Death of a Cheerleader, aka A Friend to Die For
I'm not totally sure how Death of a Cheerleader never won any Emmys, but it's totally award-worthy in my book. In this amazing '90s teen drama, Angela Delvecchio (played by Kellie Martin) is desperate to be popular and does everything she can to become friends with queen bee Stacy Lockwood (Tori Spelling). Long story short, mean girl Stacy ends up with a knife in her chest, and Angela likely goes on to become superpopular in women's prison. The creepiest thing about this movie, though, is that it was based on the real-life murder of California high school cheerleader Kirsten Costas in 1984.
