Golden Globes: Bryan Cranston says nomination is like 'bumping into an old friend'

They say true friends can go weeks without seeing each other and, then, when they finally meet again, it's like no time has passed. Oh, to be Bryan Cranston and be able to claim such a friendship with award nominations.

When discussing his nomination for actor in a drama, Cranston was more than happy about catching up with his buddy, the Golden Globes.

"It’s like bumping into an old friend who you’ve passed on the street," he said. "It's like, 'Hey! Oh, my God, let’s dance.' I guess it's better and less sad than if you were standing on the street waiting and waiting for your old friend who you've lost touch with."

The nomination is Cranston's second for his role as Walter White, a chemistry teacher turned meth -maker, on "Breaking Bad" — he received a nomination in 2010 in the same category.

He did, though, express disappointment that the critically acclaimed AMC series wasn't recognized in the drama category.

"You become so partisan about the shows you do, you know," he said. "I wish it would have been recognized. But there's all kinds of things that you hope for. But you embrace the good, and we've had a lot of good."
