    The most interesting aspect of this thread is to check out which shows got Emmys in all 4 acting categories for regulars (leading and supporting both male and female). That’s a fantastic achievement!

    All in the Family
    Cheers
    Everybody Loves Raymond
    Will & Grace

    Picket Fences
    The Sopranos

    James Earl Jones and Madge Sinclair won for “Gabriel’s Fire”.

    I just realized that Mufasa and his wife were both on Gabriel’s Fire before The Lion King.

    Shows that can join this list:

    Comedies:
    Desperate Housewives — if Kathryn Joosten wins
    New Girl — if Zooey Deschanel and Max Greenfield both win
    Nurse Jackie — if Merrit Weaver wins
    The Big Bang Theory — if Mayim Bialik wins

    Dramas:
    Downton Abbey — if at least 1 of the 5 actors (Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter, Brendan Coyle, Joanne Froggatt) wins. Well, I don’t know if Maggie Smith’s win last year counts. She might win this year anyway.
    Homeland — if Damian Lewis and Claire Danes both win
    Mad Men — if at least 2 of the 4 actors (Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Moss, Jared Harris, Christina Hendricks) win

    Grey’s Anatomy (Katherine Heigl, Loretta Devine)
    Desperate Housewives (Felicity Huffman, Kathryn Joosten)
    In Treatment (Dianne Wiest, Glynn Turman)
    Law and Order: SVU (Mariska Hargitay, Amanda Plummer, Leslie Caron, Cynthia Nixon, Ellen Burstyn, Ann-Margret) 
    ER (Julianna Margulies, Sally Field, Ray Liotta)
    Monk (Tony Shalhoub, Stanley Tucci)

    Any I’m missing?

    If we were including guest acting, Monk would have three – John Turturro won in 2004.

    You could add…

    James Coco and Doris Roberts for “St. Elsewhere” (both supporting)

    Ruth Gordon for “Taxi” (lead)

    Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner and Dana Carvey for “Saturday Night Live” (again, the categories kept shuffiing titles)

    For possible future records, Breaking Bad could set the new record for all shows (guests included) if Esposito and Margolis win this year, Banks and Gunn win next year, and Norris wins the final year. That would bring their count to 7, and would tie the West Wing’s record of 4 men winning Supporting Actor.

    Ruth Gordon for “Taxi” (lead)

    Weren’t they just guests that were able to submit in either lead or supporting back then?
