Emmy nominations day will never be anything but disappointing. There is simply too much good TV and too many masterful performances to honor every worthy offering with a nod. The 2017 Emmy nominations were announced on July 13, and, as always, there are many categories that didn't have room to accommodate all the deserving entries. But there's a big difference between a disappointment and a "snub." I'd define "snub" as the lack of a nomination for an individual or a series that has a) been nominated before, or honored by a conspicuous amount of other awards bodies; b) is well-known enough to be on voters' radars; and c) seems to fit the vibe of the Emmys. (That last one is a little more nebulous.) Oh, and the show has to have been eligible. So before you get all up in arms about your faves not being on the list, consider that these 19 Emmy snubs aren't really snubs.
Because, though it's embraced programming on streaming services over the past few years, the Emmy Awards remain remarkably mainstream. (Remember the reign of Downton Abbey?) So it's worth remembering that certain genres still fall outside of the regular domain of likely nominations, particularly any science fiction/fantasy that's not Game Of Thrones. So don't get mad about these not-snubs — just make sure you're spreading the good word of those shows and performances you love from whatever platform you have.
