The 2017 Emmy Nominations' Most Heartbreaking Snubs

Bates Motel, The White Princess, Reign were among the most heartbreaking 2017 Emmy snubs
Another year of Emmy nominations can only mean one thing: another year of snubs. The 2017 Emmy nominations proved to be no exception. It was an especially brutal year for retiring series and departing actors' final performances. As the 2017 Emmy nominations marked their last chance to be recognized.

With “Game of Thrones” voluntarily out of the running, there was room for other series to make their mark. For long-time readers of Eclectic Pop, the well-known favorites depressingly ignored are easy to guess. Nevertheless, these are the Emmy snubs that have been the hardest to process.

Writing About: 'The OA' Season 1 on Netflix - Theories & Clues

Alternative poster for The OA on Netflix
“The OA” is one of the rare shows to take a real-world approach to a science-fiction story. A sort of "Friday Night Lights" meets "Lost." The Netflix original was co-created by indie darlings Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij. If those names sound familiar that is because they are the geniuses behind the indie thrillers, “Sound of My Voice” and “The East.”

As both of the aforementioned Marling/Batmanglij projects tend to do, “The OA” quickly entangles viewers within its intricate web of grounded mystery and sci-fi wonderment. So much of what drives “The OA” is how it works like a Rorschach to reveal your answers to its questions.
