    We used to have a forum thread on this topic, but I couldn’t find it, so let’s start another.

    I will never, ever, ever recover from Jon Hamm’s loss for “The Suitcase” episode of “Mad Men.” UNFORGIVABLE! Especially since it went to Kyle Chandler, who gave a very understated performance in the final eppy of “Friday Night Lights.” Hell, Chandler’s costar Connie Britton was far more impressive in her perf in that same eppy.

    Lisa Kudrow for Friends Season 5. I mean her episode submissions “The One Hundredth” and “The One Where Everybody Finds Out” saw her give outstanding comedic performances yet somehow she lost to Kristen Johnston. I’ll never understand.

    Both Phylicia Rashad and Audra McDonald for “A Raisin In the Sun,” equally.

    Steve Carell for “Goodbye, Michael” from The Office. Jim Parsons always submitted good material, but Carell hit all the marks in his final episode. Very shocked he didn’t win.

    Steve Carell for Michael’s Goodbye (or any of them really)
    Christina Hendricks for The Other Woman
    Amy Poehler for Win, Lose, Draw (or any of them really)
    Lena Headey not even being nominated when she had Blackwater
    Kerry Washington never winning of Scandal
    Bellamy Young not even being nominated for season 3 of Scandal

    Well based on my post in my thread that still seems somewhat inaccessible (http://www.goldderby.com/forum/television/21st-century-nominees-dream-ballot/#post-1201903624), by category:

    Series Game of Thrones beating Mad Men’s last season
    Writing Game of Thrones beating Mad Men’s last season
    Directing Modern Family beating 30 Rock’s last season
    Actress Laura Linney beating Elisabeth Moss (followed by Julianna Margulies beating Elisabeth Moss)
    Actor Damian Lewis beating Jon Hamm
    Supporting Actress Katherine Heigl beating Sandra Oh (followed by Doris Roberts beating Kim Cattrall three times)
    Supporting Actor Aaron Paul beating John Slattery or Aaron Paul beating Jared Harris
    Guest Actress Kate Winslet losing to Cloris Leachman
    Guest Actor Justin Timberlake beating multiple 30 Rock actors or Justin Timberlake beating multiple 30 Rock actors…I’ll say the second is worse as everyone in the first is currently an Emmy winner.

    Moss, Oh, and Cattrall are the worst losses overall.

    Hugh Laurie losing for “Broken.” It was his best shot, but he lost to Cranston.

    James Gandolfini losing for “The Second Coming,” which I thought was even stronger than Whitecaps.

    Everyone in the supporting actor race that lost to Jon Cryer.

    Jesse Tyler Ferguson losing for “Message Received.”

    John Goodman never winning for Roseanne. Even though some of his tapes sucked, he deserved at least one win.

    How Lorraine Bracco didn’t win for Employee of the Month is beyond me. Criminal.

    Christina Hendrics was sublime in The Other Woman and should have won that award.

    Amy Poehler not winning for Emergency Response and Leslie and Ben makes no sense, she should have been unbeatable that year.

    Giancarlo Esposito for Hermanos (and season 4, in general)

    The first season of Fargo failing to win a single acting award and losing writing to Sherlock: His Last Vow.

    Also, TMNT: The Manhattan Project, the Futurama series finale, and South Park “the Black Friday trilogy” losing to Bob’s Burgers for Animated Program.

    Jesse Tyler Ferguson losing for Message Recieved to his already Emmy-winning costar Ty Burrell.

    Johnathan Banks “Five-O”, Ben Mendohlsohn, AND Michael Kelly losing to Peter Dinklage!

    Disney’s Mickey Mouse winning ANYTHING, especially the first time it won Program, beating out one of Adventure Time’s best episodes ever, “Simon and Marcy”. That one really hurt.

    True Detective S1 was very well directed, but there’s no way Fukunaga should have won over the Breaking Bad series finale and especially “The Watchers on the Wall” from Game of Thrones, the latter of which I consider one of the greatest, certainly best directed, episodes of Television history.

    I still can’t believe Margo Martindale’s 2 minute Americans cameo beat out spectacular performances from Rachel Brosnahan, Cicely Tyson, and Diana Rigg. Seriously, mere “laziness” doesn’t even begin to describe that kind of insane bullshit!!!

    30 Rock NEVER winning a single directing Emmy.

    Malcolm In The Middle losing to freaking Sex and the City. That one was so stupid it’s actually insulting.

    Tituss Burgess losing to anyone for his “Pinot noir” episode. Tituss was robbed! Ironically, this year I’m hoping Tony Hale wins the Emmy, seeing as how he actually has the best episode submission this time.

    There are so many but Modern Family losing to Veep last year, just before they broke the record is what hurts the most. Especially considering Veep’s 4th season was average at best.

    I mean…it’s one of only 2 shows to get to 5. I doubt the people on the show found it tragic.
    Its sole win for Sound Mixing was probably an indication it wasn’t that close.

    Yeah no I don’t think they have a problem with losing, since they kept repeating they were expecting at some point it is just the fanboy in me. Yeah I guess it wasn’t close and won’t ever be close again (unless they go really sentimental on its last season?)
