC drama found themselves the luminous point of Emmys night.
The gritty series took home the prize for best drama at the end of the night -- the first in the critically acclaimed drama's five-season run.
"This is the answer to wishes and prayers of mine," Bryan Cranston, who plays villainous Walter White, told reporters backstage. "I've been blessed in the past. But I really wanted [the show to win]. We get to celebrate the entire writing [staff], crew and cast. This if for all the crew that has worked so hard for us for all these years. This is one hell of a party."
And even though Cranston and co-pilot Aaron Paul, who plays the street savvy student-turned-partner-turned nemesis Jesse Pinkman, went home empty-handed, the acting categories weren't a total loss for the show. Anna Gunn, who plays the polarizing Skylar, found some vindication with her win in the supporting actress category -- putting the Skylar haters in their place.
