It's a win, bitch!
Capping off an epic five-season run of the hit AMC show Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul took home the Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his outstanding performance as Jesse Pinkman.
Although many predicted Paul would win (including us!), the 34-year-old thesp beat out some stiff competition—including Downton Abbey's Jim Carter, The Good Wife's Josh Charles, Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage, Homeland's Mandy Patinkin and Ray Donovan's Jon Voight—and was clearly as he took the stage after giving his wife Lauren an adorable smooch in the audience.

"Oh wow, I feel like I'm going to throw up," Paul said as he accepted the accolade before applauding the fellow actors in the category. "My God, Breaking Bad, it has changed my life and I'm standing up here because of one man and that is Vince Gilligan. Thank you so much, Vince. Thank you for believing in me and trusting in me to play this guy. I miss him. I love him, the best cast and crew I've ever worked with before."
"Bryan [Cranston], there's not a single day that goes by that I do not miss running to work to be able to work opposite of you my friend," he continued. "I've learned so much on screen and off. Thank you, thank you. Cast, I love you guys. My friends, my family. And to my wife, my god, thank you for marrying me, thank you for dedicating your life to spreading kindness across the world, we all appreciate it."
This is Paul's third Emmy win and fifth nomination.
