We get it: There’s too much TV these days.
It’s hard to get too worked up about Emmy snubs when there are dozens of channels and hundreds of shows out there competing for a precious few nomination slots. And we’re happy to see the very worthy shows and performances that were honored at this year’s Emmy nominations. (Yay, Abbott Elementary! Bravo, Rhea Seehorn!) But still, we’re a little dumbfounded that there are quite a few quality TV shows out there that somehow managed to not earn a single Emmy nomination in any category. Like, not even one.
So to work through our annual angst, we here at TVLine decided to put together this list of some of our favorite shows, from highly rated broadcast comedies to critically acclaimed streaming gems, that didn’t land any Emmy nominations at all this year. Maybe Emmy voters didn’t even know these shows existed, and this will be the nudge they need to nominate them next year? Well, we can hope, anyway.
Read on to see which shows deserved better from this year’s Emmy nominations — even a token nod in the technical categories would have been nice — and then hit the comments to let us know which of your favorite shows got shut out, too.
