    Everybody Loves Raymond was a critical and award show darling throughout its run. It recieved over 60 Emmy nominations and won 14 (including two for Best Comedy Series) And it was also nominated for 22 SAG Awards. 

    Even though everyone else celebrated the show so much, the HFPA only gave the show two nominations for Best Comedy Actor in 1999 and 2000.  

    Does anyone have an idea why they ignored the show?

    An area where the Globes was actually right? Raymond makes Modern Family look complex.

    The Globes do this a lot. Will & Grace is an example of a show that won the Emmy for Best Comedy in it’s second season; and saw it’s entire main cast win Emmy’s and yet, the show never won a Golden Globe, EVER.

    I am recently rewatching the show on Netflix and even though I am in the show’s first season, it was still laugh-out-loud hilarious. I love the series, but it’s unfortunate that the Globes never embraced it.

    It’s kinda obvious why that was, “Raymond” was a fairly traditional family sitcom on at a time when progressive shows like “Sex and the City” “Ally McBeal” and “Will and Grace” were what really caught the attention of the HFPA the Golden Globes award edgy shows far more than the EMMYs do. That is why Modern Family won one globe while GLEE has two and GIRLS a very edgy show has two.

    I never really viewed Raymond as “must see” but I always wondered why the Globes ignored it as well.
