'Breaking Bad' wins program of the year at TCA Awards

On Saturday, the 30th annual TCA Awards named Breaking Bad program of the year for the second year in a row. However, Bad did not face off against True Detective—its biggest rival in the upcoming Emmy race—which instead took home the award for outstanding miniseries. Matthew McConaughey was also honored for his work in True Detective.

Netflix hit Orange is the New Black won for best new program, and the Emmy-snubbed The Good Wife was named top drama.

In the comedy category, Veep tied with Louie for best comedy, while Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus was also honored.

Other winners included Saturday Night Live, which snagged the Television Critics Association’s Heritage Award, Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey, which won for news and information, and RuPaul’s Drag Race, which was honored in reality programming.

Finally, ABC Family’s The Fosters won for youth programming, and James Burrows took home the Career Achievement Award.

All in all, HBO came out on top with the most awards of any network.

Vince Gilligan on the 'Breaking Bad' finale, the abandoned 'Wild Bunch' bloodbath ending, and the all-time best finale

All Bad things must come to an end, read the tagline for the final season of Breaking Bad. And when the revered drug drama came barreling to a finish last September, creator Vince Gilligan, his writers, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and the rest of the cast sent off Walt in a machine-gun blaze of tragic glory — and it was good. And that’s no easy task. For EW’s “The Art of Saying Goodbye” story, which ran in the April 11 issue, we interviewed the masterminds behind 10 iconic series, who discussed the formidable challenges of concocting the perfect farewell episode. Here, in a bonus Q&A, Gilligan — who wrote and directed the send-off, titled “Felina” — dishes on the process of crafting the last installment of the critically adored drug drama, provocative ideas for the endings that were abandoned, how the spin-off Better Call Saul factored into the plans, and his all-time favorite TV finale.

Spanish 'Breaking Bad' remake 'Metastasis' vs. the original: What's new? PHOTOS

The bad news is you’re suffering from Breaking Bad withdrawal. The good news? Fans of the hit AMC show — which wrapped up its five-season run in a gripping finale last fall — can look forward to an upcoming Spanish language remake that has plenty in common with Vince Gilligan’s Emmy-winning drama.

Or will it? Sure, true to the original, Walter Blanco — his last name means “white” – is a timid chemistry teacher who transforms into a meth-dealing mastermind after he’s diagnosed with lung cancer. But there are also a few notable differences too, which make Metástasis a blend of high-stakes telenovela drama and American cable TV storytelling. (Never fear: Gilligan consulted on the Colombian remake.) Here are a few of the most striking differences — with the promise of a lot more to come when the show premieres in July in the United States on Univision-owned network UniMás.

'Better Call Saul': Jonathan Banks joins 'Breaking Bad' spin-off

One of the big questions surrounding Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul has been: Will any characters from the original show be seen conspiring with shady criminal lawyer Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk)? The answer: You can Banks on it.

Jonathan Banks — a.k.a. lethal, world-weary fixer Mike Ehrmantraut on AMC’s acclaimed drug drama — has signed on as a series regular, the network confirmed today. (Deadline first reported the news.) The one-hour prequel, which is being overlorded by BB creator Vince Gilligan and co-executive producer Peter Gould, will focus on Goodman’s legal wheeling and dealings before crossing paths with chemistry teacher-turned-crystal meth king Walter White (Bryan Cranston). The casting of Banks makes sense: In addition to serving as the head of security for drug and chicken lord Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), and later partnering up with Walter and Jesse (Aaron Paul), Mike worked as a PI/cleaner in association with Saul. Banks joined Breaking Bad at the end of season 2 and received an Emmy nomination in season 5 for his role, which ended when [SPOILER ALERT] Mike was murdered by Walt. READ FULL STORY
