2018 Emmy nominations: 50 most unforgivable snubs include ‘Outlander,’ ‘Will & Grace,’ ‘The Good Doctor’

Once again, the Emmy Awards nominations don’t include a ton of TV favorites, including past winners Sean Hayes, Eric McCormack and Debra Messing (“Will & Grace”) as well as fan favorites like “Outlander” stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan. We pride ourselves on being able to predict which way TV academy voters will go, but we didn’t see their shunning of such Emmy darlings as five-time Best Comedy Series champ “Modern Family” and previous Best Drama Series winner “Homeland.” (Remember, “Veep” and “House of Cards” are sitting out this year as they didn’t air any episodes during the eligibility period.)

We had already written off “Roseanne” after its star imploded on social media. Among the other highly-rated TV fare that didn’t fair well with the Emmys are “The Big Bang Theory,” “The Good Doctor,” “The Good Fight” and “Young Sheldon.”

Below, we enumerate the top 50 snubs in our estimation. These were the shows and performers that we thought had a strong chance to number among this year’s nominees. Let us know if there are others missing from this list that merit mentioning by sounding off in the comments section.
