At least, until Robin Wright (“House of Cards”) this year.

Last month Wright received her sixth and final Emmy bid for playing First Lady-turned-President Claire Underwood on Netflix’s political thriller. She was previously nominated from 2013 to 2017, missing out last year because the show didn’t air due to all of the behind-the-scenes drama with co-star Kevin Spacey.
