    The Leftovers is obviously going to get completely shut out, so of course Coon and Theroux won’t get nominated.

    But Foy and Moss aren’t getting snubbed while their shows get into series.

    Amy Adams wasn’t getting snubbed if her film was nominated for BP. Your point?

    AND Best Director. AND Best Adapted Screenplay… aaand even though I do not think she deserved an Oscar nomination for Arrival, even I have to admit she got screwed bad by the Academy. 8 nominations, so many major ones, yet you snub the star, the one who was arguably the key ingredient to the movie’s success in general… THAT is one of the all-time for insultingly obvious S.N.U.B.S. Seriously, did Amy threaten to kill Cheryl Boone Isaacs mother? WTF?!

    Almost as weird was that Amy Adams got to present Adapted Screenplay, which I’m guessing the Oscar producers thought would be a lock for WGA winner Arrival… only to present the award to Moonlight instead. Talk about awk-ward!

    Wait, it’s widely expected for Coon to break through just cause she has Fargo?

    that is one of the reasons. Other reasons include her being amazing, The Leftovers airing at the right time, her and the show having a TON of buzz, having multiple Emmy worthy tapes, and a few other reasons.

    Is that legit like how The Americans got in last year or is it exaggerated fanboyism?

    Anyone who says Spacey is sorely mistaken….

    Ansari, Spacey, and Kemper are all locks in my opinion. I’d say Rhys, Russell, Burrell and Odenkirk are safe too… The others, especially Wood, Middleditch and unfortunately Theroux and Coon, are in the most danger of missing out.

    I think the Americans was based off critical buzz. No one really watches the show, the ratings have always been pretty terrible, but 4 seasons of critics calling it the best show on tv seemed to finally get academy members attention.

    But does anyone actually see Foy or Moss getting snubbed if their series gets tons of rec including series? There’s a reason neither are included in the poll. And those are really the only two contenders in a comparable situation to Adams.

    The Arrival not being seen as an “actor’s movie” hurt Adams, who was never a shoo-in for a nod to begin with.

    Adams was a total shoo in. I believe she was either the first or one of only about 2 or 3 actors ever who got SAG, CC, GG, and Bafta nominations without getting an Oscar nom. It was one of the biggest snubs of all time. It’s probable that she split votes with herself with Nocturnal Animals.

    I only considered Portman, Stone and Huppert to be shoo-ins by nomination day. Adams was in a sci-fi movie and didn’t give a “showy” performance. I can’t say how everyone else perceived it. Her snub however was definitely a surprise considering ‘Arrival’s other nominations.

    The point is only Foy or Moss’ snubs would be comparable to Adams and only if their shows receive a hefty amount of major nominations otherwise.

    So what about Evan Rachel Wood? Westworld should get a large number of nominations, and she’s a favorite to be nominated although not quite a shoo in.

    LOL Evan Rachel Wood is the definition of a shoo in. She might even be more of a lock than Moss, simply because we know the Emmy voters are cool with HBO, but they have yet to show any support for a Hulu Drama Series. Plus, Wood won the Critics Choice Award and was nominated for a Golden Globe. True, she missed out on SAG, but since the Emmys split up Drama Actress into Lead and Supporting, and the Emmys have 6 nominees whereas SAG had just 5, Wood is safe, a shoo in without question.

    @bee Regarding The Leftovers’ Emmy chances:
    “Is that legit like how The Americans got in last year or is it exaggerated fanboyism?”

    Same thing happened with Jake Gyllenhaal’s masterful performance in Nightcrawler. He should have WON that year. 🙁

    According to IMDB. Adams, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tilda Swinton, Marion Cotillard, Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Daniel Brühl and Jake Gyllenhaal are the only actors to receive a Golden Globe, SAG, BAFTA and Critics’ Choice Award nomination for the same performance and then fail to be Oscar-nominated for it: for their performances in Arrival (2016), The Departed (2006), We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011), Rust and Bone (2012), Saving Mr. Banks (2013), Captain Phillips (2013), Rush (2013) and Nightcrawler (2014), respectively.

    Dead at 80% being better than the eventual winner.

    Thanks for the info, more than the 2 or 3 I thought, but definitely still very rare. Seems to be happening more the last 5 years or so though.
