This is an article about The Leftovers‘ actor and performances snubbed by the Emmys. They mentioned Liz as an example of performers being snubbed until they finally got a nomination for their last appearance. Elizabeth should have won all the Emmys for every year on Lost. Her performance as Juliet is still the best ever (so are all her other performances, she’s incredible!). They never give the awards to the ones who really deserve, but seriously, for Juliet it was a crime.
“Lost” fans nearly went bald pulling their hair out each year when leading man Matthew Fox continued to get snubbed at the Emmys. Fox’s Emmy drought ended for that show’s farewell season in 2010, which now leaves many awards pundits to wonder if “The Leftovers” star Justin Theroux can follow in Fox’s footsteps by picking up a goodbye bid as Best Drama Actor. Interestingly enough, both shows were co-created by Damon Lindelof and told the stories of realistic characters dealing with otherworldly situations.
There are many other examples of performers being snubbed until they finally got in for their shows’ last seasons, including Fox’s “Lost” co-star Elizabeth Mitchell in 2010, Alan Alda (“The West Wing”) in 2006, Tim Daly (“The Sopranos”) in 2007, Will Forte (“30 Rock”) in 2014 and Laurie Metcalf (“Getting On”) in 2016. Can Theroux follow this unique trend for HBO’s “The Leftovers” in the tight Best Drama Actor race?
