Breaking Bad stars Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn and Bryan Cranston celebrate their wins -- Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series respectively -- at the Emmys.

The show, about a cancer-stricken teacher-turned-drug kingpin, won Outstanding Drama Series nod too.

"Thank you so much for this farewell to our show. You have been very kind to us indeed," said creator Vince Gilligan.

Cranston joked that even he thought about voting for True Detective star, and recent Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey.

"I don't know why I've been blessed. I love to act and I will do it to my last breath.

"I'd like to dedicate this word to all the Sneaky Petes (his childhood nickname) of the world who thought that settling for mediocrity was a good idea because it was safe. Don't do it -- take a chance, find a passion, fall in love," Cranston said.
