    Does anyone in the forum know why Melissa Leo won the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for Louie last year? Any opinions?

    I didn’t like the win, but she arguably had the best tape. I think she was singled out because of who she is, got the nomination because of the show’s popularity, and the win because of the tape.

    That car (‘rape’) scene was phenomenal though. Leo was fierce. Thoroughly deserved.

    I agree ETPhoneHome, her overall nomination was from the popularity of the show and her name recognition. However her win was because of her work on Louie. If you watch the edited tapes of the guest actresses in that category she is the clear winner. I predicted her to win because she stood out and offered something different than the rest of the nominees last year. She also had very little competition if you take into consideration SNL performers hardly win now when nominated against one another especially when one of the two nominees is McCarthy.

    Leo
    was great in her tape…deserved to win (though her nomination for
    “Mildred Pierce” a few years ago is questionable).

    I’m also always happy
    when non-SNL performers win/are nominated (can’t stand them in the comedy guest
    catergories).

    She was fantastic in that episode. That’s probably why.

    She was just that good. Her episode aired more than a year before the Emmys and everybody right away predicted her for a nomination and even a win. The performance and the weirdness of the episode were that good that she sustained that buzz all the way through.

    She won because it was a genuinely funny performance. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea though. Read the Youtube comments from MRAs. 

    And I don’t think she was nominated because of Louie’s popularity. It’s not like Louie’s done that great in the guest categories. The show always submits healthily in that category but has only gotten one nomination out of it.  We all thought Ellen Burstyn and/or Sarah Baker would get nominated this year and they didn’t. Last year, Parker Posey was a big contender but, still, no nomination.
