Photo gallery: Emmy's biggest snubs

Emmy biggest losers tv news

Ah, well. If the TV academy won't honor some television greats, then we will here at The Envelope. Check out the shocking photo gallery compiled by our editor Patrick Kevin Day. It spotlights Emmy's biggest losers like Bill Maher (all-time Emmy champ among snubees), Angela Lansbury (top bridesmaid among performers) and "Newhart" (most skunked among TV series).

Patrick also hails TV classics that probably never, alas, had a chance. "Emmy voters never seemed to get" "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," he notes. "The series was nominated for a boat-load of technical awards (and even won a couple) but Joss Whedon's writing received just one nomination and never won."

The TV academy was so embarrassed about the "Buffy" snub that it staged a special tribute evening during the series' final season, inviting the show's cast and behind-the-camera team to dish with academy members at its headquarters' auditorium in North Hollywood. Sarah Michelle Gellar was so furious about how voters shunned "Buffy" through the years that she drove a stake through the chumminess of the occasion: She refused to attend.
