Emmy Nominations 2013: The 44 Biggest Snubs

Get More: Emmys, Lists, Photo Gallery

You can’t always get what you want — especially when it comes to Emmy nominations. And so while today’s announcement of the 2013 contenders included a number of fresh faces and nifty surprises (huzzah for Anna Chlumsky!), we still found ourselves yelling The S Word — “Snubs!” of course — at the questionable judgment of those at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

  • I have no idea what people see in Emilia Clarke. She was really terrible on the first 2 season and now she’s at most mediocre. The thing is her character on season 3 is at the top of the world and all she have to do is a bad ass face while a freakin explosion behind her does the job for her. It’s a shame that Michelle Failey, who is extremely talented and had a hell of season is out of the picture. Same goes for Nikolaj, athough Peter is doing a terrific job as always.

    • You don’t see the amazing job Emilia Clarke did in season 1, 2 & 3?? Wow, you must be blind!
      Although I agree with you on Michelle & Nikolaj, they should have been nominated as well.

  • I am speechless about Michael Cudlitz (especially) and Jeff Perry. The voters are a bunch of morons and wouldn’t know great television if it hit them in the face. . Also Gerald McRaney for Southland and the cast from the Americans. Idiots all of you.

  • I’m sick New Girl got no nominations. Just sick about it.

  • How anyone thinks “Scandal” or any part of “Scandal” is Emmy-worthy is downright shocking. Agree with a lot of these “snubs”, but “Scandal” is trashy television at its worst…

    • Amen to that. You lose brain cells when you watch that show…

  • No nods for Tony Goldwyn, Jeff Perry, Bellamy Young from Scandal?? No offense to Kerry, but all three of those actors and actress are far more talented than Kerry Washington. And I am so damn sick of The Walking Dead getting snubbed! TWD is so much smarter, better acted, better written, and just overall better than a bunch of the shows that were nominated.

  • Kim Coates from Sons of Anarchy definitely deserves a nomination.

  • Jessica Capshaw should have gotten a nom for her work as an amputee on Greys!

  • +1 on Freddie Highmore. He’s doing some amazing work as young Norman Bates.

  • Spartacus War of the Damned should have been nominated!! That finale alone was incredibly brilliant! Such incredible story telling!

    Also,Monica Porter was robbed!

  • Not only did Sutton Foster not get nominated, she wasn’t even submitted for consideration.

    I am yet again disappointed that Kate Walsh got snubbed for playing Addison. No matter how terrible the writing was, Kate always managed to rise above and give and outstanding performance. The same for Megan Hilty, who a lot of the time was the only reason to watch “Smash”. If the show hadn’t been such a clunker, who knows what might have happened.

  • The Mindy Project should have been nominated: Either her, or Chris Messina or Ike. I know the show being nominated was a long shot but it was SUCH a good season! New Girl should have definitely appeared in terms of leading (Jake) and supporting (Max) actors. And while I’m happy for Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore should have been nominated as well! Monica Potter had such media-buzz I could have sworn she was going to be nominated. So honestly that snub stings, specially since Parenthood ALWAYS gets overlooked and it had one of its best seasons yet. The only thing I’m happy about is all the BB nominations, but that was a given! Simon from TBBT was also a surprising no-show

  • They should have Cable Emmys and then Broadcast Emmys on the same night right after another.
