    G’Day, with Hugh Laurie missing out on a nomination this year we see the great tv character Dr. House enter the pantheon of great Emmy-less characters.

    So who else is in that club? Which great tv characters have gone their whole run without ever taking an Emmy award home?

    Rather than just a list of fan favourites, let’s try to think of those that perhaps at least got a nomination for an Emmy or were hugely popular iconic figures. Also don’t count in a Don Draper or Dexter Morgan who could still win an emmy award.

    Steve Carell and Jason Alexander never won for playing Michael Scott and George Costanza, two iconic comedy characters.

    Kristen Bell, Veronica Mars, Heroes, Party Down (hopefully House of Lies won’t make it an un-grand slam)

    Even though Jane Kaczmarek got tons of nominations, I don’t really think she should have ever won. Her performance has always been so one note.

    I second the mentions of Frances Conroy and Jennifer Garner. One of Allison Janney’s and Edie Falco’s respective Emmys should be sitting on the mantlepiece in the homes of Conroy and Garner.

    Hagman has recieved good reviews but it’s considered so slight. Two nominees for supporting actor are from Breaking Bad. Emmy voters just want just extreme drama and self serious drama and while Hagman is good I doubt if its really considered serious enough acting for a drama emmy nomination.

    Marcia Cross – “Desperate Housewives” (1 nomination in 2005)

    Worthy of a win in 2005, but Felicity Huffman is terrific and was deserving of her win so I’m cool with that. At the least, Marcia should have been nominated again in 2006 for what was again a standout season for her. She would’ve made a worthy winner that year as well. However, there was the “Desperate Housewives” backlash and the tape system that year for nominations.

    I recall Tom O’Neill mentioning in a write up that the “Housewives” actresses had no one to blame but themselves for their screwed up tape submissions. Not verbatim what he said, but something to that effect.

    Season 8 was also a terrific season for Marcia but there are so many worthy actresses these days that a nomination wasn’t going to happen. I guess she was being realistic as she didn’t even submit her name for nomination consideration this year.

    Yeah, FNLFan! Good call. 

    George Wendt, Cheers — 6 noms

    I like this one, 24Emmy. I always thought Norm and Cliff  (along with Carla) were the best supporting players on the show and it was a shame to see them never get a win.
