Sunday's episode of Breaking Bad even had the author of the books behind HBO's Game of Thrones George R.R. Martin cooing, and he says Game of Thrones will never beat it at the Emmys. Martin took to his blog to explain that while he thinks his show may have a shot at winning an Emmy this year at the ceremony Sunday, the prize is Breaking Bad's next year when the final episodes will be up for consideration.
He wrote: "I think GAME OF THRONES may have a shot at upsetting BB for this year's Emmy (only a shot, though, I think they are the clear favorite), which pits us against their previous season... but there's no way in hell that anyone is going to defeat BREAKING BAD next year, when their last season is the one in contention." Actually technically GOT is up against the first half of the final season of Breaking Bad this year, but we get your point, George.
Meanwhile the man who gave us Joffrey Baratheon, thinks there's just no one in his universe as bad as Walter White. "Walter White is a bigger monster than anyone in Westeros," he wrote.
