    The WB’s 90s supernatural dramas.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer- Sarah Michelle Gellar should be a multiple Emmy winner with this role. The fact she and the series were never nominated for Best Actress and Best Drama is unforgivable. Supporting cast members like Anthony Stewart Head, Alyson Hannigan, Emma Caulfield and James Marsters all had episodes that would secure them nominations and wins throughout the series. It had brilliant guest performances in Juliet Landau, Eliza Dusku, Harry Groener, Lindsay Crause, Nathan Fillion, John Ritter and so many more. Buffy definitely gets its credit as an iconic show and one of the best ever, but its lack of awards recognition is unfair.

    Angel- Similar to Buffy, its leading cast and the series itself all have episodes worthy of Emmy recognition. David Boreanaz, Charisma Carpenter, Alexis Denisof, J. August Richards and Amy Acker all had Lead or Supporting worthy showcases and the guest actors like Stephanie Romanov went completely unnoticed (Romanov should have been a series regular but that’s another argument).

    Charmed- While the show was not something that sustained its Emmy worthy status for its entire run, season 3 and 4 are definitely brilliant seasons of television and the core actors all had gave fantastic performances when the writers wanted to create a dramatic show. Shannen Doherty, Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs and Rose McGowan all should have been nominated throughout the run. Combs’ performances in 4×01 and 4×03 are some of the best depictions of grief I’ve ever seen. Doherty’s final episode (3×22, which she directed) should have earned her two individual nominations that year. Milano was used for a lot of the shows comedic purposes but man when they gave her dramatic material, she delivered every single time (3×14 was a great episode for her, and her entire arc at the end of season 4 was an excellent showcase). Rose McGowan’s turn in 4×10 when she retells the story of how her parents died and goes back in time to stop it was amazing work. I can forgive the series being overlooked, but the 4 leads should not have been treated the way the Academy (and The WB) treated them.

    I will kind of say The Shield. It did win Michael Chiklis an Emmy in 2002 and he was nominated again in 2003, but he deserved more nominations. I was glad to see Glenn Close get nominated in 2005 for Lead Actress and finally CCH Pounder in 2005, but this show deserved more nominations.

    Walton Goggins should have been nominated and had some submissions that would have given the Lost guys a run for their money. Also, Anthony Anderson should have been nominated in 2005 because he was outstanding as Antoine

    I’m always shocked by how the Television Academy (and other television awards show bodies) forgot about Chiklis and the show after the second season. They had their best seasons ahead.

    I agree because The Shield definitely should have made Outstanding Drama Series a number of times.

    The Affair really deserved to win Drama Actress (Ruth Wilson) last year and in 2015 and win Drama Actor (Dominic West) in 2015, Drama Supporting Actress (Maura Tierney) in 2016 and get nominated for Drama Series, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor (Joshua Jackson) every year of its run (including this year).

    Claire Foy deserved to be nominated for Wolf Hall and so did Jonathan Pryce.

    Jared Harris deserved to be nominated for The Crown.

    Ruth Wilson deserved to be nominated for Luther. So did Indira Varma.

    Matt Czuchry deserved to WIN for season 6 of The Good Wife.

    Christine Baranski deserved to get nominations for every season of The Good Fight. Michael Sheen should have gotten a nomination last year.

    Jodie Whittaker should have been nominated for Doctor Who last year.

    I will go out on a limb and say Sherri Shepherd for 30 Rock. I do think that she should have received a few Emmy nominations with a possible win for the episode “Queen of Jordan”.

    Thinking of the recent thread about actors being snubbed in shows that were otherwise popular with actors, I have these choses:

    Dean Norris in Breaking Bad

    Vincent Kartheiser in Mad Men

    Gavin MacLeod in The Mary Tyler Moore Show

    Couldn’t agree more. Michelle Gellar’s performance in season 5 I think foreshadowed another Emmy winning performance I like which is Julianna Margulies in season 5 of The Good Wife. In my opinion both should have won for every season of their shows.

    Caulfield should have won for season 7, Hannigan for season 6, Marsters for season 6, Stewart Head for season 5 and Boreanaz should have won for season 2.

    Also Julie Benz never even getting nominated for Angel is appalling.

    The Deuce, The Leftovers, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, You’re The Worst, and obviously, The Wire.

    do just being nominated once counts? because if it does, January Jones for almost every season of Mad Men

    I will say, as someone who loved her performances in the first three seasons, I wouldn’t have nominated her after that, as Betty because less interesting and she had much less to do. If she was considered guest, I’d have nominated her for 7B though.

    I think the biggest snub from Mad Men was Kiernan Shipka. She deserved nominations for at least 7A and 7B.

    Nick Offerman for Supporting Actor
    Megan Mullally for Guest Actress
    Helen Slayton-Hughes as Ethel Beavers for Guest Actress

    Amy Poehler, the writers and the show were recognized with nominations, but the above should have been recognized as well.

    I also think the character of Ethel Beavers is a hoot and it would have been amazing to see Helen Slayton-Hughes recognized with an Emmy nomination.

    Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu should have been nominated for the first three seasons of Elementary.

    Blackpool (or Viva Blackpool as it is known in the States) should have been nominated for Limited Series (which it was nominated for the Globes), Limited/Movie Actor (David Morissey), Limited/Movie Actress (Sarah Parish) and Limited/Movie Supporting Actor (David Tennant).

    David Tennant and Rose Byrne should have been nominated for their performances in Casanova.

    Florence Pugh should have been nominated for The Little Drummer Girl.

    Elizabeth Debicki should have been nominated instead of Olivia Colman for The Night Manager and Tom Hiddleston shouldn’t have even been nominated. Elizabeth Debicki also should have been nominated for an Emmy for The Tale and so should Ellen Burstyn.

    Olivia Cooke and Frances de la Tour were criminally overlooked in Vanity Fair, especially Cooke who should already have an Emmy and I suspect will have at least an Emmy nomination by the end of the decade.

    And finally for this post, Jodie Comer’s work in Thirteen really should have gotten her nominated for her first Emmy nomination (Killing Eve season 1 should have been her second and obviously she should have won for season 2 as she deservedly did win). Her performance in Thirteen is probably in the top 5 of the best in a Limited Series in the 2010s and an argument can be made for her to even being more deserving than Sarah Paulson in OJ Simpson (whose performance I loved!)
