IT’S ABOUT TIME:
David Morse. Morse (pictured left) broke your heart every week during the 1982-1988 run of NBC’s “St. Elsewhere.” But was he nominated? Nooooo. It took a guest shot role on another hospital drama, Fox’s “House,” to win this underrated actor some Emmy appreciation.
Mary-Louise Parker. Emmy voters felt so bad for snubbing her last year for “Weeds” that they gave her two noms, this year, one for “Weeds,” one for the Oxygen movie “The Robber Bride.”
This category can also encompass the new names and faces Emmy voters let into the tent this year, including “30 Rock”; “Ugly Betty” and America Ferrera; “Heroes” and Masi Oka; Neil Patrick Harris of “How I Met Your Mother.”
