One of the heavyweights to be snubbed at Sunday night’s 68th Primetime Emmy Awards was the FX series “Fargo.”
In a roundup of the night’s biggest snubs and surprises, Variety notes that the limited series received 18 nominations, but parlayed them into only two trophies — both of which were awarded during the low-profile Creative Arts ceremonies, where “Fargo” won in sound editing and cinematography.
Another big snub was the Netflix drama “House of Cards,” which had 13 nominations and came away with no wins — leaving both Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright still winless for their roles on the show. Both Wright and Spacey have been nominated for Emmys for their lead roles in each of the past four years, and both have received Golden Globes for their performances — but no Emmys.
Among the surprises cited by Variety: Tatiana Maslany’s overdue win as lead actress on a drama for “Orphan Black” and Louie Anderson’s win as supporting actor for playing Zach Galifianakis’ mother on the FX comedy “Baskets”
