Breaking Bad, along with 30 Rock, The Big Bang Theory, and Modern Family received three Screen Actors Guild Award nominations on Wednesday.

According to Yahoo News, Breaking Bad will face off with Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, and Homeland for the drama ensemble award.

Bryan Cranston, who plays Walter White in the now-completed AMC series, is up for a repeat in drama actor against Boardwalk Empire's Steve Buscemi, The Newroom's Jeff Daniels, Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage, and House of Cards' Kevin Spacey.

At this year's Emmy Awards, Daniel's picked up a surprise win over Cranston.

Having won in the supporting category at the Emmy's, Breaking Bad's Anna Gun is now up against Claire Danes (Homeland), Jessica Lange (American Horror Story: Coven), Maggie Smith (Downton Abbey), and Kerry Washington (Scandal) in the drama actress race.
