Take that, Skyler White haters!

Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn won her first Emmy Award in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category on Sunday night for her work as Walter's (Bryan Cranston) polarizing wife on the AMC hit series.

On her way up to the podium to accept her award, Gunn received a few words of advice from Cranston, who has won three Emmys for Breaking Bad: "Bryan Cranston just told me to breathe," Gunn revealed on stage. Hey, that's what onscreen husbands/meth dealers are for!

Gunn then went on to thank her "Breaking Bad family," including "mad genius" creator Vince Gilligan.

"To every cast- and crewmember, thank you so much for allowing me the joy and privilege for working beside you for all those incredible five seasons," Gunn said.

And though we were told that show producers wouldn't be using music to cut out winners if their speeches go too long, they did just that during Gunn's speech!

Gunn recently penned an op-ed forThe New York Times about fans' hatred for her character Skyler. "As an actress, I realize that viewers are entitled to have whatever feelings they want about the characters they watch," she wrote. " But as a human being, I'm concerned that so many people react to Skyler with such venom."

Breaking Bad's run comes to an end next Sunday and Gunn teased the series finale during her chat with E! News on the red carpet before the show. "The last two episodes are so mind-blowing," Gunn dished. "I think people will be frozen in their chairs staring at the TV after. It's apocalyptical."

Breaking Bad's series finale airs Sunday, Sept. 29 on AMC.
