Vince Gilligan

While Breaking Bad and its actors have been rightfully honored at the Emmys since the show debuted in 2008, its mastermind Vince Gilligan has never won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing or Outstanding Director — despite a handful of nominations that even goes back to his exceptional work on The X-Files. However, this might be the year the losing streak ends for Gilligan as he's up for Emmys in both categories once again, so hopefully the showrunner finally will receive the stand-alone award he deserves. Either that or he can hope that his amusing appearance on Community somehow earns him an Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series nomination next year. (Spoiler alert: It won't.)
