    What are some scenes that clinched Emmy awards for actors and actresses in the Lead, Supporting and Guest categories in all three genres?

    Most recently, the moment I saw Selina give her eulogy in “Mother,” I knew Julia Louis-Dreyfus was winning her fifth straight Emmy for Veep.

    The phone call at the end of “Ozymandias” is probably the reason Bryan Cranston and Anna Gunn both won for the final season of Breaking Bad.

    James Spader’s wins for Boston Legal are all about the closing arguments and Jeff Daniels winning for The Newsroom is just for that first scene of the pilot.

    Laurie Metcalf/Jackie’s call to Auntie Barbara in Roseanne‘s “Wait ‘Til Your Father Gets Home.”

    I think a lot of Jon Hamm’s win was just as a good-bye and had much to do with the expanded voting, but for those that watched submissions, that phone call to Peggy in “Person to Person” made it easy for voters to check the box.

    Megan Mullally’s confession to Grace about her fetish-film past including the Grey Goose on the ledge in “To Serve and Disinfect” was unbeatable:

    The confrontation with Will in the final moments of “The Kid Stays Out of the Picture” was the clincher for Debra Messing.

    James Gandolfini & Edie Falco in “The Sopranos” • “Whitecaps”

    The whole fucking episode, but let’s say the fight scene in the pool house clinched the deal for the both of them. *bows* #bosses

    “Whitecaps” may very well be the best drama tapes ever, and Falco and Gandolfini’s performances show why.

    I’m going to throw my two cents in here and name several Emmy-clinching scenes of my own:

    David Hyde Pierce sealed his second Emmy award in the last scene of “The Maris Counselor” when he tells Frasier about his impending divorce from Maris.

    Dennis Franz won his second Emmy in “Closing Time” in the scene with the priest in the police station. Franz’s performance that entire episode was money, though.

    Damian Lewis won his only Emmy for Homeland in the scene where is on the phone with his daughter, promising her that he is coming home.

    Kelsey Grammer’s second Emmy for Frasier may have been sealed when he kept rocking his bed together and acting like he was having sex to make his ex-wife jealous.

    Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) confronting Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) in BB S5B – “Confessions”

    Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) confronting Walt (Bryan Cranston) in BB S4 – “End Times”

    These are almost identical scenes where Aaron Paul is highly emotional and pointing a gun at a character

    Breaking Bad is hardest for me to choose because they just started bleeding clinching scenes after a while.

    I have one that should have clinched it but didn’t, Martin Sheen ranting at God in latin in the west wing. I can’t believe he didn’t win.

    One that actually did win, Archie Panjabi’s scene testifying in the episode “Hi” definitely clinched it for her that year.

    I think he didn’t win for that because it was his only real scene in the episode. Most of the time, his character was played by a different actor in flashbacks. I was surprised he lost that year too at the time, but going back and watching the episode again recently, I understand better.

    I suppose that makes sense, I still would have given to him just on that scene. It’s a shame out of all the awards the west wing won, Sheen never did

    Another great Veep example is Tony Hale’s second win for that scene where he yells at Selina in season 4’s “East Wing.”

    Glenn Close in “Trust Me”…being held hostage by Ellen. She was mesmerizing. For that matter, those scenes for Rose Byrne should have also won her the Emmy.

    Julianna Margulies in “The Last Call”…listening to Will’s voice mail (I think that’s the final scene of the episode)

    Dianne Wiest “Week 6” (I think this was her Emmy tape)…the scene where she finally had it with Paul and yelled back at him.

    Allison Janney had a really good scene opposite Michael Sheen in her winning episode in “Masters of Sex” (also, that year, Kate Burton had an explosive scene in the beginning of her “Scandal” episode submission that really rivaled Janney…I think some thought Burton would win with that scene).
