    Glenn Close’s “Get Out of the Car” in the first season of “Damages”

    Also in Season 2, I don’t remember what episode, but Patty was yelling at husband about how he betrayed her and she threw a glass. It was toward the end of the season. Here’s the scene on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZuxSi679jg

    Jessica Lange’s monologue in the finale in “AHS Murder House,” but also her squirrel monologue in “AHS: Asylum” (even though she didn’t win for Asylum) 

    Dianne Wiest exploding at Paul in “In Treatment” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSerp-qhpiU

    Some that come to mind….

    Michael Chiklis, The Shield (2002)-The final scene of his submission, “Pilot”

    Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad (2009)-The final scene of his submission, “Phoenix”

    Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad (2014)-Any one of his scenes in his submission, “Ozymandias”, would’ve been enough, but I’ll go with the telephone call. 

    Michael Emerson, Lost (2009)-The ending confronation with the Smoke Monster and the confession in his submission, “Dead is Dead”

    Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones (2011)-The confession scene about Tyrion’s first love in his submission, “Baelor”

    Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad (2012)-The standoff between Jesse and Walt in his submission, “End Times”

    Cherry Jones, 24 (2009)-The decision scene regarding the fate of the president’s daughter in her submission, “Day 7 7:00am-8:00am”

    Anna Gunn, Breaking Bad (2013)-The bedroom scene in her submission, “Fifty-One”

    Patricia Heaton without a doubt won her emmy for Bad Moon Rising for the scene where she just goes off at Ray. That is comedy gold, one of the funniest things ive ever seen. There was no way she was losing with that scene.

    Agree with all the Breaking Bad episode submission wins – they are all nearly perfect and had me on the verge of tears / a heart attack.

    I’ll add my two cents: Claire Danes’ first two wins in Homeland were phenomenal and so SO incredibly deserved. Season 1’s “The Vest” where she is recovering from her injuries and goes into full-blown mania is genius acting. And Season 2’s “Q&A” with the interrogation scene is one of the most memorable Homeland scenes, if not the most memorable.

    Sometimes as soon as an episode airs you know someone just won an Emmy, it’s happened couple of times: 
    ***************************
    It was December 2011, I was flipping through the channels when I saw “The West Wing” was about to air. Had never seen the show but knew it had won Emmys. It was in it’s 3rd season but decided to just watch it and see if the buzz was worthy. The first two episodes I ever watched of “The West Wing” were classics.

    The moment this scene aired, I knew Allison Janney was going to win the Emmy. Just a brilliant piece of acting in that final scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIXc74W2mg0

    Ditto for John Spencer’s Emmy winning episode, he has great scenes in the entire episode (drunk in the hotel room) but when this final scene came. WOW. Was moved to tears and knew he was a lock: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3rm6bpO8s0

     It’s no shock that after being introduced to the show with “The Woman of Qumar” and “Bartlet for America” i was hooked. One of my favorite series.
     ************************************
    Doris Roberts was a lock the moment the final scene in “The Lucky Suit” aired: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8neJpsFmzQg
    ***************************
    Granted, I thought when “The Kid Stays Out of the Picture” they would both win, but Messing finally got her overdue Emmy with the final fight scene: http://youtu.be/vIKwfDJiwc4?t=17m16s
    *********
    David Hyde Pierce was brilliant in “Three Valentines”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ymqzA6jVQY
    *******
    Tyne Daly won Supporting for “Requiem” for the eulogy , there was no way she was going to lose that year. Think she could of moved up to Lead and make a challange agaisnt Edie Falco in “Whitecaps”, granted Falco would likely be the victor.

    Claire Danes mixture in Homeland of different levels of drama. The scene in which she is sectioned, and in episodes like ‘The Weekend’ and ‘Q&A’, where she delicately handles the drama, often with Damian Lewis opposite her. The Weekend is also the episode I’d say won Damian Lewis the Emmy. 

    In ‘The Last Call’ from The Good Wife for Julianna Margulies, obviously that initial phone call which opens the scene inscribed her name on that stauette.

    Debra Messing, “Will & Grace”- “The Kid Stays Out Of The Picture”. The end scene where she & WIll have the massive dramatic argument.

    Also, Julianna Margulies for “In Sickness.” The scene where Alicia moves Peter out of the house is great, but even better was the next scene where an anger-fueled Alicia turns on rock music, gets dressed and puts on her make-up. As soon as I saw this in 2011, I immediately knew the lead actress race was unbeatable. Icing on the cake is that Margulies got another good scene in which she cries in front of Grace. A perfect submission.
