    Was there any Emmy win that pissed you off? For me it was last year when Modern Family beat Louie and Veep

    Jon Cryer’s Supporting Actor win over Neil Patrick Harris and Rainn Wilson. Cryer was on an awful show, not to mention committing terrible blatant category-fraud. Ironically, a few years later, I ranked him number one for his win in Lead Actor. It was far and away the funniest episode, and he was in the category he should have been in since day one. 

    The other one would have to be – and I can’t believe I’m saying this – Julia Louis-Dreyfus, winning for The New Adventures of Old Christine. You had the due factor of Jane Kaczmarek (who should have won for season two) and just the incredibleness that was/is Lisa Kudrow in The Comeback. JLD’s series-best episode would later come with “One and a Half Men.” Hilarious work, which sort of softens the blow of this win. For the record, I support her last two wins (even though I wanted Laura Dern last year, of course) and a third this year. She and her series are just that good. 

    Ellen Burstyn over Sarah Paulson. No excuses. Burstyn wasn’t even the best supporting actress of her miniseries; that honor goes to Carla Gugino. This one is really sad.

    Emmy will never be able to live that one down…

    Both of Maggie Smith’s wins for Downton Abbey, the epitome of bullshit.

    James Spader’s last Emmy win for “Boston Legal” over James Gandolfini was wrong on SO many levels. Awful win.

    Laura Linney in John Adams over Phylicia Rashad in Raisin in the Sun a few years ago in Movie/Mini. And Laura Linney again last year for The Big C.

    Michael Richards 2nd & 3rd Emmy wins (sorry Jason)

    David Hyde Pierce in 1998, only because it was over Phil Hartman. I would have loved to have seen Phil win (although that shouldn’t have been his only nomination for NewsRadio)

    Maggie Smith beating Evan Rachel Wood in Mini Series/Movie Supporting Actress. Evan was brilliant in Mildred Pearce and it just bugs me that older women tend to always win at the Emmys. Like give it to someone newer and younger for a change. The other thing that makes me mad is that Maggie Smith then switches to Drama Supporting Actress and then wins that again… meanwhile Evan doesn’t have any Emmys.

    Eric Stonestreet’s 2nd win over the likes of Ty Burrell and Max Greenfield. Terrible.

    Also, 1992 when the guest performer categories were abandoned and they submitted in lead and supporting. Christopher Lloyd won best actor in a drama series for a guest spot on Road to Avonlea over Scott Bakula and Sam Waterston (for I’ll Fly Away, not L&O).

    So true. That nomination and maybe even win belonged to Gugino. Her vs. Paulson would have been a fight.

    Also Jim Parsons over Steve Carell. Parsons did not need any before Carell won for his amazing performance in his last episode, let alone a second one.

    Maggie Smith over Christina Hendricks. That one will probably make me mad forever so its easier just not to think about it too much.

    Melissa McCarthy’s win. What an average show and performance. I have no idea how she even got nominated, much less beat Falco, Fey, and Plimpton.

    Jon Cryer’s Supporting Actor win over Neil Patrick Harris and Rainn Wilson. Cryer was on an awful show, not to mention committing terrible blatant category-fraud.

    I don’t feel an ounce of sympathy for Paulson’s loss. She was clearly the lead of that series, and she must’ve thought it was an easy win for her cheat herself to the supporting category. It was quite nice to see them choose an actual supporting performer.

    Well, regardless of whether it was category fraud for Paulson, it was clearly a lazy rubberstamp for Burstyn anyway. They couldn’t have known Paulson was lead, because they didn’t even watch the tapes.
