Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has been one of television's most slept on comedies for a few now, and it looks like that will continue to be the trend as the show gears up for its final season. The CW series got snubbed this year in the Emmy nominations, and while Rachel Bloom is surely a bit upset about that, she had to channel her inner Rebecca Bunch and take her anger out in an over-the-top and hilarious fashion just for the fans:
Rachel Bloom is able to have some good humor in light of the situation, although it has to be frustrating for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to not get any love after the show's ambitious Season 3. The series approached some incredibly dark territory with Rebecca's suicide attempt, yet still managed to have the consistently good music, choreography, and humor that played into the show's 2 Emmy wins back in 2016. Of course, critics may not have been tuning into the series since then, which is in tune with the majority of television viewers, as the show's viewership has continued to dwindle over the course of its run.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's hope for Emmy recognition in Season 3 may have been dashed, although there's always a chance the show gets another shot at an Emmy following the end of Season 4. After all, this is the first year the series has missed out on nominations completely, and with the stage set for what could be the show's most dramatic season yet, the cast and crew certainly have a good chance at making headlines and getting the attention of next year's nominators. If not, Rachel Bloom still has that Golden Globe win she got in 2016 for Best Actress Television Series Musical Or Comedy, which is always a nice consolation.
Fans who think Rachel Bloom is actually super angry and upset Crazy Ex-Girlfriend didn't make The Emmy's shouldn't be too concerned, as this is nowhere near the amount of rage she can push out on the internet. Bloom showcased that recently when Neil Patrick Harris attempted to shade her in a subtweet backstage at the Emmy awards, which did not play out too well for him. The actress also has a history of poking fun at award shows, as evidenced by a musical number she posted to YouTube around this time last year:
