The snubs for the two stars of WILL & GRACE always baffled me.July 14, 2015 at 3:02 pm #353136
The snubs for the two stars of WILL & GRACE always baffled me.
Voters could think in that way: leading players was clearly overshadowed by supporting players (Hayes & Mullally); what McCormack and Messing did wasn’t enough to warrant a nomination (at least every year).July 14, 2015 at 5:47 pm #353137
Holding out hope Merritt will pull through this yearJuly 14, 2015 at 8:33 pm #353138
Even though they won one year, some shows got tiresome the following year, at least it seems that way for Emmy voters and they just weren’t as high on them as they once were. If you put that together with strong competition you understand some snubs. Kristen Johnston is a good example of those two things (even if Lithgow, still got in, not that much competition in that category). Catrall and Aniston joined the race after Johnston’s win. Merritt Wever could be in that same boat. Jon Cryer too. Maybe even Michael Richards.
Many people atribute Piven’s snubs to the whole poisoning controversy. But even with that, it doesn’t make sense, he deserved to be nominated until the end. And during his first snub, Kevin Dillon still got nominated. So they weren’t quite over the show yet.
I believe Debra Messing’s next season after her win was when she got pregnant and she missed some episodes to complications. So her snub was predicted by a lot of people, even though she only missed 4 or 5 episodes. But they were mostly the final episodes of the season of people truly believed it would hurt her as if it were the Tonys and nobody could see her perform. Ridiculous. She deserved her nomination.
Eric McCormack’s snub makes a bit of sense. Friends was huge that year (following 9/11) and got two actors nominated, plus the Bernie Mac Show premiered to huge acclaim. So it makes sense for a voter looking for new things to snub the previous winner even though the show is still big and you have Kelsey Grammer right there on his 45th nomination.
I don’t remember this that well, even though I watched the entire show last year, but I think Bebe Newirth wasn’t quite as regular on the show after her second win.
Felicity Huffman probably got snubbed due to the tape system from 2006 which hurt the entire show (and possibly others like Spader and Arquette). Candice Bergen dropped out of the race herself. Katherine Heigl and Cherry Jones didn’t submit themselves either.
I can’t explain why Eric Stonestreet isn’t getting nominated while the others still are.July 15, 2015 at 1:19 pm #353140
Could Ty Burrell might have meet the same destiny Stonestreet had 2 years ago?
He was also #1 in the prediciton center back in 2013 but dissappeared from Emmys radar all of a sudden and never came back again.
And this is more likely than ever now since Modern Family’s popularity and buzz have decreasing every year since then.
I mean, what is the difference? Is Burrell a more popular actor or his character is more showier on the show? Actually an argument could be made about the exact opposite.
They both have 2 Emmys for the show, Burrell has also 2 more nomination but could he have been nominated this much if he was the one who won that year instead of Stonestreet and if voters felt like he was over-awarded?(Not sure if this is a real word)
Stonestreet has also 3 GG nominations on his bag while Burrell is the only person in his ensemble to win an Individual SAG for the show.(Though this is probably not exactly about him, until that year MF men continuously have been nominated with 2 of each in the same category and every year votes have been splitted. So if Stonestreet was the sole nomination for the show that year he would have probably won, too.)July 15, 2015 at 2:00 pm #353141
John Larroquette and Candice Bergen both took themselves out of consideration.July 16, 2015 at 3:08 am #353142
I think Stonestreet wasn’t nominated last year because voters realized that with 2 wins he already has more than enough. I wonder how he and remaining MF actors will perform this year.July 16, 2015 at 9:40 am #353143
Julianna Margulies & Jim Parsons now added to the list. I’m so angry and happy at the same time…July 17, 2015 at 11:18 am #353144
Dysart was snubbed because the seventh season of L.A. Law was shit, after the St. Elsewhere gang destroyed the show after both Steven Bochco & David E. Kelley moved on to greener pastures (i.e. NYPD Blue and Picket Fences, respectively).
This list would be longer, if it included shows that ended/were cancelled (i.e. Dick Van Dyke, Carroll O’Connor, Tony Randall, MTM, Dana Delany, Nancy Marchand, John Ritter, etc.), or if the actor left their show (i.e. Michael J. Fox, Andre Braugher), or if the actor’s character was killed off (i.e. Zeljko Ivanek, Margo Martindale, Drea DeMatteo) the show the year for which they won.July 17, 2015 at 1:16 pm #353145
1966 – 1979.
1975 / Robert Blake / Baretta / ABC (note: was nominated in 1977)
1977 / Lindsay Wagner / The Bionic Woman / ABC
1968 / Milton Stone / Gunsmoke / CBS

1974 / Rob Reiner / All in the Family / CBS

This list is missing Jamie Pressly (won for season 2 in 2007, not nominated for seasons 3 and 4).July 18, 2015 at 11:47 am #353147
A note needs to be made that, after his win, O’Quinn did not submit his name for consideration until the final season.July 18, 2015 at 12:48 pm #353148
BenitoDelicias & Somnambulist, thanks for update!
Who knows, in which category Patricia Wettig was submitted in 1989? If she stayed in supporting category, then she is the only drama actress in supporting category who was not nominated after the win. But if she tried break through in leading category, then “Supporting Actress in a Drama Series” is the only category, where everybody in usual situation (when they submitted himself in the right category) was nominated after the win.
