This year’s Emmys were full of twists and surprise wins. Unfortunately, some stars who are nominated for the award, never get to bring a golden statuette home. Here is a list of stars who have been shamelessly snubbed at the Emmy Awards over the years.

1. Jason Alexander

Jason Alexander received seven consecutive nominations for Best Comedy Supporting Actor ( 1993-1998) . Yet, he was never recognized for his role as George Constanza, Seinfeld’s sidekick, on “Seinfeld”. He lost to his costar Michael Richards, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Jeter and Rip Torn. Alexander recently guest starred on “Community” as Mountain Man and the television show “Two and a Half Men” as Dr. Goodman.

2. Steve Carell

Steve Carrell was nominated for five consecutive awards for his role as Michael Scott, the regional manager, in “The Office” (2006-2011). The Office won Best Comedy in 2006, but Steve Carrell never won any awards for the show. Even in his final year on the show, when he was considered a lock for the award, Jim Parsons won for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his role on “The Big Bang Theory.” Carell’s most recent gig includes voiceover work as Gru  in ”Despicable Me”.
