Gaining even more recognition for his successful series, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul accepted “Breaking Bad’s” award for Program of the Year over the weekend.

During the TCA Awards, the “Malcom in the Middle” actor told the TV Critics Association that “It’s a little sad saying goodbye.”

Cranston joked that the show “Could still come back next year if you give us the ‘best newly departed show’ award.”

In addition to “Breaking Bad,” CBS’s “The Good Wife” won best drama, while there was a tie between HBO’s “Veep” and FX’s “Louie” for best comedy.

Matthew McConaughey was recognized for his acting chops in HBO’s dramatic series “True Detective,” while Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home the best actress in a comedy award for “Veep.”

“True Detective” also nabbed an award as best movie or miniseries, while Netflix’s original series “Orange is the New Black” won a prize for best new show.
