'Breaking Bad', Best Drama TV Golden Globes 2014

Popular AMC show "Breaking Bad" won the Golden Globe for Best Television Drama Sunday night (Jan. 12). It is the first Golden Globe win and nomination for the series, which ended its fifth and final season with a much lauded, much talked-about series finale Sept. 29.

The show starred Bryan Cranston as a high school chemistry teacher turned methamphetamine producer and Aaron Paul as his dealer; both Cranston and Paul were also nominated for Golden Globes this year. Cranston took home the award for Best Actor in a TV Drama.

"Breaking Bad" edged out other dramatic favorites for the win, including Downton Abbey," "The Good Wife," "Masters of Sex" and "House of Cards." Not nominated this year were previous Golden Globe darlings "Mad Men" and "Homeland."

Vince Gilligan accepted the award on behalf of the show, thanking his "amazing cast," before handing the microphone off to Aaron Paul, who responded in true Jesse Pinkman form: "Yeah, bitch! Thank you."
