All the biggest Emmy snubs of 2018, from 'The Terror' to 'The Good Place'

AMC

Not everyone can be a winner, or even a nominee.

Emmy nominations came out Thursday, with some surprises and many disappointments. In 2018, there were 728 shows on the ballot and 2,372 performances, so, of course, some shows and performances had to miss out on nominations, even if they deserved them.

Unfortunately some of the absolute best shows and performances eligible didn’t get any recognition, like AMC’s “The Terror” and “Halt and Catch Fire.” And some didn’t get the nominations they deserved, like NBC’s “The Good Place” and HBO’s “Insecure.”

The 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by “SNL’s” Colin Jost and Michael Che, will air live September 17 on NBC at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT). from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.
