Has Rhea been overlooked too then? Lol, this awards institution sounds like a bit of a joke.

Yes, I don't think she's ever received an Emmy nomination for BCS.

Went to see Vince Gilligan today in Melbourne and he was fantastic! Told a few stories that were probably known to fans (like how the series originated and how Gilligan knew Cranston through the X-Files) but he was an excellent speaker. Keeps your attention with funny anecdotes and great insight into the creative process.

 

Didn't realise there would be a Q&A at the end; I couldn't think of a question to ask on the spot! Bummer!

 

Interestingly, when asked about how long he envisages Better Call Saul running, he specifically mentioned the 62 episodes of Breaking Bad and said BCS 'will end up in the same ballpark when all is said and done'. With 10 episode seasons, I got the impression that means they're aiming for 6 seasons!

3 more feels too long, unless they have something interesting in mind. Like if the final parts of the show will take place after BB.

I envisaged 5 seasons being plenty but they are shorter seasons than Breaking Bad. I could see the last few episodes of the series focusing on future-Jimmy going through some kind of crisis and returning to ABQ. Seems like they have something big in mind.

 

Gilligan amusingly joked that they didn't intend BCS to become another "good guy turns bad" series, lest they start looking like one-trick ponies.

Cool report, Crumbs!

Any other interesting facts or stories shared?

Vince Gilligan spent a significant portion of his childhood growing up in my hometown, so I've always been glad to see his success.  He even sometimes includes easter egg references to our little corner of Virginia in his shows.  Little throwaway things like scribbled down addresses or whatever.

He's still got that central Virginia accent!  I love hearing it in his interviews.

 

And David Fincher's longtime editor grew up here too!  His cousin was my high school girlfriend.  Our only connections to the film industry.
