Cranston, Paul and Louis-Dreyfus combine in this hilarious video
Julia Louis-Dreyfus attempted to sell her Primetime Emmy Award to Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, who now work as owners of a seedy pawnshop called Barley Legal. You have no idea how much we want that whole sentence to be true, but it’s not.

It is, in fact, a spot sponsored by Audi of America for the Emmys. It sees Dreyfus try and drum up some quick cash to pay for a regrettable purchase. "I read somewhere that Celine Dion has her own island, and last night I had a little bit too much rosé, did some online shopping, so now I have to pay for my own island," she explains in the video.

Although it ended last September, 'Breaking Bad' is continuing to reign supreme when it comes to awards. The drama scooped the top prize at Sunday night’s Television Critics Association Awards, Program of the Year.

The series also scooped the prize for Best Mini-Series but lost out on the award for Best New Program of the Year, which instead went to Netflix exclusive prison dramedy ‘Orange is the New Black’.

The show is still coming, just not as soon as expected.
Better Call Saul, AMC’s upcoming Breaking Bad spinoff is yet to air a single episode, but has already been renewed for a second season. The new series, which will star Breaking Bad’s Bob Odenkirk and may or may not feature appearances from Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, has received an extra 13-episode order, bringing its total number of episodes to 23, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Filming is underway on the 10-episode first season in Albuquerque, N.M.
A look into TV's biggest moments on Twitter according to Nielsen. Are you surprised?
An awesome thing about television is that social media exists. You can watch people freak out over the latest death in a show and share your pain with others when the season is finally over. An awful thing about television is that social media exists. You can watch people freak out over the latest death in a show that you haven’t caught up on, spoiling it for you, and share your hatred with others when they just tweeted about the cliffhanger to a finale that you’re currently DVRing because you’re stuck at your girlfriend’s family party.
Clearly, I’m still bitter about that. Anyway, point is that, like it or not, Twitter has been monumental when it comes to television, and it’s hardly just an accessory. Would ‘Breaking Bad’ be as huge as it was without the constant word of mouth on Twitter? ‘Breaking Bad’ happens to be this television season’s most talked about show on the social networking site, as reported by Nielsen.

The Breaking Bad actor wins his first Tony Award
Is Bryan Cranston the most adaptable actor in Hollywood? Having goofed around with slapstick in 'Malcolm in The Middle,' struggled with the perils of right and wrong in 'Breaking Bad' and fought the system in 'Godzilla', the 58-year-old actor picked up a Tony Award for his portrayal of former President of The United States, Lyndon Johnson, in 'All the Way' on Saturday (June 7).

The accolade extends Cranston’s remarkable winning streak which has seen him pick up Emmys, Golden Globes and SAGs for his memorable turn as Walter White, the chemistry teacher-turned-drug empire lynchpin with an unquenchable appetite for power and a seemingly irresistible urge for revenge.
The 58 year-old actor has left many fans confused about the fate of meth kingpin Walter White. "Hey, you never saw bags zip up or anything," he speculated on whether or not his character died.
Bryan Cranston dropped a huge bombshell on 'Breaking Bad' fans on Thursday (May 29th).
The 58 year-old actor may have changed many fans' minds as to what actually happened at the end of the AMC hit series.
Cranston confessed that the fate of meth king pin Walter White, who he played, is very debatable.
Walter White survived? Bryan Cranston suggests Breaking Bad ending wasn't as clear as it seemed.
Bryan Cranston dropped meth lab sized bombshell on the whole Breaking Bad ending this week, by suggesting that Walter White may well not be dead. The drug kingpin appeared to run out of luck at the end of AMC's classic drama, though whilst promoting his new action flick Godzilla on Thursday (May 29, 2014), Cranston told CNN's Ashleigh Banfield that Heisenberg may have lived through those final moments.

In the concluding moments of Breaking Bad, cancer-sufferer Walter - bleeding from a gunshot - collapsed on the floor of a DIY meth lab as the police narrowed in on him. However, Cranston suggested the chemistry-teacher may have survived.

