Rhea Seehorn not even getting a nomination for Kim so far is far worse.

Ehrmantraut never won anything for that role?!

Nominated five times (once for BB, 4x for BCS) but hasn't won.

After just skimming the politics tab I can't imagine how anyone could care about Emmy snubs. Whoever was snubbed will get over it, and if they can't they should stay out of show business.

During the Kimmel/Carolla (main) era of the Man Show, there was a self-promoting clip where they were listing their good traits, and for "we're sensitive" or something it cut to Kimmel holding an Emmy, saying "We can't in good conscience accept this, when Susan Lucci's standing here with nothing" and handing it to her.

About the only gag I remember from the whole show other than the "End Women's Suffrage" bit.

Jonathan Banks NOT winning for Better Call Saul and his transcendent 'I broke my boy!' monologue is a snub so great, I believe it was the impetus behind COVID - it was the Universe's way of telling us 'Think about what you've done!!!!'

Holy shiat that was a soul shattering 5 minutes!  I'm still not recovered.

And, while we are at it -- Michael McKean NOT getting even a nomination for his stellar work on BCS...AND Rhea Seehorn getting overlooked for this last season....How did these things happen??!?!?!?!?!?

The main run was pretty good, and celebrated that men are idiots and had some pleasant satire. Then Rogan and Stanhope took over, and it went from "laughing with stupid men" to "women are TEH EVULZ".

/Rogan ruins everything.
//Stanhope is just a massive dick.
///Corolla and Dr. Drew became utter loons
////Who would have guessed Kimmel would be the only one who ended up looking better?

Carrie Coon on The Leftovers. Unfortunately, not enough people watched that show in its first run.

It's always been a travesty that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia has never gotten an Emmy nomination, but I think that Kaitlin Olson not getting a Best Actress nomination is, in its own way, been a greater travesty than the show itself, or anyone else in the cast, not being nominated.  She has been one of the most reliably funny woman on television for 15 years now.

Oh well, at least they got a good episode out of being snubbed.

"Still, it's somewhat in-character that Carell never got the top prize for playing Michael, with the closest he ever came being the year his old Daily Show colleagues Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert handed him the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy of absent Office co-creator Ricky Gervais-thus marking Gervais' last involvement with something funny happening at an awards show."


Someone get that man to the burn unit, stat!

I spent the last few minutes trying to think of something I could care less about than this. I give up. Can't think of anything.

If you truly didn't care, you wouldn't have bothered to comment, but nope, you felt the need to piss on this hydrant.

They are spot on about the Bojack Horseman snub.

The biggest snub was The Simpsons season 4 (or 5 take your pick) not getting nominated for Best Comedy after submitting both of those years (1994 and 1995). Home Improvement got nominations both of those years!
