    What would you say is the most emotional (as in moving) reaction to an Emmy win you’ve ever seen in your life?

    My favorite is when Aaron Paul won his second Emmy for Breaking Bad. In a weird situation where the two frontrunners are also colleagues from the same show, the tremendous amount of respect the two have for each other shows in how Giancarlo immediately yells “YES” when he hears of Aaron’s name, and in their hug and later the shout out that Aaron gives him while on the stage for the acceptance speech.

    Here’s the video, in case you’ve never seen it:

    Michael J. Fox winning the Emmy for “Spin City” in 2000. It was right when he was going into semi-retirement, and had a number of great factors:

    – The entire audience standing up to give him an ovation
    – Kelsey Grammer mouthing “Michael J. Fox” with a smile right before the name was called
    – Fox stating how proud he was to see his wife Tracy earn an Emmy nomination that year, and thanking everyone at home for making it “a great ride”.

    Thankfully, Fox has managed to work through his condition, but that was definitely a way of going out on top.

    Seeing these clips posted reminds me of what a terrible job the Emmys do for advertising their own history.

    Another great one from 2002 – Michael Chiklis winning Best Actor in a Drama for “The Shield”. Tough competition, but a well-earned prize that was greeted with rapturous applause (Shawn Ryan’s overjoyed reaction is particularly great to see). I believe it was also one of the first big awards that FX (the “formerly small network”) ever got from the Emmys, and helped establish them as a place where great television was welcomed.

    for me it was when Stockard Channing won her second emmy in that very same night in 2002 (?)
    hell she was overwhelmed and obviously hugely happy
    love you Stockard!

    Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series 2013 – Henry Bromell – Homeland (episode: “Q&A”)

    His wife Sarah having the courage to come out and accept on his behalf after his death earlier in the year. A very emotional moment.

    Ones that immediately come to mind:

    1. Michael Chiklis, The Shield – It felt like he was delivering a speech after winning an Oscar (and that isn’t a jab). He was humbled, respectful, and genuinely emotional. One of my favorite speeches ever, proof of how unlike his iconic character really is.

    2. Felicity Huffman, Desperate Housewives – I think even she knew it was going to one of her two costars, Teri Hatcher (the Globe-and-SAG-champ-slash-it-girl) or Marcia Cross (mostly everyone agreed the three submissions made her shine the brightest). Even better was Eva Longoria’s reaction behind her. 

    3. Merritt Wever, Nurse Jackie – It’s not my favorite, but it’s definitely emotional. I wish she could have mustered up the strength to at least think her series and network, but she was at a loss of words, which was, amongst many things (e.g. wins that will forever be unexplainable) endearing. 

    4. Margo Martindale, Justified – “Some times, things just take time.” Loved it. 

    5. Drea de Matteo, The Sopranos – Sort of in the Merritt Wever category (even though this is one of the best wins the category ever got right).

    6. Shohreh Aghdashloo, House of Sadam – She herself said this was a huge deal for both her and her country. Loved this speech. 

    7. Stockard Channing, The West Wing ‘and’ The Matthew Shepard Story – She went into the 2002 ceremony with seven previous Emmy losses. She first won that night for The West Wing, which was a shock (because she should have been in Guest) but then she won for her best performance to date in The Matthew Shepard Story. It was truly her night to shine and the Emmys certainly didn’t mind playing catch-up, making her eighth and ninth times the charm.

    The one that comes to mind off the bat is Weaver. Short and to the point and she was in complete shock

    I feel for Giancarlo. He might be happy for Aaron and certainly wished him well but you can see in his eyes that he truly wanted to win. This “YES” was part sincere, part Oscar-worthy performance that gave him time to process the loss in a second but I can really understand him and if he was to lose, he surely would lose to Aaron of all people in the category.

    I don’t think Debra Messing’s was that emotional, but I did find it sweet that she looked extremely relieved and excited that she finally got her own Emmy. You can’t really be in a cast of just four people (plus Morrison) and be the only one without an Emmy and not get a biiiiit desperate if you keep being nominated. Specially since it was about 2 or 3 years after McCormack’s, so like she said, it did look like it was never going to happen, even if it was very much predicted that particular year. Mullally was very excited for her and Messing’s laughs were emotional enough for this thread.

    I agree with Wever, DeMatteo and I would like to add Lisa Kudrow to this list of people who are so geniunely shocked that they just can’t really do a speech and just stumble with a what who where me? thank you! bye!. Having said that, considering the submissions, competition and popularity, Wever should’ve the only one shocked out these three.
