Breaking Bad Goes out In Style with Golden Globe Wins

Breaking Bad departed last year, leaving a slew of wanting fans in its wake. Hailed as one of the best TV shows of its generation, AMC’s meth drama continued the rise of the boxset craze, making stars out of the likes of Aaron Paul.

But as TV fans look for alternatives – HBO’s True Detective looks to be an apt one – Breaking Bad still hits the news, picking up the Best TV Drama at the Golden Globes, its first Globe despite numerous nominations.

Cranston, too, was rewarded for his work in season 5 of the explosive drama. “This is such a wonderful honour and such a lovely way to say goodbye to a show that has meant so much to me,” he said, according to The Telegraph.

He was has been nominated for the Best Actor in a Series, Drama, consecutively since 2011, but this is the first time he has won it.

Backstage, Cranston told Telegraph reporter Nick Allen, "The fans have lifted it up to this level none of us could have anticipated. Even though Walter White is dead he seems to be able to stay alive somehow."

It’s an appropriate way for the show to bow out. The finale was lauded by many critics and fans as being a triumph, closing the numerous story strands in satisfying style. It was a ratings juggernaut, too, pulling in millions of views on Sunday nights for AMC.

And while it was a triumph on network television, streaming service Netflix also benefitted from harbouring Walter White’s exploits amongst its ranks. Netflix, however, for all of its original programming, didn’t have a great night. It’s early days for the modern style of TV watching, and you can expect next year to feature many more awards for on demand content.
