Much to my joy and overwhelming sadness are literally thousands of televisions shows to watch, binge-watch or, if you appreciate fantastic actors playing despicable people, hate-watch.
So with a varied and wonderful ocean of television, it’s nearly impossible for even the esteemed Television Academy to recognize all of the industry’s most talented for this year's Emmy nominations. Snubs are bound to happen, and as devastating as it is, we just have remember that it really is an honor to be nominated.
Here are 4 heartbreaking Emmy snubs...
With more quality television shows than ever before, it’s almost impossible for prestigious award shows, like the Emmys, to rightfully recognize the best of the best.
However, the 68th Annual Emmy Award nominations, announced last week by Anthony Anderson (black-ish) and Lauren Graham (Parenthood) last week, nearly did. It was a celebration of studio and racial diversity with HBO, streaming services like Netflix and Starz, as well as traditional cable and broadcast stations racking up nominations. FX’s The People V.

Winners and nominees cheered each other on, cracked jokes while presenting and accepting their awards, and passionately and adorably lip-synched to John Legend’s performance.
The 2016 Golden Globes unfortunately handed out more awkward and frustrating moments than trophies during its tediously broadcast on Sunday. Why is Mel Gibson or Quentin Tarantino even allowed at award shows? How come Melissa McCarthy, Andy Samberg or Kevin Hart couldn't tap in for the insanely snooze-worthy Ricky Gervais?
The silver lining of an overall sub-par awards show is that it made the few and far-between highlights feel nearly meteoric. Here were the best moments...
