“BREAKING BAD”

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series

BRYAN CRANSTON

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series

("Breaking Bad")

Do you ever watch past episodes of “Breaking Bad”?

Jonathan Banks: I do. Just the episodes I’m in.

Aaron Paul: I started watching the series from the pilot. When we started watching the final eight episodes, I started re-watching the show. I’m on Season 2 now.

Dean Norris: I heard it’s got a great ending.

Betsy Brandt: Don’t tell me what happens.

Do you feel like completely different from when you first started “Breaking Bad”?

Paul: Yeah, I look like such a baby.

Norris: You were a baby!

Brandt: You still look like a baby, honey.

Paul: Thank you.

Norris: I’ve got pictures of this guy six years ago, and he’s just a sweet little boy. And now he’s a grown-up.

Brandt: We’re so proud.

Banks: Dean was uglier six years ago and still is.

Norris: He’s a sweet man.

Brandt: We were just saying tonight that even in Season 1, we felt so lucky when we were shooting it. All of the acknowledgment is great, but we felt so lucky from the beginning, because we knew how amazing the show was and this group was. And it was just a wonderful experience for all of us.

You’ve had a great run of winning awards for the final season of “Breaking Bad”? How are you going to keep these great relationships going when you don’t have the excuse of awards shows to get together?

Brandt: We call that tequila.

Norris: Golf and shots.

Paul: We grew such an incredible bond on this show. From the pilot, we knew that we were doing something special. We knew from day one that these friendships weren’t going to die when this show died. This show is definitely going to live on, I think, forever. And our friendships will definitely live on forever as well.

Banks: I’ll say the same thing. I’ve been around forever.

Cranston: Thank you everybody for all your support throughout the years. We wouldn’t have been able to have that. And this is such a glorious way to go out. We’re so happy. Thank you for all the support and being the conduit to all the people who caught on to our show. Thank you very much.

Brandt: Thank you.
