    In tribute to Kathryn Joosten, here is an article about posthumous Emmy nods since 1980. It also includes a photo gallery of the 14 people who were nominated after they died. HINT — Only one of them actually won the Emmy.

    The title of this thread scared the crap out of me even though it’s incredibly clever and totally interesting. 

    I have to say…It made me really want and wish one thing: Give Angela Lansbury a Lifetime Achievement Award. More than Murder, She Wrote, she’s done plenty of other television projects but she seems so devoted to the stage that I don’t see any major ones coming up any time soon. She couldn’t even win Drama Guest Actress for Law & Order: SVU. And a Lifetime Achievement Award is not a consolation prize; some consider it to be, but I give it way more merit than that.

    An addition: Ingrid Bergman died 3 weeks before she won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Special for A Woman Called Golda in 1982.

    Despite receiving a posthumous SAG Award for Outstanding Male Actor in a Drama Series, Law & Order‘s Jerry Orbach wasn’t even nominated for the Emmy.

    Hasn’t Audrey Hepburn died earlier the same year she won an Emmy for “Flower Gardens”? Sure, it’s not for performing, but it still counts. She supposedly completed her EGOT with posthumous Grammy and Emmy, right?

    I find the title of this in questionable taste, especially since Gold Derby has posted a picture of Phil Hartman,
    who was shot to death by his wife in a murder/suicide; so much for the “dying is easy” part!

    Do they still present lifetime achievement Emmys on the main telecast, or is it just the Oscars that now “relegate” them to a separate ceremony?
