    There is a thread like this for the Oscars, but none for the Emmys.

    What moment at any point in the past years of the Emmys is your favorite. It can be a win, an appearance, a presentation, the face of a loser when they lost, etc.

    My personal favorite moment was Barbra Streisand’s performance in 2001, honoring the victims of the 9/11 attacks. That ceremony itself was a very good one, but Barbra’s performance made it spectacular.

    What’s yours?

    Well, given my username, it’s gonna be obvious, but Kyle Chandler winning Drama Lead Actor and Jason Katims winning Drama Writing last year. I didn’t think that FNL would ever get recognized, and 5 years of waiting finally paid off. Both wins were truly “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose” moments.

    Bryan Cranston’s win in 08. I hadn’t seen Breaking Bad at that point, but I always felt he should have won an emmy for Malcolm in the Middle back in the day, so I was happy for him.

    Terry O’Quinn’s win and his remark on “baking cookies on Wisteria Lane”. Iconic character and very worthy winner.

    Debra Messing’s win in 2003 was a long time coming. All of her 3 other co-stars had already been rewarded at previous ceremonies, and it was so great to see her finally recognised. Plus, her cast mates were clearly deliriously happy for her!

    I also enjoyed seeing Aaron Paul win in 2010, mainly because of the reaction he got when his name was called.

    Honestly every single actress from The Golden Girls. Especiallt Beatrice and Estelle because they both got theirs in 1988 and it completed everyone getting an emmt for that show.

    Hm…I have to go with 30 Rock’s first win. That was the first year I really got into the Emmys (although I wasn’t using this site). I didn’t even think 30 Rock would get nominated for Best Comedy Series because, besides Alec Baldwin, the show was snubbed at the Golden Globes and SAGs. That year, I thought it was Ugly Betty’s to lose. And if not, then The Office would prevail again. So…I was happily suprised by that year’s outcome.

    Bryan Cranston’s first win was pretty amazing. And Archie Panjabi winning was super adorable as well, even though she wasn’t necessarily my first choice.

    I also love the fact that all 4 Will and Grace castmembers won Emmys at one point or another.
