TV Stars Who Deserve Emmys but Have Never Been Nominated — IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: Who is the one performer deserving of an Emmy but has never been nominated?

(Of all time. This is open to any actors on canceled TV shows also, not just current contenders.)

Ben Travers (@BenTTravers), IndieWire

It’s Justin Theroux. It’s Eva Green. It’s Aya Cash. It’s Nick Offerman. It’s Constance Wu. It’s any number of singular, stand-out performances infuriatingly ignored over the course of multiple seasons. Each of these actors played the same role for three or more seasons in “The Leftovers,” “Penny Dreadful,” “You’re the Worst,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “Fresh Off the Boat,” respectively, and the TV Academy’s refusal to acknowledge their top-tier evocations is maddening.

21 Worst Dads in Film and TV, From Homer Simpson to Darth Vader (Photos)
Worst dads on tv and film

Homer Simpson, “The Simpsons

Homer Simpson is TV’s most famous dad but not exactly a role model. He may be good at heart but some of his favorite past times include drinking, laying on the couch, and strangling his son Bart whenever he gets out of line.

Daniel Plaineview, “There Will Be Blood

Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis) says it straight out, “he’s an oilman”; he puts family second behind his own greed. That becomes abundantly clear as his relationship deteriorates with his adopted son throughout the movie.

Al Bundy, “Married With Children

Ed O’Neill was a very different kind of family man on “Married With Children” than he is now on “Modern Family.” Al’s cynical outlook on life has a hard time not having an effect on his kids.

Frank Gallagher, “Shameless

Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy) is a drunk,

How You Can Watch “Married with Children” Online

Before we go into the more mundane details about how you can watch “Married with Children” online, a couple of questions require answering. The first is, how can a sitcom that is more than 30 years old continue to be popular, getting an 8.1 IMDb rating? The second is, how does Ed O’Neill, a paunchy, balding man, manage to get paired with two beauties that are separated by three decades?

Sony Scripted TV Veteran Jeff Lerner Exiting (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Jeff Lerner, the executive who shaped Sony Pictures Television’s scripted remakes business, bringing “Everybody Loves Raymond” to Russia and “Mad About You” to Argentina, is leaving the studio, Variety has learned.

The outgoing executive is well-regarded in international drama circles, notably in the scripted formats business. In Sony’s case, that effort has led to foreign broadcasters making local versions of “Breaking Bad” and a host of other U.S. drama and sitcoms.

Everybody Loves Raymond” got the remake treatment in India, Israel, the Middle East, and Poland, among other territories, during Lerner’s tenure. He was also instrumental in launching Spt’s Russian business and its Moscow office, landing a host of Russian deals and often bringing in U.S. writing talent to help shape the local series.

Russia’s version of “Everybody Loves Raymond,” titled “The Voronins,” has run to more than 400 episodes and 20 seasons. Other U.

The Real ‘Roseanne’ Effect: How It Could Energize Market for TV Comedies

  • Variety
The morning after “Roseanne” made its return to television, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey opened an email containing Nielsen’s metered-market ratings — the day’s first indicator of how the previous night’s primetime broadcast offerings were received. What she saw did not make sense.

“I looked at the numbers and I thought, ‘That can’t be right,’” Dungey told Variety. “I honestly was floored. I thought that it was a typo and how can that be.” She remained in disbelief until shortly after 8 a.m., when the fast-national numbers arrived, bringing what happened into focus. “I was like, this is actually real. This is really real.”

“Roseanne” averaged a 5.2 live-plus-same-day rating in the important 18-49 demo and 18.4 million total viewers — both figures higher than those of any other scripted broadcast program this season on a non-Super Bowl night, and better than the family comedy’s original series finale did 21 years ago.

It's been nearly three years since the world found out that Josh Duggar cheated on his wife using the Ashley Madison website for extramarital affairs, and that he molested his sisters as a teenager, and we're still not over it. Most marriages would crumble after learning just one of those two things, and yet Anna Duggar is still very much with her man. Here's what we know about their relationship now. The eldest of the Duggar kids has been mostly out of the limelight since 2015, but it seems like not much has changed behind-the-scenes.

Is Jana Duggar Shading Her Sisters by Saying She Won't "Get Married to the First One That Comes Along"?

It's hard to be the odd one out in your family, and it's even harder when you're a 28-year-old Duggar gal with no husband. Jana Duggar still being single has lead to tons of speculation about her love life, including the theory that she might be a lesbian. However, in this clip from 2016, Jana admits that she does want a husband, she just hasn't met the right guy. And fans think she's actually shading her siblings for not being pickier when it comes to their mates! When a producer asked a 26-year-old Jana where she sees herself in five years, she seems to choke up a little bit. "I don't really know what the next five years look like," she said.

Y'all, How Messed up Is It That Joy-Anna Duggar Let Her Sister Jill Know She Was Pregnant via Text?

On this week's brand new episode of Counting On, fans watched as Joy-Anna Duggar happily bopped from house to house and told her family she was expecting baby No. 1 with Austin Forsyth. Unfortunately, Jill Duggar missed the memo. She and Jana were the only two who received a text about the news, leaving many to wonder — where is Jill? Oddly enough, she doesn't live that far away. In fact, although she and her disgraced husband, Derick Dillard, reportedly downsized, they're still living in Arkansas as far as we know. And even if they did happen to live states away, Joy and Austin could've at least taken the time to video chat with them — like they did with Jinger and Jeremy. That being said, our guess is that Joy was forced to text her big sis since Jill and Derick were fired from the show last year and are no longer
