With successive seasons of acclaimed TV shows come repeat Emmy nominations and wins — just ask Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who's won best actress in a comedy for her role in Veep five years in a row.
But while Louis-Dreyfus, her Veep colleagues and numerous other lauded people and programs received Emmy nominations in 2017 in the same categories they were recognized in last year, some of 2016's winners can't repeat last year's feat this year simply because they either weren't nominated in the same category or weren't nominated at all — like last year's best drama actor winner Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) or best drama series winner Game of Thrones, which famously missed the cutoff date for this year's nods.
Some fan favorites like Sarah Paulson and Maggie Smith failed to earn a single nomination this year for the first time in years, and actors Ben Mendelsohn and Sterling K. Brown earned nods but in new categories — and for Brown, a new project.
Take a look at those who took home the gold at the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards in 2016 but will not have the opportunity to receive those same trophies at the 69th Emmy Awards this September.
