    Surprised no one else has mentioned this. How could voters forget her amazing performance in season 4 of Orange is the New Black?? Let alone her even stronger presence in season 5, that would have reminded them how she was the stand out. Was it lazy name checking? Uzo was fine but enough- there are other ladies in that show that deserved recognition and Brooks was the standout. Voters obviously didn’t bother paying attention.

    Sorry if this is a thread just for her, but she deserves to get noticed. Twitter is already in an uproar about it. If she’s snubbed for season 5, I’m done. I rarely post on here except for the Oscar season but I had to make a case for this underrated actress.

    They don’t watch the show anymore. Uzo Aduba is an exception nd Laverne Cox was in a weak af category.

    Does this really need it’s own thread?

    Instead of being rude why not participate in the question at hand. Or don’t bother at all. Thanks 😐

    I thought for a moment you were mad at her being snubbed for that lame scene in Master of None. I remember being shocked she was even listed in the predictions center.

    I’m not being rude at all. There are already threads for comedy nomination reactions and threads. If everyone made a thread about each specific snub this forum would get way too crowded. If you think I’m being rude for pointing this out, that’s your problem.

    I guess I’m in them minority who thinks she’s sensational on the series (along with the countless articles that have been written about her work and how she should have been cited).

    @pulp50: I’ve been on here for years. I know how it works. People can start specific threads for questions they want more insight on. I mentioned her snub in the main reaction Emmy thread, and no one responded. So I thought I would add a thread to get more ideas on why this performance was overlooked. If you watched season 4, you would be understanding of this.

    You like telling people you’ve been on here longer than them don’t you? If you didn’t get any replies in the other thread shouldn’t that tell you an entire thread of its own certainly isn’t needed? I did watch season 4 btw, and I still don’t understand why this thread is needed, hardly anyone was predicting her.

    She’s great in OITNB. I also got to see her phenomenal work in The Color Purple, and became a fan.

    There’s politics involve in who they recognize for Orange. Impossible to know their criteria except Aduba is who they know and Cox represents trans visibility.

    Danielle Brooks would have been highly deserving of recognition for season 4, and voters had a window of time to see her excellence in season 5 before voting ended. Her Tony nomination for “The Color Purple” should have also increased her visibility. The category didn’t “need” Uzo Aduba again, but it’s hard to dispute a 2X Emmy winner in a gutted nominees field. If Samira Wiley received her first Emmy nomination for “The Handmaid’s Tale” with dual fanbases, it’s hard not to see how pivotal Brooks was in Wiley’s tragic arc. This would have been the year to break through with Wiley, Aduba, and Cox around. It likely won’t happen next year, even though it’s totally earned with Brooks reaching MVP status at the halfway point of the season. Once the “Game of Thrones” ladies return, well, that’s that. At least one of them will win a farewell Emmy before that series ends.

    Danielle Brooks has no business being nominated for Season 4, she has some good moments in the last two episodes but nothing to constitute a nomination. I hope the Emmy voters watched Season 5. If they did, Danielle Brooks would be an obvious nominee and a deserving one.

    I totally agree with this. While she was great in season 4, she really only stood it out in a few notable scenes. On the other hand, season 4 was Aduba’s best by a mile. I get that people like to see variety, but Aduba was simply undeniable. The only other person I would have liked to see recognized is Lori Petty but she wasn’t even submitted.
