Newly of age Breaking Bad actor RJ Mitte is ready to live it up.
Mitte, whose AMC series just won best drama at the Emmys on Sunday, began celebrating a little early.
Popping into the HBO Luxury Lounge in Beverly Hills on Friday with his mom, Mitte sipped on Baileys Irish Cream and was heard by an onlooker saying jokingly, "Now that I'm 21, I want shots of Baileys all day long."
Even though Mitte is the famous one, his mom didn't walk away without some VIP treatment of her own. Her son scooped up a fancy pair of earrings from Pandora jewelry for her.
Congratulations to all the Emmy nominees! We are on our way....... pic.twitter.com/rIqSAWXFvg— RJ Mitte (@RjMitte) September 22, 2013

There may be one more episode left of Breaking Bad, but Anna Gunn appears to have already put Skyler White behind her.
Wearing a floor-length Romona Keveza gown, Gunn, 45, showed off a very different look when she took home the Emmy for best supporting actress on Sunday for her portrayal of a teacher-turned-meth-kingpin's wife on the AMC series.
"I was actually ill while I was filming the show and it affected my weight," Gunn told PEOPLE at the Governors Ball after the awards ceremony. "They gave me cortisone and I puffed up and gained weight. Now I'm better, thank God."

How surprised was Jeff Daniels to win his first Emmy?
"I heard my name, and I go, 'Oh, that's what it sounds like when you win,' " Daniels, who won for his lead role as the self-righteous anchor Will McAvoy on The Newsroom, told reporters at HBO's afterparty on the Plaza of the Pacific Design Center, Sunday. "You hear your name just like that. 'Well, I won!' "
Going into the ceremony, the favorite appeared to be Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston, who had won for the past three years. When Daniels's name was announced instead, reported The New York Times, "There were audible gasps of 'Whoa!' and 'What?' in the auditorium."

Late into the 65th annual Emmys ceremony Sunday on CBS, host Neil Patrick Harris announced: "No one in America is winning their Emmy office pool."
If you did happen to win, you should consider a career in statistical forecasting. The awards were all over the place.
Of the night's many surprises, the biggest was in the category of best actor. Academy voters for once decided not to give the prize to Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston – but instead of rewarding Mad Men's Jon Hamm, the perennial also-ran, they chose Jeff Daniels of HBO's The Newsroom. Perhaps they concluded that Hamm is already lousy with nominations, and handsome as the devil, and that should hold him. Daniels is a fine actor, as you'll discover if you catch just about any of his many performances of the past three decades, but The Newsroom's first season was a pounding surf of angry, righteous yammering. Oh well.
Here's what else the Emmys got right and wrong:

There are a lot of reasons to love Aaron Paul: he's the charismatic star of Breaking Bad; he likes to reward his fans; he's adorable. But as if the actor didn't already have us firmly in his corner, Paul rocked the red carpet at the 2013 Emmy Awards, and showed even the seasoned veterans how it's done.

If there's one thing we all learned this week, it's that pretty much everyone is freaking out about the ending of Breaking Bad.
In fact, #BreakingBad was a trending topic on Twitter for several days following Sunday night's mind-blowing (get it?) episode. Even Dean Norris (Hank) had something to say – via a FunnyOrDie video (Spoiler, obviously).
And while people were live-Tweeting their reactions to the shocking show, BatDad was dispensing valuable advice, the '80s came back, and more random stuff happened online. Check it out:

Talk about a right number.
Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul surprised his fans Sunday by calling the first 10 to respond to a Tweet asking for their phone numbers.
"Happy Breaking Bad day b––s!" Paul Tweeted. "What's your number? Calling the first 10 people to answer questions. Ask me anything."
Fans quickly responded to Paul's request, and the actor – who was recently nominated for an Emmy for his role as Jesse Pinkman in the series – made good on his promise.

Ailing California teen Kevin Cordasco shushed anyone who dared to speak whenever he watched his beloved Breaking Bad from his hospital bed.
And on Sunday night, his family is convinced, he was watching the long-awaited final season's opener in his own way, from somewhere, and acknowledged the nod to their astute young superfan.
The critically acclaimed AMC series dedicated Sunday's episode to Cordasco, who, at age 16, died in March after a seven-year battle with neuroblastoma, a form of cancer.
