Last fall as Vince Gilligan and AMC's Breaking Bad was wrapping up its final season, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released the lavish and oh-so-appropriate Breaking Bad Complete Series Blu-ray barrel set to the retail equivalent of a standing ovation. It quickly sold out to never be available other than the secondary market again in the neighborhood of $400, or so we thought.
Breaking Bad and its stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn attended the Emmy's as a team for the final time this past Sunday and walked away with all the big awards they were up for including Best Drama, Best Actor in a Drama, Best Supporting Actor in a Drama, and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama. The opportunity was ripe for Sony to take advantage of the renewed interest in Breaking Bad and that's precisely what they have done.

If the big banks were notoriously too big to fail, the TV awards process might finally have become too big to wrangle.
Granted, it’s now expected Emmy nominations and awards will yield gripes from fans and critics, lamenting programs and performers who were “snubbed,” along with the Television Academy’s historic blind spots toward areas like science fiction, fantasy — basically anything with aliens, zombies, vampires and dragons.
But even allowing for an element of hyperbole and ginned-up outrage, the cries about apples-and-oranges comparisons and category shopping seemed to crest this year. And when practically every major award chase can come with an asterisk, one has to wonder if we’ve moved beyond the customary Hollywood nips and tucks to the process, and require something more closely resembling an extreme makeover.
Host Seth Meyers took aim at the problem in his opening monologue, joking that the comedy field included shows »

Out of all the sweet couples at the Emmys on Monday, Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy might have been the cutest. During their time on the red carpet, the small-screen duo didn't stick to the typical posing routine. At one point, William got on the floor in front of the cameras to help Felicity with her heels. The highlight came when she joined him, kneeling down to share an adorable kiss. Later, they took a selfie together, and William got animated as Felicity flashed a smile. William and Felicity have had plenty of experience keeping the spark alive - they've been married since 1997! And even though William later lost the Emmy for outstanding lead actor to Bryan Cranston, he's clearly won with Felicity. Keep reading to see their adorable moments, and then check out all the glamorous stars on the Emmys red carpet. »

Call it rekindled showmance. At the Emmy Awards on Monday, big winners Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Bryan Cranston turned up the heat with a passionate (staged) kiss that reminded Seinfeld fans of his role on that show as her love interest, Tim Whatley. And although it's been years since then, it appears the two have still got it. On Tuesday, the Breaking Bad star posted a side-by-side Instagram photo of their '90s TV kiss with their Emmys smooch - and from the looks of it, the embraces are identically passionate. "I find this somewhat mind-blowing," wrote Cranston. Seems not much »

No one conducts an interview quite like Guillermo Rodriguez — and for good reason. The Jimmy Kimmel Live! go-to guy was backstage at Monday's Emmys, where he got Bryan Cranston to rub mustaches with him, Aaron Paul to kick off a night of drinking and Julianna Margulies to be grossed out by a shot of his special liquor. Stephen Colbert got in on the action, too, conducting part of his sit-down with Guillermo while embracing him in hug. Later in the show, Jimmy Kimmel got Idris Elba to partake in the Als Ice Bucket Challenge. Thankfully he remembered

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Tuesday night was Chelsea Handler's star-studded farewell for her E! show, "Chelsea Lately." There were tons of A-list superstars on hand -- including Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, 50 Cent, Fergie, Tim Gunn, Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette, Gwen Stefani, Gerard Butler, a dog, and more. The first video below shows Chelsea's A-list intervention, with friends Jennifer, Sandra, and Mary McCormack. In the second video, Chelsea has a hilarious naked shower fight with Ellen DeGeneres, who is mad because she's never been on Chelsea's show. Is it because she's a lesbian? In the third video, Gwen leads a sing-a-long throwing shade at E! (and the Kardashians, and Justin Bieber »

Luke Owen with his top five movies of the summer…
Celebrating 60 years of destruction, the King of the Monsters made his return to the big screen in this American reboot to the classic series. Godzilla saw Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as a husband and wife duo who are trying to reunite after The Big G shows up and starts tearing through cities chasing after alien-like creature M.U.T.O.
Director Gareth Edwards clearly loved the classic Godzilla movies from the character’s 50s and 60s heydays as the movie was a call back to those films. It had a slow, methodical pace and it focused on the human characters and their dramas while Godzilla fought in the background as the ever looming presence and metaphor for nuclear war. Sadly, the movie only takes our fifth spot here as the human element (including »

'Breaking Bad' had a huge night at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards last night (August 25, 2014) and 'Modern Family' did well, too. The critically acclaimed drama, which came to an end last year, celebrated its swansong with a slew of awards including the night's top prize, Outstanding Drama, and Outstanding Actor in a Drama for Bryan Cranston. Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn also earned Outstanding Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, respectively, for the show. 'Breaking Bad' creator Vince Gilligan said: ''Thank you so much for this wonderful farewell, you have been very kind to us indeed.'' 'Modern Family' was crowned Outstanding Comedy Series for a fifth consecutive year and actor Ty Burrell was lauded for his portrayal of Phil Dunphy with the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy award. 'Veep' star Julia Louis-Dreyfus and 'The Big Bang Theory' funnyman Jim Parsons »
Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman set tongues wagging earlier this month when he floated the possibility that original survivor Daryl Dixon could be gay, telling ComicBook.com, “It’s been discussed.”
Now, the AMC hit’s showrunner, Scott M. Gimple, is weighing in on the “Is-he-or-isn’t-he?” buzz.

