    Yes to the Ray Wise mentions! He was simply fantastic. He deserved nods for both seasons and should’ve won at least one of them.

    Unrelated, but I honestly would’ve also nominated him for an Oscar for the prequel FIRE WALK WITH ME. Him and Sheryl Lee were sensational in that!

    Guest categories were strange back then but as his wife Sarah, Grace Zabriskie would’ve been a very worthy nominee.

    Not only should Lily Rabe have been nominated she should have won that year. I’d also give a win to Sarah Paulson that year for Asylum as well but in Lead Actress

    I thought AHS : Asylum‘s actors were absolutely sweep worthy even if I personally would have given lead actress and supporting actor to Elisabeth Moss and Peter Mullan.

    Harry Hamlin for L.A. Law. All of the original cast members were nominated for their time except for him.

    I’m sure it’s been mentioned already in this thread, but I’ve been rewatching some Breaking Bad, and it blows my mind that Dean Norris was never nominated in Supporting Actor. His character undergoes so much growth and development throughout the show, and he had such good material to work with whether it be his PTSD or finding out the truth about Walter. He so deserved for the final half-season, at least. “Blood Money,” “Buried,” “Confessions,” and “To’hajiilee” were all such good tapes for him, as well as his brief but great work in “Ozymandias.” Truly a shame that he missed.

    I have to say that Harry Hamlin was one of the weaker links on L.A. Law, but it was surprising that he did not get nominated.

    Justin Hartley. His snubs reek of “slap the stud” syndrome, and it’s beyond egregious at this late stage.

    I don’t know whether one could say it was a performance in an Emmy contending show considering Small Axe ended up only getting one Emmy nomination (in cinematography) last year but I have to say that I still feel somewhat shocked and disappointed that Sharlene Whyte couldn’t even get a SINGLE nomination (not even at BAFTA) for Small Axe. She gave one of the most heartbreaking performances of the year in “Education”.

    Education itself is so underrated in the grand scheme of Small Axe.
