Say his name, Hollywood Foreign Press Association: Bryan Cranston took home his first Golden Globe for playing Walter White on Breaking Bad.

Cranston was nominated for four times previously, once for Malcolm In The Middle. The AMC drama also took home the award for Best TV Drama, beating out the likes of The Good Wife, Masters of Sex, House of Cards and Downton Abbey.

Cranston said his award was a "wonderful honor" and "lovely way to say goodbye to the show that meant so much to me."

Breaking Bad ended its five-season run on AMC in September.

"I'm up here because of Vince Gilligan," Cranston said. "He's a genius."

Gilligan accepted the award for Best TV Drama and thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, AMC and Sony.

"I gotta say the best thing about this is it gives all the people up here and folks who worked on Breaking Bad one more chance to thank the fans of the show," Gilligan said. The creator and executive producer thanked the "early adopters" who watched Breaking Bad from the start. "Thank you for helping us get to here," he said.

"I think i speak for all the folks...when I say—actually, the best person to say it, I think would be Aaron Paul."

Paul took to the mic and said, "Yeah, bitch! Thank you!"
