Welcome to the Breaking Bad Awards!

In a not-so-shocking turn of events, it was a clean sweep for the final season of the AMC smash, including the award for Outstanding Drama Series. This was the second consecutive Emmy win for the drama juggernaut, and the award was accepted by creator and executive producer Vince Gilligan.

In addition, Bryan Cranston took home the top prize for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama, while both of his former co-stars Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn snagged the honors for Outstanding supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama, respectively.
