Not an awards nomination ceremony goes by without someone, somewhere uttering those three little words: “But what about…”
This year's Emmy nominations were no different with some seemingly glaring oversights.
There wasn't a best comedy series bid for CBS’ little nerd show that could, “Big Bang Theory,” nor was there a best reality show bid for "Survivor." And how did Ed O’Neill earn the distinction of being the only adult cast member on ABC’s “Modern Family” not to be nominated?
We get that Charlie Sheen has had some personal problems, but did that mean he didn’t deserve to be nominated for his work on “Two and a Half Men?”
It was great to see new shows "Modern Family" and "Glee" score so many nominations, as well as to see Betty White's star continue to shine with her best guest actress in a comedy nomination for her "power to the Facebook people" stint on "Saturday Night Live."
But that doesn't mean commenters on CNN’s site didn't have lots to say about who was and who wasn’t recognized this year.
Was "Community" nominated for nothing?!” wrote one identified as azguy2008. “That's robbery!”
[It did seem a tad mean that “Community” star Joel McHale had to announce the nominations alongside Emmy-nominated “Modern Family” actress Sofia Vergara (whose show received several nominations), even though he didn't receive a bid.]
“What happened to '24,’ ” queried another commenter named Jackie.
“Sons of Anarchy is one of the best shows out there right now, how on EARTH is it not getting any recognition,” said commenter Steph. “Especially Katey Segal or Charlie Hunnam. This is a load of crap!”
You can’t please everyone, but it seems like a weird Emmy year when the dude from the Old Spice commercials seems to be getting more attention than some of the major stars ("The Man Your Man Could Smell Like" ad was nominated in the outstanding commercial category.)
Who do you think got slighted?
