    Since 1988, a total of 10 actresses have won
    Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series only once. Which do you feel gave a performance
    worthy of more than just one win?

    In between then, the multiple winners are:
    – Rhea Perlman, Cheers (4): 84, 85,
    86, and 89
    – Bebe Neuwirth, Cheers (2): 90 and
    91
    – Laurie Metcalf, Roseanne (3): 92,
    93, and 94
    – Kristen Johnston, 3rd Rock
    From the Sun
    (2): 97 and 99
    – Megan Mullally, Will & Grace
    (2): 00 and 06
    – Doris Roberts, Everybody Loves Raymond
    (4): 01, 02, 03, and 05
    – Julie Bowen, Modern Family (2): 11
    and 12
    – Allison Janney, Mom (2): 14 and 15

    Before winning her fourth for Cheers,
    Rhea Perlman lost to Jackee Harry (227)
    and Estelle Getty (The Golden Girls).
    The only reason Harry isn’t on the poll is because there aren’t 11 spots. Getty
    gets the last. The track-record for the last 10 ladies who only won once is…

    Estelle Getty, The Golden Girls
    – 7 total noms/1 win in 88.
    – Lost in 86 to Rhea Perlman (Cheers);  in 87 to Jackee Harry (227);  in 89 to Perlman; in
    90 and 91 to Bebe Neuwirth (Cheers);
    and in 92 to Laurie Metcalf (Roseanne).

    Christine Baranski, Cybil
    – 4 total noms/1 win in 95.
    – Lost in 96 to Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld);
    in 97 to Kristen Johnston (3rd
    Rock From the Sun
    ); and in 98 to Lisa Kudrow (Friends).

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Seinfeld
    – 7 total noms/1 win in 96.
    – Lost in 92-94 to Metcalf; in 95 to Baranski; in 97 to Johnston; and in 98 to
    Kudrow.

    Lisa Kudrow, Friends
    – 6 total noms/1 win in 98.
    – Lost in 95 to to Baranski; was not nominated in 96 (when Louis-Dreyfus won);
    lost in 97 and 99 to Johnston; in 2000 to Megan Mullally (Will & Grace); and 2001 to Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond).

    Cynthia Nixon, Sex and the City
    – 3 total noms/1 win in 04.
    – Lost in 02 and 03 to Roberts.

    Jaime Pressly, My Name is Earl
    – 2 total noms/1 win in 07.
    – Lost in 06 to Mullally.

    Jean Smart, Samantha Who
    – 1 nom/win in 08.
    – She was not nominated for the second season in 09 (when Kristin Chenoweth won
    for Pushing Daisies).

    Kristin Chenoweth, Pushing Daisies
    – 2 total noms/1 win in 09.
    – Lost in 08 to Smart.

    Jane Lynch, Glee
    – 3 total noms/1 win in 10.
    – Lost in 11 to Julie Bowen (Modern
    Family
    ); was not nominated in 12 (when Bowen repeated); and lost in 13 to
    Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie).

    Merritt Wever, Nurse Jackie
    – 2 total noms/1 win in 13.
    – Lost in 12 to Bowen.
     
    Since Getty’s win in 88, there have been 23 actresses in this category that
    received at least two or more nominations for their role yet still never win
    (with the exception of one who would later win in Lead): – Julia Duffy (7 for Newhart), Kim Cattrall (5 for Sex and the City), Faith Ford (5 for Murphy Brown), Mayim Bialik (4 for The Big Bang Theory – More potential
    noms), Jane Krakowski (4 for 30 Rock),
    Sofia Vergara (4 for Modern Family), Kristen
    Wiig (4 for SNL), Holland Taylor (4
    for Two and a Half Men), Anna
    Chlumsky (3 for Veep – More potential
    noms), Kate McKinnon (2 for SNL
    More potential noms), Vanessa Williams (3 for Ugly Betty), Elizabeth Perkins (3 for Weeds), Amy Poehler (2 for SNL),
    Conchata Ferrell (2 for Two and a Half
    Men
    ), Cheryl Hines (2 for Curb Your
    Enthusiasm
    ), Wendie Malick (2 for Just
    Shoot Me!
    ), Jennifer Aniston (she lost twice in Supporting for Friends in 00 and 01, then won Lead in
    02), Janeane Garofalo (2 for The Larry
    Sanders Show
    ), Liz Torres (2 for The
    John Larroquette Show
    ), Sara Gilbert (2 for Roseanne), Shelley Fabares (2 for Coach), Frances Sternhagen (2 for Cheers), and Katherine Helmond (2 for Who’s the Boss?).                    

