emmy noms are out. breaking bad is nominated for best drama, cranston for best actor, aaron paul for best supporting actor, anna gunn for best supporting actor, but the one that got me most excited was giancarlo esposito for best supporting actor. i hope his nominee clip is him slitting victor's throat. or walking towards the machine gun fire with his arms outspread.
Would've loved to see Jonathan Banks and Dean Norris get nominated as well but I'm happy to at least see Giancarlo.
That whole Best Supporting Actor - Drama category is pretty aces. I'd be happy with any of them winning; they're all fantastic performances.
Well, Mr. Bates' storyline on Downton Abbey this season was kind of annoying, but if Mr. Carson wins I'll flip my shit (in a good way). He's the best. And of course, Paul, Esposito, Dinklage, or Jarred Harris are all very deserving.
That's so crazy! And by crazy I mean awesome. This made my day.
yes i did! for some reason, i didn't see that category on the emmy website.
goddamn hector salamanca better win.
The obvious solution is that they should melt down all the Emmys and give one giant super-Emmy to Jonathan Banks.
Also, everyone should keep track of how many times they yell "Holy Shit!" at their TV during this season. I'm at two so far.
The laptop was encrypted and useless to the police so by using the magnet to destroy it, the only thing they accomplished was breaking open the framed photo which led the cops to learn about the offshore accounts.
I love this show.

My good God, this fucking show.
I think it's actually more terrifying when things are going well and coming together because you know the other shoe dropping is going to be THE WORST and coming at any moment, which was already teased with the Walt and Mike conflict at the end. Especially with the knowledge that this is the beginning of the end, and there are now 15 episodes left total, 5 episodes until some kind of cliffhanger or big event to split up these two mini-seasons, it's apparent that shit's about to get fucked. My money is on it stemming from Skyler's terror.
Also -- Landry! Awesome.
Was Walt threatening Jesse at the end? My mind was boggled.
many tine tanies
This season is ending with one or more of these three dead by Walt's hand: Jesse, Skyler, or Mike. Or Walt being caught by Hank. Or all of the above.
As we recovered from a road trip by being lazy all day Sunday, my beautiful bride and I decided to re-watch the Pilot episode. That turned into re-watching the first 5 episodes of season 1, and we'll probably watch more. It's fascinating to watch, and see all the foreshadowing and symbolism.
I had also forgotten that season 1 starts on Walter's 50th birthday. His breakfast, prepared by Skylar, has veggie-bacon in the shape of a "50." The current season started with Walter breaking up bacon to form a "52" on his breakfast, and telling the diner waitress it was his 52nd birthday. Last night's episode took place around his 51st birthday. ("It's been a year since his diagnosis...") So, if we have another year in the life of Walter White to cover before we see what he does with the weapons he bought at the diner, I'm guessing we won't get to that part of the story until the final few episodes, next summer.
