2016 TCA Awards: ‘Outlander,’ ‘Jane the Virgin,’ ‘House of Cards,’ ‘Orange is the New Black’ among snubs
Earlier today, the Television Critics Association announced their full list of nominations for the 2016 TCA Awards (view here), and by and large, it is a predictable list. “Mr. Robot” and “The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story” received a flurry of nominations, and some other programs like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “UnREAL” also received plenty of love.
So what about the shows that were unfortunately snubbed? Here are a few that caught our eye almost right away.
“Orange is the New Black” – Despite being a perennial Emmy contender, especially for Uzo Aduba, the Netflix drama left empty-handed here in terms of nominations.
“Jane the Virgin” – Despite Jaime Camil hosting the awards show this year, the CW series got no love. “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” may have ended up taking some of its thunder.
“Outlander” – While seeing the Starz drama snubbed by awards shows not named the Golden Globes is sadly familiar, we thought that Caitriona Balfe was especially deserving for her excellent work this season.
“House of Cards” – No love for Frank Underwood or anyone else with the Netflix drama.
“Homeland” – Despite a creative comeback, it couldn’t net any big nominations.
“Empire” – Season 2 wasn’t the best, but it was still far and away the most-watched network drama. Seeing it ignored was a little bit of a surprise.
“Transparent” – It was not too long ago that both this show and Jeffrey Tambor were awards-show darlings. However, this time around neither turned up on the list in one of the more surprising overall snubs.
The TCA Awards will be held in August; stay tuned for more coverage.
