Walter White may have had a rough year, but Breaking Bad had a great one. The AMC drama practically swept the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight with five wins, including Best Drama Series. The only series to pick up more statuettes this year was Sherlock: His Last Vow — and that’s only if you count the four Creative Arts Emmys it won earlier this month on top of the three it picked up during the telecast.
