    I couldn’t find a thread for this but I was wondering who everyone thought was second place in the above the line categories. Which performer, writer, director or show almost got Emmy gold. I thought this would be a better way to discuss who was 2nd in different cases instead of creating multiple threads.

    I’m going to post my thoughts on the above the line categories this decade (starting with 2010) but feel free to post your own thoughts below!

    “Mildred Pierce” should have won in all categories in 2011. It still upsets me that Downton was considered a miniseries, even though it had a second season. “Mildred Pierce” was one of the finest miniseries produced by HBO.

    — Glee was never winning more acting Emmys, Jane Lynch won rightfully so because she actually gave a comedic performance. Chris Colfer was never winning a Comedy Emmy for a dramatic performance and Lea Michele was cute and probably deserved two additional nominations but she never had a tape, it was about the work in the season overall, plus you don’t win Emmys just because you sing high notes.

    Ignoring the comment about high notes, I actually agree. As I said at the beginning of the Glee at the Emmys thread, the show’s actors always picked the wrong tape so never stood a chance. The only one that I do think just missed out was Kristen Chenoweth who was probably in second place in both 2010 and 2011.

    Glenn Close The Lion in Winter
    Judy Davis The Reagans
    Helen Mirren PRime Suspect

    I agree with this although despite Colfer submitting a Dramatic tape I still think he was second in 2010 and 11 like Thandie Newton was second in 2017. Glee’s continued nominations at SAG even after the fact it was snubbed from the Emmys shows that it very much was popular with actors in its prime and it’s very rare for Supporting performances to get into SAG, especially if they hadn’t won an Emmy beforehand. Colfer was nominated for Comedy Actor in 2011. I actually think had Glee been nominated at the Emmys now, it probably would have done a Maisel esque sweep. After all Rachel Brosnahan won for a dramatic and comedic performance in 2017.

    Plus you don’t win Emmys just because you sing high notes.

    I highly doubt the Emmys nominated Glee for 16 acting awards over its six seasons because the actors sung high notes.

    Keri Russell in Lead Actress 2016 and 2018 for The Americans.

    I think Viola Davis was second in 2016. She did after all win her second consecutive SAG award for HtGAwM that year.

    Remember Felicity Huffman’s submission for desperate housewives in 2007? She submitted « Bang » episode, the one with Laurie Metcalfe going crazy and shooting people in the grocery store. I find it laughable that she would submit a 100% dramatic performance for consideration in a Comedy category. This was the exact same issue I had with Cris Colfer in 2011.

    Felicity Huffman or Marc Cherry probably chose “Bang” because that was the most buzzed about episode in season 3. I really think that Laurie Metcalf would have won the Emmy if “Bang” were her submission instead of the season opener. I remember hearing that Marc Cherry had his hands in the selection of the Emmy submissions.

    You think Michael Emerson was 2nd in 2010? I’d say Terry O’Quinn was definetely above Emerson for the final season. Emerson was barely nomination worthy while O’Quinn probably had his best season since the first one.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I know I’m almost a year late in relying to this but…Laurie Metcalf wasn’t submitted for “Bang”????? She would have been  a worthy LEAD actress nominee with that episode!
