    I have a question besides Don Cheadle, Michael J. Fox, & Kyra Sedgewick is there anyone else who was nomianted four years as the lead of their show and the sole nominee for the show? I was thinking about it and it seems crazy that Spin City and House of Lies only got nominations for the stars of their shows. Can anyone find another example??

    In terms of multiple years, Tony Shaloub for Monk was his lone nominee for three years and in the other seasons, he was nominated, and there was a different guest actor each year.

    By my count, there are 11 performers from drama/comedy series this year that are the sole nominees from their shows. List is below. Am I missing anyone? It’ll be interesting to see if any of them win, as their shows have no other Emmy support. Janney won last year as the only “Mom” nominee, but how often does this happen?

    What’s really interesting this year is that there are a whopping eight leads, three supporting players and one guest star who are the only representatives of their series. That really proves the point that, in general, supporting and guest nominees mostly just get caught up in waves of love for their overall shows.

    COMEDY LEAD ACTOR
    Anthony Anderson, “Black-ish”
    Don Cheadle, “House of Lies”

    COMEDY LEAD ACTRESS
    Edie Falco, “Nurse Jackie”
    Lisa Kudrow, “The Comeback”
    Lily Tomlin, “Grace and Frankie”

    DRAMA LEAD ACTOR
    Jeff Daniels, “The Newsroom”
    Liev Schreiber, “Ray Donovan”

    DRAMA LEAD ACTRESS
    Tatiana Maslany, “Orphan Black”

    COMEDY SUPPORTING ACTRESS
    Allison Janney, “Mom”
    Niecy Nash, “Getting On”

    DRAMA GUEST ACTRESS
    Khandi Alexander, “Scandal”

    It’s weird how Mom isn’t even getting noms in the categories that are basically just “Here are some noms for CBS comedies” i.e. Multi-Cam Cinematography (Big Bang, Broke Girls, Molly, Millers) and Multi-Cam Editing (Big Bang, Broke Girls, Molly…Hot in Cleveland).

    TYNE DALY was also the only nominee for Judging Amy when she won. So she’s done this twice (also for Christie, already mentioned).

    Right?  The Emmys really hate the show.  I bet that Allison Janney only has one nomination left in her, even if and when she wins this year and next.  Blind name recognition nominations only last so long if voters do not care about your show.  And if you think that these craft nominations are not major snubs for Mom, remember that nominations are decided by the same popular vote that the actors’ branch uses.  The Millers got a cinematography nomination over Mom!  Remember that show?  It was the one that was randomly cancelled four episodes into its second season and it is currently getting burned off over the summer on Saturdays.  In fact, it did not even air enough episodes in the eligibility period to be eligible in the comedy series categories, but I guess the academy was snoozing on checking its eligibility.  We might even see The Millers take nominations away from Mom next year.  Mom has a three-time winner (eight-time nominee) doing its cinematography, by the way.

    For acting nominess in a Miniseries or Movie this year, only Ricky Gervais for Derek: The Special is the sole acting nominee to be recognized with no other nominations for the film. History indicates that it is easier for an actor to win the Emmy in these categories as a sole nominee than being the sole nominee for a TV series.

    Wait, I’m confused.
    Should we be talking about only sole nominations OR only sole acting nominations? 

    I’m pretty sure The Comeback scored one directing nom. back in 2006.

    You’re right. It also got a casting nomination for the first season. This year it is just Kudrow
