My top 3 Primetime Emmy Award Winners for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series in television history who didn't win the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy are listed in order of their wins. Do you like my choices of these winners? They certainly stand out for me!

Top 3 Primetime Emmy Award Winners for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series in Television History Who Didn't Win the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy Selection Number 1: Jack Albertson as Ed Brown in Chico and the Man (1976). Henry Winkler won the Golden Globe Award for Happy Days.

My family really enjoyed watching this program, and it was definitely one of my favorite shows when Freddie Prinze was on. The show was really helped by the part Jack Albertson played as the grouchy garage owner in East Los Angeles. He really made up a great television duo with Freddie Prinze, who played Chico Rodriguez. I recall feeling really terrible when no more Chico and the Man shows were airing without Freddie Prinze because of his “accidental shooting due to the influence of Quaaludes” in early 1977, according to his biography at Wikipedia. His death had initially had been ruled a suicide.

It's one of the first show business deaths (including television history) that affected me emotionally. I had a hard time understanding why a tv star had such a troubled life off the set and died so young. Here's the theme to Chico and the Man on YouTube which I've always found really touching.

Top 3 Primetime Emmy Award Winners for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series in Television History Who Didn't Win the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy Selection Number 2: Judd Hirsch as Alex Rieger in Taxi (1981). Alan Alda won the Golden Globe Award for M*A*S*H.

Judd Hirsch as cab driver Alex Rieger was the straight man who helped keep the gang at the Sunshine Cab Company from getting too far off the path of life. Taxi was a real down to earth blue collar series that had a really riveting opening theme which you can watch here at YouTube. It seemed like his life was pretty together compared to the other characters on the show, especially compared to the conniving and skuzzy dispatcher Louie De Palma (played by Danny DeVito) and the spaced-out wacko Reverend Jim Ignatowski (played by Christopher Lloyd). But his life was far from perfect, especially since he was a once an a gambling addict and he didn't seem to want to really better himself career-wise. Judd Hirsch deserves to be one of the Primetime Emmy Award Winners since he's a quality actor!

Top 3 Primetime Emmy Award Winners for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series in Television History Who Didn't Win the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy Selection Number 3: Craig T. Nelson as Coach Hayden Fox in Coach (1992). John Goodman won the Golden Globe Award for Rosanne.

I enjoyed watching the Minnesota State University Screaming Eagles head football coach constantly act up via his explosive voice inflection and strange body movements when he got stressed out, mad, or very anxious, including during his frequent romantic spats with girlfriend and then wife Christine (Shelley Fabares).

Frankly, I don't know exactly why I liked watching this show because Hayden Fox was often a shallow “Homer Simpson” type of man that was the least in touch with his inner being as any character in television history other than Archie Bunker. Maybe it's because he was kept in line by Christine, who helped him to grow somewhat over the years like good ol' Archie did as time passed. And since I like sports, I guess the themes around football and the team helped pique my interest in Coach, too.
