Emmy nominations: The most shocking snubs.

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Here’s the latest on the 67th annual Primetime Emmy nominations announced Thursday in West Hollywood, California, by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (all times local): “I’m kind of in shock right now.Canadian actress Tatiana Maslany has earned her first nomination for TV’s most prominent awards, the Emmys, for her turn in the sci-fi hit Orphan Black.

I flew in from Paris last night, so I was extremely jetlagged,” Latifah said in a telephone interview Thursday morning. “I was having the nicest morning. Even with the TV Academy expanding the big outstanding series categories in the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards to include seven nominees instead of six for 2015 — and Tatiana Maslany’s surprise inclusion — there was still plenty of Twitter-rage this morning as fan favorites were denied, shut out, ignored and utterly dismissed by Emmy voters as not being … quite … good …. enough. The Regina actress, who has already earned accolades for the role, faces stiff competition for the best drama actress title from top Hollywood names, including Claire Danes (Homeland), Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder), Taraji P. I’m excited.” Latifah said the 12 Emmy nominations for “Bessie” were a win for the project, which was in the works for 20 years before premiering on HBO earlier this year. “I’m just really, really happy that people received this film the way they did and my performance in it as well,” Latifah said. “This was truly a labor of love and something people needed to see.” “Modern Family” and “Mad Men” each received best series nominations Thursday in their respective categories. If it wins in September, “Modern Family” would have the most Emmy wins for a comedy series, overtaking “Frasier.” If “Mad Men” wins, it would become most-honored dramatic series, surpassing “Hill Street Blues,” ”L.A.

Toronto director Jeremy Podeswa earned a nomination for helming a controversial episode of Game of Thrones, while Calgary-raised screenwriter Semi Chellas was recognized as part of the writing ensemble for Mad Men. The Honorable Woman, an international co-production broadcast on CBC-TV, will also compete in multiple Emmy categories, including best limited series and best actress in a limited series or movie for Maggie Gyllenhaal. The actress was nominated Thursday in the best comedy actress category for her work on the HBO series “Veep” and issued a statement with the expediency of a busy head-of-state. “As President, my staff and I are too busy doing the people’s business to watch television,” Louis-Dreyfus wrote in a statement issued roughly 10 minutes after the nominations were announced. “Nonetheless, we are thrilled to be a part of this celebration of creativity. (Go Jon Hamm!)” Television’s most popular comedy, “The Big Bang Theory” on CBS, was not nominated for best comedy, and star Jim Parsons received no love as best actor. Organizers announced the 2015 nominees from Hollywood Thursday morning, with two stars of fan-favourite shows — Orange is the New Black actress Uzo Aduba and So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley — unveiling the contenders.

Hosted by comic actor Andy Samberg, the 2015 Emmy Awards will be held at the recently renamed Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sept. 20 and broadcast live on Fox. Thankfully, HBO’s geek-love seires Silicone Valley deservedly scored another series nod (maybe next year Thomas Middleditch will get recognized?). 6. Reporters grabbed last-minute bites of pastries and sips of coffee before the announcement, while press packets with details about the nominees were parked on a cart outside the theater and closely watched by academy personnel.

Ignoring FX’s The Americans, however, is tougher to explain given its overwhelming critical acclaim, especially since this was the show’s best year.
