    Jon Hamm & Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) “The Suitcase”, kind of the ultimate example, better than almost any winners.
    John Slattery “Long Weekend”, his best year and episode and least deserving competition.
    Christina Hendericks “The Other Woman”

    James Gandolfini “The Second Coming”, I mean come on.
    Edie Falco “The Second Coming”
    Aida Turturro “Soprano Home Movies”
    Lorraine Bracco “Employee of the Month”

    Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) “Everyone’s Waiting”

    Ian McShane (Deadwood) “The Whores Can Come”, criminal

    Henry Ian Cusick (Lost) “Live Together, Die Alone” (guest actor)
    Terry O’Quinn “Walkabout”, “The Moth”

    Glenn Close (The Shield) “Hurt”
    CCH Pounder “Dog House”, “Tar Baby”

    Jimmy Smits did win an Emmy, but for L.A. Law in the ’80s.

    I agree with the Delta Burke submission from her first nomination as Lead Actress in a Comedy for Designing Women. That was an excellent acting submission, and should have easily beaten Candice Bergen.

    I should clarify: “for those who never won” means for those roles/performances.

    Jennifer Garner – Alias –  The Two – Lead Actress 2004

    Garner should’ve won two years before with “Truth Be Told”. I still can’t believe Alisson Janney won instead when she didn’t have anywhere near the range Garner had to display in her episode. But then again, voters never really cared about Alias that much.

    Lorraine Bracco – “Employee of the Month” and Jon Hamm – ”The Suitcase” are the prime examples for me.

    ^ I think they both lost for the same reasons: obvious bait, an episode no real connection to the rest of the season, some rather awkward, unimpressive acting in spots of the episode.

    Steve Carell for “Goodbye, Michael”

    The fact that Jim Parsons won over Carell is abhorrent.  

    And, to a lesser extent, Amy Poehler for “Flu Season”.

    What?  Don’s character arc for the first half of Season 4 builds up to The Suitcase, and his arc for the rest of the season builds directly from it. Not liking it is a perfectly valid opinion, but saying it has no connection to the rest of the season is just completely incorrect.

    Hum, I think Icky means in terms of storyline, not thematic importance. The events in The Suitcase affect the character emotionally, but they are somewhat independent from the rest of the season.

    As far as “The Suitcase” goes, much as I enjoyed the writing and Moss’s work, that moment when Don finally burst into tears struck me as totally false. They should have used a better take. It was the emotional culmination of the episode and it fell flat. Thus, no Emmy.
