High-profile series that were completely excluded include better things (including the star Pamela Adlon), The Chi, Dickinson, The Good Fight, Hunters, The Loudest Voice (including star Russell Crowe), Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet, Never Have I Ever, Good News, Twenties.
Series that fell outside the main categories include The plot against America (only one nomination, for cinematography, for a show that was seen by some as a contender in multiple limited series categories); Homeland (only one nomination, to direct, for its final season, after dominating previous Emmy nominations); and Orange is the new black (just a nomination, for the appearance of Laverne Cox’s guest actress, in her last season).
The individual stars not nominated for the Emmys, despite previous honors and experts who argue that they would likely earn recognition this year, include Curb your enthusiasm star Larry David (not nominated despite numerous series winks); Allison Janney (by Bad Education and Mother); Maid tale star Elisabeth Moss; Better call Saul stars Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, and Jonathan Banks (excluded despite the series’ seven nominations, which surprisingly didn’t include a nod to co-creator Vince Gilligan’s work as director); Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt starring Ellie Kemper, Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe; Morning program Gugu Mbatha-Raw break; America lady star Rose Byrne; Amazing actresses Kaitlyn Dever and Merritt Wever; Normal people Daisy Edgar-Jones; Watchers Tim Blake Nelson; Big Little Lies“Nicole Kidman; and Reese Witherspoon (up to three series: Big little lies, little fires everywhere and The morning show, but excluded from this year’s nominees).
