I have a hunch that Allison Janney will join this club very soon.August 12, 2020 at 4:57 pm #1203642661
Kathy Bates won for Guest Actress Comedy – Two and a Half Men and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Television Movie for American Horror Story: Coven. Kathy would have been a worthy winner for for Drama Lead Actress in Harry’s Law.August 12, 2020 at 5:00 pm #1203642666

Yep. She could have very well joined this year had she been nominated for Bad Education.

I just realize that if Linney wins for ”Ozark”, she will have Emmys in Drama, Comedy (Frasier) and Miniseries (Wild Iris, John Adams and The Big C) categories.
As far as my research went, the only other performer to have awards in those genres is:
– Comedy: Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series (Malcolm in the Middle, 2x)
Outstanding Single Performance by a Supporting Actress in a Comedy or Drama Series (Mary Tyler Moore 2x)
– Drama: Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series (Promised Land)
– Limited: Outstanding Single Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role (A Brand New Life)
+ she two awards in Variety categories.
– Ed Asner has Emmys for Comedy and Drama categories (both for Lou Grant) and has one Emmy for ”Roots”, but he won in a ”guest” category. Does it count as a win for Limited? If so, I know those two people.
Is there anyone missing?
I would say Edward Asner counts. All the Roots cast were put in “single appearance” categories. Odd since most of them are in more than one episode so its not really a single appearance. I guess because nobody appeared in all the episodes they weren’t put in the regular limited series categories. It was a strange way the classified them. Plus you have heavy dramatic performances going up against some comedic ones.August 13, 2020 at 5:56 am #1203643501
Thank you for defending Linney’s win for “The Big C.” She should have easily won over Melissa McCarthy in the comedy category (one of the biggest WTF moments, IMO). Her win in the limited category for the series…sure, they played the category game, but she deserved it for the work she put in that year. Especially that final episode. I don’t think I can rewatch “The Big C” for that reason (and haven’t watched it since it aired)–too good and too sad. This is also coming from someone who agrees that “Asylum” is Jessica Lange’s best AHS season.August 13, 2020 at 8:27 am #1203643652
Linney should have won the comedy lead actress instead of Melissa and Tbh as much as I love Lange, Moss had the best performance in top of the lake IMOAugust 13, 2020 at 8:46 am #1203643677This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 13, 2020 at 9:21 am #1203643744
The real answer is no.August 13, 2020 at 9:48 am #1203643778
Linney should win hands down but it’s probably gonna be ZendayaSeptember 20, 2020 at 7:04 pm #1203722968
Congratulations, Uzo Aduba you did that!September 21, 2020 at 2:23 pm #1203726211
Uzo Aduba did what others couldn’t and did it with just four nominations.September 21, 2020 at 2:39 pm #1203726248
Yes I am very confident she will win
This didn’t age well…
