SAG Awards 2014: Bryan Cranston, 'Breaking Bad' cast win
Just like at the 2014 Golden Globes, both Bryan Cranston and the cast of "Breaking Bad" won at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday (Jan. 18). Cranston won for Best Male Actor in a Drama Series while the cast won Best Ensemble in a Drama Series.
When Cranston walked up to accept his award, he first checked himself out in a mirror from Anna Gunn's "Breaking Bad" clutch before singing, "I won a SAG AWAARRRRD!"
Cranston then went on to tell a story about how he got starstruck around Emma Thompson. "You know how things are strange? A week ago, I was at a banquet, and I saw out of the corner of my eye Emma Thompson coming over, fighting her way through tables and looking over here, and I'm like, 'Oh my god, that's Emma Thompson,'" Cranston says. "And she was looking my way, and she came up to me, and I lost it. I didn't know what to say. That's what happens when you're so lucky."
Cranston still can't believe how lucky he is to have been a part of the "Breaking Bad" cast. "I've had so many crappy jobs in my life. I loaded trucks downtown -- coal dust, dirt, everywhere. Every orifice. People yelling at you, 'Cranston! Move faster, work harder!'" Cranston says. "And the only thing that got me through was imagining, dreaming, that one day I could actually make a living as an actor, and that's what got me through, thank god. We are the luckiest people in the world, those who can say, 'I am an actor.'"
And Cranston couldn't end his speech without thanking all who helped him win the award. "Thank god to all my cast mates here, and Vince Gilligan, I owe you everything," Cranston says. "I love you honey."
That last comment was meant for his wife, not Gilligan. At least, we think so.
