On Tuesday, July 16, the Academy of Television Arts & Science announced the nominees for the 71st Annual Emmy Awards, which are set to take place on Sept. 22. As usual, the announcement provided a mixed bag of exciting wins for fan favorites and major snubs. It's a TV awards potpourri, really, but these 2019 Emmy nomination snubs hurt a little more due to the fact that some of those who didn't get nominations are shows that are ending soon. For example, Schitt's Creek plans to end after Season 6, so the fact that Dan Levy didn't get an acting nomination is just pouring salt in the wound.
Still, Schitt's Creek itself was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series and its stars Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy snagged nominations for their acting on the beloved series. See? Mixed bag. And, since Schitt's Creek's final season hasn't yet aired, there's still a chance for Dan to get nominated in next year's Emmy Awards. Other shows that aired their final seasons in the past year, like Game of Thrones and Veep, received a lot of Emmy recognition, which only makes the absence of Broad City, another series that came to an end this year, even more glaring. Check out the full list of the snubs that are sticking out of the potpourri like a rancid cinnamon stick.
