Emmy Moments: "The Streak is Over!"


Type in "Daytime Emmy Awards" on YouTube the first thing that pops up is Susan Lucci's win as Outstanding Lead Actress after an eighteen nomination losing streek. Shemar Moore ads to the intensity of the moment by shouting "the streak is over, Susan Lucci!" and the audience jumps to their feet as if one shouting, clapping and cheering.

Without question this one of my all time favorite Emmy memories.
