Emmy snubs: George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Emma Stone left out of nominations  1 Month ago

Source:   USA Today  

A-listers including Amy Adams ("Sharp Objects"), Mahershala Ali ("True Detective") and Michelle Williams ("Fosse/Verdon") all landed Primetime Emmy nominations Tuesday, but plenty of other high-profile actors and shows were left off the list. 

Among the most notable snubs: 

The Oscar winner made a splash with Amazon's mind-bender "Homecoming," in which she played a social worker at an experimental facility for returning soldiers. Although Roberts' TV debut was hailed as one of her finest performances in years, that wasn't enough to win over Emmy voters, who passed her over for best actress in a drama series. 

The "ER" megastar made his much-anticipated return to TV with war satire "Catch-22," co-starring in and directing two of the miniseries' six episodes. But the Hulu show earned zero nominations, while rival Netflix's limited series "When They See Us" rightfully cleaned up across the board.

Another Oscar winner out of the running for Emmy gold? Stone, who was the highlight of Cary Fukunaga's ambitious Netflix drama "Maniac," in which she co-starred with Jonah Hill as participants in a mysterious trial for a pharmaceutical drug. The show's genre-hopping dream sequences allowed for both actors to inhabit multiple roles – easy catnip for Emmy voters – but both actors were shut out of the limited series categories.

The ABC sitcom has been up for best comedy series the past three years, but was overlooked in Tuesday's nominations, while critical darlings "Fleabag," "Russian Doll" and "Schitt's Creek" all earned their first nods in the category. Tracee Ellis Ross, a three-time actress nominee for "Black-ish," was also snubbed, leaving Anthony Anderson with the show's lone major nomination for best comedy actor. 

Justice for Aidy! The longtime "Saturday Night Live" standout earned her first nomination for supporting actress in a comedy series last year, but failed to land repeat recognition in the category. (Perennial favorite Kate McKinnon was the sole "SNL" cast member to score a nod, though five hosts won nods in the guest-acting categories.) Even more egregious: Bryant's delightful and moving Hulu comedy "Shrill," which was praised for its revolutionary portrayal of a fat woman, was also snubbed across all categories. 

The Netflix dramedy, set in the competitive world of women's wrestling in the 1980s, was a knockout with Emmy voters in its first season, winning two awards and nabbing eight total nominations, including one for best comedy series. But the show managed just one major nod this round, for Betty Gilpin in best supporting actress. 

It wasn't all bad news for Netflix, whose 117 nominations, up from 112 last year, ranked second behind HBO. Sophomore crime thriller "Ozark" managed nine, including best drama series, a category that also recognized the streaming giant's "Bodyguard." Still, the shutout from best comedy series for "Kominsky" must've been a surprise. The Chuck Lorre series, about an acting coach and his best friend, appeared to be generally well-liked with Emmy voters, who nominated Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin for best actor and supporting actor, respectively. Netflix's twisty "Dead to Me" was similarly missing from best comedy series, but still found love for Christina Applegate as best actress.
