    His work in seasons 2 & 3 was Emmy quality, and yet, he has never been nominated?

    PS: His work for Season 5.2 might finally land him that nom.

    The other nominees cast too big a shadow.

    Supporting Actor is loaded.    I never really felt he was snubbed that badly.   Nomination for this season seems likely though.

    He deserved a nomination for season 3 and would’ve been competitive with “One Minute” (one of the series’ best)….. of course.. Paul was unbelievable in that episode as well so it would’ve just pushed him even further over the top. 

    It wasn’t until season 4 though that actors other than Paul and Cranston started breaking through and getting nominations. Similar situations happened with “30 Rock” and “Mad Men”.. They made a name for themselves in the major MAJOR categories (Series, lead acting), and then a handful of deserving performers broke in at once.

    The competition like everyone has mention. Also mention, season 3 was when he was a contender. With his work being universally acclaim in these final episodes, the show getting two people in supporting actor, and “Under the Dome” being a summer hit he’s a lock for a nomination next year.

    He should’ve been nominated for Season 3. I don’t think Breaking Bad was as popular as it is now and even though Aaron Paul won for that season, it still doesn’t mean the show was as popular as it is today. These last two years he could’ve been an easy nominee but he didn’t really have a storyline and development as great as he did back then and to makes matter worse he had two other co-stars (one a close Lead) that were better, more buzzed and more important than Hank was. And all three got nominated deservingly for their work in two different years while he gets “snubbed”.

    Now this season he’s the 3rd guy again, the new Mike and/or Gus, and now the show is huge AND he has an even bigger part than the one for which he should’ve been nominated in season 3. He can easily be nominated this year, so far he’s done more than enough.

    Norris should have been nodded for “One Minute.” Next year, though. Watch out.

    So if Norris had been nominated in other years, what tapes should he have submitted? (other than the obvious “One Minute” for season 3)

    I remember in 2010 there two guys in this category who had no chance to win; John Slattery and Martin Short I wish they had snubbed one of them and nominated Norris who surely would have submitted “One minute”

    Dean Norris really should have been nominated in 2010 for “One Minute” I agree, though, that the episode would have really pushed Paul over the edge, as he was great in the episode, as well.

    Shoul have Norris been nominated for the first season…and since were on this topic should have Betsy Brandt been nominated anytime throughout the series?

    Brand has had really good, Emmy-worthy performances in “I See You” and “Open House”.

    I don’t think Betsy Brandt is as Emmy-worthy as her co-stars but ANNA GUNN deserves to take home the gold this year

    He deserved to be nominated for Season 3, but with the work he’s had in the past 3 episodes he should be a lock. If Anna Gunn submits lead I’d expect Brandt to get in.

    Yeah, the show just wasn’t that popular during the first 3 seasons. It did get a lot of nominations (season 2 and 3 esp.) but the show wasn’t popular enough for it to get TWO actors nominated in one category. And Aaron Paul was the undeniable breakout star and he couldn’t be stopped.

    During season 4 and 5.1, he was just overshadowed by Banks and Esposito.

    I fully expect Norris to get in next year. Like one poster mentioned, he’s done more than enough to justify a nomination..

    Brandt has never really deserved a nomination tbh imo. However, she’s done great work this season and maybe I’ll support a potential break through, depending on how the rest of this eligibility period goes (if Orange is the New Black submits in Drama, it will be difficult for me!)
