The 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards are now less than a week away, and after last year’s somewhat confounding series of winners, anticipation is high to see how the final season of Breaking Bad stacks up against True Detective and if Veep can continue taking away heat from Modern Family. In anticipation of the broadcast, the Television Academy has put together a fun 6-minute promo with three of the best in the business: Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Cranston and Paul play a pair of sleazy pawn shop owners in the reality show parody, while Louis-Dreyfus attempts to sell off one of her Emmys. Unsurprisingly, the video is really funny and is a nice showcase of Cranston and Paul’s comedic chemistry, and it takes a rather unexpected turn towards the end.
Hit the jump to watch the “Barely Legal Pawn” video, and check back this weekend when Allison and I attempt to predict this year’s crop of winners. The 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards will be broadcast on NBC Monday, August 25th at 8pm ET.
