“It has changed my life and I am standing up here tonight because of one man, Vince Gilligan,” Paul continued, shouting out the show’s creator. “Thank you for believing in me and trusting in me to play this guy.”
Paul also paid tribute to his co-star and partner in on-screen crime, Bryan Cranston, who also took home the Emmy for Best Leading Actor on Monday night. “I’ve learned so much, onscreen and off.”
“Breaking Bad” star Anna Gunn also won the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress. Paul won Best Supporting Actor in a Drama for “Breaking Bad” previously in 2010 and 2012.
Paul since has transitioned to doing movie roles since “Breaking Bad” ended, though he hasn’t ruled out a return to reprise Pinkman in the prequel/spinoff series “Better Call Saul.”