Chart-crushing blues rock and building-smashing monster movie antics: another week in news brings shocks and laughs.
Cannes Continues: We're nearly at the end of the second week of the Cannes Film Festival and have been mentally noting which new movies have soared or been scorched at the hands of critics. Map to the Stars, Two Days, One Night, Mommy and Foxcatcher have all received glowing reviews whilst Lost River, Grace of Monaco, and The Search... well, less so. Click on links for reviews highlights and details for each movie.
Carter-Knowles Camp Content?: The Jay Z/Solange brouhaha confusion still hasn't been publically illuminated but the Carter-Knowles family seems to be intent on proving to the world that everything is just fine, fine, fine, thank you very much after footage leaked showing the singer attacking her rapper brother-in-law in a lift. Beyoncé's statement did little to explain her sister's violence but her newly-posted family photos do a good job of sweeping it all under the rug, for better or worse.
Paul isn't alone in thinking that...
Aaron Paul played fan-favourite Jesse in Breaking Bad, the AMC sleeper hit that would become one of the most talked about shows of all time. During its run, the meth drama dominated the Internet, especially during season 5 when fandom and viewership reached an all time high.
Jesse Pinkman and Walter White suit up for another cook in AMC's 'Breaking Bad'
TV’s history is dominated by a few key moments, and not many are bigger than the introduction of the slow-burning, multi season American drama, exploring themes of loneliness, economic deprivation, crime corruption and, above all, family. The Sopranos paved the way, and, alongside shows like The Wire, Mad Men, The West Wing and Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad sits amidst that pantheon.

It was inevitable really: everybody loves a good monster.
Silence the doubters! Godzilla has smashed its way to the top of the box office, having earned a monstrous $93.2m on its first weekend. Gareth Edwards' gloomy new take on the popular Japanese tale of a radioactive monster put fellow opener Million Dollar Arm in the dark, leaving the Jon Hamm Disney sports drama a token $10.5 million.
'Godzilla' Stormed Its Way To Box Office No.1 This Weekend With A $93 Million Opening.
Meanwhile, the Zac Efron-starring comedy Neighbors was pushed down to second in its second week with nearly $26 million in takings - a figure far shy of Godzilla's monster haul - whilst the superhero action sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, clung on to the top three with a confident third week figure of $16.8 million.
Take a vote in the poll below!
Godzilla has barley finished trampling America’s box offices and the gargantuan daikaiju is still to wreak havoc over in China and Japan – a huge market, especially given the origins of the franchise. But Warner Bros. and Legendary are already thinking about what a sequel could do, and they obviously think it could do plenty as one is in the works.
Gareth Edwards’ effort, which sees Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanbe, Juliette Binoche and Bryan Cranston head a stellar cast, has already made $200m worldwide making it 2014’s biggest opener so far. Sure, ‘X-Men Days of Future Past’ and ‘Transformers: Extinction’ will likely ensure ‘Godzilla’ doesn’t finish the year with that mantle, but it’s an encouraging start for a film that was, for a while mentioned with apprehension.

The monster movie of the century? Box office stats point to "yes".
It isn’t a surprise that Godzilla is doing well at the box office, but the amount it’s earned over the weekend tops all initial estimates. With $93 million made over the three-day period, it’s safe to call this the first blockbuster of the summer season.
The critics weren't particularly impressed by Godzilla, but that din't stop it from having a killer opening weekend.

