    Seriously, why? She has not been nominated for anything since Bleak House. And I for one think that she should have been nominated for:

    2017

    Lead Actress In A Drama Series – The Fall

    Guest Actress In A Drama Series – American Gods

    2016

    Lead Actress In A Drama Series – The X-Files

    Supporting Actress In A Drama Series – Hannibal 

    Supporting Actress In A Limited Series or TV Movie – War & Peace

    2015

    Lead Actress In A Drama Series – The Fall

    Guest Actress In A Drama Series – Hannibal

    2014

    Lead Actress In A Drama Series – The Fall

    Guest Actress In A Drama Series – Hannibal 

     

    *** I know she was not submitted for some of these.

    ** Bolded ones are the one she should have won

    * SHE IS F*CKING ROBBED

    She should definitely have more awards, but all of her shows have gotten nothing at the Emmys, so they aren’t singling her out as someone not to nominate.

    She should have WON for Hannibal season 3, but even if the show was an awards magnet the Emmys don’t gravitate towards overly subtle performances.

    She has one Emmy win in five nominations. How is she underrated? I can name you at least 50 TV performers who are just as good as Anderson and either haven’t been nominated for an Emmy so far, or they have been nominated for the prize, but never won. Sorry, but I don’t feel bad for someone with an Emmy under her belt, even if there are more worthy performances in her career and weren’t recognized for them.

    Anderson would’ve been a completely unexpected nominee on all of those occasions.

    Yes but she would have been deserving for each and every one of them.

    You cannot be serious. Did you even watch? She did nothing but comment on the goings on in the same ballroom for the whole season and not even in an interesting way. I love Anderson but this is where these arguments are lost.

    I have a question. Let’s say the next season of the X-files is the best season they’ve ever done and one of the best shows of the season, would it be an Emmy contender or does it have no chance. I’d like to believe Anderson could at least get in there.

    Yeah, she literally did nothing. That was a great show though, a lot of other people in it should have been nominated.

    If it’s really the best season ever, then I think it would be pretty competitive, probably wouldn’t make series because it’s so competitive, but maybe Anderson, or some guest actors, or a writing nomination.

    Anderson was really great in the first 2 seasons on Hannibal, but I haven’t watched the 3rd. I think she should have been nominated for both those seasons and probably won for season 2.

    Yes. Her performance in the season 3 premiere was my favourite performance by a supporting actress that year, but she had about 3 more episodes that would’ve made great submissions. Also if you look at the performances nominated that year it’s not hard to believe she was worthy (the best supporting actress performances of that year were all snubbed).
    You should definitely check Hannibal out although it has it’s indulgences.
