John Goodman (‘Roseanne’) could extend a dubious record with an eighth Best Comedy Actor Emmy nomination

Despite seven Best Comedy Actor nominations for playing Dan Conner, John Goodman never took home the Emmy during “Roseanne”’s initial nine-season run. It wasn’t until 2007 that he won his first Emmy for his guest appearance on “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.” With the return of “Roseanne,” Goodman could finally win for his most famous TV role, but if he suffers yet another loss, he’ll have sole ownership of a title no one wants: most nominations in the category without a single win.

Goodman, who is seventh in our predictions, is right now tied with two other unlucky seven-time losers: Hal Linden and Matt LeBlanc. Like Goodman, all of Linden’s nominations were for the same character: the title role on “Barney Miller.” LeBlanc accrued his nominations over two shows,

‘Roseanne’ flashback: Laurie Metcalf rubs her Emmy in Roseanne’s face [Watch]
Roseanne,” which returned Tuesday with nine new episodes, didn’t win its first Emmy until 1992, for its fourth season. It went to Laurie Metcalf, who took home her first of three straight Best Supporting Comedy Actress Emmys — and she definitely didn’t let Roseanne Barr forget it.

A month after the Emmys, the sitcom aired its milestone 100th episode, “The Dark Ages,” which ended with one of the show’s trademark fourth wall breaks: Metcalf is polishing her new hardware on the couch next to Barr, who starts wrestling her for it. John Goodman soon pops in and they chase Metcalf off the stage. Barr’s then-husband Tom Arnold joins in on the fun too.

John Goodman movies: 20 greatest films ranked from worst to best, including ‘The Big Lebowski,’ ‘Barton Fink’ …
John Goodman shockingly never won an Emmy for his role as working-class father Dan Conner in “Roseanne” despite competing seven consecutive times as Best Comedy Actor for the ABC sitcom (1989-1995). He did eventually win as Best Drama Guest Actor in 2007 for “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” but now he could finally cash in that “Roseanne” Emmy I.O.U. with the upcoming series revival, premiering on Tuesday, March 27. But Goodman hasn’t only made a name for himself on TV. In honor of his return to the small screen, let’s take a look back at some of his best big-screen performances. Tour through our photo gallery above of Goodman’s 20 greatest films, ranked from worst to best.

Surprisingly (and criminally), not one of these roles brought Goodman an Oscar nomination. He did compete at the Golden Globes as Best Supporting Actor for “Barton Fink” (1991), but the academy

John Goodman (‘Roseanne’) eyes second Emmy victory, first for portrayal of Dan Conner

John Goodman (‘Roseanne’) eyes second Emmy victory, first for portrayal of Dan Conner
Over his remarkable career on the small screen, John Goodman has earned a total of 11 Emmy nominations, including seven for his role as Dan Conner on “Roseanne,” the series that launched his career. However, none of those seven bids proved to be lucky for him. His sole Emmy win came in Best Guest Drama Actor for “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” in 2007.

While Goodman never won an Emmy for his acclaimed turn on “Roseanne,” leading lady Roseanne Barr won once while scene-stealer Laurie Metcalf took home three Best Comedy Supporting Actress trophies. This year, with the much-anticipated revival of the series, Goodman could finally win an Emmy for portraying the Conner family patriarch.

Despite his unsuccessful run at the Emmys, Goodman was no amateur at selecting exceptional episodes of “Roseanne” for voters’ consideration.

2018 Emmy predictions for Best Comedy Series: Could revivals like ‘Will & Grace’ and ‘Roseanne’ dominate?

This year at the Emmys, everything old may be new again in Best Comedy Series. Several TV revivals from yesteryear are back in contention, including NBC’s “Will & Grace,” ABC’s “Roseanne,” HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and, pending a release date, Netflix’s “Arrested Developement.” The good news for these shows is that three-time champ “Veep” won’t be eligible at the 2018 Emmys. Neither will “Master of None,” back-to-back winner for Best Comedy Writing. The bad news? The other five nominees are all looking strong to return: “Atlanta,” “Black-ish,” “Modern Family,” “Silicon Valley” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”

Thomas Schlamme Elected Directors Guild President

Thomas Schlamme Elected Directors Guild President
Veteran TV director Thomas Schlamme has been elected president of the Directors Guild of America for a two-year term, succeeding Paris Barclay.

