    A couple of big ones for me are the “24” supporting cast in its first four seasons, particularly Penny Johnson Jerald and Dennis Haysbert.

    Courteney Cox on “Friends” was another big one.

    The women of “Lost” never got the time of day — except that make-up guest acting nomination for Elizabeth Mitchell, which barely even counts since she was only on screen for a couple of minutes that time.

    I think Tracy Morgan should have received more than just the one nomination for 30 Rock. Nick Offerman certainly for Parks & Recreation, but that under performed quite often at the Emmys. I second John Krasinki- he should have definitely gotten in for Season 2. Also maybe Tony Hale for Arrested Development, but that’s a bit picky saying that the show still managed to get 4 of its actors nominated.

    Jayma Mays (Glee) and Courtney Cox (Friends) are the two that immediately spring to mind.

    No nominations for Andy Griffith as Sheriff Andy Taylor on The Andy Griffith Show. His finest moment occurs in Opie the Birdman where the widowed sheriff helps his son better understand parenting and how to move forward without his mother. A lovely, underplayed performance.

    No nominations for Wayne Knight as Newman on Seinfeld. Is there a funnier scene than Newman, a bottle of milk, and a mountain of muffin stumps?

    I’m not happy with the fact that Marcia Cross won nothing for Bree. She defined the show’s early success. Also she should’ve been nominated for seasons 2 and 4 (post season 5 I think she stopped trying though).

    Naomi Grossman as “Pepper” in “American Horror Story: Freak Show”. She was heartbreaking.

    These are just 3 I could think of:
    1)Michael Pitt- Boardwalk Empire
    2)Jeremy Sisto – Law and Order
    3) Corey Monteith – Glee
