Enormous confusion surrounds how ‘Roseanne’ fared at the Emmys. It’s widely known that the snooty bias of Hollywood voters against blue-collar TV shows caused the top-rated series never to be nominated for best comedy, even though it won the equivalent award at the Golden Globes and claimed a Peabody prize too.
