2014 Emmy Nominations: 5 Major Snubs And 5 Much-Deserved Loves
Following up on the lengthy list of Emmy nominations that was announced today, we've picked over the choices the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences made with regards to the main categories, and we found quite a few reasons to applaud the nominees, and just as many reasons to to wave our fists and complain over the talented actors and outstanding TV shows that didn't make the cut this year.
After reviewing the nominated comedy and drama categories, we've broken this list down by the much deserved love certain shows, networks and actors received, and the snubs other shows and actors didn't receive, despite being among the best that TV had to offer over the past year.
Snubbed: Some really talented females...Where's the love for Emmy Rossum in Shameless? And how is the Academy ignoring Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany? She's delivering multiple outstanding performances on the BBC America series and it's gone unacknowledged at the Emmy's thus far. And then there's Taryn Manning. It's hard to complain much about anything related to Orange is the New Black, as the series received multiple nominations, particularly in the acting categories, however Manning would've been near or at the top of our list of supporting actors in a comedy series for her portrayal of Pennsatucky in Orange is the New Black. These women have demonstrated talent and screen presence, and have contributed in a big way to the success of their respective series. They're due for some Emmy attention.
