Over 20 seasons, Law & Order racked up over 50 Emmy nominations but despite the endless cameos by the likes of Julia Roberts, Elaine Stritch, Samuel L. Jackson, Claire Danes, Elisabeth Moss and so on, the prize the series took home most consistently on Emmy night was for cinematography (1993, 1997, 1998). As for its cast, the lead and supporting actors alike, while periodically nominated, never got the prize. Sam Waterston nominated three times — 1997, 1999 and 2000 — never won. Neither did Michael Moriarty, nominated in 1992, 1993 and 1994. But which of the show’s lineup most deserved a statuette. Vote on the nominees below.

Gold Derby senior editor Rob Licuria reports, “‘Carlos’ leading man Edgar Ramirez has already contended for SAG and Golden Globe awards for his audacious portrayal of the notorious fugitive Carlos the Jackal. Now, as the focus of the Emmy campaign by Sundance Channel, he is a frontrunner for Best TV Movie/Mini Actor.”
