Aaron Paul calls his Emmy nomination 'amazing' and 'phenomenal' (Video)
Aaron Paul received quite a surprise yesterday when announcing the nominees for the 65th annual Emmy Awards.
The 33-year-old actor found out that he is once again nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series for his role as Jesse Pinkman on "Breaking Bad."
Paul took home the Emmy in the same category last year when he beat out co-star Giancarlo Esposito, Jared Harris of AMC's "Mad Men," Brendan Coyle and Jim Carter of PBS' "Downton Abbey and Peter Dinklage of HBO's "Game of Thrones."
The actor talked to George Pennacchio of KABC Television, OTRC.com's parent company, about his nomination and the show picking up a total of 13 nominations including Outstanding Drama Series.
"It's so bizarre. Always. Still. It's amazing. It's phenomenal," he said of his nomination. "It's great.
When asked how he felt about his co-stars and the show getting nominated, Paul replied, "It's just phenomenal. We're a family and we had the best time working on the show and it's just incredible that people are loving the show and loving the work that we do on the show."
"It's a blessing and we're lucky to be working in this business and be invited to these parties," he added. "I couldn't be happier for my fellow castmates."
The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards will air live on CBS on September 22 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. It was announced in May that "How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris will host the award show for the second time. The 39-year-old actor previously hosted the Emmys in 2009.
