    Has anybody other than Sarah Palin been the basis of two Emmy winning performances by different actors?

    Both Judi Davis and Tammy Blanchard won Emmys for playing Judy Garland – in the same movie.

    Albert Finney and Brendan Gleeson have both (recently) won Emmys for playing Winston Churchill in the Lead Actor Miniseries/Movie Category. Finney won for The Gathering Storm in 2002 and Gleeson for Into the Storm in 2009.

    Harry Truman came close to getting two performers Emmys. Ed Flanders won in 1977 for Harry Truman: Plainly Speaking, while I assume that Gary Sinise was a frontrunner to win for Truman in 1996 (based on his Golden Globe and SAG wins) before he eventually lost to Alan Rickman.

    Was Fey’s win credited “as Sarah Palin” or “as herself/various characters?” SNL Emmy submissions for actors are usually credited as themselves or as various characters.

    I believe she won for the SNL Presidential Bash so she would’ve been credited as Palin.
