Angela Lansbury
Was Nominated
For 18 Emmy
Awards But
Never Won
Angela Lansbury’s career began in 1944, and the legendary actress has almost 100 credits to her name. The late actress made a strong impact on viewers, from her first film role in “Gaslight” to her most memorable and iconic TV role in “Murder, She Wrote,” which is why many people may be surprised to learn that the actress was snubbed for all 18 of her Emmy nominations.
Lansbury received 12 nominations for portraying Jessica Fletcher in “Murder, She Wrote” and an additional six nominations for roles in shows like "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" and "The Blackwater Lightship.” Still, she never took home the prize, being passed over for the award time and time again.
Lansbury was given an honorary award in 1996, the year "Murder, She Wrote" wrapped up its final season, showing that she was still highly respected by the Television Academy. All the same, it's surprising to find out that Lansbury never earned a Best Actress award from the Emmys during her storied career.
