The 73rd Emmy Award nominations were announced on Tuesday, but the news raised some eyebrows the nominations come with snubs and surprises.
“The Crown” and “The Mandalorian” lead this year’s nominations. “Ted Lasso,” “WandaVision” and “The Crown” commanded their respective categories, leaving slim chances for competition.
As expected, there are a few nominations that shocked some.
Here are the biggest snubs and surprises of the 2021 Emmys:
Incredibly popular “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” may be critically acclaimed but it didn’t manage to snag any major nominations. Both Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan were snubbed in favor of Don Cheadle’s short guest role.
Peacock’s musical comedy “Girls5eva” received a writing nomination for creator Meredith Scardino.
Over the course of his career, Ted Danson won two Emmys out of 18 Emmy nominations but in his latest comedy, “Mr. Mayor,” he was left off the roster this year.
Nicole Kidman, who won an Emmy for “Big Little Lies,” was not nominated for her leading role in HBO’s “The Undoing.”The show’s only nomination was a nod for star Hugh Grant.
“Small Axe,” a series of anthology TV movies, was also snubbed by the Emmys.
“Emily in Paris”, which earned two nominations from the Golden Globes, received a nomination for one of the year’s most prestigious awards — outstanding comedy series.
Despite having a large audience, “Cobra Kai” is another show that doesn’t get the best reviews, but it is surprisingly nominated for outstanding comedy series.
“Hamilton” has been undeniably popular since it debuted on Broadway but getting nine nominations still comes as a surprise.
“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” was expected to earn more nominations than it did, and what certainly wasn’t expected was Cheadle’s nomination as a guest star in the show, making him one of Marvel’s inaugural class of actors to have been nominated for major awards for their performance, alongside Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany and Kathryn Hahn.
Last year, Maya Rudolph won two Emmys for playing Vice President Kamala Harris on “Saturday Night Live” and Connie the Hormone Monstress in “Big Mouth”. She might win again this year after being nominated for the same shows yet again.
Quibi earned eight nominations for its second season with the Television Academy. Actors Kevin Hart, John Travolta, John Lutz, J.B. Smoove, Nathalie Emmanuel, Paula Pell and Kerri Kenney-Silver each earned nominations in the short form acting categories, while the “Reno 911!” reboot was recognized in the outstanding short-form comedy, drama or variety series category.
