The Emmys don’t always get it right. In fact, some major talent has been overlooked over the years and there really isn’t a good explanation as to why. Today, we’re looking at actors, actresses and ensemble casts who were snubbed by Academy of Television of Arts & Sciences, which left critics and fans outraged. Here are the top 7:

7. Gilmore Girls

Gilmore Girls was released to widespread critical acclaim with critics singling out Lauren Graham’s performance as single mom Lorelai Gilmore. The show only received one Emmy nomination for Outstanding Makeup for a Series for the episode “The Festival of Living Art,” which it won; however, Graham’s performance was consistently overlooked.

6. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Throughout it’s 11 seasons, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has only received three Emmy nominations all for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Comedy Series or a Variety Program. Considering that the show’s received widespread critical acclaim, with The New Yorker calling it “the best sitcom on television,” the Emmy snubs in the lead categories is surprising. After all, the ensemble cast is brilliant and the writing is consistently clever.
