Comic-Con, Emmy Noms Made for a Good Day for “Breaking Bad” Creator
(SAN DIEGO) -- Thursday was a pretty good day for Vince Gilligan. The show he created, Breaking Bad, was nominated for six Emmys on the same day the show on which he got his start, The X-Files, was honored with a star-studded panel attended by thousands at Comic-Con in San Diego.
At the convention, he spoke to ABC News Radio about his very eventful Thursday. "It makes you wish every day would be like this," Gilligan allowed. "But then you think, 'Well I'd get spoiled very very quickly.'"
This down-to-earth outlook -- and more than a little nerves, to boot -- led Gilligan to follow his own tradition and avoid doing what many in Hollywood did early Thursday morning: watch the Emmy nominations announcement. "I typically don't [watch] because I get very nervous, because I very much want to be nominated," he explained. "I don't know who doesn't, I think we all do, if we're being honest."
The final season of Breaking Bad kicks off August 11 on AMC.
