For me, it was Kerry Washington losing Best Drama Actress to Claire Danes two years ago.
Washington made “Scandal” into appointment television. That she would have been the first African American to win this category (and in a show by Shonda Rimes, the first African American woman to create so many hour-long dramas) would have made her victory even more special.
What defeat keeps you up at night, wondering where did it all go wrong?August 25, 2015 at 8:29 am #359246
