Top 15 Shows That DIDN’T Get Emmy Nominations
Fans of “Glee” and “Mad Men” rejoiced this morning as their favorite show were revealed to have 19 and 17 Emmy nominations, respectively. But not all the shows one would expect to be nominated were – check out our list below of the top 15 shows that got snubbed by Emmy votes.
1. “True Blood” - In what is surely the best thing to come from the vampire craze, Emmy voters are clearly not drinking the True Blood.
2. “Community” - With the unique characters and sharp jokes, we can’t believe this one got snubbed (perhaps payback for the years of hurtful remarks, Joel McHale?).
3. “Justified” - Because a TV show about a sexy U.S. Marshal enforcing the law, deserves a nod.
4. “Parenthood” - We love the drama that the show brings up regarding raising kids with a twist of humor.
5. “Fringe” - We love Anna Torv’s role and how funny Joshua Jackson is in this series…can’t believe it was ignored!
6. “Treme” - HBO’s critically-acclaimed show set in post-Katrina New Orleans continued their tradition of excellence on television.
7. “Southland” - We still blame Jay Leno for the near disappearance of this show, and perhaps we can stretch that to the lack of a nomination.
8. “Sons of Anarchy” - After receiving much praise from FX fans for its gritty portrayal of bike culture, we would have thought this one was a shoe in.
9. “Wipeout” - Don’t kid yourself, you know this is the best show on television.
10. “Damages” - Though the show received noms in a handful of minor categories, a nod for the larger package was no where to be seen.
11. “Party Down” - Guess no party for Party Down. Too bad, we like this comedy!
12. “Grey’s Anatomy” - After years of well deserved Emmy nominations, we accept this one.
13. “House” - As usual, decorated actor Hugh Laurie walks away with another Outstanding Actor nod, but it’s his show we want to see in the Outstanding Drama category.
14. “Jersey Shore” - Surely 4.8 million MTV viewers can’t be wrong (we know…arguable).
15. “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” - The other best show on TV.
