D’arcy Carden and Ken Jeong just announced the 2019 Emmy nominees and there were some surprises and snubs about some of them.


This Is Us received nine nominations, despite the rotating plot the past couple of seasons.

Tidying Up with Marie Kondo was also a surprise, as it was an organizational makeover series that received two nominations. The show that made Marie Kondo a meme also had her nominated for “Outstanding Host.”

Schitt’s Creek is a cult Canadian comedy that received four nominations with Eugene Levy receiving an acting nom.

Viola Davis earned another nomination for her role in How to Get Away With Murder. Although the hype for the show was not as it used to be, the Emmy’s still noticed her powerful role in the show.


Fleabag received 11 nominations for its second and final season, which also includes five acting nominations. One of the noms was for Phoebe Waller-Bridge herself, the star of the show.

Twilight Zone only received one nomination for comedian Kumail Nanjiani, who plays a struggling comedian in the first episode.

Beyonce‘s concert special, Homecoming, received six nominations, including writing and direction.


The Good Fight is a spinoff of The Good Wife and took the Trump administration head-on. The show received no noms, not even for Christine Baranski who was not even considered.

Carden played every single character on The Good Place’s episode “Janet(s).” It probably wasn’t enough for an Emmy nomination.

The Emmys decline to recognize Julia Roberts starring role in the first season of Homecoming, after the announcement that she would not be returning for the second season, according to People.

Connie Britton earned a Golden Globe and Critic’s Choice Award nomination for her role in Dirty John, but not an Emmy nom.

Succession managed to get five nominations but the actors themselves did not earn any.

The Masked Singer was a new and upcoming singing show in the U.S. that was originally made in South Korea. It recognized people’s singing abilities and allowed the judges and viewers to judge without looking at the contestant’s appearance. T-Pain even sang and dressed as a monster on the show.

Andrew Lincoln, known for his role as Rick in Walking Dead, has been with the show since the beginning. His performance in the show was not enough to land his first Emmy nomination. The last aired season is most likely his final performance in the series.

Broad City heavily campaigned this year but Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson‘s series could not land a spot for “Outstanding Comedy” for its final season.
