The Emmy nominations were announced earlier today, and as always, there were snubs. With more great shows on television, there’s more opportunities for snubs. These, however, were the most egregious among them (with helpful recommendations of who we would have replaced among the nominees to add them).

Catastrophe and You’re the Worst for Best Comedy (cut Modern Family and Transparent and move Transparent into the drama category)

David Tennant, Best Supporting Actor, Drama for Jessica Jones (cut Jon Voight for Ray Donovan)


Alison Wright, Best Supporting Actress, Drama for The Americans (cut Emilia Clarke, who plays a great character, but who is not a great actress)


Rhea Seehorn, Best Supporting Actress, Drama for Better Call Saul (cut Dame Maggie Smith, who phones it in on Downton Abbey)
