Let these words sink in for a moment: Christina Applegate, Emmy winner. Yes, that's the same Applegate who first gained fame as Kelly Bundy - and now she's won an Emmy. I'm very glad to hear the news, actually; I always thought that her work on Married with Children was much better than she ever received credit for, showing quite a knack for broad (and at times, physical) comedy. Due to the series' subject matter (and general, blissful crassness), Applegate was destined never to receive honors of any kind for the show (the same was true for Katey Sagal, a consistantly marvelous actress). Now, thanks to her work on Friends (which was quite fine, and her recurring role will continue this season), she's been awarded an Emmy. Sometimes, things work out the way they should.
