Forgive me if this is already a topic, but I really want to know what episode submissions have rousing, passionate speeches this year?
Don’t forget, last year Jeff Daniels and Bobby Cannavale won for their speeches, so this could be a great indicator of who will win Emmys.July 28, 2014 at 8:29 pm #325977
– Peter Dinklage gives the most conventional and powerful speech.
– Bryan Cranston
– JLD must give at least a mock-speech in “Crate”
– Kerry Washington
– Ricky Gervais (about his dad)
– Don Cheadle opens his submission with a speech
– McConaughey has a long monologue in his submission
– Spacey makes speeches every time he turns to talk to the cameraJuly 28, 2014 at 8:38 pm #325978
Jesse Tyler Ferguson does in both his and Ty Burrell’s submissions.
Louie has an extended comedy routine in his submission.
All of the SNL submissions have a monologue.

Jane Fonda in “The Newsroom” — we talked to her about it today. We’ll post the video tomorrow (Tuesday) so you can watch.July 28, 2014 at 9:55 pm #325980
Anything Scandal of course. Does Papa Pope even let other people speak? He pauses and just when you think it’s safe to talk, he starts again.
I’ve gone through Supporting Actor and Actress and Lead Actress Comedy, no speeches there, not even Dreyfus.
McCarthy does get a monologue (or two) during theraphy, but I doubt they qualify as “speeches”.July 29, 2014 at 2:26 am #325981
Aaron Paul also gives a small monologue in the desert with Walt.July 29, 2014 at 5:59 am #325982
- JLD must give at least a mock-speech in “Crate”
There is a compilation of her giving multiple speeches to different crowds on her crate in “Crate,” but there isn’t an “Emmy speech” in it, and it doesn’t have a speech like she had in “Tears.”

I feel like there’s a speech between a “powerful monologue” and a “speech.” I haven’t watched all the tapes yet (including Jeff Daniels’)…but I haven’t seen any speeches as “speechy” as Jeff Daniels’ from last year. Like, Peter Dinklage gave more of an angry, powerful rant. Jane Fonda might come close to being a speech.
Yes, I am thinking about this too hard.July 29, 2014 at 3:13 pm #325984
This year the Best Actor in a Comedy race has a dark horse that could pull off a Merrit Weaver style upset and that is Matt LeBlanc who gives a hillarious speech and British actors coming to the U.S. and stealing all the good roles. If speeches are what the voters want LeBlanc sells it and should not be left out of the conversation.July 29, 2014 at 3:44 pm #325985
I’m pretty sure Dinklage’s rant counts as a speech, more than Fonda’s actually. Unless you think speeches have to be about a greater cause/politics, in which case sure but that’s a very narrow definition.July 30, 2014 at 7:24 pm #325986
Washington has great speech in “The Fluffer.”August 1, 2014 at 2:03 am #325987
Joe Mantello and Julia Roberts have rousing speechs in The Normal Heart. Jim Parsons has quiter ones.
Makes me wonder if Mantello could knock Matt Bomer out for the supporting award . Ultimately I’m sticking with Bomer since he has the larger more central role but Emmy voters do like their speechifying as Tom calls it.
