Tyne Daly vs Sharon Gless

Show: Cagney & Lacey
Rivalry years: 1983-1988
Who won: Daly, 4; Gless, 2
Born of the feminist movement (and a made-for-TV movie originally starring Loretta Swit opposite Daly), Cagney & Lacey made TV history as the first female-centric police-duo procedural — and for its leading ladies collectively winning six consecutive Best Actress in a Dramatic Series trophies, a still-unmatched feat. Running from 1982-1988, the co-stars were both nominated each season the show aired, with Daly winning four and Gless scoring two.
