This is an article about The Leftovers‘ actor and performances snubbed by the Emmys. They mentioned Liz as an example of performers being snubbed until they finally got a nomination for their last appearance. Elizabeth should have won all the Emmys for every year on Lost. Her performance as Juliet is still the best ever (so are all her other performances, she’s incredible!). They never give the awards to the ones who really deserve, but seriously, for Juliet it was a crime.
“Lost” fans nearly went bald pulling their hair out each year when leading man Matthew Fox continued to get snubbed at the Emmys. Fox’s Emmy drought ended for that show’s farewell season in 2010, which now leaves many awards pundits to wonder if “The Leftovers” star Justin Theroux can follow in Fox’s footsteps by picking up a goodbye bid as Best Drama Actor. Interestingly enough, both shows were co-created by Damon Lindelof and told the stories of realistic characters dealing with otherworldly situations.
There are many other examples of performers being snubbed until they finally got in for their shows’ last seasons, including Fox’s “Lost” co-star Elizabeth Mitchell in 2010, Alan Alda (“The West Wing”) in 2006, Tim Daly (“The Sopranos”) in 2007, Will Forte (“30 Rock”) in 2014 and Laurie Metcalf (“Getting On”) in 2016. Can Theroux follow this unique trend for HBO’s “The Leftovers” in the tight Best Drama Actor race?
Elizabeth Mitchell - Juliet Burke - Lost - Lost Reviews
After the suggestion to have her as guest star on Colony next year, Josh said that he would love to work with Elizabeth anytime. It would be really wonderful to see them working together again. <3
Which show would you like to see Liz on, beside Colony obviously? We’d love to see her on Designated Survivor. Every time we see Maggie Q’s role we think Liz would be perfect as Anna. HAHA, but seriously it would be so amazing to see her on that show and on anything working with Josh again.
Talking about tv shows… Hey Liz, thank you for talking to us about Rita. We are on season 2 and it’s freaking amazing!
Thanks so much Kaysi for this!

Hey everyone, look what we found! It’s a photo from the set of the last episode of Lost. Elizabeth is with someone who worked on the show (Sean Douglas). Photos from Lost are so emotional and Liz is so sweet in this one!

3. Storyline you didn’t think the fans would love, but they did.
Putting Sawyer and Juliet together. The “LeFleur” episode where we essentially said, we’re not going to give the fans the opportunity to see them flirting with each other and developing feelings over time…we’re just going to stuff it down their faces. We’re going to do a time card so like, they basically travel back in time and then the next time we see them, all within in the span of the same episode, they’ve been living amongst the Dharma initiative for a period of time, and they are now together and they are into each other.
And so it was just sort of like, this is not a build. It’s a law. It has happened. We got excited about that story because we loved Elizabeth Mitchell so much, but as we started talking about it, both Josh [Holloway] and Elizabeth were not happy. They were like, ‘Hey guys, we love you, we trust you, but it ain’t gonna work.’ And Elizabeth was just saying, ‘There is just no chemistry between us, I love Josh as a human being but you have done nothing to build this up. You haven’t laid any of the groundwork.’
And we were like, ‘That’s why we love it so much. It just comes out of nowhere. You just have to totally commit!’ And they were like, ‘We’ll do our best.’ And I just started to have that feeling in my stomach like, this is a real show killer. Like, when you put two beloved characters in an intimate relationship with each other and they don’t have chemistry, you end up making the characters look like fools and you can really piss off the audience. Then we saw the episode, and we said, we think this kind of works! But it could be a complete and utter disaster. And it wasn’t until it aired and the audience was like, ‘OK, we are OK with this, we are going to go down this road. We are now accepting Juliet into this sort of love dynamic that was previously only occupied by Jack, Sawyer and Kate.’

The first clip is a TV guide video with Lost theories and the second clip is the E!Online’s Tater Tops Awards 2007. Elizabeth was nominated as “Breakout Star”. Both videos have footages from “An Evening with Lost” Red Carpet.
In case you are wondering who won, unfortunately not Liz, but she was number 2. YATTA!
These were there results:
46% Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura, Heroes
42% Elizabeth Mitchell as Dr. Juliet Burke, Lost
And by the way Liz won as “Drama Queen” in 2009. <3
