    This is a current performance that’s sadly being overlooked by… well, everyone. Alana Arenas in David Makes Man has honestly been killing it since the very first episode. The second season is finally airing now, and she’s just been proving once again how great of an actress she is. I nominated her for my personal lead actress drama award in 2020, but she’s had absolutely zero recognition outside of lil’ old me. Not even at the irrelevant awards (you know who you are). It’s a shame that literally no one seems to be watching this show, because if this was more popular I’m sure she’d be constantly mentioned as a highlight. I’m really gonna need some bigger show to pick her up once DMM inevitably ends, because she deserves to be more in the spotlight. Basically, watch it for her and also because it’s just an incredible show. The first season in particular is a pretty perfect season of television (and my personal drama series winner of 2020).

    I finished bingeing the first season of Better Things this week (it’s fantastic btw, how Pamela Adlon doesn’t have multiple Emmys for her work on this show never mind writing and directing nominations is honestly beyond me) and I have to say as someone who wasn’t that big a fan of her much before, I’ve really really been impressed by Celia Imrie here. She really just perfectly captures the realism of the show and of comedy in her performance to really deliver a down to earth and hilarious performance. I mean I’ve laughed out loud so many times when she’s come on screen on this show already and honestly I think it’s because of how real her performance is and how eerily similar her character is to some relatives of mine in real life.

    Melinda Page Hamilton (Anna Draper)

    The fact AMC didn’t even submit her for the Emmys for either of the seasons she was on the show was absolutely criminal. She really gave such a raw performance that made you care for the character as deeply as Don did and really elevated an already all time great season of television with season 4.

    I’ve finished The Shield some days ago, and one of the highlights of the show for me was Gleen Close performance and yet few people talk about that.

    There were quite a few people on here back in 2005 rooting for Glenn Close to win the Drama Lead Actress Emmy award. Also, CCH Pounder deserved more than one Emmy nomination for her role on The Shield. Anthony Anderson would have been a deserving nominee in 2005 for his role as drug lord Antwon Mitchell. Walton Goggins should have received a number of nominations for his role on The Shield.

    I agree. CCH Pounder was fantastic and should have been nominated (and win) more times. Walton Goggins from season 5 to 7 was win worthy. Michael Chiklis was fantastic all along and besides his win in season 1, I think he should have won for the final season. But for me the most atrocious emmys snub of The Shield was Forest Whitaker in season 5 (acting wise it was The Shield at it’s peak). Not only should he have been nominated but also win for that season. It was for me one of the best supporting performances i’ve ever saw on Tv.

    Leah Remin in King of Queens. I’ve been rewatching King of Queens and still find the show hilarious. I find it infuriating that only Kevin James was the one nominated for the show and only once. While he was hilarious on the show he was overshadowed by Jerry Stiller playing Arthur with a nice touch of madness and especially Leah Remini who was on fire every time she was on screen, and she always made it believable the things they would go through and when given the chance like especially in the last season of the show she really able to utilize her emotional depth as well as her comedic brilliance to play off of one another beautifully. The three main leads should have been nominated every season and all of them should have won multiple times but as I said before no one was more deserving than the Incomprable Leah Remini

    I agree that Forest Whitaker should have been nominated for season 5. I could not get over Anthony Anderson in season 4 of The Shield. There was a lot of detective work in trying to figure out the drama series that made the top ten in 2006 for the panel viewing at the Emmys.

    Liza Weil from How To Get Away With Murder. Liza had a couple of seasons where she would have been worthy of a nomination.

    Tichina Arnold is very underrated and I wonder if she would have gotten nominated for Everybody Hates Chris if she submitted in supporting actress in a Comedy. I heard that she submitted in Lead Actress for the first season and I am assuming that this was continued throughout the run of the series.

    The recent lovefest for Melanie Lynskey right now got me thinking about this. She was the only major main adult performer on Two and Half Men never to get an Emmy nomination.

    Not really that shocking considering there was only 5 slots at the shows Emmy peak and she was already competing against to more broadly comic co-stars, whilst she was playing the deadpan straightman but still disappointing.
