A couple notable snubs here:

  • Seriously, not a single ounce of love for Parks and Recreation? “Halloween Surprise” was quite possibly the most perfect episode of the entire year, and you just glazed right over that one.
  • According to the internet, I should really be watching Orphan Black, because Tatiana Maslany is amazing in it and she got completely ripped off.
  • Once again, RuPaul’s Drag Race got shut out in the reality competition categories, despite being one of, if not the most critically acclaimed shows of its genre. I get that the Emmys don’t like to stray from their comfort zone, but what the hell? Seriously, even Face Off would have been welcome.
  • No Justified? Sons of Anarchy? Archer? Whose cereal did FX pee in?