Schlamme was selected by acclamation of the 147 delegates at the DGA’s convention on Saturday at DGA headquarters in Los Angeles.

Barclay announced earlier this year that he would not seek a third term in accordance with the DGA tradition of presidents only serving two terms. The DGA represents more than 17,000 members.

Schlamme has been on the DGA national board since 2005 and was most recently third VP. He was co-chair of the 2014 and 2017 negotiating committees together with secretary-treasurer Michael Apted.

In February, the DGA honored Schlamme with the Robert B. Aldrich Achievement Award for service to the DGA and its membership. Schlamme joined the DGA in 1978.

Emmys Flashback: When Aaron Sorkin's 'SNL' Send-Up Earned Noms But Fizzled

Saturday Night Live, which could have its best year for Emmy nominations in decades — thanks to Donald Trump — was honored back in 2006 in a way few TV shows ever have been: Aaron Sorkin created a series about it. Still hot off his success with The West Wing, the writer-producer developed Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, an hourlong drama centered on the workings of a Los Angeles-based, SNL-like show.

From the beginning, Studio 60 had major buzz. There was a bidding war between NBC and CBS, with the Peacock winning by paying what was reportedly "a...

Amanda Peet Revisits Studio 60, Bent, Good Wife and Togetherness, Teases Brockmire's 'Very Feminist' Episode
Amanda Peet’s latest project, the under-the-radar Brockmire, is about to give birth to its most politically incorrect episode yet.

On the IFC comedy, the Studio 60 and Togetherness standout plays Jules, the owner of a minor-league baseball team who hires (and subsequently falls for) disgraced Mlb announcer Jim Brockmire (played by man-of-a-million-voices Hank Azaria). After revealing to the title character that she was pregnant with his child at the end of Episode 5, Wednesday’s half-hour (airing at 10/9c) finds Jules and Brockmire mulling over whether they want to have the child, or whether she should have an abortion.

CBS Alternative Programming Chief Chris Castallo to Exit

CBS Alternative Programming Chief Chris Castallo to Exit
Chris Castallo is poised to exit CBS after nearly four years as the network’s head of alternative programming.

Castallo, exec VP of alternative programming, will stay on until a successor is named. A CBS spokesman confirmed Castallo intends to leave when his contract expires in September.

It’s understood that Castallo and CBS Entertainment president Glenn Geller have been discussing a transition for some time. CBS’ search for a new alternative programming chief is complicated by the fact that Geller is on a medical leave of absence as he recovers from a mild heart attack.

Castallo’s departure from the Eye is described as an amicable parting. CBS has failed to launch any lasting unscripted franchises on Castallo’s watch as department head. Most recently, the manhunt competition “Hunted” was a disappointing performer for the network despite a big premiere send-off after the Afc Championship game in January.

At the same time, Castallo

I’m 100% Behind Aaron Sorkin Screenwriting Superhero Movies

It’s hard to picture the man who wrote titles such as “A Few Good Men,” “The American President,” “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “The Social Network,” “Moneyball” and “Steve Jobs,” taking his skills to comic book films. Sorkin also created and wrote most of the episodes of “The West Wing,” “SportsNight,” “Studio 60” and “The Newsroom.” But now he might be throwing his name into the collective money making machine ring of Marvel and DC. Recently at CinemaCon Sorkin made mention of his recent plans. “I happen to have meetings coming up with both DC and Marvel,” Sorkin told ComicBook.com while on

Everyone’s Favorite Everyman John Goodman Receives Walk of Fame Honor

Everyone’s Favorite Everyman John Goodman Receives Walk of Fame Honor
With his jocular, yet authoritative voice matched with a wide grin and gleaming eyes, John Goodman could very well be the definition of a character actor. The guy filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen routinely cast as the sidekick who lands some of the most memorable lines in their movies or whom Lorne Michaels frequently calls up to host and guest star on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” With the latter, it helps that he seems comfortable with dressing in drag.

And, despite being a marquee name with a scroll of TV, film, and theater credits, Goodman is perfectly fine with this distinction. “I still consider myself a character actor,” Goodman says. “I think it’s a good thing. I think every actor’s a character actor to a certain extent. Character actor has a lot of different definitions. I’m just a mutt. I just keep going for the bone.
