Six fierce women faced off during Monday’s Emmy Awards ceremony — and in the end, Good triumphed.

RELATED Emmys 2014: And the Winners Are…

Julianna Margulies took home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her work on The Good Wife (her second win for the role of Alicia Florrick, and her third overall.)

“What a wonderful time for women on television!” Margulies exclaimed, before explaining that her award really belongs to the show’s writers and “gorgeous” cast — especially Christine “Beacon of Light” Baranski and Josh Charles, whom she misses every day.

To clinch this category, Margulies had to outdo some of television’s finest dramatic actresses, including Masters of Sex‘s Lizzy Caplan, Homeland‘s Claire Danes, Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery, Scandal‘s Kerry Washington and House of Cards‘ Robin Wright.

Do you think Margulies deserved to win, or would you have given the Emmy to another deserving actress? Drop a comment with your thoughts on Margulies’ victory below.

    Best show on TV. She had an amazing season and very much deserves the win.

    SOOO HAPPY she won! She was amazing this year! She killed it!

  3. jerry says:

    She really deserved it. The Good Wife had its best season this year and Julianna did amazing work.

  4. dan says:

    Correction: this is her third career win, but second for Good Wife. She won for supporting actress on ER.

  5. John says:

    Yes. By far the classiest actress in TV and such a powerful episode that was entered. Way to go!

  6. tahina45 says:

    So happy for Julianna, she really earned! Too bad for Christine and Josh though. and am really mad the show wasn’t even considered this time, it was one of the best seasons ever! :(

  7. Joey says:

    I feel so meh about this it isn’t even funny. Lizzy Caplan was beyond fantastic and her winning would’ve made my night.

  8. Jenna says:

    I would have preferred Lizzy Caplan, but JM is ok.

  9. ChicagoDan says:

    Pretty much since a season SEVEN with that win. No way CBS cancels after S6. This is the only drama that gets any critical or Emmy love. JM is a class act and it’s too bad TGW didn’t get nominated, but as has been said – tough for 22-episode shows to compete with those only producing 8-13 a season. (Really 8 episode should NOT have garnered an Emmy nomination for BB.)

  10. Coal says:

    I too would have preferred Lizzy Caplan, but the Good Wife and Person of Interest are probably the best two shows on network Tv for me so I’m fine with the win.

  11. YAYA says:

    Jules really deserved it! She’s an amazing actres… I’m so happy took the award again…

  12. Shruts says:

    Absolutely a well deserved win!! So happy for her…. such well talented actors should definitely win. :)

  13. jj says:

    well deserved especially after such a fantastic season. Still don’t understand how the show didn’t get a writing nomination

  14. Anna says:

    She deserved it, but next year goes to Lizzy

    Carrie Washington, Carrie Washington!!!!! How many times can I say her name. People run home to see Scandal, it’s can’t miss tv. The hottest show on TV. But the star of the show, can’t win. We watch for dialogue, and her influence on fashion is highly anticipated each week.

    Now as far as Ms. Julianna is concerned, I’ve always wondered how she manages to win for every show she’s on. From ER…up until now. Scandal, is number 1, because of Carrie. But this award has gone to everyone else nominated, except the person, who has the show…that everyone has to be in place for on Thursday night. Personally, I don’t know of anyone who leaves the bar early for “The Good Wife” or Robin Wright.

    Clearly, there is a problem here…and that’s the reason, the question was asked…Did the right person win. We all know the answer to that question. I already knew that “The Good Wife” would win, she is always nominated for everything thing she does, just like Helen Hunt….they have to be connected to some very “powerful people”.

    We all know who the real winner is here….Public opinion says, CARRIE WASHINGTON. And we know why she didn’t get the statue….RACISM

    One of the only bright spots of the Emmys this year, which were largely a total waste.

    I was very happy for her … but so sad for Josh Charles being ignored.

  17. VB says:

    Happy she won. Well-deserved. Too bad Baranski didn’t win. And don’t even get me started about Josh Charles. He was fantastic this season-right up there with Julia.

    JM indeed deserves the win. Not only is she is an exceedingly talented and skillful actress, but she is graciously beautiful and mindfully articulate………a female image to be admired for her hard and dedicated work ethic as she helps and supports others’ creative endeavors. Her awesome portrayal of the complex Alicia character denotes her intense role preparation and delivery discipline even within an unmatched schedule continuum. This Julianna is a merited human and Emmy winner.
