Slide 1 of 5 | View On One Page

The Emmy nominations are always a big surprise because the Academy seems to follow the beat of its own drum. A show that gets Golden Globe nominations isn’t always a shoo-in for an Emmy nod. This year, we were really surprised by some of the nominations. For a moment there, we really thought that we had it figured out. We were wrong though. There were so many snubs that we just didn’t see coming and there were some surprises that even a TV aficionado couldn’t expect. We have rounded up 9 snubs and surprises from this year’s Emmy nominations. Hopefully some of these shows will have better luck next year!

Snub: The Big Bang Theory

“The Big Bang Theory” didn’t score any Emmy nods this year, which was a huge surprise given that Jim Parsons had been nominated the last six years in a row and won a total of four times.

Surprise: Liev Schreiber

No one expected Liev Schreiber to receive a nod for his performance in “Ray Donovan.” He had some tough competition, including favorites like Terrence Howard of “Empire” and Clive Owen of “The Knick.”
