    Although they have gotten much better in the past few years, sometimes Emmy voters fail to even nominate the best show or actor in the category.

    This is all subjective but what Emmy should-be winners got left off the ballot entirely? Here’s my list:

    2011 – 2012:
    Lead Actress in a Drama Series: Emmy Rossum (“Shameless”)
    She is one of the most fascinating characters on television and her self-destructive nature during S2 is the captivating hook for the season. Intelligent, vulnerable and fierce — sometimes in the same scene, Emmy Rossum deserves the trophy more than any of the other ladies (Claire Danes, included). 

    Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series: Nick Offerman (“Parks & Recreation”)
    Ron Swanson was comedy gold yet again this year. Whether it be camping with an all boys club, confrontations with his mom AND ex girlfriend or putting aside ideological differences to help Leslie’s campaign, Offerman was on fire. The scary part is that he was even better last year.

    Oustanding Comedy Series: “Parks and Recreation”
    I’ve spoken at length about this one. No comedy mixes heart and hilarity like this one.

    What come to mind for you guys? You can reach back a few years as well if you think voters got everything right this time around. I’m guessing “The Wire” will be a recurring one…

    No to all three examples. They each deserved nominations at best.

    I doubt The Wire would have won series even if it had been nominated. The tape system would have always killed it.

    Lauren Graham had tons of great tapes for the drama or comedy category in the first five seasons for Gg. Kelly Bishop had multiple tapes for seasons two and four.

    Sarah Michelle Gellar for “The Body” or “Becoming” of ‘Buffy’.

    FNL had dramatic, Emmy friendly tapes in seasons one and four. It could have won series. Britton would have won supporting actress for season two’s “Bad Ideas” had she even made the top ten. Zach Gilford for “The Son”.

    John C McGinley for all seasons of Scrubs

    John Noble had competitive tapes in seasons two, three and four of Fringe.

    Mary McDonnell in seasons two and four of Battlestar Galatica.

    Yunjin Kim for Season 1 of Lost.

    Courteney Cox could have won with the Halloween episode of Season 2 of Cougar Town.

    Matthew Perry in Season 5 of Friends.

    Dixie Carter and Jean Smart in multiple seasons of Designing Women. (The year that Smart could have submitted “I”ll Be Seeing You” and “How Great Thou Art” would have been one of the greatest supporting actress in a comedy reels of all time.)

    Yeah, definitely Lauren Graham. She was probably close to getting a nomination in season two also, since she had been nominated for GG and SAG. Unfortunately, Rachel Griffiths saw herself as lead that year and got the nomination instead of her. Had she been nominated, she had a few very competitive episodes, and could’ve even become a perennial nominee and eventual winner at some point.

    Martha Plimpton could have won lead or supporting comedy actress this year with the “Tarot Cards” episode or even the Vegas episode of Raising Hope.

    Ditto Garret Dillahunt, who could have submitted almost any episode of the season and easily take the category.

    Jane Krakowski easily wins Comedy Supporting Actress had she been nominated.

    Martha Plimpton this year with Tarot Cards.

    Jane Krakowski this year for Kidnapped by Danger, Murphy Brown Lied to Us or any of the Season 6 episodes. 

    Lauren Graham for Gilmore Girls. This makes me sad.

    I don’t want to be rude, but don’t we already have a billion threads like this under different titles??

    I think I have mentioned Lauren Graham and Chloe Sevigny regarding this topic at least 3 times the past month.

    Not to be rude, but why do you care so much.

    Why talk about the same things over and over again? It’s not like other people than Dixie Carter, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Nick Offerman and alike will be mentioned here.

    Frankly, I’d also add Annie Potts to the mix.  She was to me vastly underrated and brought a lot of heart to her role.

    That entire ensemble was Emmy-worthy almost straight through til the end (minus Julia Duffy and Jan Hooks).

    Lauren Graham was in comedy in 2002.

    No, she wasn’t. At the time, “Gilmore Girls” was submitted as drama. She was nominated for SAG and GG in drama.
