many of the shocks on the Emmys ballots published online Monday by the TV academy. However, even with our advance sneak peek, more stunners are to be found throughout the hundreds of pages now in the hands of voters. Gold Derby previewed
" Best Comedy Series: Bunheads," " Community," " Eastbound and Down," and " The Family Tools" are not on the ballot but IFC's " Maron" is. Animated series " Archer" is moving over to this race while " Family Guy" is giving up on getting a bid here.
Last year's special class Emmy champ was " Best Comedy Actor: Children's Hospital" and its creator and star enters here for the first time, even though his show remains in special class. After being snubbed in supporting, Rob Corddry (" Jake Johnson New Girl") is trying his luck here. Absent from the ballot are (" Nat Faxon Ben and Kate"), (" Danny McBride Eastbound and Down"), (" Lucas Neff Raising Hope"), and (" Bill Pullman 1600 Penn").
No new surprises but as we confirmed last week Best Comedy Actress: (" Portia de Rossi Arrested Development") is indeed submitting in this category.
Best Comedy Supporting Actor: entered for " Tony Hale Veep" but not "Arrested Development." All of " The Office" stars are in this race rather than lead.
Very strange to see the title star of " Best Comedy Supporting Actress: Inside Amy Schumer" here instead of lead.
As we reported last week, no Best Comedy Guest Actor: for his cameo on "The Office" finale. " Steve Carell Saturday Night Live" entered guest hosts , Louis C.K. , Bruno Mars and Martin Short while Justin Timberlake Kevin Hart submitted himself. Among the other men that "SNL" chose not to submit -- Academy Award winners , Ben Affleck , Jamie Foxx and Oscarcast host Christoph Waltz . Seth MacFarlane
"SNL" submitted Best Comedy Guest Actress: and Melissa McCarthy over recent Oscar champs Kristen Wiig or Anne Hathaway . Jennifer Lawrence
After failing last year, Starz does not even enter " Best Drama Series: Boss" this time though star remains on the lead acting ballot. PBS has " Kelsey Grammer Call the Midwife" and its lead in the drama races instead of miniseries. No effort at all for the SyFy original series "Continuum," although they have one acting entry, proving it is eligible. Jessica Raine
Nothing surprising among the actual entries, but Best Drama Actor: ("Burn Notice"), Jeffrey Donovan (" Theo James Golden Boy"), and past champ (" Kiefer Sutherland Touch") are not on the ballot.
No entry for Best Drama Actress: (" Anna Torv Fringe") after several years of futility.
Best Drama Supporting Actor: is the co-lead of " Freddie Highmore Bates Motel," so maybe his youthful age pushed him into this category. 2012 nominee is not on the ballot for " Brendan Coyle Downton Abbey," but wants to take his spot. Did Rob James-Collier submit himself? Dan Stevens is not entered for " Laurence Fishburne Hannibal."
Best Drama Supporting Actress: (" Elizabeth McGovern Downton Abbey") failed to reap a lead bid so she is moving to supporting. contended in lead at the Golden Globes for the first season of " Madeleine Stowe Revenge," but she is also making the move.
Several men from " Best Drama Guest Actor: The Good Wife" are missing, including , F. Murray Abraham , and Brian Dennehy . Not entered for " Wallace Shawn Damages" are , Victor Garber , and Chris Messina . M. Emmet Walsh
Among the ladies from "The Good Wife" who did not make the cut -- five-time Tony champ Best Drama Guest Actress: , Audra McDonald , Amanda Peet , Christina Ricci , and Anika Noni Rose . Also absent this year are Annabella Sciorra ("Revenge") and Emmy legend Jennifer Jason Leigh (" Betty White The Client List"). (" Loretta Devine Greys Anatomy"), who won this award in 2011 and was nominated last year, was not entered.
categories, the shocker is the lack of quality productions. The field is top heavy mainly due to HBO and then drops back considerably after the first eight entries. TV Movie/Miniseries
Among those telefilms and longforms absent from the ballot are "
Coma" (with and Lauren Ambrose ), " Geena Davis Crimson Petal and the White" ( ), " Romola Garai Titanic: Blood and Steel" ( ), and " Kevin Zegers Upstairs, Downstairs" ( and Keeley Hawes ). Ed Stoppard

Emmys: Why Do They Hate Kids?
'Leave it to Beaver'
Hollywood has taken W.C. Fields's famous advice to heart: "Never work with children or animals." As such, kids rarely get invited to entertainment award shows, particularly the Emmys, which have frequently snubbed classic and acclaimed programs featuring or geared towards young people.
For instance, the classic sitcom "Leave it to Beaver," about the adventures of young Theodore "The Beaver" Cleaver, ran from 1957 to 1963, and it appeared on Time Magazine's 2007 list of the 100 Best TV Shows of All Time, but it only ever received two Emmy nominations, losing both: Best New Program and Best Teleplay Writing in 1958.
