    I am asking this because I have been catching up on Jane the Virgin and I would love it to get noms even though I doubt it will happen. I also am hoping for noms for rectify, Outlander, and the leftovers. Has there ever been a case like this before? I just want hope, that’s all.

    Jane the Virgin has been nominated for narrator twice and Outlander has been nominated once apiece for score, costumes and production design. So if we are not taking “completely snubbed” literally, here are some that immediately come to mind as starting from very little and growing to series nominations or wins: The Americans, Friday Night Lights, Parks and Recreation, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, The Office, Two and a Half Men, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Will & Grace, Seinfeld.

    By far, the most famous example of this is Everybody Loves Raymond, which did not garner a single Emmy nomination until its third season, when it scored Series and four acting nods. This was largely the result of the ends of The Larry Sanders Show and Seinfeld, which opened up two coveted slots in Comedy Series and several long-held acting slots. Also helping considerably was the decline of 3rd Rock from the Sun, which the Emmys finally booted from Series that year.

    I worded it badly. I was aware that Outlander and Jane the virgin had very minor  nominations before, but the Americans and big bang theory and other shows that you named at least had acting nominations.

    From my list, Parks and Recreation, The Big Bang Theory, The Office and Curb Your Enthusiasm received zero nominations for their first seasons. How I Met Your Mother and Two and a Half Men only got nominated below the line for their first seasons.

    so do you think the leftovers, outlander, Jane the virgin, or rectify could ever get major nominations and which is most likely?

    I think that two-time WGA nominee The Leftovers can score a writing nomination for its finale because other shows have gotten writing nominations for their finales after many years of being snubbed. I had been thinking that Rectify could do it too, but the field is getting more crowded and they were snubbed by WGA this year.
