'Better Call Saul' Season 6: Bob Odenkirk feels 'extra special' about sharing Emmy nod with Rhea Seehorn
‘Better Call Saul’ has been one of the finest shows in recent history and keeps on getting better with each passing episode. Since 2015, the series has been enthralling fans with engaging storylines and beautifully crafted characters. Over the years, the show has received several accolades and turned out to be a bigger (possibly) show than ‘Breaking Bad’. This year, the AMC series has received four nominations at the Primetime Emmys, including the Outstanding Drama Series. The show’s lead star Bob Odenkirk has also been nominated for Best Actor in a Drama Series accolade for his impeccable acting.
The acclaimed star opened up about his Emmy nomination and discussed how special he feels after garnering his fifth acting nod for the AMC show. Since 2015, the actor has been nominated four times for the Best Actor award, but unfortunately, could never get his hands on the coveted trophy. In a recent interview, Odenkirk noted that the nomination is “special” to him because his co-star and on-screen wife Rhea Seehorn has also garnered her first-ever Emmy nomination.

The ‘Nebraska’ star revealed that it’s “great” to share this nomination with her and he wouldn’t have felt good about getting nominated if Seehorn wasn’t included in the nominations. “This is extra special for me. Because it’s our final [season], because Rhea got nominated. Earlier, I had big scenes with Michael McKean and those are my sort of core scenes, and now it’s been Rhea and you don’t feel good about getting nominated if your scene partner is not… it’s really great to share this with her,” Odenkirk told The Hollywood Reporter.
Odenkirk will be facing stiff competition from other talented actors in the category and will be going up against the likes of Jason Bateman (‘Ozark’), Brian Cox (‘Succession’), Lee Jung-jae (‘Squid Game’), and Jeremy Strong (‘Succession’).
Meanwhile, first-time nominee Rhea Seehorn will be battling for the top accolade against actresses such as Patricia Arquette (‘Severance’), Julia Garner (‘Ozark’), Jung Ho-yeon (‘Squid Game’), Christina Ricci (‘Yellowjackets’), J Smith-Cameron (‘Succession’), Sarah Snook (‘Succession), and Sydney Sweeney (‘Euphoria’).
Both Odenkirk and Seehorn, have been giving extraordinary performances on the show and Season 6 shows them in full force once again. The AMC series stunned everyone with the latest episode and killed one of the most important characters on the show. The episode sees Lalo Salamanca finally meeting Gus Fring and records Fring and the meth lab. But Fring, who is always ready for any and every emergency has a handgun hidden in the still-under-construction lab.
Gus shoots Lalo in the neck and in the most shocking turn of events, Lalo dies and the menacing character leaves the world with a diabolical smile on his face.

Although we know that Lalo had to die in the upcoming episodes because he has never been a part of the ‘Breaking Bad’ universe. But killing him so early in the series has stunned everyone, but ‘Better Call Saul’ is known for doing the unthinkable, and Lalo’s death is undoubtedly one of the biggest moments in the show’s history.
Let’s see what lies ahead for Saul Goodman and Kim Wexler. As of now, they should be celebrating their Emmy nominations.
'Better Call Saul' Season 6 returns to AMC with a new episode every Monday at 9 pm EST.
