Emmy nominations 2018: The most shocking snubs  7 Months ago

Source:   USA Today  

"Game of Thrones" led the nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, but which expected nominees missed the cut?  

Debra Messing and Eric McCormack of "Will & Grace"

The NBC sitcom earned 83 nominations and 16 wins during its original eight-season run, which ended in 2006. But the high-rated revival didn't receive the same amount of love, earning just five nominations, including best supporting actress for fan favorite Megan Mullally as Karen. Co-stars Messing, McCormack and Sean Hayes missed out. 

Alison Brie of "GLOW" 

Netflix's '80s-set women's wrestling show managed a nod for best comedy series but was down for the count in other major categories. Potential nominee Brie was overlooked, although co-star Betty Gilpin still punched up with the show's only other major nomination, as supporting actress. 

Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington of "Game of Thrones"

HBO's hit fantasy series was ineligible last year because of its midsummer premiere but was back in the running this year for its seventh season. Although the Emmy favorite earned a stellar 22 nominations, the most of any series, including best drama, the show earned no leading-actor nods for Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner and Kit Harrington. Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau still managed nominations for best supporting actress and actor. 

Jeffrey Tambor

The two-time Emmy winner, who was nominated just last year for playing a trans woman in "Transparent," went unnoticed this year after being fired from the Amazon series in February because of  sexual harassment allegations. Both of his shows – "Transparent" and Netflix comedy "Arrested Developed" – missed out in all categories. 

Freddie Highmore

ABC's hit freshman medical drama "The Good Doctor" was dead on arrival at the Emmys with zero nominations, despite awards procrastinators' predictions that Highmore would get a slot as leading actor in a drama. 

Roseanne Barr

No one really expected ABC's "Roseanne" revival, last season's top-rated sitcom, to reap nominations after Barr's racist tweet in May that got her fired and the show canceled. Still, the show's mere two nominations – in editing and supporting actress, for Laurie Metcalf – must have stung. 

Kyle MacLachlan and "Twin Peaks" actors

The Television Academy wasn't having the cherry pie. David Lynch's '90s cult classic, revived as a limited series on Showtime last year, earned nine nominations, but only in non-acting categories such as cinematography, directing and writing. MacLachlan and Laura Dern were left out, although Dern snared an acting nod for HBO movie "The Tale," playing a victim of sexual abuse. 

Winona Ryder

Justice for Winona: The two-time Oscar nominee made a triumphant comeback in Netflix's sci-fi smash "Stranger Things," playing a mom whose son vanishes and is then possessed by an evil monster. Although co-stars Millie Bobby Brown and David Barbour both netted supporting-actor nominations, Ryder missed out for the second year in a row. 

All of "Modern Family"

Although the long-running comedy has largely fallen out of critical favor, it has still been a perennial Emmy nominee, garnering 81 nods and 22 wins. But the ninth-season comedy was snubbed for the first time as a nominee for outstanding comedy series, as well as all acting categories. Its only nomination: sound mixing. 

Mandy Moore 

"This is Us" fans have another reason to bawl their eyes out: NBC's hit drama took eight nominations, including best drama series and lead actor for both Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia. Missing from the list? Moore and co-star Chrissy Metz, a supporting-actress nominee last year. 

The 70th Primetime Emmys air Sept. 17 on NBC (5 PDT/8 EDT) with hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che.
