The 2013 Emmy Award nominations were announced this morning, and while there is plenty there to complain about, as Emmy nominations typically go, it’s better than most years. There were some deserving drama series left out, but there’s only six slots, and I don’t fault the Academy for the ones chosen.

All the same, it is Emmy nomination day, and I have to give you guys something to grouse about. So how about this: A list of the 25 Best TV Shows that were never nominated for a Best Series Emmy in either the drama or comedy categories.


1. “The Wire”

2. “Homicide: Life on the Streets”

3. “Roseanne”

4. “Freaks and Geeks”

5. “Firefly”

6. “Justified”

7. “Oz”

8. “Sports Night”

9. “Veronica Mars”

10. “Community

11. “Party Down”

12. “The Walking Dead”

13. “The Shield”

14. “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”

15. “Battlestar Galactica”

16. “Rectify”

17. “Orphan Black”

18. “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
