    This past year saw a a large exodus of series and performances from our TV screens who have yet to win Emmy Awards.

    Tell us the ones you most want to see in the running for the last (or perhaps first and only) time.

    Immediately my thought was Parks and Recreation.  It’s final season was really great and one of the better comedy seasons this year in my opinion.  Besides Amy Poehler who I believe is getting in and would be competitive for the win, I would love to see it back in Comedy Series, first nods for Nick Offerman and Chris Pratt, and writing for either Leslie and Ron or the finale.  They would all be incredibly deserved nominations coming far too late.

    The Comeback is in a similar boat for me.  It was one of the best seasons where it’s lead is the only real shot of getting recognized.  Besides Lisa Kudrow in Lead Actress, it fully deserves to be in Comedy Series and writing/directing for Valerie Gets What She Really Wants.

    I would also mention Looking but since it has the wrap-up movie coming, I guess it’s not really the last we have seen of it.

    Since the future of Jon Snow doesn’t look so bright, this would be a great time for Kit Harrington to get caught up in the GoT love and get his first deserved nomination.

    The big ones for me:

    Mad Men is the obvious one. It deserved all its previous wins in series, and I would support virtually any acting victory considering the overall quality of the cast.

    Community has always been left out of the Emmy race, despite years of hilarious work. If the 6th season gets any traction, I would be very surprised, but many of the cast members deserve recognition, namely Jim Rash and Alison Brie. I don’t realistically see it happening, but it would be deserving.

    Glee, which really went downhill as we all know, has had a standout performance for many seasons from Naya Rivera. Thanks to the new rules, she falls into the Guest Actress category and given how weak that category is, she really would deserve to win.
    And while she has won before, I will mention Archie Panjabi, who has a few really solid episodes in her final season. If they don’t go for Baranski, she would be a great alternative.

    Here’s a great reminder of all the shows we lost this past season, from the Critics’ Choice TV Awards:

    Lorraine Toussaint should follow in Margo Martindale’s footsteps as a single-season recurring guest star that wins drama supporting actress for the show’s second season.

    Ben Mendelsohn deserves drama supporting actor, although Jonathan Banks deserved it for his final season of Breaking Bad and did not get it.

    Mel Rodriguez and Lois Smith should win the drama guest categories for their late characters on Better Call Saul and The Americans.

    Nick Offerman from Parks & Recreation and Anziz Ansari from Parks & Recreation. 

    Although it is unlikely to ever happen, Naya Rivera from Glee as well.   Ditto for Darren Criss from Glee.

    Are some of these the same person?

    I find it coincidental that of the first 5 who posted, most are Glee stans. At least I can *kinda* see Rivera as she’s mildly talented, but Criss?

    The Americans.

    This last season has been their best so far. If even with the expanded nominees in drama nor the series or the lead actors get ANYTHING I guess it’ll never be on the Emmy’s radar.

    The Americans- it is at the height of it’s critical popularity. If it can’t get in now, I highly doubt it will ever get in again.

    Tatiana Maslany-After the HUGE backlash her snub recieved last year and the unexpected SAG nom, this is her best show yet

    I agree it is do or die for The Americans this season. I have it getting into drama, actor ans guest supporting actress, maybe it’s a case of wishful thinking,

    I also have this strange suspicion that perennial nominees and losers in the comedy series category, BBT and Louie may be dropped for newer comedies like grace and frankie, transparent, blackish and last man on earth. Maybe I’ve gone made.
