Television Academy has recently added some old acceptance speeches to its youtube channel.
Here’s hoping they add more.
If they have Michael Learned’s, can they upload Richard Thomas’s win, and any other of Michael Learned’s wins??
These are a delight to watch.
It’s funny that there was a call, during awards presentation of acting winners, to specify location. (“The winner is: From Los Angeles….”) Thank goodness that went away.
I would like to see more 1970s winners. Patty Duke’s 1970 Emmy for NBC’s My Sweet Charlie was quite a trip!
One of my favorite wins is finally posted: the Valerie Harper-Sally Struthers tie in 1972. I almost started feeling bad when Harper mentioned Leachman, as she was the only non-winner in the category…and then I realized that she would go on to win NINE Emmys!
By contrast, for a very different “two winners in a category with three nominees” experience, I highly recommend checking out Daniel Day-Lewis, Jack Nicholson, and Robin Williams at the 2003 BFCA Awards.
