Both were thought by many to be naturals for wins, with “Breaking Bad” heading for its Sept 29 series finale
Sorry, “Breaking Bad” top actors; as Aaron Paul’s character Jesse Pinkman might say, “No Emmys for you, bitch.”
Though the show’s Anna Gunn won Supporting Actress, both Bryan Cranston and Paul suffered upsets at the Emmy Awards on Sunday. Jeff Daniels won best actor in a drama series for his role in “The Newsroom,” and Bobby Cannavale won in the best supporting actor for his portrayal of gangster Gyp Rosetti on the HBO series “Boardwalk Empire.”

Cranston and Paul were thought by many to be naturals for the win, with “Breaking Bad” heading for its Sept 29 series finale — and especially after the Gunn win.
“Breaking Bad” star Jonathan Banks was also nominated in the supporting actor category.
Cranston and Paul shouldn’t feel too bad, however. Both have won previously, Cranston in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and Paul in 2010 and 2012.
