TV Movies A-Listers Young Hollywood Sign up with kmckay 6 years never heard of this guy or his show... which is really weird for me seeing as though i'm kinda a tv junkie :) supertramp 6 years As much as I would have love to see Jon Hamm or Hugh Laurie take this one, I was secretly was rooting for Bryan Cranston. It was so secretive I didn't know, I mean I would have been happy if he won and okay if he didn't, but when he did I like screamed and giggled. That's how much I love this show, its so good and it doesn't get enough attention. Allyace 6 years The answer to this question is always Hugh Laurie should have won :-P. With MC Hall as a close second! wren074 6 years Again, I disagree with the results. Michael C. Hall, Hugh Laurie and Gabriel Byrne are all phenomenal. I would have been thrilled to see one of those three win. ilanac13 6 years i'm kind of undecided on this one. i don't know if i really have a favorite in this category this year - oh well. i think that it's nice that someone we're not AS familiar with one - although it would have been great for the Dexter crew to pick up something. Bisque 6 years I was rooting for Hugh Laurie, I really thought House would have it. mariellynelly 6 years Breaking Bad isn't really my style, I've sat down and seen a few episodes, BUT Bryan Cranston is amazing in it. So i agree. silverz227 6 years This whole thing makes me sad. Bryan Cranston was amazing in Breaking Bad. Do I think that Michael C. Hall, Jon Hamm, and Hugh Laurie were amazing also? Yes. I could go on and on about my love for these shows (and how Hugh Laurie should have earned an Emmy by now after four seasons, and how Michael C. Hall is incredible at making you root for a serial killer, and Jon Hamm.. my god Jon Hamm makes Mad Men.) But I am happy that Bryan Cranston won. He deserved it. And his speech was so sweet. paperdoll1 6 years yeah i voted for him on the poll! he so deserved this award, he's amazing in "Breaking Bad". I know everybody loves Mad Men and seem disapointed but i really encourage you to take a look at the first episode (at least) of Breaking Bad and then i'm sure you'll understand why he won.. gemini7827 6 years Jon Hamm is so fantastic in Mad Men. Love that show! And was cheering for him to win; but I hear that Breaking Bad is great show and Bryan is really good. suec 6 years This guy deserved this win, his role in Breaking bad is top notch. The show is fresh, exciting, unique and completely addictive. His acting blows me away in this show!!!!!!!!!! em1282 6 years LOL, Buzz, I totally did! I scared the dog with my whoop...and I scared her earlier with my whoop for Colbert!! uptown_girl 6 years I've never seen his show, so I can't say... But I was really rooting for Jon Hamm, as I LOOOOOVE Mad Men! hausfrau 6 years Jon Hamm totally should have won, but Im glad they won best drama and seeing this season, they will be a shoe in next year! Linda-McP 6 years Hugh Laurie was my pick. Really disappointed that he didn't win.

He is an amazing actor and never gets the recognition he deserves.
