These Famous Actors Have Never Won an Emmy Award

Belfast Premiere for Game of Thrones

On Sunday night, the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will air on Fox. Long considered television’s biggest night, Emmy competition has become increasingly stiff as high-quality shows have proliferated, thanks in part to the continued expansion of streaming services like Netflix and Amazon. For many actors, 2019 marks a final chance to take home a prize after years of playing a beloved character: shows including Game of Thrones and Veep recently ended their blockbuster runs. That means that stars like Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Alfie Allen and Gwendoline Christie are all looking to snag that elusive Emmy for their roles on the HBO behemoth.

Similarly, Veep‘s Anna Chlumsky is up for an award after five years with no luck; over at ABC’s Black-ish, Anthony Anderson has come up empty-handed for eight years, while Sandra Oh, nominated this year for Killing Eve, received many nominations but no prizes throughout her many years on Grey’s Anatomy. Some of this may change Sunday night, but even if it doesn’t, these famous actors are in good company, with plenty of other successful stars — like Steve Carrell, David Duchovny and Mindy Kaling — whose lauded small-screen performances failed to yield Emmys hardware.

Read on to see the famous actors who still have yet to win an Emmy Award.

Kit Harington

After starring as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones — which just completed its final season — Harington is up for an Emmy for Outstanding Drama Actor this year. He was nominated in 2016 as a supporting actor on the show but has never won. Thrones was Harington’s breakout TV role, and the project to which he’s devoted most of his acting career so far.

This year marks Bateman‘s first Emmy nomination, for Outstanding Drama Actor in Netflix’s Ozark. He’s also nominated this year for directing in a drama series, for the Ozark episode “Reparations.” But he’s probably best known — on TV, anyway — for playing the beloved character Michael Bluth on Arrested Development over the …read more

Raiders Injury Update: Star Offensive Lineman Misses Practice

The Oakland Raiders had several players battle injuries in Sunday’s game versus the Kansas City Chiefs. While nobody was seriously injured, there are several players that are still nursing their injuries. Most notably, Trent Brown missed Wednesday’s practice with a knee injury that forced him to miss the ending of Sunday’s game. Jon Gruden isn’t convinced that he’ll be ready for the Vikings. If he doesn’t play, that could be really bad as Brandon Parker was lit up against the Chiefs.

Dwayne Harris is another player who could miss Sunday due to an ankle sprain. Gruden said that Jalen Richard or Hunter Renfrow would fill in for him in the kick/punt returning game. Gruden also said that Josh Jacobs, Vontaze Burfict, Tyrell Williams, J.J. Nelson and Gareon Conley were all limited in Wednesday’s practice. The odds those five play on Sunday seem much higher than Brown’s or Harris’ odds.

Jon Gruden Isn’t Happy About Upcoming Long Road Trip

🔴🎥 Live: Coach Gruden and Derek Carr address the media from Alameda. https://t.co/d09PnfNKmg

— Oakland Raiders (@Raiders) September 18, 2019

The Raiders are about to embark on a road trip that sees the team away from Oakland for 48 days. It’s an absolutely brutal stretch for the young team and Jon Gruden doesn’t seem too happy about it.

“Still trying to understand how that happened,” said Gruden when asked about the upcoming road trip. “We’re going to have to deal with it. We just got to showcase our mental toughness… It’s uncommon, maybe unprecedented, maybe unrealistic that this should ever happen in pro football. I’m not excited about it, but we’ll adapt and do it the best we can.”

It’s a tough road ahead for the Raiders, but if they can come out of this stretch with a couple of wins, it will be a testament to how far the team has come since last season.

Derek Carr Praises Darren Waller & Josh Jacobs

Rookie running back Josh Jacobs has been one of the best parts of the Raider offense early in the season. He is currently fourth in the NFL in rushing and has earned really high grades from Pro Football Focus. Quarterback Derek Carr had a chance to talk about his new running back.

“He consistently runs his tail off, runs through people, finishes forward, picks …read more

‘Workers Are Tired and Frustrated and Angry.’ Uneven Economic Growth Fuels Walkouts Like the GM Strike

The labor movement has long been struggling in the U.S., as fewer workers join unions and as high-profile organizing drives, like a June attempt to unionize Volkswagen employees in Tennessee, fall short.

But American workers, feeling left behind as the economy grows around them, are joining together to demand a bigger slice of the pie. On Sept. 16, 50,000 General Motors workers walked off the job in their first strike since 2007, protesting idled plants and low wages. Nearly 8,000 Marriott workers went on strike in eight cities last year, while 31,000 supermarket employees in the Northeast did the same in early 2019. In the past year, tens of thousands of teachers walked out of their classrooms to demand better pay and funding. In all, nearly half a million workers participated in strikes and work stoppages last year, the most since 1986. The labor disruptions show no sign of abating; over 80,000 Kaiser Permanente workers in six states say they are walking out for a week starting on Oct. 14 in what would be the largest American strike since 2000.

The recent labor unrest is in part fueled by uneven economic growth. While companies are prospering and the stock market hovers near all-time highs, the benefits haven’t been felt by many workers, who are often stuck in temporary jobs with no benefits.

Paradoxically, the strong economy also emboldens workers. For a long time, the memory of the Great Recession made many afraid to jeopardize their jobs. But today there are more than 7 million job openings in the U.S., compared with just 2.2 million a decade ago, according to government data. When more jobs are available and unemployment is low, people feel more confident in demanding better pay and benefits. “Workers are tired and frustrated and angry with stagnant wages and job insecurity, and in a tight labor market they are gaining the confidence to do something about it,” says Harley Shaiken, a University of California, Berkeley, professor who studies labor. The number of workers voluntarily quitting their jobs is at its highest level in decades. “Fire me, and I’ll find another job somewhere else,” says Tracy Pease, a -Detroit-area waitress who recently testified in front of the Michigan statehouse advocating for a higher tipped minimum wage.

Many nonunion workers also want change. Those in the gig economy, many of whom are considered- independent contractors and thus not eligible to unionize or receive benefits, …read more
