It feels like the Oscars have taken big steps in recent years to make amends to overdue performers, like Julianne Moore and Leonardo DiCaprio. The Emmys should follow suit. So who’s at the top of your list of TV’s most overdue actors and actresses?August 22, 2016 at 7:33 pm #1201911978
Angela Lansbury, Sarah Paulson, Steve Carell, Jane Krakowski, Amy Poehler and Kevin Spacey come to mind.August 22, 2016 at 7:51 pm #1201911986

Angela Lansbury and Amy PoehlerAugust 23, 2016 at 5:42 am #1201912153
I’m not surprised at the multiple mentions for Sarah Paulson, but, for the men, I should add equally overlooked in longform Brian Dennehy, who is also 0 for 6, as well as 0 for 7 Hal Linden and Michael C. Hall and 0 for 8 Jason Alexander.August 23, 2016 at 6:26 am #1201912159
Angela Lansbury and Bill Maher are the most overdue as they are either close to the top in Emmy losses or hold the records. Amy Poehler I believe is on her 18th nomination this year (acting, writing, producing, directing). I didn’t realize that Dennehy was 0 for 6. Marla Gibbs and Julia Duffy were victims of Emmy loving repeat winners, especially in the supporting category. Faith Ford also went 0 for 5. Jason Alexander’s shutout is unforgiveable seeing that Michael Richards won 3 for Seinfeld. To me, that is overdue. Also, Phylicia Rashad should have won over Laura Linney for Lead Actress in a Movie/Miniseries, but got shut out due to that HBO/John Adams sweep. Still surprised she only had 2 noms for The Cosby Show, but Emmy voters loved Blair Brown in The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd didn’t they!
Then you have non-nominees like Courteney Cox, Lauren Graham, and Kelly Bishop who are overdue for even an Emmy nomination.
I do love Sarah Paulson, but I (personally) wouldn’t call her overdue. Before this year, she had 4 nominations over 4 years. That doesn’t rise to overdue for me, plus she’s favored to win this year.

Bill Maher won an Emmy for producing the informational series Vice.
Good, I’m not a fan of his, but I’m less a fan of “Martyr Maher” haha. But he had been nominated about a thousand times (give or take a few).
Who’s the biggest male Emmy loser now?August 23, 2016 at 7:33 am #1201912174
As far as I can tell, those men with the most nominations that include performance nominations and no wins are Steve Carell, Keegan-Michael Key, Paul Reiser, and Kevin Spacey, all with 10 total nominations, and Hugh Laurie is right behind with 9, but I think that Jason Alexander and Don Cheadle have the most performance nominations with no wins for men at 8.
