    So I was on Netflix just scrolling through, and I saw Gilmore Girls once again. It seems like something I’d enjoy, but with how much TV there is, and has been, I can’t “waste” my time. You see, I’m trying to watch every show that has ever been nominated for a Best Series Emmy, Golden Globe, or Critics’ Choice, or that has had a shot at being nominated for one. Thanks to GoldDerby, the past decade is easy to see, because the only shows that really ever have a chance are those with better than 100/1 odds, or those that have 10% as many predicted nomination votes as the show in first place. Well, Gilmore Girls aired in the early 2000s, which means there aren’t predictions in the hub. I could go into the Internet Archive and try to find stuff on GoldDerby from back then, but there weren’t really odds, it was just a few experts giving predictions. So, here is my question: I know that Lauren Graham was nominated for awards for her performance, although never an Emmy, but did the show ever have a chance at any major awarding bodies? Also, are there any other shows pre-2010 that weren’t nominated for series Emmys or Golden Globes, but did have a shot, and were seen as snubs at the time?

    The Leftovers, for sure
    Deserved nominations and wins in drama series, directing, writing and acting categories – Carrie Coon, Christopher Eccleston, Regina King and Ann Dowd especially.

    Gilmore Girls – and namely the lovely Ms. Graham. While several residents of Stars Hollow have been nominated for (Milo Ventimiglia and even Trix Gilmore – Marion “Mrs. C” Ross) or won for other shows/programs (Sally Struthers, Edward Herrmann, Melissa McCarthy, and Alexis Bledel), Lauren Graham has 0 Nominations. Injustice in the World.

    – I Dream of Jeannie. It only scored one Emmy Nomination – for Comedy Series Writing, for creator Sidney Sheldon during the show’s first color season (1967), and TWO Golden Globe nods for Barbara Eden.

    – He & She for Comedy Series. It won for Comedy Series Writing in 1968 for its only season out of five nominations (Co-Stars Jack Cassady, and married co-stars Richard Benjamin & Paula Prentiss, and TWO nominations for Writing). If the show debuted a few years later, it would have been an Emmy juggernaut up against Mary Tyler Moore/All in the Family/M*A*S*H every year.

    – Happy Days for Comedy Series. How this show was not nominated for the Comedy Series Emmy eludes us? (There was an urban legend that a scrapped list of nominees from 1977 included Happy Days among the Series nominees that never came to fruition.) The show won one Editing Award during its 11 years, in spite of Henry Winkler being nominated three times, Marion Ross twice, and Tom Bosley once, plus two Directing nominations.

    – The Jeffersons for Comedy Series. Like Happy Days, on for 11 years. However, the longest running Black Sitcom in TV history gave us the ONLY African-American woman to win the Lead Actress Comedy Emmy.

    – Ellery Queen (the 1975 Version). Jim Hutton and David Wayne also deserved nominations for this version of the Mystery Writer Series, that was done by the producers of Columbo and Murder, She Wrote.

    I think the only one who actually read, or understood, what I was asking for is The BC 2.0. I’m not looking for shows in the last decade that were snubbed, or you think were. I’m looking for what shows before GoldDerby was around that were snubbed. For instance, last year, “Homecoming” was snubbed for Best Drama Series. It’s odds were pretty good, better than 20/1. But if GoldDerby wasn’t around, the only ways for someone to know that it was a real contender to be nominated would be: following the awards closely, reading articles after the nominations were announced, and/or looking at precursor or postcursor awards. Now, I was born in the 21st century, so I really couldn’t follow the awards until 2010, when GoldDerby really started. I could try to find some articles, and I probably will try, but I would need to use the Internet Archive, which I find a pain. So, the only practical one to do is looking at other awards, which doesn’t give a totally accurate view. Look at the first season of Insecure. It had a shot of being nominated, but it was an outside shot, only having odds of like 80/1. But, if you only looked at other awards, you wouldnt know that, because it wasnt nominated for the Golden Globe or the Critics Choice (I think). So, for those of you who are older and were able to follow awards before 2010, what were some shows like Homecoming or Insecure; those that had a real shot, but just weren’t nominated?

    It should have swept the tech categories. It was so beautifully shot.

    I thought the “poster girl” for Emmy snubs was Veronica Mars. Wasn’t the whole “semi-final round” the academy tried for a few years in the series and acting categories caused in part by the show’s/Kirsten Bell’s snubs?

    Also: Community – the one Emmy it did win (for an animator that worked on the stop-motion Christmas episode) was in a year when it didn’t get any nominations.
    (“Okay, Mr. Smart Guy, if it didn’t get any nominations, then how did it win an Emmy?” Individual Achievement in Animation is a juried award, that doesn’t have nominations; each entry gets its own yes-or-no vote for an Emmy.)

    As I said before Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    Its fourth season was arguably the show’s best in quality and I think the fact it missed Series was considered a snub especially considering it broke into Writing and Sarah Michelle-Gellar got her first and only Globe nomination that year.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    Buffy is the greatest show of all time and SMG should have won multiple trophies for every season of the show. I find it strange that the HFPA chose the fourth season to nominate her when Buffy as a character had arguably less emotional material than she had the previous two seasons. You could argue they were waking up to the fact that one of the best actresses was being overlooked, but to not throw every single award known to man at her for her unbelievable work in the fifth season is just baffling. “The Body” is the showcase for Gellar that season, but the final scene in “Forever” is nothing short of spectacular.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    Angel

    Charmed

    The Comeback

    Scream Queens

    Tell Me A Story

    Homecoming (this is the one show I’ll never understand being overlooked. It had everything going for it, an acclaimed cast and director, universal critical acclaim, recognition from other awards bodies, a popular streaming service and JULIA ROBERTS)
