I was looking at all the major nominations since 1972 through 2019 and thinking about the various actors and actresses who were imo robbed of nominations during that period. I watched certain shows more than others so my personal list reflects it but these are mine – I have surely forgotten some but these came to the top of my mind. Some of these were nominated for other shows (or even won). Here is my list:

I am certain I have forgotten a ton of deserving performers but these are the ones who came to the top of my mind!March 24, 2021 at 6:44 pm #1204156556
It still find it baffling that ATWT’s Jake Silbermann (Noah) was continuously overlooked for a Younger Actor nomination, when his character’s storyline was just as challenging and his work equally strong as that of his co-star, Van Hansis (Luke), who was showered with multiple consecutive nominations.March 27, 2021 at 9:51 am #1204161065
I am going to add Drake Hogestyn to your Dool list, he was really good in Marlena’s DNR storyline, and was even prenommed, but no nomination sadly.March 28, 2021 at 3:28 am #1204162234
FreemanGriffin already listed my No. 1 pick: Kate Collins of ABC’s All My Children. Her run, as a series regular, was with seven seasons—the 1985–86 thru the 1991–92 seasons. Collins delivered Emmy-caliber work playing Natalie Hunter in four of those seasons: the 1985–86 season (her premiere, in which she was mesmerizing); the 1987–88 season (Natalie’s rape which, by the way, garnered Robert Gentry, as Ross who raped Natalie, a lead actor nomination); the 1989–90 season (unlikely pairing of Natalie and Trevor; James Kiberd belongs on the list for his work on this series and on ABC’s Loving, which was also award-worthy); and the 1991–92 season (introduction of Natalie’s twin Janet Green).
Who should also be on the list is 1973 Tony winner Patricia Elliott of ABC’s One Life to Live. As Renee Divine, the ex-madam and truelove of Asa Buchanan (Phil Carey, who also belongs on the list), Elliott showed us why reacting was as important as acting. And she didn’t come across like she was delivering a performance. Superb.
Among those who also belong on the list: Tonya Pinkins, a 1992 Tony winner, of AMC; Scott Holmes of CBS’s As the World Turns; Kristina [Malandro] Wagner of ABC’s General Hospital; Tina Sloan of CBS’s Guiding Light; Amelia Marshall of NBC’s Passions; and Kate Linder of CBS’s The Young and the Restless.March 29, 2021 at 9:04 am #1204163750
Jake Silbermann was one of the best. His subtle acting was what made me fall in love with his character, Noah’s coming out story wouldn’t have been as entertaining and well received as it was if he wasn’t for him.March 30, 2021 at 8:42 am #1204165789
Renee Jones (Lexie) on DAYS delivered Emmy-worthy work in a few storylines during her time with the show, including Lexie’s search for her biological father that culminated in learning that it was Stefano in the later mid-90s; Lexie’s turn to the dark side where she conspired with Stefano to help her and Abe keep their (actually Hope and Bo’s) baby in the early 2000s; a couple of years later when Lexie finally got pregnant after sleeping with Abe’s son Brandon and set Sami up to get caught switching the results; and Lexie’s death from a brain tumor in the later 2000s.
