Emmy Nominations 2023: 5 Snubs Fans Are Absolutely Furious Over
These actors certainly deserve recognition.
The 75th Primetime Emmy Awards will likely be postponed due to SAG-AFTRA's failure to renew the contract with AMPTP, with actors and hosts joining the picket lines starting today. Nevertheless, there's no denying that this is one of the most significant upcoming events, as the awards will honour this year's major shows.
Yesterday, the list of nominees in various categories was announced. Fans of such pop culture giants as Succession, The Last of Us, The White Lotus, and Ted Lasso are undoubtedly happy to see their favourite shows receive recognition. However, some viewers are outraged that equally deserving and compelling shows were overlooked for nominations.
5. Steve Martin and Selena Gomez for Only Murders in the Building
Both seasons of Only Murders have found loyal fans for its Pink Panther-inspired comedy, thanks to the exceptional acting of Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. While Short was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor this year, Martin and Gomez were sadly passed over, much to their fans' dismay.
4. Harrison Ford for 1923 and Shrinking
At 81, Ford continues to impress audiences with his versatile roles and thriving career, having returned to the big screen as Indiana Jones and to television in 1923 and Shrinking. Regrettably, the academics seem to have completely forgotten about Taylor Sheridan's prequel or Ford's dramatic role in Shrinking, a big hit with Ted Lasso fans.
3. Emma D'Arcy for House of the Dragon
Many Westeros fans believe that Emma D'Arcy's portrayal of Iron Throne heiress Rhaenyra Targaryen, alongside Ewan Mitchell's Aemond Targaryen, is the best thing to have happened to the show so far, particularly after the disappointment of GoT's final season. But even though HOTD is up for Outstanding Drama Series, none of the cast, including the talented D'Arcy, was nominated.
2. Kevin Costner for Yellowstone
Taylor Sheridan appears to be out of favour with the academics, as the main neo-western series didn't get nominated in any of the categories. Fans are particularly upset for Kevin Costner: despite his announced departure from the project, viewers have been deeply invested in John Dutton's story for all five seasons.
1. Diego Luna, Andy Serkis and Stellan Skarsgård for Andor
People were captivated by the gritty atmosphere of the revolutionary underground during the Galactic Empire years, thanks to Diego Luna's dramatic performance and Skarsgård's moving monologue on sacrifice. Serkis also wowed the audience, making them care about a prisoner tormented by fear, doubt, and frustration. But to the surprise of many, none of these actors were nominated.
