Emmy Snubs 2016: Who Got ROBBED Of Emmy Awards Nominations?
The 2016 Emmy Awards nominations were announced Thursday, but as is the case with most years, there were a few big snubs. Gossip Cop has compiled a list of the biggest upsets below.
Social media users have been debating the shows and actors/actresses who got robbed of consideration for this year’s lineup of nominees. “Orange is the New Black” fans are upset that the Netflix series didn’t score a nod for Outstanding Drama Series, despite being recognized last year. Other dramas that fans feel were unfairly left out of the category include HBO’s “The Leftovers,” Starz’s “Outlander,” Fox’s “Empire,” AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” and CBS’s “The Good Wife.”
In the comedy category, there were quite a few shows that the Emmy voters didn’t think delivered enough laughs, but fans disagree. Some of the shows that won’t be competing for Outstanding Comedy Series include “Last Man on Earth,” “Silicon Valley,” “Fresh Off The Boat,” “The Goldbergs,” and “Shameless.”
As far as actors, many were bummed not to see James Spader score a nod for “The Blacklist.” Additional male stars not to receive a nomination included Christian Slater in “Mr. Robot,” Bobby Cannavale in “Vinyl,” and both Paul Giamatti and Damien Lewis” for “Billions.” Meanwhile, a few of the snubbed actresses were Julianna Margulies in “The Good Wife,” Sophie Turner in “Game of Thrones,” Lady Gaga for “American Horror Story: Hotel,” and Carrie Coon for “The Leftovers.”
Additional shows in varying categories that are being named on social media, but not by the Emmys, include “American Idol,” “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” and “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” The 2016 Emmy Awards will be held September 18 on ABC.