New Godzilla and X-men movies premiere in both America and Britain, just before the Cannes Film Festival opens with Grace of Monaco. Eastwood directs Cooper on set in Los Angeles. And The Rover, Snowpiercer, The Riot Club and Disney's live-action Cinderella drop new trailers...
The stars of both Godzilla and X-men: Days of Future Past turned out for a pair of big premieres over the past week. Godzilla, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston, had its world premiere in Los Angeles, while X-men: Days of Future Past, starring Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, bowed in New York. Then both casts travelled to London for European premieres a few days later. Check out our 'Godzilla' Premiere at Dolby Theatre - Arrivals photos, watch the video of Hugh Jackman sporting a bandaged nose At 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' World Premiere or watch the video of James Mcavoy and Patrick Stewart re-uniting at the 'X-men: Days Of Future Past' World Premiere.
But there was an even bigger film event this week in France, as the Cannes Film Festival kicked off with Nicole Kidman's new movie Grace of Monaco. The film received savage reviews from the critics, but Kidman brought real glamour to opening night. And the critics had far more praise for Mike Leigh's new film Mr. Turner, which stars Timothy Spall. Browse photos from the 67th Cannes Film Festival - Grace de Monaco - Photocall the 'Mr Turner' - Photocall or watch the trailer for Mike Leigh's Mr Turner.
For a blockbuster about gigantic radioactive monsters, this is a remarkably humane movie. But then that's no surprise for a film from Gareth Edwards, whose micro-budget Monsters (2010) showed that effects-based movies don't need to sacrifice characterisation and real emotion. So while this film is still a big action romp, it's also cleverly grounded by believable people.
It centres on Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), whose life was upended in 1999 by a nuclear accident in Japan that killed his scientist mother (Juliette Binoche) and turned his father into a conspiracy-theory nutcase. Now just as Ford returns from military service to his wife (Elizabeth Olsen) and young son, he's called back to Japan as his dad spots tremors similar to those 15 years earlier. And as three terrifying creatures rise out of the earth, Ford is drafted in to help protect humanity. Following the beasts via Hawaii and Las Vegas to an epic confrontation in his hometown San Francisco, Ford works with scientists (Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins) and military commanders (David Strathairn and Richard T. Jones), eventually realising that the big-daddy monster Godzilla might actually be trying to help.
One of the more interesting aspects of Max Borenstein's script is that it reveals fairly early on that humanity is responsible for all of this and also helpless to avert the coming cataclysm. And yet the military machine does what it can, firing pathetic bullets and mobilising nuclear warheads because that's all it knows how to do. This approach adds a moral complexity that plays out in the decisions the characters have to make along the way. Taylor-Johnson is fine as the bland but muscled everyman at the centre, but Cranston steals the film with a far more textured role. Watanabe proves to be a master at the distant stare, while everyone else just runs and/or yells like real people would.

Not a disaster of a disaster movie
Gareth Edwards’ ‘Godzilla’ was facing an uphill struggle from the day it was announced. The iconic Japanese tale has been tinkered with so many times, many fail to excavate the original themes Ishirō Honda's 1954 film did in making the daikaiju a piece of pop culture iconography.
Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson in 'Godzilla'
But with Cranston on board and some shiny new technology adding a modern sheen to the franchise, the critics have found something to love with the latest reboot. Edwards hasn’t created a classic, or even sculpted his own with borrowed tools, but he has manufactured a solid springtime blockbuster while navigating the tricky landscape that comes with a pre-established and firmly embedded lore.

Remember the 1998 remake of Godzilla? Yep, it was horrific.

The studio is banking on the film's international profits.
Hollywood’s latest effort at Godzilla – arguably the most recognisable monster in cinema history – hits US theaters in just six weeks on May 16. In the lead-up to the premiere, Warner Bros. are amping up their promo efforts with featurettes, a new trailer specifically for Asia (which gives a clear look at the other monster in the film – the “Muto” a mutated species of Kaiju, designed by human enjineers – and a bunch of media appearances by the cast and production team. Teaser trailers, TV spots and sneak peeks at Comic-Con, CinemaCon, SXSW and WonderCon, most recently, have generated a lot of great buzz for the completely revamped version of Godzilla.
With a $160 million projected budget, Warner Bros. are banking on Godzilla’s successful release. So far, the box office predictions look great – according to Variety, early insider estimates are placing Godzilla’s debut in the $60 million plus bracket, with some observers claiming that Gareth Edwards’ reboot could fetch upwards of $70 million on its debut.
Godzilla was the main draw for fans attending WonderCon in California this weekend. The Warner Bros. panel presented a sneak peak at the upcoming monster movie, including one of the first direct shots of Godzilla.
We've been catching mere glimpses of Godzilla in every version of the trailer going but titillated fans at the WonderCon were finally rewarded with an exclusive sneak peak at the movie ahead of its release.
Fans at WonderCon have finally seen Godzilla's face in a sneak preview of the upcoming movie.
Fans at the Warner Bros. presentation at the WonderCon festival held in Anaheim, CA this weekend were thrilled to finally see a complete Godzilla in an exclusive clip from the upcoming movie. The biggest thrill for hundreds of fans who had crammed together to witness this sneak peak was seeing Godzilla's face for the first time. MTV, whilst not the most descriptive of sources, claimed the famous reptile's face was "everything fans had hoped for: vaguely T-Rex-ish, definitely reptilian, and a whole lot of awesome."
Bryan Cranston advises you to tread lightly, Maddie.
Maddie probably wasn't going to go to the prom with Stefan Montana. But when the 17-year-old enlisted the help of Bryan Cranston, she really had no choice - unless she wanted to end up like Gus Fring and the others.

