1. Breaking Bad Gets a Writing Nomination
When all is said and done, Breaking Bad will probably end up as one of the best TV series of all-time. A lot of that has to do with the fantastic writing that Vince Gilligan and company do on the show. Yet Breaking Bad has never received a writing nomination at the Emmys. It is time for that to change.
2. Jonathan Banks Gets a Nomination
Jonathan Banks has long been one of the more underrated actors in the Breaking Bad cast, but this year he brought his game to a whole new level with extra screentime. Banks may have actually delivered a performance that surpassed the great Bryan Cranston during season 5.
3. Corey Stoll Gets a Nomination
Just like Jonathan Banks, Corey Stoll stole his show from a much more acclaimed actor. In this case it was House of Cards and Kevin Spacey. Stoll had a breakout year and got a major role on one of the most anticipated TV shows in production, The Strain. All of that has to do with his spectacular performance as a doomed congressman.
