"The People v. O.J. Simpson" Grabs 22 Emmy Nominations

The nominations for the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards were announced Thursday morning, and while many had reason to celebrate, not everyone was quite so lucky.

Below, THR rounds up some of the most surprising shows, actors and other TV talent that failed to get a nomination:

• Julianna Margulies, who previously won twice for her lead role on The Good Wife, failed to score a nomination for the show's final season.

• Uzo Aduba, another previous winner, was not nominated for her role in Orange Is the New Black.

• Rachel Bloom, who won a Golden Globe in January for her role in Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, was left out of the outstanding actress in a comedy series category.

The Daily Show, which swept the Emmys for years, failed to secure a nomination for outstanding talk show.
