    With 6 acting nominations this year, The Good Wife becomes the most popular drama show among actors not to get an accompanying series nod. Will & Grace (2006) and Mad About You (1998) are the only other shows (both of which are comedies) to score 6 acting nods without a series nod.

    Well, none of the snubbed dramas got 4 main acting noms. The Waltons twice missed with 4 including a Single Appearance/Single Performance nom.

    Interesting how both Will and Grace and Mad About You scored two acting wins that year.

    Will The Good Wife follow suit? If ever it did, who do you think has the biggest chance of winning? I’d say Supporting Actress for Baranski and Guest Actor.

    Michael J. Fox, I think, stands a better chance for winning for Curb Your Enthusiasm…

    Plenty of shows have been nominated for series without any acting nominations. Here are some from the last 25 years (there may be more):

    The Wonder Years (1988, 1991)
    Home Improvement
    (1992)
    Star Trek: The Next Generation
    (1994)
    Law & Order
    (1995*, 1996, 2001)
    Curb Your Enthusiasm
    (2002)
    C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation (2002, 2004)
    House (2006)
    Scrubs (2006*)
    Big Love (2009*)
    True Blood (2010)

    Asterisk means they had no other nominations in any category besides series.

    Of this list, the only one that won was Wonder Years ’88 (and I believe that win was considered a shocking upset at the time).

    Don’t forget The Flintstones (1961) – which received no other nominations.

    And technically Family Guy (2009) – which earned a voice-over nod, but no official acting categories…

    But most of the dramas listed above have/had either a lead actor or lead actress, not both. They couldn’t contend in four main acting categories to begin with.
