Emmy Nominations: 'Roseanne' Snubbed as 'Handmaid's Tale' and 'Game of Thrones' Dominate
There wasn't much Emmy love for Roseanne Barr's sitcom following her racist Twitter rant.
The "Roseanne" reboot was snubbed during Thursday’s announcement of the Primetime Emmy Award nominations.
The show, which was canceled after the sitcom's star, Roseanne Barr, fired off a racist tweet last month, was skipped over for outstanding comedy series.
Laurie Metcalf was the only "Roseanne" cast member to receive a nomination.
"There was a lot going on with 'Roseanne' around the time the Emmy nomination voting was starting to happen and I think that does play a role in it," Jessica Radloff, the west coast editor of Glamour magazine, told Inside Edition.
With 129 nods through the years, "Game of Thrones" is the most nominated show ever, and led the 2018 field with 22 Emmy nominations.
Another HBO program, "Westworld," and "Saturday Night Live" are a close second with 21 nods each.
The announcements were made by "The Blacklist" star Ryan Eggold and "The Handmaid's Tale" actress Samira Wiley, who was among the nominees. The Hulu show picked up 20 nominations in total.
The Emmys will air Sept. 17 on NBC.
