    I need your help building a Gold Derby photo gallery…
    DRUNKS AT THE EMMYS.

    This gallery will feature people who won Emmys for either playing regular drunks/alcoholics/drinkers (like Megan Mullally on Will & Grace) or playing them in the episodes for which they won (like Jim Parsons twice on The Big Bang Theory).

    Please provide examples and descriptions from the whole history of the Emmys and not just the past few years.

    Based on that thread title, I thought this subject was going to be about a WHOLE other thing.

    Kirstie Alley’s winning submission for Lead Actress in a Comedy for Cheers in 1991 involved her getting drunk  – Days of Wine and Neuroses”

    Sharon Gless’ winning submission for Lead Actress in a Drama for Cagney & Lacey in 1987 dealt with booze – Turn, Turn, Turn

    I thought that Jim Parson’s submission for Lead Actor in a Comedy for The Big Bang Theory – The Pants Alternative.

    John Spencer on The West Wing as Leo McGarry, a recovering alchoholic; the episode for which he won Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2002, ” Bartlet for America,” had flashbacks to a major relapse he had.

    My mind went to Matthew Perry refusing a beer when a bunch of waiters offered them at the Emmys recently.

    Anyway…wasn’t Kim Delaney an alcoholic on NYPD Blue?

    Does anyone know how much Andy Sipowicz’s alcoholism/recovery played into Dennis Franz’s tapes? I’ve pretty much only seen the show’s Pilot (which was Caruso’s submission from that year), and it featured him drinking excessively.

    Julie Bowen won last year for a Mod Fam episode where Claire goes out drinking.
    Melissa McCarthy’s Mike and Molly episode involved her getting drunk off cold medicine and wine.
    Peter Dinklage’s character on Game of Thrones loves wine.
    Not sure if it counts, but Margo Martindale made apple pie moonshine on Justified.

    Sorry these are all from recent years.

    Yeah, me too. I was kind of disappointed actually.

    But anyway, John Spencer comes to mind.

    Jeremy Piven won off an episode in which he gets drunk after he is fired, “Exodus”.

    When I saw this thread, I immediately thought of Michael Imperioli as drug addict/alcoholic Christopher Moltisanti on The Sopranos. I also thought of John Spencer (RIP), as well. On the Dennis Franz question, I think that the episode in which he won his third Emmy on, “Closing Time”, features him suffering a relapse after his son’s death. One last thing: Corey Stoll played an alcoholic/drug addict on House of Cards as Congressman Peter Russo. You can put him as a questionmark at the beginning of the gallery, like you guys did for the people who won Oscars for playing drunks gallery.

    If we’re extending this to addicts in general, then add Edie Falco for “Nurse Jackie”‘s pilot. A few names come to mind for Emmy nominees playing alcoholics and addicts, but you asked for Emmy winners.
