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.December 15, 2014 at 9:35 am #340024
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.December 15, 2014 at 9:50 am #340025
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.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantDecember 16, 2014 at 8:00 am #340027
Jeremy Piven, Entourage: Episode submission: “Exodus” The drunk scene
Bradley Whitford, The West Wing: Episode submission: “Noel” Josh loses it in the Oval Office
Edie Falco, The Sopranos: Episode submission: “Whitecaps” The first argument scene with Tony
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad: Episode submission: “Ozymandias” The phone call
James Gandolfini, The Sopranos: Episode submissiom : “Whitecaps” The pool house fight with Carmela

Debra Messing, “Will & Grace”- “The Kid Stays Out Of The Picture”. The end scene where she & WIll have the massive dramatic argument.December 17, 2014 at 4:00 pm #340029
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.
