    In either of the genres (comedy or drama), which show has a deserving winner in each of its 6 acting categories (male/female lead, supporting and guest)? Name the show and its 6 performances.

    None. No show airing right now actually deserves to win it all. And only a few would qualify to get all nominations. Black-ish comes to mind.

    Carrie Coon for Actress
    Christopher Eccelston for Supporting Actor
    Regina King for Supporting Actress

    Even though there aren’t guest acting categories in movie/mini, I would have no problem with Fargo winning all four acting awards with Wilson, Dunst, Smart, and Plemmons or Woodbine

    I love The Affair, but nothing Ruth Wilson has done on season 2 deserves recognition of any sort.

    I think The Leftovers and The Affair are excellent suggestions and I wouldn’t be angry to see House of Cards pull it out.

    I imagine if HBO had the balls to put Harrington and Clarke as leads, Game of Thrones would be a justifiable candidate, too.

    I could build a case for Penny Dreadful, too, but I feel like I’m going in circle on different threads bringing up the same 3 or 4 shows LOL

    No show fits perfectly, so I will add Horace and Pete to the mix as a show that deserves to win multiple acting Emmys this season.

    I’d say The Leftovers and Fargo should, absolutely.

    The Leftovers and Black-ish first came to my mind.

    If we are going based solely on personal nominees all around I wouldn’t give any single show every acting win, actually the only show I would personally give two acting wins is Fargo (Dunst and Smart). If it is a case of adding in performers from non-factor shows competing with typical nominees I would consider multiple wins for The Americans, The Leftovers, Horace and Pete, Lady Dynamite, and UnReal with The Americans maxing out with 3 wins for Rhys, Russell, and Wright, with consideration for Mahendru for Guest Actress. Short answer, a good number of shows deserve multiple nominees, but none deserve to win as many as 6.
