Governor Bill Richardson Congratulates

"Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston receives third straight best actor nomination


SANTA FE-Governor Bill Richardson today offered his congratulations to those responsible for two made-in-New Mexico television productions that received a combined 13 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, which were announced this morning.  "Breaking Bad", the AMC series shot in Albuquerque, received 6 nominations while the made-for-television movie "Georgia O'Keeffe" garnered 7 nominations.  The Governor also praised actors Neil Patrick Harris and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, both from Albuquerque, for receiving nominations.


"I am proud that productions created with New Mexico's outstanding talent, experienced crew, and unparalleled locations continue to be recognized as among the industry's best," said Governor Bill Richardson.  "And as important as the quality of work is the fact that the industry means jobs for New Mexicans and revenue for the state."
