    I'm sure I never missed an episode. Another great song and dance man left to history.

    He never won an Emmy

    Despite starring on two of the most iconic series in TV history, “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Matlock,” Andy Griffith shockingly never earned a single Emmy nomination for either show. (By contrast, his “Andy Griffith” co-star Don Knotts took home five Emmys for his supporting role as bumbling deputy Barney Fife.) Griffith’s lone Emmy nomination came in 1981 for the TV movie “Murder in Texas”… and he didn’t win for that, either.

    But he did receive a very special honor in 2005: the Presidential Medal of Freedom (left), the highest award a civilian can earn in this country.

    I have to agree. I used to watch Andy and Matlock and enjoyed them all. When I saw him doing adds for that Socialist Pig running this country and promoting the Obamacare lies, I lost all respect for him. One less vote for Obama, which ain't such a bad thing.

    It is sad whenever anyone passes, but I too have no respect for him. He was a Lefto commie nutjob in the end............another rich idiot thinking they know whats best for us all. A true hypocrite through and through.
