2018 Emmy Awards Show Snubs: ‘Twin Peaks: The Return,’ ‘Modern Family’ & ‘Killing Eve’
With all of the incredible television series, it’s hard to feel that each of the especially well-done shows can be recognized at the Emmy Awards.
The many snubs include Killing Eve, Modern Family and Twin Peaks: The Return.
Killing Eve is a BBC America drama, a network that has never seen a nomination in the drama category, that was overlooked aside for Sandra Oh‘s historic nomination as the first Asian actress to be nominated for best lead in a drama series. However, fans wanted to see the best drama series nod as well as recognition for Jodie Comer‘s performance as the psychopathic Villanelle.
As for Modern Family, the sitcom has never been unrecognized by the academy since its start on ABC. However, HBO’s Barry, Netflix’s GLOW and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel were the newcomers who did receive nods for Outstanding Comedy Series.
The sequel to the cult-themed series Twin Peaks: The Return garnered several nods for writing, directing and sound design and six in the craft categories. Yet, it missed the nominations for best limited series and for actors including Kyle MacLachlan and Laura Dern.
Here are some fan reactions to the 2018 snubs:
Modern Family left out of outstanding comedy for the first time in its history. I am fine with this. #Emmys

It is really nice to see Homeland, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, and Ray Donovan not get nominations this year. Not that those people don’t deserve them, I’m sure those shows are still great but after 8 nominations it’s time to let some new people into the ring.

Congratulations to the Emmys for ignoring Twin Peaks, the best TV of the last ten years. I just hope nobody finds out the Emmys are fake and run on politics and payola. It would destroy the magic of television.

The 5 Best TV shows of the year—The Good Fight, American Vandal, Killing Eve, The Good Place, and One Day at a Time—all fail to get respective Best Series nominations.
