Emmys 2022: Biggest Snubs of the Year
Emmys 2022: Biggest Snubs Of The Year

While ‘Squid Games’, ‘Succession’, and ‘Ted Lasso’ won big, several other beloved talents lost out in 2022

The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards kicked off this Monday, marking off a highly-contested year that was bound to result in a few snubs — resulting in an onslaught of angry tweets and passionate think pieces across the Internet.


This year, Succession was a top favourite with 12 major nominations, followed by The White Lotus and Ted Lasso which had 11 and 10 nods respectively. In the end, The White Lotus came up on top with 5 wins, followed by Ted Lasso at 4, and a whole host of incredible shows that perhaps deserved more silverware than what they eventually took home. 


Here’s our list of the biggest Emmy snubs for 2022:


Better Call Saul

Let’s be honest — after six seasons of being called the ‘best show on television’, and going far beyond just a spiritual successor to Breaking Bad, the show has yet to win a single major Emmy — a crime against humanity as far as the fanbase is concerned, with over 46 unawarded nominations.


 While Bob Odenkirk certainly did a great job through every season of the show, it’s shocking that any of the show’s excellent supporting cast did not receive an accolade for their performances. (Note that only ‘Part 1’ of the finale season was considered — ‘Part 2’ will contest next year).

The Yellowjackets actor developed quite a strong fan following leading up to the ceremony, with a lot of New Zealand talent receiving accolades across the last few years of film and television. Unfortunately, for better or worse, Zendaya ended up taking her second Euphoria trophy this year — leaving Lynskey and an army of upset fans in the dust.


Only Murders In The Building

The subversive, cute, and macabre humour of this show won many fans this year, and also scored a whopping 17 nominations. Unfortunately, it only took home three — despite Martin Short and Steve Martin both earning ‘Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series’ nominations to Jason Sudeikis’ work on Ted Lasso.

Another show with promising nomination numbers (a solid 14 in total), the show failed to take home anything other than the Creative Arts Emmys. The biggest disappointment likely falls to series star Sarah Goldberg, who played out a massively popular and critically acclaimed performance for the show’s penultimate season.

Some chalked it off to the show’s really long hiatus post-pandemic, but while the main star Donald Glover earned a nomination this time, only the show’s cinematography and directing received similar honours. Watching the show’s sharp writing and excellent side cast pushed aside must have been frustrating for fans — who have seen the series win 5 Emmys across 22 nominations across the years.


On the bright side, actor Kenan Thompson did host the show this time around.
