    Danes was nominated.

    The Emmy voters would probably pick Jean Smart from this list, since they’ve been giving her make-up Emmy nominations and wins for a decade now.

    My picks:

    • Linda Cardellini, Freaks and Geeks
    • Courteney Cox, Friends
    • Peri Gilpin, Frasier
    • Lauren Graham, Gilmore Girls
    • Penny Johnson Jerald, 24
    • Melissa Leo, Homicide: Life on the Street
    • Mary McDonnell, Battlestar Galactica
    • Katee Sackhoff, Battlestar Galactica
    • Chloë Sevigny, Big Love
    • Susanna Thompson, Once and Again
    • Jeanne Tripplehorn, Big Love
    • Evan Rachel Wood, Once and Again

    It was very hard for me to narrow this list down to just ten possibilities.

     

    I LOVED Dixie Carter on Designing Women, ever since her performance in the second episode of the series where she went off on someone who was talking bad about Suzanne. Ever since then, she has given some of the most memorable kick-ass scenes in television history!

    Jamie Lee Curtis, I thought,was fantastic in Anything But Love. Thankfully, she will always have a Globe to  go  with that performance.

    Sarah Michelle Gellar: to be honest, I was never really a big fan of the show, but I added  her because EVERYONE around here is always talking how she was underservably snubbed.

    Lauren Graham and Evangeline Lilly (see Gellar)

    Eva Longoria is the only leading lady of Desperate Housewives to not be nominated for an Emmy, which is a damn shame!

    Reba McEntire will always be one of my favorite comedy actresses. She was fantastic in Reba, and deserved much more award recognition than she got!

    Nicollette Sheridan was down right perfect in Desperate Housewives.

    And finally I loved Jean Smart in Designing Women. Her and Delta Burke were the funniest women on that show!

    Graham and Gellar are the only truly snubbed women on that list. Everyone else, considering who they were competing against, were reasonably overlooked.

    Since SMG already has an Emmy, I am going to go w/Lauren Graham, b/c she was never nominated for one and that has been on of that categories greatest traveties in the last decade.

    Had Graham been nominated all those seasons, she would’ve had at least 2 Emmys based on tape. That’s how fucking ridiculous her snub was. So out of this group, it has to be her.

    But where is Katey Seagal? She was snubbed for not one, but TWO memorable tv characters, in comedy and in drama. Now the woman gets snubbed even in snubbed lists in favor of Brooke Shields and Reba McEntire?

    OMG! REBA all the way! I’m not saying the show was Emmy worthy (even though I loved it), but if this show had played on ABC or CBS, Reba McEntyre would have probably gotten at least one deserved nomination. “I’M REBA!”

    Of the ones on that list, I like the mentions of the following:

    Dixie Carter
    Jean Smart
    Reba McEntire

    If I’m bored and searching for something on tv to watch and come across “Reba” on Lifetime, I watch. I think she was great in that role.

    Gellar goes without saying. She would have trumped everyone with “The Becoming: Part 2,” “The Body,” and “Once More With Feeling.” Graham would be an obvious choice as well.

    Aside from the those two, however, I’d say Sara Rue was snubbed BIG TIME for “Less Than Perfect.” Definitely one of the most underrated comedies and casts on TV in the past decade. “Claude on one Knee” would have won Rue a very deserved Comedy Actress Emmy.

    While Reba McEntire was fantastic on Reba, the true star of the show was Melissa Peterman, who had me in stitches. What is she doing these days?

    I came this close to including her on this list. That show all around was undeservingly snubbed, when McEntire and Peterman deserved nominations. At least Reba will always have her Globe nomination for that role!

    Katey Sagal would have had my vote.
