Game of Thrones House of Cards True Detective Emmys Entertainment News

Once a show is snubbed in a category at the Emmys, it is hard to make it back into that race. This holds particularly true for Best Casting (Drama Series). Last year's nominees were: 

Downton Abbey” (season 3 - third nomination, including 2011 as miniseries)
Game of Thrones” (season 3 - third nomination)
“The Good Wife” (season 4 - fourth nomination)
Homeland” (season 2 - second nomination, 2012 winner)
“House of Cards” (season 1 - first nomination, 2013 winner)

Since this category was created 14 years ago, no series has returned to the race after being snubbed. That all but rules out the return of past contenders “Boardwalk Empire” and “Mad Men.”
