    Let’s keep the discussions going. Did not think this would be that fun when it was started but let’s go….

    -The Sopranos should have the most wins.
    -Succession made a great winner, but I was rooting for Ozark.
    -The Americans not winning is a crime.

    I think Breaking Bad and Mad Men should be tied for the record.

    The former for seasons 3, 4, 5A, and 5B.

    The latter for seasons 1, 2, 4, and 7B.

    Succession is the best win in a very long time.

    The West Wing had no reason winning Drama Series 4 times especially over The Sopranos.

    Emmys over the past 25 years love their speeches and quirkiness in drama series and “big Emmy moments”. It makes the show seem more important. Plus that is when the Emmys became huge into repeat winners.

    This is why David E. Kelley dominated the 90s. His seasons of LA Law were the first 2 90s winners, plus the first 2 seasons of Picket Fences, then The Practice closed out the 90s. In between you had the quirkiness of Northern Exposure, plus 3 anomalies: NYPD Blue, ER, Law & Order. Those 3 are more traditional TV classic shows: cops, doctors, cops/courtroom. These 3 shows racked up noms aplenty, but not as many big wins as the DEK shows. NYPD Blue was probably the most successful with 9 directing nods and 4 wins, and 12 writing nods with 3 wins. ER won 2 directing Emmys out of 13 noms and 1 writing win out of 7 nods. Law & Order had 3 directing nods and 1 writing nod, with no wins.

    I’m surprised ER didn’t get more Emmy love. It was the ratings behemoth of the time and got good critical acclaim in its early years. Anthony Edwards was criminally robbed of an acting win. But taking L&O out of the equation, the fact that NYPD Blue and ER have 2 drama series wins TOTAL is shocking.

    Game of Thrones should have won for it’s first 6 seasons.

    Brothers and Sisters deserved a nomination for all of it’s seasons.

    Grey’s Anatomy season 2 would have been a worthy winner.

    This Is Us should have won in 2018.

    The Good Fight has been deserving of a nomination for all seasons.

    Succession should have won for both season 1 and 2

    Suits first couple of seasons would have been a worthy nominee.

    The Americans should have never missed a nomination.

    – Buffy should have been nominated for all 7 of its seasons and won for 5 of them.

    – Mad Men should have won for season 7B along with its wins for 1-4.

    – The Good Wife never should have missed a Drama Series nomination and should have won.

    – Game of Thrones season 8 shouldn’t have even been nominated.

    The Wire should’ve won Drama Series in 2005 and 2007 for its masterful 3rd and 4th seasons.

    The Wire should’ve won Drama Series in 2005 and 2007 for its masterful 3rd and 4th seasons.

    And Idris Elba should have at least won once.

    The Crown or The Americans should have won in 2018. <i>Game of Thrones </i>winning then was also a joke.

    This conversation made me realize how crime genre is so prominent in good tv.

    Same with Michael Kenneth Williams.

    The fact he doesn’t have an Emmy even post The Wire when he’s delivered excellent performances in The Night Of and When They See Us is a disgrace too (haven’t seen Bessie but I’m sure he’s excellent in that). I can understand him losing for WTSU to Whishaw but he was much better in The Night Of than Skarsgard in BLL imo.

    St. Elsewhere was nominated for all 6 of its seasons, won a number of acting prizes, 2 writing, 1 directing, but came up empty for the top prize. It lost to Hill Street Blues twice, Cagney & Lacey twice, LA Law Season 1, and thirtysomething season 1.

    It is to go back into the 80s noms and see who all was nominated and think if those shows would be nominated today or thought of as merely entertainment. I mean shows like Dallas; The Rockford Files; Quincy, ME; Dynasty; Magnum, PI; Miami Vice, Beauty and the Beast; Murder, She Wrote. I think some could still get nominated today: Family (shades of This Is Us?); Lou Grant; The White Shadow; Fame; Moonlighting; China Beach; Wiseguy; Rumpole of the Bailey (oh the love of all shows British haha)
