    She’s a legend who has been under rewarded. Wondering why Kristen Johnston and the late great Doris Roberts have more Emmys. Is it just tapes? She seems to have followed the JLD trajectory.  Does she just need a VEEP to showcase her talent?

    Why doesn’t Amy Poheler have more Emmys? Why doesn’t Bob Newhart have more Emmys? Why doesn’t Elisabeth Moss have any Emmys? Why doesn’t Angela Lansbury have any Emmys?

    Why doesn’t Jon Hamm have any Emmys? Why doesn’t David Duchovny have any Emmys? Why doesn’t Jason Alexander have any Emmys? Why doesn’t Sarah Michelle Gellar have any Emmy NOMINATIONS?!

    Kudrow should be a four-time winner in my opinion (Seasons 4 and 5 of Friends and both seasons of The Comeback) and I disagree that it’s due to her needing to find roles that showcase her talent better as IMO you couldn’t find a better showcase than The Comeback, which to me is one of the greatest female comedy performances ever.

    To answer the question, I think she was just unlucky with Friends as by the time the Emmys were truly embracing the show in a way that would have enabled her to win again all the cast had decided to submit lead which she was never going to win in. As for The Comeback, it’s too divisive so it’s not really that surprising (however disappointing) that she hasn’t won for it yet. Tbh, my biggest shock of her not winning another one was her guest spot on Scandal a few years ago, which had all the buzz, performance, narrative I thought was needed until she was snubbed the nomination.

    JLD has never achieved such high as Kudrow achieved with The Comeback. She should have won both times she was nominated for it. I hope third season will be a charm for Lisa.

    It’ll be a sad season without Robert Michael Morris.
    I think Kudrow just needs to do another show.

    She deserved her Emmy for sure. Once again, as everybody needs to be reminded when this topic comes up, Kristen Johnston did deserve her second win, as much as Kudrow did, and Lucy Liu too. It was a bloodbath with those amazing submissions the three of them delivered, somebody had to win, two had to loose (two didn’t matter), sadly Kudrow lost.

    Julia Louis Dreyfus needs to give those Emmys back to Kudrow. Her Christine Emmy is undeserved as it was for the first season which was very lackluster, but as the years went by with Chrstine, I was fine with Dreyfus having an Emmy for such an amazing role and eventually, amazing show and performance. Of course, we didn’t know Veep would be comming soon. Then for Veep, what can one say?, she has deserved all her Emmys, Kudrow screwed up her second Comeback submission if I remember correctly, but that was a great season for her too and another deserving win.

    The problem continues to be this fucking category that only rewards whoever is IN. It would’ve been impossible for Dreyfus to ever win for Christine had she lost that year, for example. And then she was all they cared about when Veep came along because nobody else made a huge impact and resulted in the “IT”/”IN” girl.

    Kudrow was decent at picking tapes. Problem is, so were Johnston, Mullally and Roberts, so you indeed had some juggernaut years there that were all but impossible to decide on. For what it’s worth, I actually think Jane Leeves should have prevailed the year Kudrow won and Kudrow should’ve defeated Johnston the year after.

    “The Comeback” was too divisive in lead actress, and Kudrow had to contend with a bunch of Emmy hogs in supporting actress (though no one did the tape submitting game better than old Doris! Mad props!). Also robbed blind of a guest actress nod for “Kimmy.”

    Lol @ people attacking JLD in a thread that has nothing to do with her. The reason Kudrow doesn’t have more emmys is because she hasn’t won them. The comeback was probably never big enough to get her an emmy, 1 was definitely enough for friends. I’m not sure I’ve seen anything else of hers that warrented a nomination. She’s probably had some guest roles that could have at least gotten nominated but didn’t.

    Who’s attacking JLD? The worst anyone has said is that Kudrow was better than her which is hardly much (other than that it’s true ofc :P)
