TV Fanatic Round Table: Most Glaring Emmy Snubs

by at . Comments

Nominations for the 2013 Emmy Awards are in and, along with them, the usual outrage over those left off the list.

No love (again!) for Sons of Anarchy or Justified? Bad news for The Good Wife? And don't even get us started on Tatiana Maslany...

Scroll down to find out which actors and actresses would have been included on the lists of a few TV Fanatic staff members and then vote on your biggest Emmy snub.

Matt Richenthal: It's unfortunate that Emmy voters do not get FX, but that's been the case for years so it feels like a waste to even mentions the lack of acting nods for anyone on SoA or Justified. But assuming they do get basic network television channels, the lack of Nick Offerman and Parks and Recreation in general is baffling.

Steve Marsi: Jake Johnson. But at least this will give Nick another reason to be bitter on New Girl Season 3.

Dan Forcella: For those who had a chance: Jake Johnson. For those who didn't: Tatiana Maslany.

Kate Brooks: Though I am not very surprised, I was really pulling for any nod for Elementary! I was truly impressed by the performances in their first season by Johnny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu!

Nick McHatton: Nothing for Hannibal, and, aside from Joan Cusack, Shameless gets ignored again.

Christine Orlando: Supporting Actress in a Drama, Monica Potter. She's normally a standout on the incredibly under-appreciated Parenthood, but last season's cancer story line should have made her a lock. Outstanding Drama, Sons of Anarchy. If you watch it, you understand. It's Game of Thrones on motorcycles. Guest star, Walton Goggins as a Venus Van Dam on Sons of Anarchy. Even thinking about it now, I laugh and cringe all at once... but it was certainly unforgettable.

Jim Halterman: John Noble from Fringe and Julianna Margulies from The Good Wife.

Lisa Palmer: Besides Margo Martindale as a guest star, The Americans, easily one of the best dramas of the year with great dramatic performances was ignored. Nick Offerman from Parks and Rec continues to be ignored while the same three Modern Family actors get nominated year after year. And Parenthood, which was phenomenal this year, was completely snubbed. Including Potter's unreal performance. And Mae Whitman's ability to cry on command and solicit tears from me also goes unrecognized.

Eric Hochberger: Andrew Lincoln. He only stars on the biggest drama in cable history, anchoring The Walking Dead with both an unparalleled intensity and vulnerability.

YOUR turn, TV Fanatics: Who do you think was the most glaring Emmy snub?

ANY of the rest of the cast of The Big Bang Theory. They are all GREAT! Plus, Grey's Anatomy had a phenomenal storyline this year with some really good acting. How about having more nominees from regular network TV (that people don't have to PAY to see) and less cable (ESPECIALLY the premium channels!)

Nina Dobrev. She played so many things during season 4! Scared, strong, emotionless, paranoid, psychoatic and she mastered everything! I loved her performancem during the episodes where Connor haunted her, when she didn't believed Jer was dead, when she got tortured by the brothers, in episode 2 during the wake when she was struggling so much and her doing KATARINA is always extraordinary.

You only mentioned actors, but I was astonished there was no Aaron Sorkin writing nomination for The Newsroom.

Joyeful

Snubs: Jake Johnson for lead comedic actor and New Girl for best comedic series. Hannibal was snubbed all around - competition was fierce so I can see how Mikkelsen and Dancy missed out, BUT how did the show not even get a cinematography or art direction nod?
