“I feel like I’m going to throw up.” That’s how Aaron Paul kicked off his speech after winning the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama for his role as Jesse Pinkman in “Breaking Bad.”
This was the 33-year-old’s third Emmy Award for his work on “Breaking Bad.” This year he was up against Josh Charles of “The Good Wife,” Mandy Patinkin of “Homeland,” Jon Voight of “Ray Donovan,” Jim Carter of “Downton Abbey” and Peter Dinklage of “Game of Thrones.”
Paul explained that “Breaking Bad” and its creator, Vince Gilligan, changed his life. “Thank you for believing in me,” he said, directing his speech towards Gilligan. “Trusting me to play this guy. I miss him. I love him.”
The actor proceeded to give a shout out to the “best cast and crew” he has “ever” worked with before – including Bryan Cranston.
“Bryan, there is not a single day that goes by that I do not miss running to work to work opposite of you, my friend,” Paul said to his visibly proud co-star. “I’ve learned so much on-screen and off.”
Paul also thanked his wife, Lauren Parsekian, for marrying him and encouraged viewers to check out her charity, the Kind Campaign.
