Emmys 2019: 10 Most Outrageous Nomination Snubs

Game Of Thrones somehow got 32 nominations, but which big names missed out?


The Emmy nominations have just been revealed, and as usual there’s already some ups and downs before the gongs have been handed out. BoJack Horseman, Alfie Allen and and Schitt’s Creek have all earned nomination to the delight of fans who’ve frequently pushed for more recognition.

Conversely though, the poorly received Game Of Thrones Season 8 getting a record breaking 32 nominations has baffled some. A few feel earned (Emilia Clarke, Miguel Sapochnik, the aforementioned Alfie Allen), but Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Direction for the 4.2/10 rated finale on IMDb, less so.

There’s lots to discuss amongst those who actually are nominated, such as who’s most likely to win, who deserves it most etc, but there’s arguably more to be said about those who’ve missed out entirely.

The ten actors or shows here have all been overlooked in categories they might have, with a slight reshuffle to the voting panel, actually won. Some have been overlooked for too long, others are former darlings surprisingly left out in the cold, and others again are new shows which just didn’t get traction.

One thing ties them together though; they’ve all been snubbed.
