Robin Wright

Wright’s work as a producer and lead actress of House of Cards has earned her seven Emmy nominations since 2013. And she headlined the final season of the Netflix drama herself after Kevin Spacey‘s firing. Hail to the chief!

Lena Headey

Speaking of female rulers, Headey has racked up four consecutive Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series nods for her performance as Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones. She got short shrift in Season 8, but perhaps voters will recognize her entire arc on the HBO drama.

George Clooney

Clooney has won two Academy Awards, one for his acting in Syriana and one for his producing of Argo, but has yet to land Emmy gold, despite two nods for his work on ER. Maybe this year he’ll add a trophy to his case for his performance in Catch-22.

Good Girls - Season 2

Christina Hendricks

Hendricks earned six consecutive Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series nominations during her Mad Men years — but zero wins. If the Emmy voters have caught her in the NBC dramedy Good Girls, perhaps they’ll right that wrong.

Jane Krakowski

Krakowski has been nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category five times now, thrice for 30 Rock and twice for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. With Season 5 of Kimmy in contention, will this be her year?

Jason Bateman

Bateman has wowed Emmy voters with his acting and directing in both comedy and drama, earning four Emmy nominations for his work on Arrested Development and Ozark, but they’ve not yet given him the trophy.

Jonathan Banks

Banks is no stranger to the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category, having accumulated five nominations in the last two decades for his work on Wiseguy, Breaking Bad, and Better Call Saul. It’s about time he won!

Jennifer Garner

More than a decade after earning four consecutive Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series nod during her Alias tenure, Garner returned to TV in the HBO comedy Camping, which might finally earn her Emmy gold this year.

Dirty John - Season 1

Connie Britton

Britton is a four-time Emmy nominee for her performances in Friday Night Lights, American Horror Story, and Nashville, and we’re hoping her turn Dirty John will make her a winner. (Too bad there’s not a category for Outstanding Hair, are we right?)

The Television Academy has the fate of TV stars in their hands, as they’re currently voting on the nominees for the 71st Emmy Awards, which will air on Fox on Sunday, September 22, at 8 p.m. ET. We’ll find out who’s on the shortlist for this year’s batch of trophies on Tuesday, July 16, at 11:30 a.m. ET when The Masked Singers Ken Jeong and The Good Place’s D’Arcy Carden announce the nominations.

In the meantime, however, we’re pinning our hopes on the TV actors below, none of whom have won Emmys despite their multiple nominations and critical adulations. Fingers crossed!
