Quite a few of your favorite television performers have plenty of Emmy Awards on their shelves… Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Allison Janney, Cloris Leachman, Tina Fey. Other TV legends like Henry Winkler and Bob Newhart just picked up their first and only statuettes recently. But how about the many others still waiting for their trophy? Tour through our new photo gallery above featuring the Top 30 greatest TV stars who have never won an Emmy(arranged in alphabetical order). We only chose people with long-running television careers without reaching this one singular achievement.
Several people in our gallery are still actively working, with some of them on this year’s Emmy ballot seeking another shot at the gold. Those names include Tim Allen (“Last Man Standing”), Jason Bateman (“Ozark”), Kristen Bell (“The Good Place”), Don Cheadle (“Black Monday”), George Clooney (“Catch-22”), Marla Gibbs (“The Jeffersons”), Hugh Laurie (“Veep”) and Phylicia Rashad (“This Is Us”).
Others featured in this gallery have died and will never win Emmys since they careers are long over. Some had such stellar work, though, that the Television Academy has inducted them into their Hall of Fame. That list includes Desi Arnaz (“I Love Lucy”), Jackie Gleason (“The Honeymooners”), Andy Griffith (“The Andy Griffith Show”) and Michael Landon (“Bonanza,” “Little House on the Prairie”). Diahann Carroll (“Julia”) and Angela Lansbury (“Murder, She Wrote”) are still active TV Hall-of-Famers who might still win one day.
