The beloved "Show About Nothing" won the top prize for comedy at the 1993 Emmys.... and then was promptly pipped for the rest of its run by the Cheers spinoff starring Kelsey Grammer. Frasier won a record five Outstanding Comedy Series in a row, and a record 37 Emmys total. That includes four Best Actor statues for Grammer and co-star David Hyde Pierce — which helped prevent Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander from ever winning their own. Michael Richards won three Best Supporting Actor prizes for playing Kramer, while Julia Louis-Dreyfus began her long Emmy run with one win for Elaine.
