Martin Sheen, 'Murphy Brown' (1994)

Surprisingly, Sheen never won an Emmy for playing the president on "The West Wing." He went down to defeat in the lead actor race for six of the seven seasons of that political drama. However, he did win for a guest shot on this political comedy. The decade-long-running sitcom also won guest Emmys for Colleen Dewhurst (1989, 1991) and Jay Thomas (1990, 1991). And star Candice Bergen prevailed in five of her seven consecutive lead actress races before taking herself out of the running.
