    The Emmy’s are very good with noticing great performances, especially those in comedy. The fact that David Hyde Pierce won FOUR Emmys for Frasier is really a cool fact.

    However, sometimes the Emmys latch onto a particular performance or two and fail to neglect other more superior performances from the same show.

    For example, Peri Gilpin was one of the funniest aspects of Frasier, but she never received a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

    It can be quite sad as some of the greatest TV performances are going unrecognized while “bigger stars” are receiving all the awards.

    For example:

    3rd Rock From the Sun
    One of the most hilarious shows of all time. It won John Lithgow three Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series awards, and Kristen Johnston two Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Both were very deserving.
    However, two actors from this show went unrecognized. French Stewart played Harry Solomon and some of the show’s biggest laughs came from him. Like Kramer in Seinfeld, he was the character actor who played a memorable role and then faded into obscurity. The difference between Stewart and Michael Richards is that Richards won three Emmys, whereas Stewart wasn’t even nominated for one. The arc when Harry works for a travelling carnival was very deserving of an Emmy.
    The other is Jane Curtin, who played Dr. Mary Albright. Curtin, an original SNL castmember, won two Emmys in the 1980s for Kate and Allie. Her role in 3rd Rock from the Sun was deserving of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series nominations (she was arguably lead) and deserved to win over the overrated Helen Hunt who won FOUR times.

    Neal McDonough got snubbed last year for Justified. He had aguably the best supporting performance of the year, and should have been nominated for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Also, Vincent Karthesier has been snubbed five times for Mad Men. John Slattery got nominated four consecutive times until 2012, and Jared Harris was nominated last year. Why has Karthesier been snubbed? Probably because his character is a douchebag. Also, some say that he hasn’t been nominated because he is not as well-known as the other nominees.

    in my humble opinion mcdonough was overshadowed by mykelti williamson and of course the criminally underappreciated walton goggins. both of those men should have been nominated over him in supporting last year if anything. and i think vincent kartheiser is the most overrated person on these boards and many others by fans of mad men. john slatterys performance and especially harris last year wipe the floor with him. and it has nothing to do with him being a douchebag, i just dont care for his performance or his acting.

    Not saying that they all would have been my picks to earn nominations, but here are some notable actors and actresses who failed to reap the benefits when their shows began to pick up steam with the Emmy voters.

     
    COMEDY 
    Desi Arnaz, I Love Lucy
    Courteney Cox, Friends (only cast member not to receive a nomination)
    David Cross, Arrested Development 
    Andy Griffith, The Andy Griffith Show (notably, both Don Knotts and Frances Baviar each won Emmys) 
    John Krasinski, The Office
    Gavin MacLeod, The Mary Tyler Moore Show (the *only* member of the main cast to never receive a nomination in the show’s 7 years. Even later recruits, like Georgia Engel and Betty White, received nominations/wins)
    John C. McGuinley, Scrubs 
    Bob Newhart, The Bob Newhart Show 
    Chris Noth, Sex and the City 
    Nick Offerman, Parks and Recreation 

    DRAMA
    Patrick Dempsey, Grey’s Anatomy 
    Lisa Edelstein, House 
    Dennis Haysbert, 24 
    Josh Holloway, Lost 
    Robert Sean Leonard, House 
    Chris Noth, The Good Wife/Law & Order 
    William Peterson, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation 
    Ellen Pompeo, Grey’s Anatomy 
    Chloe Sevigny, Big Love  (“love” may be a strong word, but the show did receive a Drama Series nomination)
    Kelli Williams, The Practice

    Also. Zach Gilford for Guest Actor in a Drama Series for Friday Night Lights. His amazing performance in “The Son” could have beaten Lithgow’s performance in “Road Kill” easily.

    I didn’t mean that Slattery’s and Harris’ performances didn’t deserve to be nominated (IMO, Harris should have won last year). I meant that Karthesier should have been nominated at least once, especially for his best season, Season Five. Him and Slattery should have been nominated over the DA men Coyle and Carter.

    I was thinking about Peri Gilpin’s situation these days. I recently got hooked into Frasier and Roz is my favorite character. Does anyone know why she never got a nomination? I mean, on season 5 she had a big arc and a lot of screentime. It’s sad, she’s the only of the main cast who never got a nod.

    Courteney Cox is another one that always come to my mind when we talk about snubbed actors.

    And thinking on the other way around, what performances were overrated due to emmy love for the show? I mean, did Jerry Seinfeld really deserved to be nominated as Best Lead Actor?

    i really don’t think MF’s performances are over-rated. Not in general, at least. I could see Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sofia Vergara, and Ed O’Neill falling out of the categories because their performaces aren’t as Emmy Worthy (still great, just not as shining as the other cast members). But overall, MF has some of the best comedy performances on television and deserves to be nominated. Maybe not every year like it has been, but Burrell, Bowen, Stonestreet definitiely deserve their consistent noms, in my opinion.

    Stonestreet and Vergara ARE FAR from being worthy nominee since season 2. O’Neill is somehow weak

    I can only stand for the Dunphy’s nomination and the last nomination of Fergunson.
