Snubs and Surprises at the 2016 Emmy Nominations

Who snuck in there and who missed the cut!

— -- The 68th Emmy nominations are in and while some actors and actresses rejoiced as they were acknowledged for their work this year, some didn't get the nod they may have been expected.

Here’s our list of snubs and surprises:

'Orange is the New Black'

"Entertainment Tonight" senior writer Leanne Aguilera said it best.

Year after year, "Orange" has dominated at the Emmys with wins for stars like Uzo Aduba and others. But this year, the women of Litchfield were left off the list for their season 3 work. Season 4 missed the cut, coming out after the May 31 deadline.

'The Americans'

A big surprise that had fans and critics saying "about time" was all the nominations for "The Americans."

'Billions' and Damian Lewis

"Homeland" alum and multiple Emmy nominee, Damian Lewis, didn't get a nod this year for his new Showtime series "Billions." Paul Giamatti and Malin Akerman also won't be accepting a trophy this year.

'The Good Wife'

Julianna Marguiles was shut out for her final season on the acclaimed "Good Wife," while the show also didn't earn a nod for Outstanding Drama Series. It's especially surprising since she won the award just two years ago.

Aziz Ansari, Rami Malek and Kit Harington

Considered underdogs on two very good shows, both Ansari and Malek earned nods for "Master of None" and "Mr. Robot," respectively. Fans are overjoyed.

"Mr. Robot" also earned a nod for Outstanding Drama Series, with season 2 of the USA show having come back earlier this week!

Also shocking for some: Kit Harington earned his first nod for "Game of Thrones." Winter may be coming, and Snow might be taking home an Emmy.

'Scandal' and 'Grey's Anatomy'


Fan favorite "UnReal" picked up a nod, with Constance Zimmer and others making the cut for Outstanding Supporting Actress for the Lifetime show.

The show tweeted out an ecstatic message, "The #Emmys have answered!!!!! Congrats to @ConstanceZimmer, @GertShap & @martinoxon on their Emmy noms! #UnREALtv."
