    With Kathy Bates submitting such a great episode, she is absolutely competitve for the win. Here are the pros of her going in the race.

    – She’s 0-9 going into the Emmys.
    – She has two noms this year in Guest Comedy Actress for Two and a Half Men and of course Lead Drama Actress for Harry’s Law. Should she lose both she’ll then be 0-11. We’re nearing Angela Lansbury territory (0-18).
    – Oscar winner/vet.
    – Has worked just as much television as film, being in leading roles, supporting roles, guest roles, writing, directing, and producing. She isn’t just a film actress that jumped over to television.
    – GREAT submission.
    – Lost last year. This category doesn’t mind playing catch-up. Julianna Margulies, Kyra Sedgwick, Gillian Anderson, Christine Lahti, etc.
    – David E. Kelley series. Emmy loves his actors.
    – NBC’s #1 rated drama series. (Makes no sense they canceled it. None at all.)

    Cons:
    – Claire Danes.
    – Canceled.

    Danes is vulnerable. For this category I could see her being sort of the next Jennifer Garner. Emmy is hesitant at honoring these types of roles in this category. The same comparison can be made for Kiefer Sutherland with Damian Lewis.

    But, if this show wasn’t canceled, I would rank her higher. It’s the only thing making me hesitant.

    Which brings me to my next point. 

    Lost, Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, The West Wing, Friends, The Golden Girls, Sex and the City, etc. all chose to end. That’s one thing.

    But what series received nominations and even wins after a show was axed by a network?

    Off the top of my head, I have…

    Winners:
    – Kristin Chenoweth, Pushing Daisies, Supp. Comedy Actress
    – John Goodman, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Guest Drama Actor

    Nominees:
    – Kathy Bates, Harry’s Law, Lead Drama Actress
    – Jean Smart, Harry’s Law, Guest Drama Actress
    – Christina Applegate, Samantha Who?, Lead Comedy Actress
    – Stockard Channing, Out of Practice, Lead Comedy Actress
    – Bonnie Hunt, Life with Bonnie, Lead Comedy Actress 

    Who else?

    HL had terrible ratings, that’s what matters for advertising, and I don’t think she will beat Danes that has a tape like The Vest.

    Samantha Who was cancelled in 2009, but Jean Smart won Supporting Actress in a Comedy 2008.  However, Christina Applegate was nominated in 2009 for Lead Actress in A Comedy while Jean Smart did not get nominated.

    Lisa Kudrow was nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy in 2006 for The Comeback which was cancelled after one season.

    Cicely Tyson was nominated for Lead Actress in a Drama in 1995 for Sweet Justice which lasted only one season.

    Alex Rocco won Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series in 1990 for The Famous Teddy Z which lasted only one season.

    Tim Reid was nominated for Lead Actor in a Comedy Series in 1988 for Frank’s Place which lasted only one season.

    Overdue factor doesn’t play a big role in Emmy. If Bates didn’t get so many nominations based on name recognition, her record wouldn’t be 0-11. Perhaps she will win someday when she does an HBO movie or guest stars in an Emmy favorite show with juicy material.

    The thing about Bates is that it’s not even obvious she’s going for her 11th possible loss already. It’s not like Lansbury where she keeps on losing year after year for the same role. Bates’s noms were scattered, and it doesn’t give her a feeling of overdue.

    You’re right about this. Golly, I didn’t realize how well Lead Comedy Actress candidates fared, even when their shows are/were canceled in as little as one to two seasons. Knowing this, I might have placed Emmy darling Kristin Chenoweth/GCB in after all.

    And I would have loved a nom for Alicia Silverstone/Miss Match a few years ago. Maybe she would have got in had there been six spots at the time. And then a tie for seventh a la 2011-2012!

    Dana Delaney and Marg Helgenberger were nominated TWO TIMES! after China Beach got cancelled.

    It was cancelled (or stopped airing) in 1990 after nine episodes and they got nominated and lost in 1991. Then seven episodes aired after 1991’s cutoff date so they got nominated again in 1992 and Delaney actually won.

    It’s weird that you all mention Claire Danes in this thread as a threat for Kathy Bates but not as a nominee for a cancelled show, My So Called Life.

    Tyne Daly won for Christie for it’s only season. She also got nominated for Judging Amy’s final season after it was cancelled.

    James Earl Jones, Madge Sinclair and David Opatoshu (guest) won for Gabriel Fire’s only season. The show did come back as Pros and Cons but I’ve read it was a revamped version, so one could say Gabriel’s Fire did get sort of cancelled.

    Sam Waterston, Regina Taylor and Mary Alice got nominated for I’ll Fly Away in 1993 after it was cancelled. Mary Alice won.

    Judd Hirsch, Carol Kane and Christopher Lloyd won for Taxi’s final season after it was cancelled. Danny DeVito got nominated. I think this was the year that Hirsch told the network to renew the show during his Emmy speech.

    Blair Brown was nominated for The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd after NBC cancelled it in its second season. The show then got picked up by Lifetime.

    Dabney Coleman and Joanna Cassidy were nominated for Buffalo Bill’s final season.

    Ellen DeGeneres was nominated for Ellen after it was cancelled. Emma Thompson won.

    Jane Kaczmareck and Bryan Cranston got nominated after Malcolm in the Middle was cancelled.

    Blythe Danner, Oliver Platt and Swoosie Kurtz got nominated after Huff was cancelled. Danner won.

    Andre Braugher won for Thief after it was cancelled and entered as a miniseries.

    Will Arnett was nominated for Arrested Development after it was cancelled.

    Marion Ross was nominated for Brooklyn Bridge after it was cancelled. 

    Jayne Medows was nominated after High Society was cancelled.

    Not an incredibly big nomination, but CBS’ ‘The Class’ was nominated for Art Direction. I had to say it because it was such a great show that was canceled too soon (despite good reviews and ratings).

    Also, Ashley Judd has been nominated this year for Lead Actress on Missing. The show was submitted as a miniseries but is in actuality just a failed series.

    I don’t get the Jennifer Garner comparison at all. First, “Alias” was never as well received as “Homeland” has been in its first year. Second, besides the C.I.A., what other similarities exist between the characters or the show? “Homeland” is slow build terriorist thriller with focus on characterization, while “Alias” was a sci-fi-ish/fantasy-ish spy action drama. And I love Sydney Bristow, but she was never bipolar and intense like that, so that character was never as baity as Carrie Matheson. 

    EDIT: I’m sorry, I don’t mean to sound like a jerk or anything, but I have to ask, did you even watch “Homeland”? How is Damian Lewis’ character and performance anyway similar to the adrenaline driven performance of Sutherland?

    Actually “Christy” had two seasons and because of scheduling, it was eligible three years (1994, 1995 & 1996) at the Emmys.

    It’s really impressive how Tyne Daly won in 1996 for the episodes that CBS burned off in the summer of 1995.
