    Marla Gibbs – 5 nominations for The Jeffersons and she was also deserving of a win. Marla should have also received a Guest Actress Drama nomination for Scandal in 2015. Marla does well at comedy and drama

    I’m not counting Lisa Kudrow not winning for The Comeback because she’ll sweep for the inevitable season three in 2026, so I’ll wait for that day. Lisa Kudrow The Comeback

    We can only hope! Though preferably 2021.

    Dennis Haysbert and Penny Johnson from 24 – especially seasons 1 and 2. They should have been nominated for Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress in a Drama

    Carrie Coon for all Three Seasons of The Leftovers. Best TV Performance I’ve personally seen yet no nominations.
    Should’ve won Supporting Actress S1, Lead Actress S2 and absolutely swept Lead Actress for Season 3.

    Runner Up would be Keri Russell for The Americans. Stellar stellar work, especially the final season, and Season 4.

    Has to be Jason Alexander for Seinfeld. George is probably one of the funniest sidekicks ever to grace a TV screen and how Alexander’s brilliant and hilarious performances never won an Emmy is simply ridiculous(plus, I’ve always found him better than Richards, who weirdly beat him three times).

    Peter Capaldi for the Thick Of It. Superior even to JLD in Veep, and unjustly ignored by the Emmys for years. Malcolm Tucker is one of the most iconic characters on British TV.

    FYC:

    Best Director - Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Darius Marder (Sound of Metal)

    Lead Actor - Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actor - Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actress - Youn Yuh-jung (Minari)

    6 pages and no one has even mentioned the never-nominee Emmy Rossum for her work in Shameless. IMO the biggest travesty from the Emmys in recent years.

    Maybe she jinxed herself by being called Emmy and the TV Academy thought she just changed her name for campaign purposes?

    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")

    My runner-up would be Hugh Laurie for House. All those years of amazing performances and yet he never won, stupidly losing to James Spader(really?) twice.

    The Wire for Best Drama Series for every season but particularly 3 and 4. The fact that no (Black) actors were nominated was an indictment on how white voters don’t see Black acting as acting, given how they think acting street/sassy/mean probably isn’t much of a stretch. Not every person on the show was Felicia Pearson. Idris Elba, Michael K. Williams, Chris Bauer and Wood Harris should have been locks at the very least.  Michael Kostroff also as Guest for a few of his eligible seasons.

    Directing for Season 3 episode 11. At the very least.

    Multiple writing episodes in every season aside for the two nominations it got. Too many to name.

    EDIT: Sorry the rules were a bit unclear haha. The Wire was just one big snub. Because no one who voted at the time appreciated it, or even got it.

    I enjoyed the show a lot (even though the writing wasn’t that great) and am still shocked at its cancellation and am slightly cheating here but the fact that these two weren’t nominated is a disgrace.

    Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams – The Crazy Ones (Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Lead Actor in a Comedy Series)

    These two were even arguably win worthy for the one and done that was The Crazy Ones. They really elevated the quality of the show and they had really magical chemistry and gave probably one of the best father-daughter portrayals on TV ever. It’s such a shame Sarah Michelle Gellar doesn’t have an Emmy nomination never mind an Emmy win when she truly elevates everything she’s in.

    YES. However, once Sometimes I Lie and Other Peoples Houses go into development, that’s two more chances for them to realise how much they’ve disrespected Gellar in the past. In my mind she has a mantle full of Emmys.

    Chloe Sevigny should have been nominated (and WON) for Big Love! At least the HFPA have taste…

    Despite those snubs, she did win a Daytime Emmy for All My Children in 1995.
