Five Great Shows That Never Won Emmys

Paul January 16, 2013 3


With the Oscars coming up, it’s important to remember that awards are tricky things. The Emmys are more or less the TV Oscars, and so I thought I’d look back at quality shows that never won an award for either Best Drama or Best Comedy. Generally, I tried to steer away from shows that are still on the air, as there still could be hope.

Some of these might be understandable, but by the end of the list we’ve just reached outright blasphemy. See if you agree and check out the list below:

    Chiklis won lead actor in 2002. Maybe do a little fact checking next time?

    • Ethan M Lindevald

      They are clearly talking about the Show itself not winning an Emmy. Not Individual Actors! So Maybe you should comprehend the Headline or the Topic before leaving Snarky Comments…Getting Sick of Know-it-all Trolls!
