If you're shocked that Matthew McConaughey didn't win the Best Actor Emmy for True Detective, you're not alone. "Even I thought about voting for Matthew," said Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston in his acceptance speech.
"I was a kid who always looked for the shortcut. A schemer. My own family nicknamed me Sneaky Pete. [...] I can only say that I have gratitude," said Cranston, thanking the Academy, AMC, the cast and crew of Breaking Bad, and his own family.
Cranston saved specific praise for his co-stars (and fellow award winners). "I love you so much. You were with me all the way and I appreciate it," he said to Aaron Paul. He turned to Anna Gunn, the "television extraordinaire" who played his on-screen wife. "I love you, and especially those scenes in bed."
Cranston ended his speech by encouraging viewers to follow their own dreams. "Take a chance, take a risk, find that passion, rekindle it all over again," he said. "It's really worth it."
