Bob Odenkirk is a phenomenal actor and has done a number of roles throughout his career, but his career reached new heights when he portrayed the role of Saul Goodman where he helped Walter White, portrayed by Bryan Cranston, to build his meth empire. Odenkirk was featured for only 43 episodes in Breaking Bad, which was enough for him to win the hearts of the fans and earn him a spin-off show of his own!

Odenkirk portrayed the character so perfectly that he became synonymous with the character, and it is next to impossible to think that some other actor would have played the role as good as him. However, despite doing a great job in the TV Series, Better Call Saul, the show never won an Emmys, to add insult to the injury the show was nominated 53 times over the years, and even in 2023 it was nominated but lost yet again.

As a result, an old interview of Bod Odenkirk surfaced with ShowBiz Express, where the interviewer asked him if he is feeling “fear, excitement, all of the above, what a lot of butterflies?” The Nebraska actor replied,

“Not even one. Yeah, I’ve been to this a lot, sorry. It’s fun to come but it’s not a big deal. I’m proud that the shows up at the top, I love all the people involved.”

Nevertheless, Better Call Saul does not need an Emmy to prove its worth, as fans believe that Odenkirk’s performance in the show was memorable, leaving an everlasting impact in their minds.
