Emmys 2010: 'Breaking Bad's' Bryan Cranston is feeling 'gluttonous'

August 29, 2010 |  8:01 pm

The Emmy Awards is not just a parade for stars to show off overpriced couture frocks and sleek suits. It can also cause diabetes for the actors it awards?

Metaphorically, that is, according to Emmy king Bryan Cranston (though, judging from the sweets they provide backstage, onset diabetes is likely possible).

The “Breaking Bad” actor got his third statuette Sunday for his role as the cancer-stricken Walter White. And with him being ineligible for a chance next year — the AMC series doesn’t return until July 2011 — he’s enjoying the feast of Emmy gold while he can … even if it causes health problems.

“I'm so grateful. It's like having a great meal to do the show, and then to be awarded an Emmy is a beautiful flambé dessert, and then last year was another dessert on top of that. I feel gluttonous. And it's more than I can take in. It really is. I feel like I'm going to become a diabetic. So it's actually a reprieve that I can relax next year and let things go. It really is.”
