    I think we had a thread about this ages ago, but I couldn’t find it so I will just start a new one

    You can ask questions about past Emmy years here, and anyone who knows the answer can kindly answer it for you.

    In 2009, was Brendan Gleeson the favorite to win Best Actor in a TV Movie/Miniseries, or was Kevin Bacon the predicted winner?

    Was Jason Alexander ever considered a frontrunner to win for Seinfeld during any of his 7 times up at bat?

    How did the tape system worked back in the 90’s for Series nominees? I see in the submissions thread that there are up to 8 episodes in some years, but they’re not separated like we’re used to see now (Tape A, B and C and such).

    From what I understand, he was the favourite to win on his sixth nomination in 1997, but he lost to his costar Michael Richards. There were three previous winners and another perennial nominee (Tambor). It seemed like one he was going to win, but didn’t in the end.

    I didn’t follow them then but I’m pretty sure I remember reading that Everybody Loves Raymond was expected to repeat.

    Does anyone remember if Lisa Kudrow was expected to repeat for the 5th season of Friends? She had just won the year before and was going in with the episode where she gives birth, including the one where everyone finds out and she seduces Chandler. They’re excellent episodes (both some of the series best) and she was just coming off a win in addition to having both of Anistons episodes in the category. Was it a surprise when she lost to someone she had beat the year before and who wasn’t even in a best series nominee?

    Why did “Roseanne” never get a Best Comedy Series nomination? The Emmys clearly loved its actors (Metcalf won three times, Roseanne had a win, Gilbert had a few noms, and it won Best Writing in Season Four), but why not for the show? Was it because Roseanne and Tom Arnold were so polarizing at the height of their fame?

    Roseanne was always complicated Emmy story. It was shut out a lot in the early years of the show and Roseanne being Roseanne was quite willing do express her unhappiness about being overlooked. “Emmys suck!!” was her usual respose.  They eventually started nominating her and the other actors but Roseanne had made tons of enemies by then who probably just would’t vote for her no matter what.

    I remember some of these…

    ARRESTED’s WIN
    No, Arrested Development wasn’t the frontrunner. It was a bit of a shock, ELR was expected to repeat, but of course we now can see the tapes and can understand where that win came from. Also, the Emmys weren’t particularly in love or to use the more vulgar term “didn’t have a hard on” for any show during those years. Sure Shaloub was a huge favorite as were Roberts and Garrett, but nothing as awful as Modern Family now.

    LISA KUDROW 1999
    1999 was probably my first official Emmys (I had watched them before but with little interest): Lisa Kudrow was one of the frontrunners that year along with Lucy Liu. Looking at the tapes that was a truly great year for Liu, Kudrow and Johnston who ended up winning a very deserved Emmy with what she submitted. My vote would’ve gone to Kudrow, but I can’t be that upset that Johnston won. BY THE WAY: Jennifer Aniston was first nominated the following year, so no Aniston tapes to help out Kudrow.

    WENDIE MALICK
    I doubt Malick ever came close. Her first nomination was that Liu/Kudrow/Johnson battle, I don’t see how Malick could beat any of them. Then it was Doris Land when she was nominated again. 

    MICHAEL CHIKLIS
    Michael Chiklis was a frontrunner because, like it usually happens with people like him and Cranston, it was a very good Pilot, one of those that establishes a character and the actor so well and so strongly that there’s no need to consider anything else for submission or any other actor. However, I do remember that Michael C Hall had a very strong episode, many thought he would win, SFU was hot that year (two seasons qualified I think) and of course both were named Michael, there was a bit of movement on Hall’s part when Michael…..Chiklis was announced.

    If I’m remembering correctly, the consensus was that Jenna Fischer was the favorite for The Office. Conchata Ferrell had an alright tape too and you could never underestimate someone like Holland Taylor though.

    Why did the Academy get rid of the Guest Categories for that one time in 1992? And who was the frontrunner in the Drama Lead Actor race that Christopher Lloyd ended up winning?
