An Emmy favorite, Daly has won six trophies — four for her lead role on “Cagney & Lacey,” one each for her supporting turns on “Christy” and “Judging Amy” — tying her for third place for winningest performers alongside Art Carney, Carl Reiner and Tim Conway. A seventh win would tie her for second place with Ed Asner, Mary Tyler Moore and Allison Janney. Cloris Leachman
