Emmys 2012: Bryan Cranston, Betty White and 8 More Multiple Emmy Award Winners (GALLERY)

Emmys 2012: Drama Actors
Celebuzz sizes up the competition.
When Mary Tyler Moore won an Emmy for her portrayal of Laura Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show in 1963, she famously said, “I know this will never happen again.” She couldn’t have been more wrong. Moore is now a seven-time Emmy winner.

But she’s not the only Emmy darling to take home multiple statues. Michael J. Fox won three Emmys for his portrayal of Alex P. Keaton in Family Ties. Not to mention that Bryan Cranston has won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series three consecutive times for Breaking Bad. On Sunday night, he’ll be up for his fourth award.

Before Walter White entered the picture, Dennis Franz won a record-setting four Emmys during his stint on the ABC police drama NYPD Blue.

Representing TV’s leading ladies, Candice Bergen won five Emmys for her work on CBS’ Murphy Brown. She eventually took her name out of the running, giving another funny woman — Helen Hunt — a shot to take home Emmy gold. Hunt went on to win four consecutive Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

And who could forget golden girl Betty White? This national treasure has seven Emmys to her name — one for her iconic performance as the lovable Rose Nylund on Golden Girls.
