(CBS NEWS) It was good to be “Breaking Bad” at the Primetime Emmy Awards, where it won the award for outstanding drama series.

The honor on Sunday was the first time “Breaking Bad” had won the award despite three previous nominations. The win came one week before AMC is due to air the series finale.

“I did not see this coming,” said series creator Vince Gilligan, tipping his hat to competitor “House of Cards,” the first online contender for top Emmy honors.
