Emmys 2013 Nominations: Biggest Snubs and Surprises
Sons of Anarchy and Justified
<b>SNUB: "Sons of Anarchy" and "Justified"</b><br>
We know Emmy voters get FX, since "American Horror Story: Asylum" is this year's most-nominated show … so how to explain the snubbing of "Sons of Anarchy" and "Justified," two of the finest dramas on cable? "SOA's" rich fifth season was deserving of series and individual nods, from leads Charlie Hunnam and Katey Sagal to supporting cast Ron Perlman, Kim Coates, Maggie Siff, and Jimmy Smits, and guest star Harold Perrineau. Ditto the fourth season of "Justified," which deserves nominations for writing (best dialogue on TV), lead and supporting actor (Timothy Olyphant and Walt Goggins have the best frienemy bromance in primetime), and guest stars, which, this season, included Jim Beaver as the central figure in the Drew Thompson mystery and scene-stealing turns from Patton Oswalt, Ron Eldard, and Mike O'Malley. Oh, and Walt Goggins' guest star performance as Venus Van Damme on "SOA" … another sad snub.
