I’m suprised that no one has made a for for this yet, so I decided to make one.
What was the most upsetting snub for you?
I’m really mad that Brooklyn Nine-Nine didn’t get nominated, especially when The Big Bang Theory got nominated. Same with The Good Wife, it has its best season yet.
In the acting catagories, I was really mad the Dean Norris and Betsy Brandt didn’t make it in for Breaking Bad. And why did Mellissa McCarthey got nominated over Mindy Kaling!?
Oh and also, where is the love for Parks and Rec, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Community!? I’m happy Amy Poehler got in, but Adam Scott and Nick Offerman should have got in too. It’s Always Sunny should have gotten noms for Katlin Olsen and Charlie Day in Best Supporting Comedy Actress and Best Supporting Comedy Actor. And Community should have gotten Danny Pudi, Jim Rash, Jonathan Banks and Alison Brie acting nominations!
Also upset about:
But the Emmys have to recognize the same people year after year after year…
What snub made you mad?

THE GOOD WIFE!July 28, 2014 at 3:12 am #325941
I think it was a faily longshot but I was really hoping for Melissa McBride for The Walking Dead in Supporting Drama Actress. Also disappointed that The Good Wife didn’t get back into Drama Series. Some more Shameless love would have been nice as well.July 28, 2014 at 4:19 am #325942
5 Unacceptable Snubs
1. Tatiana Maslany snubbed again for Outstanding Drama Actress for Orphan Black
2. No Good Wife for Outstanding Drama Series
3. No Legend of Korra for Outstanding Animated Program or Gravity Falls for that matter
4. Not nearly enough love for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, although Andre Braugher at least got in
5. No James Earl Jones in Comedy Guest Actor for The Big Bang Theory
5 Things I Can’t Be That Mad About Because I Knew They’d Never Happen Anyway
1. No Ilana or Abbi in Outstanding Comedy Actress for Broad City
2. No Andrew Daly in Outstanding Comedy Actor for Review
3. No Cristin Miloti in Outstanding Comedy Supporting Actress for How I Met Your Mother
4. No love for Arrow
5. None of the actresses on Brooklyn Nine-NineJuly 28, 2014 at 4:21 am #325943
Louie getting absolutely no Guest nominations – Sarah Baker, Jeremy Renner, Jerry Seinfeld, Eszter Balint and Charles Grodin would have made fantastic nominees and winners.July 28, 2014 at 4:28 am #325944
The good wife, not getting a drama serise nominationJuly 28, 2014 at 5:08 am #325945
No. 1 Most Upsetting Snub – Lead Actress TIE: Tatiana Maslany and Vera Farmiga.
No. 2 Most Upsetting Snub – Drama Series Directing: Rian Johnson for Breaking Bad.
Drama Series – Instead of Downton Abbey, we should have gotten The Good Wife.
Lead Drama Actress – Instead of Danes/Dockery/Washington, we should have gotten Connie Britton/Vera Farmiga/Tatiana Maslany to go with Caplan/Margulies/Wright. Elisabeth Moss should have gone back down to Supporting where we would all have her in a toss-up with Anna Gunn. Speaking of…
Supporiting Drama Actress – Instead of Froggatt/Hendricks/Smith, we should have gotten Melissa McBride/Elisabeth Moss/Bellamy Young to go with Baranski/Gunn/Headey. But I’m really so happy with the surprise nom for Headey that I’m able to overlook the glaring omissions.
Supporting Drama Actor – Instead of Carter/Voight, we should have gotten Charles Dance/Dean Norris.
Lead Comedy Actor – Easy. Take out Don Cheadle/William H. Macy (Shameless is a Drama Series and we all know it) and replace with Andy Samberg/Thomas Middleditch. Very happy with Ricky Gervais being nominated.
Lead Comedy Actress – How great would it have been to see Dunham/Falco dropped, along with McCarthy staying dropped, and in their place putting Anna Faris/Mindy Kaling/Wendy McLendon-Covey. In the midst of all the category-confusion, they remembered Taylor Schilling, so that makes me happy. Plus they still know who Amy Poehler is.
TV-Movie/Mini Supp. Actor – All four of my guys got in for The Normal Heart. I personally ranked them 1) Bomer, 2) Parsons, 3) Molina, 4) Mantello. And of course Freeman was going to get in. But was Colin Hanks really more deserving of a nom than Taylor Kitsch (who I had as my fifth guy for TNH)? I know giving one film five slots out of six, but when comparing the performances, Kitsch blows Hanks out of the water.
TV-Movie/Mini Supp. Actress – Like Supporting, five of the six nominees are perfect. If only they had taken out Ellen Burstyn and replaced with Audra McDonald (if you were able to get through The Sound of Music, you’ll see why she just made Tony history), it would have been a perfect category.July 28, 2014 at 6:04 am #325946
Peter Sarsgaard, The Killing. Best supporting drama actor of the year, whose submission would have towered over everyone else’s if nominated.July 28, 2014 at 6:09 am #325947
I would say zero nominations for Hannibal and Dean Norris.
However in Norris case, I think the nominations came out the same week Under the Dome debuted season 2, and it’s such an awful show and performance that you almost want to forgive voters for not choosing him. But then you see Carter there and Voight with his name checking and you’re back to feeling Norris was snubbed.July 28, 2014 at 6:15 am #325948
Louie getting absolutely no Guest nominations – Sarah Baker, Jeremy Renner, Jerry Seinfeld, Eszter Balint and Charles Grodin would have made fantastic nominees and winners.
Renner would have been nice, but I don’t think any male guest compared to Skipp Sudduth this year. He might’ve been my winner for this year. Devin Druid and Amy Landecker were pretty fantastic, too.July 28, 2014 at 6:32 am #325949

No Dean Norris.July 28, 2014 at 9:05 am #325951
For me, it’s a tie between The Good Wife (which would actually be my choice to win) and Vera Farmiga (who would also be my choice to win, for either “Shadow of a Doubt” or “The Immutable Truth”, take your pick).
