Larry David won his first Emmy in 1993 for one of the most iconic episodes of Seinfeld.Competition.” Season 4, Episode 11 showed the group down to their usual antics hanging out at the iconic diner when they decide to see who can last the longest without indulging themselves. Absolute shenanigans follow, including Elaine running into the handsome John F. Kennedy Jr., George watching a nurse sponge another woman, and Jerry watching children’s cartoons to take his mind off the competition. This is a masterfully crafted episode , in which the characters find themselves in completely outrageous scenarios as the universe tries to convince them to give in to their urges.
At the awards ceremony in 1993, David received an award for “Outstanding Individual Achievement in Writing a Comedy”. His acceptance speech just as deadpan as fans would expect. “It’s all very good, but I’m still bald,” David told Emmy viewers. He thanked the cast and crew, but ended his speech by dedicating the award to all masters of their craft.
David based his award-winning episode on a similar competition from his past. The writer told Conan O’Brien that he and his friends created a competition to sort themselves out, and in the end David won, as did his Seinfeld colleague George Costanza.
