What are the most egregious Emmy snubs of 2012? This list includes television shows, actors and actresses who really deserved, but didn't get, a Primetime Emmy nomination from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. There are always snubs and surprises when it comes to awards show nominations, and this year was no exception. This list includes some of the biggest, most shocking 2012 Emmy snubs.
The nominations for the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced by Kerry Washington and Jimmy Kimmel on July 19, 2012. What celebrity didn't hear their name called? Which TV shows' casts were the most disappointed? For everyone excited they *did* get the big nomination, there are always many more who are no doubt crushed because they didn't get the nod. We can't all be 'Mad Men' or 'American Horror Story,' after all. Both of those programs, by the way, received 17 2012 Emmy nominations each.
The 64th Primetime Emmys will air live on Sunday, September 23, 2012, from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Jimmy Kimmel will host the show on ABC.