Joe Brody and his wife Sandra are working at a nuclear power plant when disaster strikes. The building collapses, forcing an immediate evacuation of employees due to a radiation leak - but when Sandra doesn't make it out, Joe decides to find out what caused the tragedy. When the government inform the media of a severe natural disaster, he is angered because he knows they are harbouring a dangerous secret. When a series of other calamities, such as a devastating tidal wave, hits New York City, it becomes almost impossible to hide the fact that there's a giant reptilian creature hellbent on destruction heading towards the city; a monster later dubbed Godzilla. The US military set out on a mission to save the world along with a surge of new recruits, but their chances of surviving at the hands of this merciless beast are looking horrifically minimal.

Bryan Cranston will write memoirs covering his years starring in the hit AMC series 'Breaking Bad', his publisher announced on Thursday (3rd April).
Bryan Cranston will pen his memoirs, particularly focussing on the years he starred in hit AMC drug drama, Breaking Bad. Cranston's publisher, Scribner, announced the news on Thursday (3rd April) and said the book would be released in Autumn 2015.
Bryan Cranston's memoirs will be published in Autumn 2015.
Cranston's role as Walter White may be the selling point for the memoirs as Breaking Bad was hugely popular and has already gone down in history as one of the most viewed and widely discussed series on television. However, the memoirs will not merely concern Cranston's role on the show but his life and career leading up to, as the publishers aptly put it, to "one of the greatest performances of our time."
Donna Dickens has presented evidence which she thinks implies 'Breaking Bad' was intended as a prequel to 'The Walking Dead'. What do you think?
As fan theories go this one has definitely got its convincing elements. Donna Dickens over at HitFix.com has come up with an extremely intricate (and well spotted) theory that has led her to believe AMC’s Breaking Bad was intended as a prequel to the network’s apocalyptic zombie series The Walking Dead. Dickens’ theory is built upon a series of remarkable ‘coincidences’ between the two series. So what evidence had she presented to back up her claims?
Did Blue Sky do this?
The first link between the two series is allegedly found in Season 2 of The Walking Dead. When T-Dog is taken down with a fever and needs antibiotics, Daryl produces his older brother Merle’s ‘medicinal’ supplies. At the bottom of the plastic bag containing the assortment of drugs is a blue crystal like substance. To the casual observer there’s nothing exciting to spot there, except Dickens has suggested that the blue crystals are in fact Blue Sky, the meth produced by Walt and Jesse in Breaking Bad. Perhaps the bag of drugs was just a left over prop from the show, or a nod to AMC’s recently concluded series?

Following a series of disastrous calamities in New York, the government are desperately trying to cover up the cause by insisting that major earthquakes and typhoons are to blame for the demolished city. However, it soon becomes clear to everyone that the damage was caused by a less than natural threat, as a colossal reptilian beast makes itself known to the world; a creature the media has dubbed 'Godzilla'. The US military set out to face the threat in the most dangerous mission of their lives as the origins of Godzilla become known. It is mankind's own destructive nature that has brought this menace to Earth, a fact that is concluded when evidence of Nuclear material is found amongst the wildlife of the Pacific. Can mankind save themselves and rectify their own mistakes? Or are they about to make things a helluva lot worse?
'Godzilla' is the epic re-boot of one of the most iconic sci-fi films ever released. Originally a 1954 Japanese film directed by Ishiro Honda, 'Godzilla' was later adapted into a 1998 motion picture by Roland Emmerich. The 2014 incarnation has been directed by Gareth Edwards ('Monsters', 'End Day') with a screenplay by Max Borenstein ('Seventh Son', 'Swordswallowers and Thin Men') and Dave Callaham ('The Expendables', 'Doom'). The film will hit theaters on May 16th 2014.

If anyone needed convincing that Aaron Paul is well and truly typecast as Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad, then one look at his press run for Need for Speed should do the trick: the actor has been talking about a possible return to the hit meth drama by starring in the prequel spin-off, Better Call Saul. But should he be going back to the franchise that made career what it is today?
Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston as Jesse and Walter White in Breaking Bad
Breaking Bad was and will forever be remembered as one of the finest shows ever to grace the small screen, but if Paul wants to shake off that Jesse tag ever, perhaps distancing himself from Better Call Saul would be a wiser move. What’s more is that spin-offs have a tendency to be – for want of a better word – rubbish.
'Godzilla' is back and this time he's more terrifying than ever.
Now that we’ve viewed the epic trailer for the ‘Godzilla’ reboot, we’re more excited than ever to see the legendary monster tear up our screens again. This new ‘Godzilla’ promises to be different than any of it’s previous big screen outings. We can’t wait for its release this May, but until then here’s everything you need to know about the new movie.

