I just rewatched the submissions from Desperate Housewives for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Marcia Cross, Terri Hatcher and Felicity Huffman. I also recently watched the Finale of Everybody Loves Raymond and I did Jane Kaczmarek’s submission.
I still do not understand how Felicity Huffman won this category. Even if you apply the theory of looking at her performances from her co-stars tapes, I still do not understand how she won the Emmy.
Below are the submissions:
Marcia Cross – Running To Stand Still – Desperate Housewives
Terri Hatcher – Move On – Desperate Housewives
Patricia Heaton – Finale – Everybody Loves Raymond
Felicity Huffman – Pilot – Everybody Loves Raymond
Jane Kaczmarek – Lois Battles Jamie – Malcolm In The Middle
Did Marcia Cross lose because of the nature of her tape which was discussing sex and showing up at the hotel in a fur with bra and panties underneath? I thought that Marcia Cross had the best submission and should have won. I also thought that she shined in Terri and Felicity’s submissions as well.
I know that some may think that this belongs in the Poll Forum, but I wanted to put this in the Emmy Forum to get more visibility and discussion.
Felicity Huffman won because she was perfect in the “Pilot”. She should’ve won for the episode called “Bang” too.
There wasn’t a very clear winner in this group that had overwhelming hype and/or an AMAZING tape. When that doesn’t occur so many things can happen. This is a large group of people voting and they are ranking them. I can see Terri Hatcher and Marcia Cross being very polarizing. Huffman could have won this category with just having enough number 2 and 3 votes.
