    I am curious. When have people though something was locked for sure, like Julia Louis Dreyfus, and not win.

    Matt Bomer losing for The Normal Heart seems like the biggest one in recent memory to me.

    Ty Burrell for “Modern Family” (his 2014 win) and Regina King for “American Crime”.

    Merritt Wever, Regina King, Sherlock’s two acting wins in the same year, Ellen Burstyn for Political Animals come to mind.

    Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom – well , just because.

    Kyle Chandler, Friday Night Lights – this was supposed to be the Jon Hamm year because Cranston was not nominated that year because Breaking Bad did not air new episodes during the eligibility period.

    Hadn’t seen a win so unexpected since Marisa Tomei.
