Nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Saul Goodman, he lost out to Korean actor Lee Jung-jae from Netflix’s surprise hit Squid Game. The army of memes soon followed after the snubbing, and frankly Odenkirk deserves a little bit more respect on his name, as many fans pointed out.
One dedicated Odenkirk fan decided to spend the rest of their evening shitposting about the snub, with a near endless stream of delightful memes to commemorate the actor’s performance in the series. Odenkirk, please slide into their DMs and let everything know it’s… all good, man.
A throwback meme amidst it as well, as the user parodied the famous Oscars moment between La la Land and Moonlight which was the most memorable thing to happen at an awards show until, well, Chris Rock.
Speaking of classic awards show moments, the inevitable Kanye West and Taylor Swift meme came up very quickly.
The actor himself was gracious in defeat, putting a tweet out of him with his partner enjoying the ceremony and praising all those he has worked with over the last eight years of production on Better Call Saul.
Odenkirk won’t have another chance to win an Emmy for the role, with the series having just wrapped up. Fans can continue to rewatch Odenkirk and all of Better Call Saul and parent show Breaking Bad on AMC and Paramount Plus.
