Shafted: 15 TV Stand-Outs Who Deserved More Emmys

'The Wire,' Jon Hamm, MTV — you won't believe these these landmarks and legends have been given so little Emmy love

'Curb Your Enthusiasm'

Call it the Curse of Costanza. Jason Alexander never won an Emmy for his portrayal of a character based largely on Larry David, and the voting body has also overlooked David's own comedy. In fact, Curb owns the record for Most Outstanding Comedy Series nominations without winning with seven. We can understand some of the losses, like when David's show was defeated by Arrested Development in 2004 and 30 Rock in 2008… but the loss to Friends in 2002? With Larry David showing no inclination to start work on a ninth season of his HBO show, the possibility of a total Curb Your Enthusiasm shut-out seems pretty, pretty lame to us.
