    The look on her face when she won. Pure shock. Every woman in that category deserved that....however, if you've ever watched The Crown you know why she won. She literally became Elizabeth II in her acting. Well done!

    +angeland8 They don't know.

    Let's do it.

  • Denise Rodas (Sep 17, 2018)

    Claire Foy deserved that Emmy, it was her final season in The Crown. Nothing but respect for my queen 👑

  • Anneska Kirideska (Sep 20, 2018)

    OMG im just watching s2. too bad I scrolled the comments now im spoiled 😭😭😭

  • The New Khan (Sep 20, 2018)

    Tatiana already has an Emmy.

  • Oz (Sep 17, 2018)

    Totally deserved, The Crown is criminally underwatched.

  • Maybe because we are tired of watching Eurocentric monarchical/political dramas.

  • Ewelina B (Mar 23, 2019)

    Messylin doesnt matter because the actress and the role they written her is very interesting so thats what this is about and why ppl loved this performance

  • Isabella Durilee (Sep 18, 2018)

    "The crown must win. Must always win."

  • jwelch5742 (Nov 1, 2018)

    Not everything.

  • Mj Espineli (Sep 26, 2018)

    Queen Mary's accent.😉

  • Nancy Chan (Sep 17, 2018)

    Wow what a tough category. All those women deserved an Emmy for those roles

  • Alex Reyes (Sep 25, 2018)

    Word. Hopefully Sandra Oh and Killing Eve keep the momentum and she scores a win and it’s bloody criminal that Keri Russell didn’t win one for Elizabeth Jennings.

  • Elisa Tambunga (Sep 17, 2018)

    Foy in the crown ... she has been brilliant and I don’t think anyone will ever be able to play the queen as well as she has!

  • parth sati (Mar 15, 2019)

    +Elijah Ezequiel Now an oscar winner

  • Leah Tragico (Sep 24, 2018)

    I was thinking. Emily Blunt.

  • Karen Claudino (Sep 18, 2018)

    "And I also dedicate this to Matt Smith". =')

  • Prashalan Jamenson (Nov 24, 2018)

    Wish she talked a little bit about Vanessa Kirby

  • Alexandro Tirador (Sep 17, 2018)

    She deserves it. She played queen Elizabeth with so much depth and understanding.

  • kristineanne 17 (Sep 18, 2018)

    I bet, all those who are bitter of Claire’s win haven’t watched a single episode of The Crown. 😒

  • prowlers (Dec 4, 2018)

    As an avid TV watcher, I watched every single one of those shows (unlike the Emmy voters) Claire won by popular vote because they all watched The Crown. Keri Russell or Sandra Oh were most deserving tbh, their performances were incredible.

  • kristineanne 17 (Sep 20, 2018)

    GreyMeredith thank you for being a smart viewer. I love Sandra Oh too! :)

  • Hannah!!! (Sep 17, 2018)

    For me, this was the toughest category. Every single woman deserved this award, and although Keri and Tatiana have also finished with their nominated roles, I am sure they will snap up other roles that will be award worthy. Sandra (hopefully) will have another great season and get the Emmy she has long deserved (Cristina Yang has some amazing moments).

  • Bridges of Wake County (Sep 18, 2018)

    Tatiana won 2 years ago so she has an Emmy for that role.

  • Moira K (Sep 17, 2018)

    Wanted to say exactly this. I wanted Sandra Oh to win the most but any one of these actresses could have walked away proudly.
