'Breaking Bad' wins Emmy as best drama series

LOS ANGELES (AP) —

Nearly a year after wrapping up, the AMC drama "Breaking Bad" has another nice going-away present. It is the winner of the Emmy Award for best drama series.

It was the second straight win in the category for the dark tale of chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-kingpin Walter White, who was played by Bryan Cranston. The show also won the Golden Globe for best drama last winter.

The series finale aired nearly a year ago, on Sept. 29, 2013.

"Breaking Bad" was nominated for best drama in 2012, 2010 and 2009 before ending with the two-year winning streak.
