List Rules Vote up the most egregious Emmy snubs of 2015

The 2015 Emmy Award nominations recognized plenty of top-notch shows and awesome performances, but we're here to vote on the great shows and actors that weren't among the 2015 Primetime Emmy nominees. There are a lot of surprising snubs to choose from, but with this list, you can decide just which actor, actress, or series was snubbed hardest. Which most deserved a Primetime Emmy Award, only to end up without so much as a nomination?

Lily Tomlin got an Emmy nomination but her Frankie and Grace co-star Jane Fonda got bupkis? Harsh. Jon Hamm got some last minute love but many of Mad Men's outstanding supporting players just have to watch at home like the rest of us. Bummer. 

The Big Bang Theory star and previous Emmy favorite Jim Parsons was nowhere to be found. And there was no love for Thomas Middleditch or the Silicon Valley supporting cast. Michael Kenneth Williams got zero recognition for playing Chalky White on Boardwalk Empire. Not even a hug for Jeffrey Wright on the same show. Say what?! And how about Miss Rosa on Orange Is the New Black. Barbara Rosenblat made us feel all of the feelings during her run. 

What were the biggest snubs of the 2015 Primetime Emmy Award nominations? Let's look at the list of big hurts and grouse together. Vote up the performers and shows that you think most deserved to be 2015 Emmy nominees.
