    So as we all know, for better or for worse, the Emmys have become incredibly biased towards certain shows. One of those shows is the definitive sketch show Saturday Night Live, which in its qualification for comedy acting Emmys has been ratching up nominations for its cast, including Kenan Thompson, Kate McKinnon, and Aidy Bryant.

    We could – and have – debate all day about how the Emmys have ruined themselves by focusing on a select few shows, but I don’t really want to touch on that can of worms here (to clarify though, it’s total crap overall). Instead, I want to look back over the years, look at various FORMER cast members, and see which ones could have been nominated during their SNL tenure had the system been the same. Here’s just a few names (for the sake of space I’ve avoided putting actors that were nominated for Emmys elsewhere, though you’re totally free to point them out):

    • Beck Bennett
    • Chris Farley
    • Ana Gastayer
    • Darrell Hammond
    • Chris Kattan
    • Taran Killam
    • Jon Lovitz
    • Norm MacDonald
    • Tim Meadows
    • Seth Meyers
    • Dennis Miller
    • Bobby Moynihan
    • Laraine Newman
    • Chris Parnell
    • Jay Pharoah
    • Andy Samberg
    • Adam Sandler

    SNL needs to go I’m afraid
    All those Guest Acting wins are slowly killing me, i could say supporting too but at least they lose there 90% of the time

    Emmy winner Matthew Macfadyen!!

    They should bring back the Variety Performance category. Why is that so hard to do?

    Like I said guys, I really don’t want to delve into the controversy. I’d rather not be negative this early in the season.

    They should bring back the Variety Performance category. Why is that so hard to do?

    Probably due to a lack of competition from other shows, with any other attempts by similar shows only lasting one season.
