    Which Emmy-winning show are you most surprised only won 1 time for Best Comedy Series? I included all shows with 3+ nominations.

    Other one-time winners include:
    Ally McBeal
    Make Room for Daddy
    The Art Carney Special
    The Bob Newhart Show [variety series]
    The Monkees
    My World and Welcome to It

    The Office and Seinfeld are considered to be the best comedies ever written, Friends and Sex and the City are two more popular and beloved by audiences comedies worldwide. The four of them are real shockers. That shows that Emmy voters have their own tastes here unlike dramas where they are more in line with audiences and critics.

    30 Rock was never popular outside US, Modern Family was such a strange transition after 30 Rock and The Office, it was a huge worldwide audience hit and it was liked, but not adored, by critics. And then Veep is the strangest, it is so unpopular, so niche, only 37 000 votes on IMDB, it is by far the less popular Program Emmy winner in the last decade (random TV movies do not count), I have never met a single person that have watched it in real life. And The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is what future winners are going to be, it is popular, beloved by critics and it is going to get more and more popular with time (like The Americans, Mad Men and Downton Abbey), maybe can beat Veep this year after all.

    The Emmys are pretty peculiar.

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus won 6 acting Emmys for Veep, 1 for New Adventures of Christine, and 1 for Seinfeld. For Series wins, Veep has 3 and Seinfeld has 1.

    Tony Hale has 2 wins and 5 nominations for Veep, and was never nominated for Arrested Development. Also, 3 Series wins for Veep, 1 for Arrested Development.

    I like Modern Family, but it’s scary to think that it has just as many Series wins as M*A*S*H, Seinfeld, Friends, The Office and Arrested Development combined.

    30 Rock is good, but not 3 Best Comedy Series wins good.

    To be honest, I think the Golden Globes are better at picking TV winners.

    Yes, I agree that they are very peculiar, but I completely disagree about the Golden Globes, they have awarded a lot of forgotten or mediocre series just to surprise or to be trendy.

    What is worse: Awarding Mozart in the Jungle and Brooklyn Nine-Nine or Modern Family five times? What is worse: Never awarding Curb Your Enthusiasm or never awarding Arrested Development or the American version of The Office? I am going to have to side with the Emmys. Looking at the list of past Globe winners, I just noticed that they were guilted into awarding Modern Family, as it had to wait until its third nomination. As for this poll, I went with Seinfeld since it is the all-time great sitcom, but it had heavy competition in this poll. It is crazy that 30 Rock won three times over The Office.

    I am happy we agree on that! I also agree about the Globes being guilted into awarding Modern Family, although they were never guilted to award Veep and Game of Thrones and they will never be.
