    Bradley Whitford won the Emmy, but did he really have the best tape?

    Whitford 100% deserved to win, though his co-star Richard Schiff or Michael Imperioli would have been very worthy as well.

    His Christmas episode that year is one of the best the series ever produced plus an incredible performance by him.

    For me, I am always torn between Whitford’s performance in “Noel” and Richard Schiff’s performance in “17 People”.

    Both are fantastic performances, but I’m glad Whitford got to win since Schiff had won the year before.

    ^ Which in itself was a great win, at least based on the strength of Schiff’s performance in “In Excelsius Deo”.

    he deserved it. I think he deserved a lot of Emmys for his work on that show.

    I think that Schiff should have won in 2005 with “Drought Conditions”, but he wasn’t even nominated. Actually, I think that Schiff and Whitford stopped submitting themselves after their third nominations. John Spencer, however, was nominated until 2005, when he was snubbed.

    I agree with the choice of Whitford because he had the best tape and best season of the supporting males on the show.

    That was an awesome episode for Whitford. The episode was really focused on his character and in one of the rare episodes where he really showed more of a serious performance, it was gripping.

    I just noticed that all of the Drama Supporting Actor winners in the Sorkin era of The West Wing won for episodes taking place during Christmastime. The 11th way to win an Emmy: Have a Christmas episode!

    I think it was a huge slam dunk win that tons of critics loved! Hard to find reviews from 2000! but here is a restatement of a USA Today review from 2003!

    If you need a reminder of what has been lost in Aaron Sorkin’s departure from The West Wing (Bravo, 11 p.m. ET/PT), check out this classic Christmastime repeat from the second season. Written by Sorkin, the story follows Josh (a triumphant performance by Bradley Whitford) as he unwillingly recounts the events that got him sent to a therapist (Adam Arkin).
