Here are my top 3…
3. Angela Lansbury, Murder, She Wrote
2. Lorraine Bracco, The Sopranos
1. Cybill Shepherd, Moonlighting
It’s Alexis Carrington Colby, not Corby.
In my opinion,
1. Angela Lansbury (Murder, She Wrote) – one of the Academy’s biggest mistakes was never giving her an Emmy
2. Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under)
3. Joan Collins (Dynasty)
Special Mention to Julianna Margulies for ER. Yes, she won Supp Actress, but she never took home a Lead Actress Emmy for the role, which grew in importance throughout her tenure
1. Frances Conroy
2. Elisabeth Moss
3. Cybill Shepherd
Bracco should have won in supporting I think her being in lead was one of the biggest EMMY crimes which may or may not have helped her co-star Falco win. In some episodes she only appeared once or twice how in the hell is that a lead character?
1. Cybill Shepherd
2. Frances Conroy
3. Elisabeth Moss
Debbie Allen and Kerry Washington.
Lorraine Bracco and Elisabeth Moss are amazing and both deserve Emmys, but Angela Lansbury is freaking iconic.
Conroy more than deserved it, but have to pick for Jessica Fletcher, cause it’s Angela Lansbury people!
Bracco is also amazing, but it is a supporting role.
