    Offerman continues to get snubbed, even though fans and critics believe that he should at least be nominated.

    Who were some actors in previous years that could not get nominated multiple years, even though the majority of the public felt they should have been?

    The first one that comes to mind is Sarah Michelle Gellar for Buffy.

    Does Courteney Cox apply here? It’s bizarre she was never nominated for Friends.

    I always see the Courteney Cox talk and I just don’t get it.. she was easily the worst actor of the show.

    Her character became more of a caricature in later seasons but in the early ones she was really great. She and Matthew Perry in S5 were great.

    Totally with you on Lauren Graham.

    Nick Offerman is a Lauren Graham.

    I always thought that David Schwimmer was the worst actor on the show.

    I genuinely thought that Schwimmer brought a really gentle sweetness to Ross in the first few seasons of the show, but, like Cox, was forced to become a lot broader in his delivery as the writing took away some of his character’s dimension. I will grant that he probably had less range than most others in the cast, though.

    But yeah, I think John Noble is probably a perfect example, given that Facebook campaign that fans ran for him.

    Walton Goggins could probably be included for his work on The Shield, though that might be more just for its final season.

    Would William Peterson have counted in CSI’s early years?

    Speaking of Friends, I find it unfortunate that Matthew Perry had to wait until Season 8 to get a nomination for his work as Chandler. He really would’ve made a great Supporting nominee in the early years (even considering his incredible competition), and it would’ve been really satisfying to see him get in for Season 5 (when Larry Sanders and Seinfeld ended their runs).

    Peterson was great! Without him there would have been no SAG ensemble for Acting in a Drama! He did get some GG nominations but  he wasn’t a critical favorite but certainly deserved a nomination as much if not moreso than Marg Helgenberge who got 2! Maybe because he was so anti-Hollywood! When Marg was a real part of the club! No one deserved a nomination more than he did when he submitted Butterflied! I think he submitted that. But while Marg was good the SAG ensemble owed a lot to him!

    John Noble instantly comes to mind.

    For me, Dixie Carter from Designing Women comes to mind. Each year, she was given an episode that could have easily beat all of the nominees, yet she was consistently left out of the nominations.

    ^THIS

    I don’t get why she was snubbed. Maybe voters thought she was just playing a variation of herself, but it didn’t stop them from nominating Delta Burke twice (Burke’s last nod is odd because she barely had any screentime that year due to backstage fueds w/ the producers and Carter; it would have been the perfect oppertunity to nominate Carter).

    Don’t forget Annie Potts and especially Jean Smart.

    Somebody correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t one of the reasons for having the “second round of nominations” for a few years the fact that Kristen Bell got snubbed for Veronica Mars?  (Did she ever even make it into the second round?)

    I guess Vincent Kartheiser could be a slightly more minor example for his work on Mad Men. It took until Season 5 for me to really want to nominate him, but there were certainly others who thought he was deserving beforehand.
