Not surprisingly, Mad Men led the way at this year’s Emmy Awards with 19 nominations. But one major surprise was that David Simon‘s Treme didn’t pick up a single nomination. Not even for music! On a show about music! Ouch.
That’s a huge snub for a show that got much better this year after picking up two nominations last year–against much stiffer competition. Breaking Bad was in the running back then. We thought for sure Treme would clean up this year. It’s a good thing the show was already picked up for a third season by HBO. Because it certainly doesn’t bring in a whole lot of viewers. Critical success is its bread and butter.
Full, exhaustive list of nominees, sans Treme, after the jump.
