Sing it with us: Yeah, bitch!

Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston took him the statue for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Drama for his haunting turn as Walter White at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, Jan. 18, where the show's cast also took home the Actor statuette for Outstanding Ensemble in a Drama.

And in a truly un-Heisenberg move, Cranston broke out in song while accepting the award for his performance.

"I won a SAG Award!" he sang to the delight of the crowd. But he wasn't done surprising us just yet.

Cranston then used his time at the podium to fangirl over Saving Mr. Banks star Emma Thompson, who took the stage at the 2014 Golden Globes with a martini in hand and wearing no shoes.

"A week ago, I was at a banquet I saw, out of the corner of my eye, Emma Thompson coming over, fighting her way through tables and looking over," he recalled. "I thought, "Oh my god, that's Emma Thompson. That's Emma Thompson.'"

Cranston then went on to say he was surprised to find out Thompson was actually coming over to talk to him. "She came up to me and I lost it. I didn't know what to say! That's what happens when you're so lucky," he gushed.

The Breaking Bad star then talked about how he had some truly "crappy" jobs before becoming a household name, thanks to his turn on Malcolm in the Middle, and later, the AMC hit drama.

"I loaded trucks downtown, coal, dust, dirt everywhere, every orifice. People yelling at you, 'Cranston, move faster! Work harder!' And the only thing that got me through was imagining, dreaming one day that I could actually make a living as an actor," she said. "That's what got me through .Thank god. We are the luckiest people in the world who say 'I am an actor.'"
