    Can’t believe Bill Maher has finally won Emmy after his “only” 33rd try. 
    Congatulations on something that should have happened ages ago, sir! 

    So, who is now holds the title as the biggest Emmy Awards loser? Is is it Dame Angela Lansbury, who holds the record for the biggest amount of Emmy Awards nominations without ever winning among performers? She lost 18 times.

    Gah, if she could just deliver one more great performance, I’m almost positive she would have the same Emmy record as Susan Lucci when she finally one (1-19; and now Lucci is 1-21). That would definitely mean 19 times is the charm, haha.

    Others with 12+:
    Jon Hamm 13
    Amy Poehler 12 

    But I only really pay attention to actors, and I’m only really up on recent ones, so who else is there?

    Morgan, she just need to do a nice voice-over.
    Or be a producer in a informational series… If Arnold Schwazenegger is now a EMMY winner, she can do the same too

    Ha yeah, there’s something sad about this: 

    – Arnold Schwarzenegger – 1-1
    – Angela Lansbury – 0-18

    If one of her stage shows were adapted for television, she would be a lock for the win. Everybody knows about her streak! Maybe NBC can cast her for one of their live musicals.

    Nathan Lane has 2 Daytime Emmys (if you count them).

    Don’t forget 0 for 5ers Sanra Oh, Chandra Wilson, Veronica Hamel, Faith Ford, and soon to be Christina Hendricks.

    And of course 0 for 6 Elisabeth Moss. And Ed Begley Jr.

    And most tragic, 0 for 8 Jason Alexander.  Oy.

    The stage recording of Driving Miss Daisy starring
    Dame Angela and James Earl Jones will air on PBS later this year. Unfortunately
    it won’t be eligible for Emmy consideration because it was released in cinemas
    on over 500 screens this June.


    She’s one of biggest box office draws when it
    comes to theatre, but for some reason Dame Angela can’t land a decent
    TV of film role. Producers are just not interested. The roles she could’ve
    played are going to Ellen Burstyn, Shirley
    MacLaine, Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, Vanessa Redgrave, etc. That’s a shame becouse she’s just as good as any of them, if not better.

    BBC and HBO’s another collaboration should be TV adaptation of “Blithe Spirit”. That would get her that overdue Emmy.

    I can’t believe “Mad Men” won 4 Best Drama Series and not a single acting Emmy. That’s pretty impossible yet it happened. Both Hamm and Hendricks have gone from frontrunners to… people who would provide Merritt Wever kind of shock if they won. Next year is their final chance but with Moss and Slattery dropped and Bertram Cooper not securing an Emmy even with his death, it’s over.
