    G’Day,

    hoping you guys can help. Am about to start working on my next Emmy video spoof. For it I need a list of shows/performances that have never won at the Emmys.

     

    Ones that would fairly universally be considered snubs and embarresing (and NOT counting ones that can still win, e.g. Steve Carell).

     

    The Wire and the Six Feet Under cast are the kinds of things I’m thinking of.

     

    Thanks!

    Six Feet Under all the way. This show never winning Series, Writing or a major acting win proves that sometimes awards shows completely get it wrong. Thankfully, it has nominations to its name. Plus I’m happy to see a Directing win for Alan Ball (“Pilot”) and two Guest Actress wins for Patricia Clarkson. Selfishly, however, I would back up wins for Series, Writing (“Everyone’s Waiting”), Krause, Hall, Conroy, Griffiths and Ambrose. My absolute all-time favorite drama series.

    It’s a little sad that Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis didn’t get to have Emmys with their costars, Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon. All four were a team, all four deserving of wins.

    I’m frustrated by the lack of love Weeds has received, but MLP and Elizabeth Perkins botched their submissions so many times they never had a shot. Why Justin Kirk can’t garner a nod is beyond me.

    Friday Night Lights is right up there with The Wire. 

     

    Zach Gilford’s acting in “The Son” was mindblowing and was one of the best dramatic performances I’ve seen in a long time.  And of course it went unnoticed, which is a shame.  It was brilliant.

    Bill Maher is Emmy’s biggest loser over all. Among actors, Angela Lansbury holds the record. Now THAT’s a mystery for “Murder, She Wrote” sleuth to figure out, eh? Historically, one of the biggest oversights was TV’s self-proclaimed “Great One” Jackie Gleason, who never won an Emmy, but his side sick, Art Carney won 5 for portraying his goofy second banana. Andy Griffith never won either, but Don Knotts won for playing his goofy second banana. Buddy Ebsen went to his grave with out an Emmy.

    Definitely Lauren Graham for Gilmore girls. She´s been on the snub list year after year.

    Totally agree that Six Feet Under never winning series or for any of its main cast is just shameful.  The worst part is that the show also had some rotten luck in terms of timing for Emmy rule changes and whatnot.  At the time of the show’s second year of Emmy eligibility (the second and most of the third seasons of the show itself), the Emmys were not yet allowing “dangling” episodes (episodes that concluded a show’s season but aired after the May 31 deadline) to be submitted for consideration.  Had Lauren Ambrose specifically, and possibly the series itself and other performers, been allowed to submit episodes like the Season 3 finale “I’m Sorry, I’m Lost” things might have turned out differently.  I’m also pretty sure the show’s final year of Emmy eligibility coincided with the first dysfunctional year of Emmy pre-screening top 10s.  That system was clearly flawed, as the show submitted the knockout “Everyone’s Waiting” and was still unable to garner a Series nod.  Oh well, the show’s legacy is still as one of the most original, groundbreaking series to ever air on television, and it will always be remembered without the aid of Emmy wins.

    Yup.

     

    Personally I think he should have won an Emmy for what got him fired from ABC, but that’s just me.

    I like a lot of the names above. Here are a few others that come to mind.

     

    Anthony Edwards, ER

    John Mahoney, Frasier

    Rainn Wilson, The Office

    Jenna Fischer, The Office

    Amy Ryan, The Office (guest category)

    Matthew Perry, Friends

    Peter Krause, Sports Night/Six Feet Under

    Friday Night Lights

     

    (I know members of The Office and FNL could still win, but not realistically.)
