    Anjelica Huston has a good chance of winning her first Emmy next year for her guest stint on the second season of Transparent.

    Kevin Spacey has never won an Emmy. He has 8 nominations: 3 for Lead Actor in a Drama Series (House of Cards), 1 for Lead Actor in a TV Movie/Mini-Series (Recount), and 4 for producing (3 for House of Cards and 1 for Bernard and Doris).

    There’s also the four years he voiced the title character on Duckman, although the voiceover award was juried at the time so he couldn’t be “nominated” for it; I only mention it because, in 1996, rather than give it to him, they decided not to give it to anybody.  Then again, this makes the assumption that he even submitted himself in this category.

    * Cybill Shepherd has lost the Emmy 4 times, once for starring on Moonlighting and another 3x as star of Cybill
    Not to mention 1987, when Bruce Willis won for Moonlighting – and Cybill wasn’t even nominated.

    How about somebody winning an Emmy early in their career, then having a string of nominations without a win?  For example, Susan Saint James won one for The Name of the Game in 1969, then got seven nominations (four for McMillan & Wife, and three for Kate & Allie) without a win.

    Sandra Oh has lost 5 times for Grey’s Anatomy. Hopefully one day she will do a guest spot and win there.

    Don’t forget Christine Baranski. Won her very first for “Cybil” in 95, followed by 13 losses: Three for “Cybil” (96-98), one for “Frasier” (99), three for “The Big Bang Theory” (09-10, 15), and six for “The Good Wife” (10-15).

    As far as whose “time” it feels, I would go with Kevin Spacey. It will be his fourth nomination for “House of Cards,” and his ninth overall (tenth if the show gets back in Series).

    Series regulars that get shut-out, but then win as guest, producer, or a miniseries actor, seems very “lifetime achievement award” to me.

    I was happy to hear that Carell did not submit himself for guest in the finale. You had your chance to do the right thing, and you blew it.

    Hopefully one day she will STAR IN HER OWN SHOW. She’s one of the best actresses out there, she deserves a show on her own! 🙂

    Victor Garber has 6 nominations without a win (3x Alias, 2 Guest Comedy for Will & Grace and Frasier, Sup Actor for the Judy Garland movie), all of them from 2001 to 2005 (twice in 2001). It’s been 10 years, but he seems like somebody who could get a win in the guest categories either as a deserved winner or one of the more recent “surprise! you’ve never won before” winners we’ve seen lately.

    Larry David won twice in 1992 as writer and producer for Seinfeld. He’s been nominated 17 times since without a win. People who already have two Emmys shouldn’t really qualify here, but like Baranski, he kept getting nominated. And he has deserved at least an acting win for Curb (over Gervais).

    I CONSTANTLY check her IMDB to see if their is anything new coming up in her career. Ruth Wilson is fantastic in the Affair, but Sandra Oh would tear that up! Maybe in some lifetime her and Alexander Payne will get back together, and he can write her a new television show.

    Blair Brown (5)

    I’m curious where Brown will land at the 2017 Emmys for “Orange is the New Black,” considering how much material she will get in the next season. Even though she was in five episodes of this past season, she has nothing to merit submission, plus it isn’t until **mild spoilers** the season 3 finale that we see her character joining Litchfield, so hopefully that will give her some meaty material