“We know all sorts of things about the characters that we haven’t revealed,” he shares, before insisting, “[But] we’re not holding back information on Daryl’s sexuality as any sort of big reveal. The fact that there’s still a question as »
It's safe to say that the television academy is a fan of Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The 53-year-old stunner took home the Emmy for Best Actress in a Comedy Series last night for her portrayal of Selina Meyer on Veep, marking her fifth Emmy win and fifteenth nomination. Of course, the former Seinfeld star, who now holds the record for the most Emmy nods for any comedic actress on TV, managed to further steal the spotlight by sharing an epic smooch with Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, who took home the accolade for Best Actor in a Drama Series, before she went on to have a particularly saucy night with a very special someone. Namely, her Emmy »

"Breaking Bad" ended months ago, but last night at the 2014 Emmys, the cast had one last chance to get together and say goodbye to the show's many fans. Co-stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn all picked up acting trophies, while creator Vince Gilligan took home an Emmy for Best Drama. Backstage, they joined the show's other cast and crew members to answer a variety of questions from journalists. Watch the full video above. Paul talks the elaborate scavenger hunt he orchestrated for fans and his love of the word "bitch." Cranston recounts his experiences "disguised" as Walter White at Comic-Con last year and discusses the differences between comedy and drama. Then, he and Gilligan explore why "Breaking" has resonated so much with viewers. Gilligan says the Emmy win was a surprise. "I did not arrive here thinking we would win," he admits, giving a shot out to the other nominated shows. »

Despite all the pieces heralding this as a golden age of television, the Emmys — or more accurately, those who mounted and attended them — still haven’t gotten over their infatuation with movie stars, or retired their age-old inferiority complex. And while people are to be forgiven for ogling Matthew McConaughey, the cumulative weight of all the attention he garnered from the stage went from cute to unseemly, as if nobody could believe a recent Oscar winner would deign to attend their party.
Not only does this fly in the face of history — movie stars aren’t exactly a new feature of Emmy voting — but it does a general disservice to those who have rightfully garnered praise for their television work. Besides, Bryan Cranston just won a Tony for the play “All the Way;” should people be doing cartwheels that he found time to show up?
Yet there was McConaughey on the red carpet, »

After winning his fourth Emmy on Monday night, Bryan Cranston was given a special treat when friends decorated his La home with balloons and a homemade sign. The Breaking Bad star was spotted walking to his home on Tuesday and looking at the new decorations, which included a poster that read, "Congratulations Bryan! Love, the Porters." Bryan celebrate his big win in more-traditional ways, as well, including stopping by all the various Emmys afterparties, like the famed Governors Ball, where he joined up with his fellow costars (and winners!) Anna Gunn and Aaron Paul. In case you want to relive Bryan's Emmys experience, be sure to check out his heartwarming acceptance speech. »
There was a sense going into the Emmy Awards yesterday that it might be a chance to say “out with the old and in with the new”, so to speak. Essentially, last night was shaping up to be a big battle between old guard winners like Breaking Bad and Modern Family against young bucks like Orange is the New Black and True Detective. I don’t watch enough television to have done official predictions, but I certainly had a rooting interest in seeing some of the top notch new shows take home prizes. Well, last night proved that the Emmy voters like what they like, as old favorite beat back new contenders fairly consistently. I’ll post all of the winners at the end of this piece, but I wanted to focus in on a few of the categories in particular. Mainly the versions of Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Actress for this show. »

Breaking Bad drove out of the Emmys and into the night with plenty of trophies in tow: The critically adored drug drama won five awards for the second half of its fifth and final season, including acting statues for Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and Anna Gunn, as well as the Outstanding Drama Series Emmy for the second year in a row. “It’s an embarrassment of riches, being involved in something as special as Breaking Bad,” says Paul, who claimed his third Supporting Actor trophy for his portrayal of Jesse Pinkman, Walter White’s soul-gutted meth-making partner-turned-adversary. “This is probably »

Hosting a major awards show is a thankless task. Just ask David Letterman and Seth MacFarlane. (Don’t even bother asking James Franco.) Seth Meyers, who won almost unanimous praise for hosting the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in 2011, received mixed reviews in his first stint as Emmy host Monday night, with his hometown tabloid detractors pointing to a perception of passiveness that yielded the stage to other, more dynamic performers. But perhaps he should be commended for sharing the spotlight so generously, letting others shine, and keeping the three-hour show moving. Nothing wrong with getting by with a little help from one’s friends, »
