    Are there any shows that were popular at the Emmys years ago that could ever get back in for major categories?

    Examples:
    Grey’s Anatomy
    Law and Order: SVU

    Hard to say, because so much goes into getting Emmy rec unless it’s the perfect Emmy baity series with the right people behind it, on it and on the right network.

    The X-Files wasn’t Emmy friendly. Grey’s Anatomy would have been Emmy friendly in the 80’s and 90’s, not so much when it was getting Emmy nods. Both shows from a ratings, pop culture and critical standpoint were too big to ignore.

    The thread title is a lil misleading.

    I’m talking about shows that were nominated years ago, but have been snubbed for many years. I’m not talking about shows that were not Emmy friendly. I’m talking about shows that are still airing that got Emmy nominations years ago, but haven’t the past number of years.

    Oh, my bad. The title and then Demonlonglog’s reply confused me.

    Obviously The Big Bang Theory could come back strong for their final season as a goodbye hug. Same for Modern Family, though they are all but “forgotten” – but in the sense of lots of acting/writing/directing nominations.

    Honestly, Grey’s Anatomy is still very Emmy-worthy. Not the show itself (although there are a few worthy writing & directing episodes year by year), but the performances in it are usually so much better than the actual Emmy-lineup. Sandra Oh was Emmy-worthy all the way through her 10 seasons, and Chandra Wilson was pretty worthy as well. Not to mention poor Ellen Pompeo or Sarah Ramirez who both were incredibly strong since day one. Or Justin Chambers, or Kate Walsh, or Jessica Capshaw, or James Pickens Jr., or Sarah Drew , or Kevin McKidd, or Samantha Sloyan or Caterina Scorsone. And all those fantastic guest stars. It’s really sad that it’s not on Emmy radar any more, and it really just proves my point that it’s not about your performance, but more like about the show you are in. If you are on a show which is on the Emmy radar, you can even make the cut for a weak performance, but no one cares about you if you are in a critically flop show.

    Grey’s Anatomy is not critically panned.

    It’s not, but it’s not critically acclaimed, on the ‘Emmy-radar’ type of show either. It was for the first three seasons, after that, not really.

    I hoped Whoopi Goldberg would return Law and Order SVU to Emmy contention this year for her guest actress appearance as the administrator of a child social services agency. She was in the witness box and beautifully delivered a powerful and impassioned plea for understanding on the demands on public employees who are asked for miracles without public funding or support.

    Law and Order SVU once ruled the guest actress category. From 2000 to 2010, 15 actress were Emmy nominated for guest appearances. Five won. After the voters ignored Whoopi, I have sadly decided that the show has fallen off the radar.

    Yes, SVU and Grey’s are the poster child for this topic for sure. Without question. I was just thinking how crazy it is that Mariska Hargitay has managed 8 nominations for her work on SVU and then suddenly just fell off the radar, even as her performances got stronger and stronger.

    Grey’s is a particularly sad case as the show has improved dramatically every in the past few years and has delivered some truly powerful episodes and acting. It is really sad Ellen Pompeo has never gotten nominated.

    Secretly I still believe that Ellen Pompeo is going to be nominated one day…
