    I just realized that because of The Game of Thrones sweep Peter Dinklage won for a 2nd time up against Alan Cumming since they were nominated in the same category in 2011 and Dinklage won. Is this unprecented? Or was there a time before where an actor was nominated then got snubbed 3 times and was nominated up again and lost to the same actor as before?

    Maybe Annette Bening bought him a drink later that night…

    Not as many years as Cumming, but Sam Waterston lost to Dennis Franz in 1997, snubbed in 1998, lost to Franz yet again in 1999.

    Hugh Laurie was snubbed in 2006, lost to James Spader in 2005 and 2007.

    Melissa McCarthy was snubbed for Mike & Molly in 2013, lost to Julia Louis Dreyfuss in 2012 and 2014.

    Not the same but Matt LeBlanc lost to Jim Parsons in 2011, not elegible in 2012, again lost to Parsons in 2013.

    And of course nothing can be worse or crazier than Lisa Kudrow losing to Julia Louis Dreyfus for Christine, waiting 8 years for a second season for her same show and losing to…Julia Louis Dreyfus but in a different show. Specially when you consider that both times Kudrow should’ve won.

    Yep, I was just going to mention this. Really unfortunate timing, lol. And a huge travesty.

    Really? No one even talked about her loss and there was no buzz for her, the buzz was all for amy Poehler a close second along with amy shcumer which was even more of a second favorite than Poehler, I don’t even think she was in the conversation for that win.

    Which is why it was a travesty, lol. She gave the best performance in the category by a mile, and no one cared.

    Another weird fact is Jeffrey Tambor lost out to David Hyde Pierce in 1998 for Frasier while he was nominated for The Larry Sanders Show then six years later Tambor was nominated for Arrested Development and David Hyde Pierce won for the last season of Frasier so he lost to DHP for the same show while Jeffrey was nominated for two different shows.

    not the same gap but Eric McCormack (Will & Grace) was nominated in 2003 and lost to Tony Shalhoub (Monk), snubbed in 2004, nominated in 2005 and lost to Shalhoub again.

    This exact thing almost happened to Jon Hamm this year, with Kyle Chandler beating him for “Friday Night Lights” and what would have been “Bloodline.” Under the old episode submission, Chandler would have pulled it off. Under this new system, Chandler was likely third behind Hamm and Spacey. Not complaining; I’m thrilled Jon Hamm finally has an Emmy. 

    And it truly stinks about Kudrow. I kind of wish HBO would have waited until this past summer or even this fall to air it. It would have been the 10-year anniversary (opposed to nine). I’m guessing Ellie Kemper would have gotten Kudrow’s spot at the Emmys.  

    Most definitely, Kudrow didn’t even crack the top three: JLD pulled off her win in the year of “Veep.” Right behind her was Amy Schumer, who had such a breakout year that the Emmys created a new category for her. Then in third was Amy Poehler in all her due-factor/now-or-never glory. I’m guessing that put Kudrow in fourth, if for no other reason than I have to believe at least some voters still believe in the episode-submission system (and honoring the actual best performance).
