As we wait for the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards to take place on September 22, we are beginning to hear a lot of speculation about who the big winners will be this year. Even the TV geniuses at Insticator can't predict this year's Emmy outcomes, but we will certainly try!
One show we are following particularly closely this year during Emmy's season is the ever popular "Breaking Bad." Although we are always keeping tabs on the AMC drama, this year will be specifically interesting because this August marks the show's final episodes. With strong acting by the entire "Breaking Bad" cast and extreme edge-of-your-seat drama, we wouldn't be surprised if the series stacked up some awards this season.
Bryan Cranston, who places the drug king Walter White, has won three Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor In a Drama! However, last year in 2012, his winning streak ended when Damian Lewis took the cake for the coveted award. Will Cranston pull through and win his forth and final Lead Actor award for "Breaking Bad"? We certainly hope so.
Aaron Paul, who places Walt's side kick Jessie Pinkman, is also up for an award, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama. Paul is no stranger to winning Emmy awards either. He's won for supporting actor twice in the past and we bet he's gunning to take the award this year too.
"Breaking Bad" is up for a number of other awards as well such as Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series and one of the biggest awards of the night, Outstanding Drama Series. With two writers up for the category of best writer, we are betting the AMC series has a chance of taking out its competition.
Will "Breaking Bad" rack up the most awards of any drama? While it may be nominated for less awards than its competition, such as "Game of Thrones", we have faith that the final season of the award winning show will live up to the high standards it has set for itself.
Let's all hope that "Breaking Bad" will end up breaking ground this year at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards.
