    1985: Jane Curtin winning Comedy Lead Actress over Phylicia Rashad.
    1989: Rhea Perlman winning Comedy Supporting Actress over Estelle Getty.
    1991: BeBe Neurith winning Comedy Supporting Actress over Estelle Getty.
    2008: Jean Smart winning Comedy Supporting Actress over Vanessa Williams.

    People who won too many Emmy’s for the same role:
    Helen Hunt
    Rhea Perlman
    Doris Roberts

    I agree that The Golden Girls should have won Comedy Series again in 1988.  Both Bea Arthur and Rue McClanahan should have been nominated all seven years.

    Debra Messing was definitely undervalued at the Emmy’s.  She was winner worthy all five times she was nominated.

    Jon Cryer – His first win was horrible. The category was so refreshed with three-time champ Jeremy Piven not even nominated. It was a complete tossup with Rainn Wilson, who submitted his very best, and NPH, who submitted his second best (yet still competitive enough against Wilson’s). It was a tossup of the night and I couldn’t wait to see who it would go to. And they gave it to an actor who’s a complete lead in a terrible show. I honestly didn’t mind Cryer winning this year; he had the best submission in a very weak field and was actually in the correct category. If I didn’t follow awards season and was a friend or relative of Cryer’s and he told me he won a “Supporting” Emmy for his show, I would immediately ask, “Wait a minute…Why did you win Supporting? You’re just as much of a lead as Charlie Sheen.” Oh well. 

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus, The New Adventures of Old Chrisitne – It was now-or-never for Jane Kaczmarek, but even she was second best to Lisa Kudrow’s iconic (yes, that’s the correct adjective) turn as Valerie Cherish on The Comeback.

    Bryan Cranston’s third – Michael C. Hall had this. Globe and even SAG voters knew this. Cranston didn’t submit his best yet still won.

    –Will edit more in.

    I thought she had amazing submissions with Das Boob and Lows in the Mid-Eighties but I did not watched Patricia Heaton’s work. Do you think Patricia deserved over Debra?

    Patricia Heaton’s first win (Bad Moon Rising) over Messing (Das Boob) was totally deserved. “Bad Moon Rising” is a perfect submission and wiped the floor with every other nominee that year.

    I find Heaton’s second win (The Cannister) totally baffling, especially up against Messing’s hilarious performance in an hour-long episode (Lows in the Mid Eighties.)

    Benedict Cumberbatch for Sherlock over Matt Bomer for Normal Heart.

    And Martin Freeman over anyone from The Normal Heart (and even getting nominated over Andrew Scott who should have won!)

    LOL that’s why I deleted the post. I meant Martin Freeman but I was too lazy to edit it. You get what I meant though.

    Benedict Cumberbatch was good but he didn’t deserve it that year (he deserved it for season 2 and 4 though).

    What did u thought about Eric McCormack’s win? I liked him in Lows, but Emmy worthy?

    However, again, he was the only performance I saw that year in this category.

    I love The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, but winning Series, Directing and Writing in 2018 over the masterpiece that was the 2d season of Atlanta is unforgivable

    Wasn’t that the year when True Detective was in Drama Series instead of Limited?

    Just about EVERY Amazon Prime win in the comedy genre as a whole for the past couple of years. One show too sugary, the other, too short 2003: Edie Falco’s tantrum in ‘Whitecaps’ winning over Jennifer Garner’s season-long excellence on Alias 2005: Patricia Arquette winning best drama lead actress 1983: Cheers beating the final season of MASH winning best comedy

    Going to let this slide for now.