    When taking into consideration the 22 actresses who lost for that particular
    role (not to mention the greats who only garnered a single nomination, ahem
    Jessica Walter), it makes it easier to digest that the 10 in the poll got it at
    least once.

    My vote goes to Estelle Getty. I just cannot believe that she only has one for The Golden Girls. Emmy voters opted to give Rhea Perlman a fourth and Bebe Neuwirth a second before Getty got a second. Equally confusing is that 17 years later, Doris Roberts won her fourth for Everybody Loves Raymond, a role extremely similar to Getty’s. 

    Side-note: When pulling all of this info, I realized for the first time that when JLD won in 96, Kudrow wasn’t nominated. Kudrow had been nominated the year before, was dropped in 96, welcomed back but lost in 97, then finally won in 98. All this time I thought JLD had beaten Kudrow for three roles, but it turns out she’s only beaten her for two roles. It’s still Bening/Swank’esque, but not as bad.

    The obvious answer is Julia Louis Dreyfus. Of course this is my answer because I wouldn’t have known back then that she would end up winning 5 more Emmys for Christine and Veep. But Elaine Bennes deserves more than 1 Emmy. If I have to take somebody’s Emmy I would say Laurie Metcalf because I haven’t watched Roseanne, she has 3 Emmys for that role anyway and she only has herself to blame for not having a 4th Emmy for Desperate Housewives. I don’t want Kudrow, Baranski or Johnston’s 1st win to go away.

    If choosing somebody who ended up with 5 other Emmys anyway doesn’t count, then I’ll choose Lisa Kudrow. She was a very worthy winner in 1999 against Johnston (who was also a worthy winner).

    Jane Lynch or Lisa Kudrow for me. I would say Kudrow’s work across Friends was far more impressive than Lynch’s yet she faced much stronger competition in my opinion and so her losses were more understandable. Lynch on ths other hand for me should’ve won 3 emmys for her role on Glee. I am still one of the rare few who thinks she that she should’ve won for season 4 particularly given that Merritt Wever won that year and I thought Lynch’s tape that year was brilliant. Her third win for me would actually have been for the most recent season, which I still think it is disappointing that she wasn’t nominated for, although a loss here would’ve been more understandable due to being against Janney.

    The correct answer requires going beyond the limited time frame of the poll. Vivian Vance was brilliant as Ethel Mertz. It is criminal that she only received one Emmy for I Love Lucy.

    If we’re not taking into consideration the fact that JLD went to become one of the biggest Emmy acting winners after her Seinfeld run, it is kind of criminal that Elaine Benes only gave her one trophy. There are few characters on the comedy side that are as impactful and timeless as hers, and she was consistenly the best actor on the show. But then again, Seinfeld only won Series once.

    But otherwise, I think Lisa Kudrow needed another win in 1999. Her submissions are still one fo the best combos to date in this category, her character is another timeless, impactful one, and Kudrow was the best part of Friends.

    This was another big problem with the old panel system – they couldn’t even get their repeat winners right!

    JLD should have one of Metcalf’s, and Kudrow takes Johnston’s second.

    I don’t agree Marie was like Sofia. Marie was a much bigger role.

    Elaine Benes is still the gold standard for Supporting Actress in a Comedy.

    Its ridiculous to think that some iconic characters only won once:

    Julia Louis Dreyfus should basically have the record of wins in this category for Seinfeld. She deserved at the very east 3 wins out of those 7 years she contended. At least.

    Lisa Kudrow also deserved multiple wins for Friends.

    You may disagree with me and that’s ok (everyone has the right to be wrong hahaha) but the definitive Match Game answer is Estelle Getty. How she, and the other Golden Girls, only ended up with 1 Emmy each is astonishing. Bea deserved 2 or 3, but I am a Dorothy in real life so I may be biased 🙂
