Robin Wright (‘House of Cards’) just became the first actress in 10 years to pull off this rare Emmy stat
Robin Wright (“House of Cards”) just received her sixth and final Best Drama Actress Emmy nomination for playing First Lady-turned-President Claire Underwood on Netflix’s political thriller. That number puts her in good company indeed, as only seven actresses have earned six or more bids in this category for the same show, the last being Mariska Hargitay (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”) exactly 10 years ago. Hargitay would go to earn eight consecutive noms (2004-11), winning on her third bid.

Only one other person earned more Best Drama Actress nominations than Hargitay throughout her show’s run: Angela Lansbury, who received a record 12 for “Murder, She Wrote” (1985-96). Of course, Lansbury infamously never won an Emmy Award, making her one of the industry’s biggest also-rans. Even though Wright lost her first five nominations (2013-17), she won’t come anywhere near Lansbury’s record as “House of Cards” ended last year.
