The series was nominated for 68 Emmy Awards (winning 10) and 15 Golden Globes (winning 3) over the course of its nine-season, 180-episode run.
For season eight, Seinfeld was nominated for nine Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Supporting Actress (Louis-Dreyfus), Outstanding Supporting Actor (Alexander), Outstanding Guest Actor (Stiller), with Michael Richards taking home the statuette for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. Other accolades include a Golden Globe nomination for Best TV Series - Comedy/Musical, three Writers Guild of America nominations (winning for "The Fatigues"), four Screen Actors Guild nominations (with Louis-Dreyfus winning for Actress and the cast taking home Best Ensemble), and a People's Choice Award for Favorite Television Comedy Series.
