    Thinking over the situation behind Julianna Margulies, I’m wondering if she can really get back into the race after snubbed last year. Others have done it. I can think of two — Holland Taylor and Jane Krakowski are examples of stars who got nommed, then got snubbed, but then rallied and got nominated again. What other examples can you think of?

    Ditto for programs. Yes, “Lost” lost out on a nomination one  year after winning Best Drama Series, then rallied and returned to the race.

    We’re not counting shows like Six Feet Under or 24 that skipped years and returned — those are cases where the series didn’t  have eligible episodes, so they weren’t really snubbed in the gap years.

    What are more examples of truly snubbed shows and stars who managed to rally and return to the derby?

    Didn’t Hugh Laurie miss out in 2006 or something and comeback for the follow six years or something?  No win, though.

    The fact that Hugh Laurie never won for House is sad to say the least.

    2006 was pretty weird, given how different the nominating system went. James Gandolfini and Edie Falco were similarly overlooked for The Sopranos, before coming back for show’s final run of episodes in 2007. Also, Lorraine Bracco was nominated for the first 3 seasons in Lead Actress and then for the final season in Supporting Actress. Not sure how she was campaigned all the years in between. 

    That 2006 snafu also forced James Spader off the nomination list, and he of course came back to win in 2007.

    Also, Kelsey Grammer missed out one time for Frasier in the show’s entire run – for the tenth season in 2003. Then, for the show’s final season, he came back and won the Emmy

    Peter Krause was nominated for every year of Six Feet Under’s run except for the fourth season, I believe.  

    I also think that Jeffrey Tambor was nominated for the first season of The Larry Sanders Show in Supporting Actor, then overlooked for 2 seasons (where Rip Torn was the sole nominee), and then made it back in for the rest of the show’s run.  

    Brad Garrett was another victorious case. After he was nominated for Everybody Loves Raymond in 2000, he got snubbed in 2001. In 2002, he went on to win for the “Lucky Suit” episode, and repeated wins in 2 succeeding years.  

    Andre Braugher was nominated in 1996 for his work on Homicide: Life on the Street. He lost out to Dennis Franz that year, and was not nominated in 1997. However, for his final season on the show in 1998, he managed to eek out a win.  

    Speaking of Dennis Franz, his NYPD Blue co-star Gordon Clapp was nominated in 1994 for the show’s inaugural season. It seemed that enthusiasm for his performance died down after that, as he wasn’t nominated for the second or third seasons. Then came Season 4 (1998), where he managed to take Emmy gold.

    Wendie Malick for “Just Shoot Me,” Aida Turturro for “Sopranos,” Candice Bergen for “Boston Legal” (don’t quote me) and John Mahoney for “Frasier” spring to mind. I would like to see it happen for Sandra Oh this year, but I am not seeing a real push. Depending on the strength of Lead Comedy, I could see Johnny Galecki coming back. I am purposefully excluding anyone snubbed by the 06 chicanery. That’s just not a directly comparable situation.

    Edie Falco and James Gandolfini in 2006. I remember that being shocking because they were considred untouchable. They came back for the show’s final year of eligibility when the show was showered with many nominations. That is why I feel a similar situation could happen to “Mad Men” this year with the show and the actors. Both shows did/are doing the split final seasons. While the wonky voting season was to blame for Edie and James (and among others) shocking snubs, fierce competition in this great era of television will be the reason for “Mad Men”‘s potential snubs. And if this scenario plays out, they’ll sit out this year, but will be given a grand send off next year (with possible first time nominations for Vincent Kartheiser and Kiernan Shipka being a strong possibility if the love is strong).

    Yeah, but the 2006 voting system is completely different from the current one.

    If they reverted back to it, we would probably see crazy snubs once again…

    Does Terry O’Quinn count for Lost’s 3rd season? I know that after he actually won in 2007, he stopped submitting until Season 6 (where he was nominated again), but I’m not sure if he simply was overlooked for Season 2 or not. If he was, that would also make him an example.

    Lisa Kudrow was nominated for Supporting Actress for the first season of Friends, snubbed for the second, and then nominated five more times (winning once) until 2002, at which point the entire cast moved to the Lead categories

    Great call.  I’m not saying he would have won but he had a KILLER tape that season.

    2005 and 2007

     

    Jane Lynch is a recent example. She won in 2010, nominated again in 2011, snubbed in 2012, and returned with a nomination in 2013.

    Wow, there are so many of these!

    After reading this, I’m convinced that Julianna Margulies is coming back. Possibly Josh Charles too. Both could actually even WIN after their recent snubs.

    Debra Messing and Eric McCormack for Will & Grace, though I forget what years.

    Also, Felicity Huffman for Desperate Housewives, though that would fall under the horrible tape system.
