These actors missed out on an Emmy 2023 nomination and we are furious.

Each year, the Emmy nominations seem to get more controversial.

Now, with so many streaming services and actors flocking to small-screen dramas and miniseries, the pool is just so full. Yes, there is simply too much good TV.

It's a strange problem to have (and definitely not a problem to the rest of us), but that's exactly what the Television Academy is having to contend with every single year.

This year's Emmys are scheduled for September but it's almost certain that the show will move to either November or January due to ongoing strikes in Hollywood.

Watch the trailer for the final season of Succession, which has been nominated for many awards. Post continues after video.

Okay, and who did the Emmys snub?

When it comes to actors, one of the most obvious snubs is Harrison Ford.

The veteran missed out on a nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Shrinking, despite the fact his co-stars Jason Segel and Jessica Williams both scored nominations for their roles.


Ford also wasn't recognised for his role in the series 1923.

Steve Martin was also snubbed for his role in the comedy series Only Murders in the Building. But his co-lead Martin Short managed to claim a spot in the Best Actor category. 

In devastating news for The Crown fans, Imelda Staunton missed out on an Emmy nomination for her role as Queen Elizabeth II, despite her predecessors Claire Foy and Olivia Colman both taking out Emmy wins for the role. 

Dame Helen Mirren was also snubbed for her role in 1923, as was Emily Blunt for her role in The English.

As for TV shows, Poker Face missed out on a Best Comedy Series nomination and A Small Light wasn't recognised amongst the Best Limited or Anthology Series nominees.

When are the 2023 Emmys?

Variety reports that The Television Academy and Fox, the network that hosts the awards show, are locked in a battle about when to hold the show - as its September 18 airdate is almost certainly about to be postponed.

According to insiders, they are waiting to see for sure if SAG-AFTRA — that's the actors union — goes on strike this week, joining the Writers in a move that would put the brakes on all major Hollywood events.

We should have an answer by the end of July.
