Competing with Breaking Bad in the Program of the Year category are NBC’s Friday Night Lights, Fox’s Glee, and ABC’s Lost and Modern Family. In the Best Drama category, Breaking Bad will be up against ABC’s Lost, FX’s Sons of Anarchy, CBS’s Good Wife, and AMC’s own Mad Men.
Cranston and Paul, in addition to competing with each other for the Individual Achievement in Drama award, will face Dexter‘s John Lithgow (Showtime), The Good Wife‘s Julianna Margulies, and Sons of Anarchy‘s Katey Sagal.
