The Fonz got nominated three times, but what about Richie Cunningham? From 1974 to 1984, Ron Howard carried sitcom Happy Days as its leading man. He and Henry Winkler, who played bad boy Fonzie, both gained national fame and their share of screaming fans. But when it came to the Emmys, Winkler was recognized with three nominations, while Howard got zilch. (He also never received a nod for playing Opie Taylor on The Andy Griffith Show.) Still, Howard's career hasn't been too shabby since, winning acclaim and statuettes for directing films such as A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon and Apollo 13.
