Breaking Bad Tops True Detective at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

  • HeyUGuys
Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.

As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).

The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed.

Emmys 2013 in photobombs: Aaron Paul, the guy behind Neil Patrick Harris and more

While the 2013 Emmy Awards were technically about honoring television, the show might as well have been about photobombs. There were many of those unexpected moments, and most were funnier than the show as a whole.

Check out some of the best, including Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad"), that side-stepping guy behind Neil Patrick Harris, Claire Danes, Bob Newhart and more.

First and foremost, of course, we have that man who side-stepped off-camera behind Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris. He has since been identified as Paul Greenberg, a comedian best-known for "Reno 911." Was this truly a mistake? Was it planned by the Emmys people? Or did Greenberg give us an impressive and real photobomb?

Hard to say. It is, however, rather funny.

One of the best photobombs of the night came during the E! red-carpet coverage. Claire Danes (who later that evening won an Emmy for "Homeland") popped up unexpectedly behind her friend,

Neil Patrick Harris' mystery Emmy side-stepper's identity revealed

One of the most hilarious and head-scratching moments of the 2013 Emmy Awards came when host Neil Patrick Harris was giving the TV audience a mid-commercial taste of what was coming up next on the show. While he was listing off reasons to keep watching, a man behind him awkwardly side-stepped out of frame.

Just what was that mysterious man doing there? Was he a member of the crew who found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time? Part of a pre-planned joke by Nph? A mysterious video-bomber? Or something else entirely?

While the circumstances around the man's appearance aren't immediately clear, his identity is: Paul Greenberg. The Emmy-winner is best known for his stint as D.A. Scott Greenberg on "Reno 911" and for being a writer for both the 2013 Emmys and the 2013 Tonys.

That means Greenberg and Harris probably have a bit of a rapport going right now,
