"30 Rock" makes the list, but doesn't top it.

There are always shows that dominate the Emmys. This year, some favorites include "Westworld," "SNL," "Big Little Lies," "This Is Us," and "The Handmaid's Tale."

But while some Emmy darlings are expected and obvious, you might be surprised that some of your favorite shows of all time don't have as many Emmys as you think think - or any at all.

"Friends" only won six Emmys during its run and "Seinfeld" only won ten. How about HBO's critically-acclaimed series "The Wire?" Zero wins, two nominations.

But some audience and critic favorites do make the list for the most Emmy wins ever. Although it's not nominated this year, "Game of Thrones" is incredibly close to breaking "SNL's" record. "Breaking Bad," "Mad Men," and "Frasier" were also consistent favorites during awards season, and it shows in their double-digit wins and for some, three-digit nominations.

The 69th annual Emmy Awards begin at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Sunday night, and will air live coast-to-coast on CBS.

Here are the 19 shows with the most Emmy wins:
