Emmy 2013: Anna Gunn of 'Breaking Bad' Wins Supporting Drama Actress

"Breaking Bad's" cast is on fire at the Emmy's tonight as Anna Gunn got her first Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series for her role as Walter White's wife Skyler in the AMC series.
This is the second nomination for the 45-year old actress who is a native of Mexico and beat HBO's "Game of Thrones" Emilia Clarke, CBS "The Good Wife" Christine Baranski, Showtime's "Homeland" Morena Baccarin, AMC's "Mad Men" Christina Hendricks and PBS' "Downtown Abbey" Maggie Smith, the lasy year's winner for the category.
The "Breaking Bad" stunning actress wore a black and white strapless Romona Kavesa gown. She looks amazing with the gown's textured details as she prefers to be glam than the jeans-wearing Skyler.
Now Gunn has more reason to celebrate as the series comes to its final season. She was beaming with pride when she got her award, a well deserved award for the talented actress.
"Bryan Cranston just told me to breath," Gunn said excitedly as she took the stage and thanked cast and crew of the series. She highlights her speech by thankng the "mad genius" creator of the series, Vince Gilligan.
On the other hand, "Breaking Bad" co-star Bryan Cranston did not get the award for lead actor in a drama series and lost it to "Newsroom" star Jeff Daniels who absolutely did not expect the award.
"Well crap, I didn't expect this!" he said.
Set to end next week, "Breaking Bad" is on its final season after 5 seasons of drug making and primetime drama. Debuted in 2008, the series is about a former high school chemistry teacher Walter White who was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer and becomes a crystal meth "cook" and a drug kingpin just to secure his family's financial future before he dies.
He then teams up with his former student Jesse Pinkman played by Aaron Paul for his drug making and selling scheme. Anna Gunn plays his wife Skyler White who got involved in the money laundering business just to protect Walter and to conceal his identity.