While the government go about trying to pass off a series of catastrophic events as natural disasters, the US military are forced to take to Manhattan to rescue New York's ravaged city from a gargantuan menace intent on destroying the world. It is soon discovered that mankind's own irresponsible desire for weaponry and destruction has brought the threat upon them, after evidence of Nuclear chemicals are found around the Pacific. It becomes clear that these radioactive materials have had a genetic impact on the local wildlife, so when an enormous, malformed, reptilian monster dubbed Godzilla takes to the city, armed forces scarcely have a chance at defending their people. Does the human race have the strength and intelligence to survive their biggest threat yet? Or will their past mistakes bring about the apocalypse?
The brand new re-boot of the world's most iconic monster film 'Godzilla' serves as the second Hollywood version since it was first adapted by Roland Emmerich in 1998 from the 1954 Japanese film directed by Ishiro Honda. 'Godzilla' 2014 has been directed by Gareth Edwards ('Monsters', 'End Day') and written by Max Borenstein ('Seventh Son', 'Swordswallowers and Thin Men') and Dave Callaham ('The Expendables', 'Doom'), with an expected release date of May 16th 2014.
The forthcoming reboot of the Japanese giant monster story 'Godzilla' offers a much darker depiction of how humanity copes with such a catastrophic threat.
The remake of the classic giant monster story 'Godzilla' is nearing its release, and to hype the anticipation, the film's first full-length trailer hits the internet, which instantly makes you forget the catastrophic 1998 movie.

An in-depth look at who could star in season 2 of HBO's intense crime drama 'True Detective'.
Nic Pizzolatto put the sincerity and quality of True Detective’s story over multiple seasons of the show, asserting that a strict 8-episode format would be condusive to a strong third act. And judging by the critical claim he’s received – his creation is being talked about in the same breath as The Wire – one is inclined to trust the man who risked everything to write the new HBO anthology series.
Woody Harrelson [L] and Matthew McConuaghey [R] as Hart and Cohle in 'True Detective'
“One of the reasons I wanted to do an anthology format is I like stories with endings. I like a good third act. And continuing serial dramas, they tend to have really good beginnings and really long middles and then sort of have to hustle to develop an ending. And I like the idea of telling a self-contained story,” explained Pizzolatto.

Big Mike's back, and we couldn't be happier
For those of you who thought you’d seen the last of Mike Ehrmantraut, his return for the Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul, will come as an exciting revelation. But there’s more to Jonathan Banks’ role reprisal.
Jonathan Banks is back for more Breaking Bad action
No doubt we'll see Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul pop up as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman at some point in the new spin off, and of course Bob Odenkirk will be playing Saul again. We get the feeling Banks is going to play a far more important role.
Another Breaking Bad actor has joined the cast of the spinoff Better Call Saul
The Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul will feature at least two familiar faces on its cast, as Jonathan Banks has been announced to join the production. On Breaking Bad, Banks played everyone’s favorite serial killer for hire, Mike Ehrmantraut and he is going to reprise the role in the Albuquerque-set prequel, The Hollywood Reporter confirms, based on statements from AMC and Sony reps.
Banks will reprise his role as killer-for-hire Mike Ehrmantraut.
Banks himself is yet to comment on the news. On the inevitable danger of sequel fatigue, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan had this to say back in October: "There's obviously a danger inherent in doing a spinoff, but I just love the character of Saul Goodman [Odenkirk] so much, and part of me doesn't want to say no to this world."
The 'Gravity' director took home the top honour at last night's Director's Guild of America Awards
Alfonso Cuaron with his shiny and impressive award
Alfonso Cuaron looks like a firm favourite to take home the Academy Award for Best Director when the Oscars roll around this March. The Gravity director was given the top gong at last night's (25 Jan.) Directors Guild Of America Awards, an honour than can only heighten his chances of taking home Hollywood's top prize in a few weeks.
In only seven instances in the DGA Awards' 66 year history has the Best Director Oscar gone to someone who has not won the top honour for directors, with the last instance of this happening coming last year when Ben Affleck won the award, but was not even nominated for the Best Director category at the Oscars for his work on Argo. According to Oddschecker.com, Cuaron is the odds on favourite to take home the Best Director gong in March's ceremony, with 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen his nearest competitor.
