5. Andy Griffith in "The Andy Griffith Show"
Yeah, Andy Freaking Griffith was never nominated. The man was the heart and soul of "The Andy Griffith Show," one of TV's most humane sitcoms of the 1960s, but he was ignored by Emmy. The show was nominated for best comedy, Don Knotts took home five statues, and Francis Bavier won one. Maybe Griffith's manner was so convincingly effortless, the Emmy voters deluded themselves into thinking that he wasn't acting at all.
