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.
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.”
