Aaron Paul's Emmys speech: The most surprised of the night?

The tears were visible as "Breaking Bad's" Aaron Paul took the stage to claim the Emmy award for outstanding supporting actor in a drama.

"Oh my God," he started, trying to compose himself. "I truly didn’t even attempt to prepare a speech - I can’t believe I’m standing on this stage."

He commended his "Breaking Bad" co-star Giancarlo Esposito and the other nominees in the outstanding supporting actor in a drama category, saying how honored he was to be nominated along with them.

He also gave a shout-out to "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan and the writers for not killing him off, and his parents for pushing him to get out of Idaho and pursue his dream.

"Last but certainly not least," Paul said he wanted to thank his "beautiful, inspiring fiancee," Lauren Parsekian. "Thank you so much for looking at me the way that you do, you truly saved me."

    Heard many good and positive reviews about "Breaking Bad". I wish I got a chance to see it from the start. I tried to watch a couple of episodes but I couldn't follow it, so I gave up.

      It's not a show you can drop into the middle of, but if you ever decide to go back and watch from the beginning you'll be rewarded. It's a fantastically crafted (if not at all uplifting) show.

      Yea, I really would love to see it from the start. Do they even have reruns on the show? They have reruns on everything else. This show was on for quite a number of years.
