Breaking Bad Receives 13 Emmy Nominations

The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced this morning the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Award nominations, recognizing Breaking Bad with a total of 13 nominations — the most in the series’ history, including the first-ever writing nominations for the episodes “Dead Freight,” written by George Mastras, and “Say My Name,” written by Thomas Schnauz.

Three-time Emmy winner Bryan Cranston was once again nominated for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, and two-time Emmy winner Aaron Paul repeated in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category, along with a second consecutive nomination for Anna Gunn for Outstanding Supporting Actress and first time series nomination for Jonathan Banks for Outstanding Supporting Actor. The series also garnered nominations for Michelle MacLaren for Outstanding Directing, Michael Slovis for Outstanding Cinematography along with two nominations for Outstanding Editing and nominations for Outstanding Sound Editing and Outstanding Sound Mixing.

The nominations are part of 26 garnered by AMC, which ties the network this year with FX for the most nominations of any basic cable network and marks AMC’s sixth consecutive year with this distinction. In addition to Breaking Bad‘s nominations, Mad Men was honored with 12 nominations, an additional nomination for The Walking Dead as well as a nomination for AMC.com’s The Walking Dead Story Sync.
