2012 Emmy Awards: Aaron Paul Wins Outstanding Supporting Actor in Drama for ‘Breaking Bad’
Seriously, how adorable is Aaron Paul? “Thank you for not killing me off,” said the ‘Breaking Bad’ star, as he accepted his second consecutive Emmy for the role of Jesse Pinkman. Paul referred to series creator Vince Gilligan’s initial plan for the Jesse Pinkman character, which would have seen him dead inside the first several episodes. Instead, Aaron Paul walked away tonight with the 2012 Emmy award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama!
Paul faced some impressive competition for the award, including his own co-star Giancarlo Esposito, nominated for his turn as face-blasting ‘Breaking Bad’ baddie Gus Fring! Also nominated was Jared Harris of ‘Mad Men,’ Peter Dinklage for ‘Game of Thrones,’ and a couple of ‘Downton Abbey’ guys we’ve never heard of.
Well, what do you think? Did Paul disserve the Emmy, the second win of his three nominations? Long live Jesse Pinkman, long live Aaron Paul, and long live ‘Breaking Bad!’ Yeah, bitch!
