Perhaps one of the most underrated television shows to ever be on the air, Shameless has changed the game for programming and broken boundaries the way most shows would never dare to go. Picking up in the family dramedy category where Roseanne left off and sprinkling in a bit of Party Of Five , Shameless offers the kind of in-depth look into what is a "real family" that people are sometimes scared to admit that they relate to. Harrowingly real while still somehow always the most hilarious show on television, Shameless has consistently and shockingly been snubbed by many award shows for nearly seven years- and yet, poised young actress Emma Kenney holds her head higher than the slight. The maturing talent that has grown up playing the sweet-turned-angsty Deb on the SHOWTIME hit shrugs off her show's lack of award recognition with a dignified sophistication far beyond her years. Deeply understanding that Shameless has found a niche audience and that it truly touches the lives of so many, Kenney is proud to be on a show that not only takes such bold risks, but that also has become such a powerful part of the lives of its fans.
