The Emmy Nominations 2013 are here and no one’s more pumped than “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul.
Aaron, along with Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris, took the stage bright and early this morning to announce this year's contenders.
“Yeah, it’s crazy, it’s wild, 13 nominations!” Aaron told Hollyscoop at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards announcements. “It’s so great, people are loving ‘Breaking Bad.’”
Aaron previously won the Emmy twice for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series” for his complex portrayal of Jesse Pinkman in both 2010 and 2012.
The awards nods only add fuel to the buzz surrounding the final season of “Breaking Bad”—not that it needed it—and Aaron teased expectations for the series finale.
“Eight more hours to tell the rest of the story, it’s a violent sprint to the finish line,” Aaron said. “It won’t allow our fans to breathe whatsoever. Past seasons have some buffer episode to let fans come back down, but none of that happens—just a violent sprint.”
The Emmys will air September 22 on CBS.
