Sometimes it’s not hard to wonder what Emmy voters were thinking.
Emmy nominations were announced Tuesday, and series ranging from “The Crown” to “The Mandalorian” to “Emily in Paris” were nominated for television’s top awards.
But for all of the worthy nominees, there are plenty of shocking omissions from the list. This year is no different when it comes to rebuffs, as critically acclaimed and fan-favorite series and actors have been banned from the roster, from Nicole Kidman in HBO’s “The Undoing” to the delightful musical by HBO. Peacock, “Girls5Eva”.
And these aren’t the only big names missing from the list. Due to production delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, some favorites from last year’s ceremony are ineligible because they did not air new episodes in the June 1, 2020 eligibility window at the May 31, 2021. So while fans might be wondering where the nominations are for “Succession,” “Ozark,” “Stranger Things,” “Better Call Saul,” “Killing Eve,” “The Morning Show,” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel ”, they simply had nothing to blame.
Cedric the Entertainer will host the Emmys on Sunday, September 19 on CBS (8 EDT / 5 PDT) with a more traditional in-person ceremony than the one we saw last year when Jimmy Kimmel conducted a virtual award on ABC. Until then, here are the most shocking, blatant, and sad rebuffs on the 2021 Emmy nominations list.

Despite mountains of rave reviews, an addicting soundtrack, and power producer Tina Fey behind it, this Peacock sitcom about reuniting a ’90s girl pop group couldn’t break into the comedy category. Even more outrageous, Goldsberry failed to make it into the comedy actresses category (although she did get a nod for the supporting actress in a limited series or movie for Disney’s ‘Hamilton’. +).
The sexy and beloved Netflix drama of the Regency era from producer Shonda Rhimes pulled off a nod to the drama series and the lead actor in a drama series (Regé-Jean Page), but the lead actress Dynevor will not join his Duke in the nominee circle.
Hawke had an outstanding performance as abolitionist John Brown in Showtime’s “The Good Lord Bird” miniseries, but he did not become the lead actor in any limited series or TV movie category. , which was stacked with two cast from Disney + ‘s “Hamilton”: Lin-Manuel Miranda and Leslie Odom, Jr.
