Emmys 2013: Nomination snubs and surprises

‘Modern Family’
Eric Stonestreet last year won his second Emmy award for supporting actor in a comedy series for “Modern Family.” There’s no chance of a three-peat, however; Stonestreet was shut out of the nominations. Julie Bowen, though, did get a nomination for best supporting actress. (ABC)
‘Two and a Half Men’
Jon Cryer had been nominated seven consecutive times for his role on the long-running CBS comedy “Two and a Half Men,” and he even won just last year. This year, Cryer was shut out of the nominations. (Eddy Chen / CBS)
‘The Good Wife’
Julianna Margulies has been nominated three times for her role on the CBS drama “The Good Wife,” and she won in 2011. But this year, she wasn’t even nominated. (David M. Russell / CBS)
‘The Office’
Many felt that NBC’s long-running comedy improved a bit as it headed into its final stretch of episodes, but not enough, apparently, to be recognized by the TV academy. Despite six previous nominations and a win for best comedy series, “The Office” went off the air without a nomination for best comedy series. The final episode did, however, receive three nominations, including one for writing. (Chris Haston / NBC)
Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s sketch comedy series got a two-season renewal and a Peabody Award, but it still didn’t land a nomination for outstanding variety series. It did receive nominations for writing and directing, however. (Frank DiMarco / IFC)
Michael C. Hall’s five-year streak of nominations for best actor in a drama series for “Dexter” has been broken. The series about a Miami police forensics expert who moonlights as a serial killer is currently airing its final season. Will the TV academy remember him this time next year? (Randy Tepper / Associated Press)
‘Sons of Anarchy’
Six seasons on and “Sons of Anarchy” still has only one Emmy nomination -- for main title music -- to its name. This year didn’t change things. There’s always next year for Ron Perlman and the much-loved biker drama. (Prashant Gupta / FX)
‘Arrested Development’
Netflix’s other original production, “House of Cards,” did well for itself, but “Arrested Development” didn’t get a nomination for outstanding comedy series. Jason Bateman did get a nomination for lead actor and the editing and music were also singled out. (Sam Urdank / Netflix)
‘Boardwalk Empire’
The critical and Emmy favorite received 10 nominations, but none for star Steve Buscemi, who was nominated the past two years. (Macall B. Polay / HBO)
‘The Amazing Race’
After four straight years of being nominated for outstanding host of a reality competition program, “The Amazing Race’s” Phil Keoghan was snubbed. The reality show champ (“Race” has won 14 Emmys) did get nominated for outstanding reality competition once again. (Monty Brinton / CBS)
‘The Walking Dead’
It’s the most popular drama on TV, but the gore apparently proved too much for the sensibilities of the Emmy voters. The zombie series received just one nomination for prosthetic makeup and was shut out of all the writing, directing and acting categories. (Gene Page / Associated Press)
