Amy Poehler vs Kristen Wiig

Show: Saturday Night Live
Rivalry years: 2009
Who won: Neither
As if acknowledging the passing of the torch, the 2009 Emmys pitted Poehler against Wiig in the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy category. It was Poehler's second and final nod for her time on SNL (she left the show in 2008), and the first for Wiig, who would be nominated two more times before leaving in 2012. Neither would win, falling victim to Kristen Chenoweth in the short-lived Pushing Daisies. (And, so far, both funny ladies' mantels remain head-scratchingly bare.)
