We often talk about the above-the-line folks who get snubbed (like Sarah Michelle Gellar from “Buffy”), but we don’t discuss as often the below-the-line achievements that get left out (like the songs from “Once More with Feeling” from “Buffy”). What other Creative Arts snubs have been frustrating — and they don’t even have to be “Buffy” related. 🙂
In recent years, the lack of crafts nominations for “Hannibal” has been terrible. It’s not the kind of show that usually attracts attention in the top categories, but how has it missed races like cinematography, production design, sound, editing, and makeup. Or even stunt coordination, supporting visual effects. Plenty of other shows without major support have at least been nominated for Creative Arts Awards (like “Daredevil,” “Gotham,” and “The Walking Dead” this year). Doesn’t have to be all of those categories, but not even one?August 18, 2015 at 5:39 pm #358615

Game of Thrones in main title theme music.
Holy crap, I didn’t even know about that. That’s the kind of thing where thinking back I just kinda assumed it must of won since it’s gotta be the most iconic and memorable theme music on TV right now, but it wasn’t even nominated. I’m not even the biggest “GoT” fan, but that’s pretty embarrassing.August 18, 2015 at 6:44 pm #358617

I mentioned it in the live video yesterday and realized that I forgot to mention it here that the first season of Game of Thrones was snubbed for Modern Family in production design because building seven kingdoms was apparently just not enough.
