Whitney Houston Four Minute Emmy Winning Performance!

She sings for four minutes and wins an EMMY!

19 time losers Angela Lansbury & Susan Lucci must have been pissed.


Patti LaBelle - Great Performances: (PBS) For episode "Sylvia Fine Kaye's Musical Comedy Tonight III".

Jon Lovitz - Saturday Night Live: (NBC)

Sarah Vaughan - The 28th Annual Grammy Awards: (CBS)

Debbie Allen - An All-Star Celebration Honoring Martin Luther King Jr.: (NBC)

Stevie Wonder - An All-Star Celebration Honoring Martin Luther King Jr.: (NBC)

And to top it off, she didn't even show up to accept the award! Michele Lee (Knots Landing) was forced to accept on her behalf!

It is 40 seconds in.

Look, they buried her this weekend. Let it go.

We've all moved on to new things, OP: you're the only one still obsessing about her.

I won on try # 19.

Why does everyone seem to forget that?

R3. Whitney won the award, but she couldn't be there because she was performing at the Greek Theatre that same night. She wasn't simply a "no-show" as you tried to refer to her derogatively.

That is an odd selection for an Emmy. If you look at the other winners in that category in the link below, they are almost never rewarded for a single song on a variety show, but rather for an extended showcase (Billy Crystal hosting the Oscars) or a large role in a big show (George Hearn in Sweeney Todd; Elaine Stritch in her one-woman show, etc.) or for performing an entire concert (Streisand, Ronstadt, Manilow, Bennett.) I do remember Cloris Leachman winning for a single musical number in 1984, but it was a pretty amazing piece -- a lengthy musical monologue following the arc of an actress's career.

Exactly my point R10. She sings for 4 minutes and wins an Emmy for that?

Even the other nominees in that category did more than she did.
