    Connie Britton’s nomination for “Nashville” as Lead Drama Actress comes one year after being nominated for “American Horror Story” as Lead Movie/Mini Actress and two years after being nommed for “Friday Night Lights” as Lead Drama Actress.

    Can you think of anyone else who’s been nominated thrice for a trio different roles over three consecutive years?

    I’m coming up blank. Hmm…

    I can’t even think of 2 noms in 2 years for 2 series. As series regulars and not guest appearances, I mean. And boy has the Academy gone out of its way to apologize for Britton’s snubbing of the first years of FNL or what? What scares me is what if they decide to throw her more than just a bone this year? Obviously she’s on their radar and they like her.

    Kelsey Grammer comes close — 3 nominations for 3 different shows in a 5 year span (playing Frasier Crane in all of them).

    1990 — Supporting Actor (Cheers)

    1992 — Lead Actor (Wings) — a guest role, but they didn’t have those categories this year for some reason

    1994 — Lead Actor (Frasier)

    Yeah, if you asked me a few years ago that Britton would get to this level of Emmy attention, I would’ve laughed in your face and declared it nonsense. If this is the ATAS’s way of apologizing to Britton for snubbing her for Seasons 1-3 of FNL, and not giving the Emmy to her for seasons 4-5 of FNL when they had the chance, then I’m fine with it. I don’t think any role/performance of hers will ever outshine her work as Tami Taylor (what a perfect match of character and actress), but makeup wins sometimes happen, and for Nashville I wouldn’t mind. If it happened for AHS last year, that would be another story.

    Stockard Channing springs to mind. (Also James Spader, but the OP mentioned this being about different roles.)

    That would mean she would have beaten Julianne Moore…  The very idea of that…

    Amy Poehler for SNL and Parks & Rec 2009-2010.

    I’d say two years for different series would be just as impressive as 3 with a mini/movie nom.

    Well, Robert Guillame won Supp. Actor in 1979 for “SOAP” and was nominated in 1980 in Lead Actor for “Benson”, and starting in 1982 he got nominated four more times for that role on “Benson. So 2 shows!

    Betty White comes to mind:

    As we all know Betty has been nominated a ton of times, but a few of those times fit this pattern:

    1951— Nominated for “Life with Elizabeth” (A regional one, I believe).

    1975-1977- Nominated for “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” (won 1975-1976)

    1986-1992- Nominated for “The Golden Girls” (won in 1986)

    1996- Won for “The John Larroquette Show”

    1997— Nominated for “Suddenly Susan”

    2003- Nominated for “Yes, Dear”

    2004- Nominated for “The Practice”

    2009- Nominated for “My Name Is Earl”

    2010- Won for “Saturday Night Live”

    2011– Nominated for “Hot In Cleveland”

    2012-2013- Nominated for “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers”.

    Blythe Danner received three nominations for three different works in the same year (and winning one)! Not what you asked about at all, I know, but it’s an impressive achievement all the same.

    I too pretend Connie’s nods for her lesser work are apology nods for being snubbed for the early years of FNL. And no disrespect to her since she has said in interviews that these post Tami Taylor roles are ones she sees as challenges for her as an actress. I as a fan just haven’t been impressed with them.
