Best Shows that never won an EMMY Award
Television Academy voters have the chance to right longstanding wrongs at this year’s 74th Primetime Emmy Awards, airing on NBC and streaming on Peacock on September 12.
My So-Called Life cancellation after a solitary season was that Emmy voters never got to redeem themselves & give this ABC high-school drama awards it deserved. It ranks high on list of 90 Best Shows.
As if Parks and Rec weren’t impressive enough, NBC comedy high-concept premise Kristen Bell’s character mistakenly gaining entrance to a heaven-like afterlife. The show had 13 nominations & no win.
Despite scary-good performances from Katey Sagal & other, this addicting FX drama about a criminal motorcycle gang only ever got Emmy nominations in technical categories and never took home a prize.
We were either cracking up or tearing up while watching Parenthood. Over 6 seasons, we bore witness as Braverman clan grow up, break down, & come together again. But show only ever got one nomination.
Amy Poehler got six consecutive Lead Actress in a Comedy Series nominations for her portrayal of an idealistic public servant in Parks and Recreations but did anyone from the NBC show ever win? Knope!
Emmy Awards were indeed final frontier for this seminal scifi series. It wasn’t until 2018 Governors Awards that 60s-era NBC show which served as Big Bang for media universe got love from TV Academy.
