Snubbed! 18 Actors Who Surprisingly Never Won Emmys

From Steve Carell to Seinfeld, these TV stars received the award-show cold shoulder

Jerry Seinfeld

The show about nothing earned namesake star Jerry Seinfeld, well, nothing – at least in terms of acting Emmys. (He did technically win one year – as a producer on the show for Outstanding Comedy Series in 1992, and was nominated five times for Outstanding Lead Actor.) Also empty-handed? Co-star Jason Alexander, who was beaten three times in the Outstanding Supporting Actor – Comedy category by fellow Seinfelder Michael Richards. Julia Louis-Dreyfus also has something to gloat about with her single win for Outstanding Supporting Actress. But in true George Costanza style, Alexander stands as the show's lone star who failed to win a Golden Globe.
