    Laura Linney in lead comedy actress for the pilot of “The Big C.” The pilot felt written almost exclusively to give Linney an Emmy, and she really was incredible. I know she won an Emmy later on for the role, but it still stings that she lost to “Mike and Molly.”

    I also love someone above mentioned Sharon Gless for “Nip/Tuck,” who gave one of the best camp performances. Talk about someone chewing the scenery whole.

    Sandra Oh in Grey’s Anatomy and Killing Eve

    I would agree with this, although Sandra still has some chances left. I’m unsure as to whether it’s even possible for her to win for Killing Eve anymore, since it seems like all the awards organizations have moved beyond it to look at brighter, shinier, newer objects. At minimum, Sandra should get in the Television Academy Hall of Fame considering how she’s primarily a television actress.

    My pick though is Angela Lansbury for Murder, She Wrote and everything else she was nominated for. 17 acting Emmy nominations and 0 wins. 12 nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series (Murder, She Wrote), 2 nominations for Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program (1987 Tonys & Sweeney Todd), 1 nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Special (Little Gloria…Happy at Last), 1 nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie (The Blackwater Lightship), and 1 nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series (Law & Order SVU). She did however get in the Television Academy Hall of Fame in 1996.

    For the record- I’m not going to claim this is the biggest Emmy snub of all time, as my television knowledge doesn’t extend past 2000 (along with most of this forum’s). So of “all time” is a stretch, but in recent memory, one never winner

    and one never nominated in supporting/not nominated for the right season

    In terms of never nominated by the academy: Rhea Seehorn – Better Call Saul
    In terms of being snubbed for a specific season: Michael Sheen – The Good Fight (Season 3)
    In terms of never winning: Christina Hendricks – Mad Men (all of it) (she was phenomenal in Season 3 and should have won for that. They should have given her the Emmy for Season 3 and then they should have still given Archie Panjabi the Emmy for The Good Wife but for Season 2 because she had a better role in that season than in Season 1)
    In terms of a performance that wasn’t even on the academy radar: Sarah Michelle Gellar – Buffy (how on Earth has Buffy never been nominated for an acting Emmy or even won?)

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    This definitely isn’t the worst of all time, but Mother’s Mercy beating the Mad Men finale in writing is one I think about a lot.

    And speaking of Mad Men, shutouts for Hendricks, Moss and Slattery.

    Jessica Walter for Arrested development

    This is shameful because Jessica Walter probably came in 6th in the voting for Supporting Actress for season one in 2004 behind the three from Sex & The City (Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall, and Kristin Davis), Megan Mullally and Doris Roberts. If nominated, Jessica would have been competitive for the win.

    Jessica Walter had a winning episode in season 4 in 2013 if she were nominated.

    Jane Kaczmarek not winning a single Emmy or precursor for Malcolm in the Middle

    Based on the submissions of the nominees in 2006, Jane Kaczmarek should have won. Jane also had a competitive submission in 2001 and probably split the vote with Debra Messing from Will & Grace. That is the only way I can reconcile Patricia Heaton winning.

    This has to be biggest snub. I think one of Angela’s best submissions was in season 2 when she played 2 characters, but she lost to Sharon Gless’s first win in 1986.

    I would have loved to see Sherri Shepherd get nominated for her guest starring turns on 30 Rock:

    This is going to be huge exaggeration for this thread, but I just finished watching all three seasons to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Justine Lupe was absolutely ROBBED of a guest nomination for season 2. She was hilarious. Blew me away, especially since I watched Succession a couple of months ago. She deserved better!

    It’s gonna be annoying to see Wanda Sykes get name checked for a nominations this year while Lupe gets ignored.

    Yep. Was mad Lupe had nothing to do in season 3. She was insanely deserving for season 2.

    Wanda Sykes did not get nominated for Guest Actress for Black-ish in 2019 so she would not have taken Justin Lupe’s spot for season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Wanda Sykes was nominated in 2017 and 2018.

    The one that is truly robbed of a nomination is Jenifer Lewis from Black-ish.
