Breaking Bad scored three Golden Globe nominations on Thursday (December 12).
Since everyone seems to absolutely adore the acclaimed AMC series, it’s not altogether surprising that the show scored a few nods from the Golden Globes. According to The Huffington Post, the program is up for “Best Drama Series,” “Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama” and “Best Supporting Actor in a TV Series, Drama.”
Fans of Breaking Bad can see what honors the show receives early next year. The 71st Annual Golden Globe ceremony is currently scheduled to take place on Sunday, January 12. If you’d love to see your favorite series take home all three honors, then start crossing your fingers now.
Of course, Vince Gilligan’s tale of a high school chemistry teacher’s descent into the world of meth production isn’t the only acclaimed series that scored some Golden Globe nominations. In addition to Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, House of Cards, and Masters of Sex are up for “Best Drama Series” this year.
Competing with Bryan Cranston for best dramatic actor are Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan), Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex), Kevin Spacey (House of Cards), and James Spader (The Black List). However, folks on Twitter think the Breaking Bad star is a shoe-in for the award.
As for co-star Aaron Paul, he’s up against Josh Charles (The Good Wife), Rob Lowe (Behind the Candelabra), Corey Stoll (House of Cards), and Jon Voight (Ray Donovan) for this year’s best supporting actor in a dramatic television series, miniseries, or TV movie.
