ABSTRACT
The article discusses why some established long-running shows television shows never once get a single Emmy nomination. The author cites some TV shows which experienced same fate, including "ER," "'Law & Order," and "Gilmore Girls." According to Lauren Graham, star of "Gilmore Girls," it is not about the popularity of the show but according to the people's choice which is subjective. The author declares his point that the primary driving force for staying focused and growing cannot be found in any awards but by those moments of personal growth and satisfaction.
