• 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.
