Some of us are still mad.
Despite the fact that the number of nominees was increased from six to seven for this year’s 67th Primetime Emmy Awards, a few of our favourites still did not get the nod yesterday.
Twitter has gone gaga. Instagram is in a rage and at TNS, we are still placing more orders for boxes of tissue.
In between sniffs, I’ve managed to come up with 5 unbelievable Emmy nomination snubs.
1. Which snub can beat Empire‘s? Universally loved, intergalactically appreciated, the Fox hip-hop series whose second season we can’t wait for did not make the drama series category.
2. Terrence Howard of Empire.
Who did Lee Daniels offend? Or is it Bunkie‘s ghost coming back to haunt… nevermind.
3. Ellie Kemper of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Who would have believed that the Netflix comedy performance wouldn’t win Kemper a nomination?
That’s right. Not me.
4. The Big Bang Theory.
Emmy Academy, what’s the theory behind this snub? Huh?
5. Gina Rodriguez of Jane the Virgin. After winning the Golden Globe, even the angels thought she would stroll casually to the Nokia Theater stage later this year to pick up another award.
Well, our friends at the Emmy surely had other plans.
Diaris God o!
