11. Evan Rachel Wood on "Once and Again"
The Emmy voters tend to be stingy when it comes to teen actors such as the younger cast members on "Friday Night Lights" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." This bias was acutely obvious during the 1999-2002 run of "Once and Again," the broken-family drama from Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick, when Evan Rachel Wood was not given any props. The young actress was heartbreakingly good as the quiet victim of her parents' divorce. The show, so elegant and honest, also failed to win any best-drama nominations.
