‘Breaking Bad’ Wins Outstanding Performance By An Ensemble in a Drama Series At 2014 SAG Awards
Tina Fey named the nominees for outstanding performance by a television drama cast — after she made a hilarious mini-speech, of course — and seemed overjoyed to announce Breaking Bad as the eventual victor. Walter White himself, Bryan Cranston, took the stage to accept the award from Tina and give a heartfelt speech about his cast and the show’s creator..
“We have the nicest bunch of white supremacist nazis I have worked with,” he joked, referring to the rough-looking gents who served as his nemesis during the show’s final season. “I swear to you, I would kill you all over again.”
Then he sincerely thanked the show’s bespectacled creator Vince Gilligan, saying, “We are humbled by your talent.”
Breaking Bad was up against some pretty stiff competition at this year’s SAG Awards. The other nominees for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series were Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones and Homeland.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did the Breaking Bad cast deserve to win?
