Oh ok.

So yeah, Murray is the best SNL actor

He probably has the best set of movies too. Caddy shack, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day...pretty good

Not SNL, but Jim Carrey won awards and he was on In Living Color.

Bill Murray has won several awards including a BAFTA (British equivalent of the Oscars), an Emmy (for SNL) and a Golden Globe but has not won an Oscar.

Even Dan Aykroyd has an Oscar nom for Driving Miss Daisy and he also has an Emmy.

You'd have to dig deep in this thread. Maybe like 16 hours ago, to find an answer.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and her 5 Emmys and 2 Golden Globes would appreciate a mention.

That was another one of those "Huh... didn't know she was a cast member" people.

Tina Fey has a pile of Emmys, including a Best Actress. So that's 2 in about 5 minutes of searching.

Well... 2 in 5 minutes of searching vs the 40 that you can just name off the top of your head that aren't critically acclaimed. Again, if you're looking for award winning actors, my brain doesn't immediately go to SNL.

Many of the Emmys are for writing. Or hosting an awards show.

Yeah, lots of writing awards, because a lot of the SNL people write material. Most are not "actors," in the traditional sense and don't make very good actors. I think that was c2i's point.

For work they did on SNL, I think 5 or 6 of the original NRFPTP received at least one Emmy nom (not sure if any won). After that, other cast nominees were Murphy, Lovitz (I think), Carvey (a bunch of times), Myers, Shannon, Ferrell and Fey. Do not remember if any of them won, but odds are at least one of them probably did.

At this point, I would like to point out that DIAB also won an Emmy for best original music and lyrics.

It's especially true for the newcomers, but you generally won't even make it on to the broadcast unless you write your own material.

My point is essentially this... when I think of the greats of hockey, my mind does not go to the Florida Panthers. Does that mean the Florida Panthers have never had good hockey players? (In before someone lists all the good hockey players Florida has had..) No, it doesn't mean that at all, it's just not where my brain tends to take me. Same for SNL. Have they had some big name good actors? Sure...but for the most part, no.

Considering they've been on the air for four decades........

Where does your mind go, then?

I think everyone agrees with c2i, but it's turned into a fun exercise in finding legit actors amongst the dregs
