Aaron Paul has revealed that he is thrilled he picked up an Emmy nomination.

Paul was shortlisted in the 'Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series' category for his role as Jesse in Breaking Bad.

"I'm so grateful," he told Zap2It. "First of all I just love that I'm working in this business, and secondly that I'm working on a show that I'm so unbelievably passionate about.

"And the people that watch it, they love it, you know? It's really dark, but people love the darkness."

Paul revealed that he has decided to submit 'Half Measure', the penultimate episode of Breaking Bad's third season, for consideration.

"You saw Jesse go through a bunch of different emotions," he explained. "He had just found out in the episode prior who organised his friend's death, forced a little kid to do it. So you first see Jesse trying to convince Walt [Bryan Cranston] to get a hold of ricin for him, because he wants to poison these guys. Then he's like, 'Fine, if you don't understand it, I can't convince you. I'm gonna do this on my own'.

"Then he tries to convince Wendy [Julia Minesci] to feed them hamburgers with this drug in it, and then he makes the decision to do it. He's just going to go out guns blazing. It's pretty intense."

Paul added that he doesn't know what will happen in the fourth season of Breaking Bad, saying: "I have no idea. I just want Jesse to continue to breathe."

The 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards will be held on August 29.
