Winner - Edie Falco "The Sopranos"
Runners Up - Sharon Gless "Cagney & Lacey", Tyne Daly "Cagney & Lacey", Michael Learned "The Waltons", Julianna Margulies "The Good Wife"
Commentary - Edie Falco only won two Emmy awards for her role as Carmela Soprano, but in my opinion, she should have won about five. She has built on her success with the series Nurse Jackie, but the role that made her one of the most iconic characters and actresses in television history was Carmelo. She displayed such a ferocity, such determination and energy in this role, yet also had a hint of vulnerability. Simply put, Edie Falco was impeccable and brilliant, and I can't wait to see what she does next.
