Well, the good news is that "The Leftovers" got itself trending again, one month after the series finale. But this time there are no gushing tweets of love for the show and its cast. There's only fury at the 2017 Emmy Awards for blowing off what fans consider to be one of the greatest shows of all time.
HBO shows always clean up at the Emmys -- and "Westworld" leads this year's pack with 22 nods -- but "The Leftovers" got one single nomination: Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for Ann Dowd as Patti Levin. (Her competition includes Alexis Bledel of "The Handmaid's Tale" and Shannon Purser of "Stranger Things." Yes, Barb got an Emmy nod.)
Carrie Coon gave an iconic performance as Nora Durst, but she got no love for "The Leftovers." Instead, she's nominated for Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie for "Fargo." Justin Theroux, who had the starring role of Kevin Garvey, was not nominated at all. And even though seven shows were nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, "The Leftovers" was not one of them.
Fans. Are. Pissed.
I am physically ill thinking about the lack of Emmy nominations for The leftovers and @carriecoon— Megan Amram (@meganamram) July 13, 2017
So, quick Emmy thought. The Drama categories are now the What Was Second-Best to The Leftovers categories.— James Poniewozik (@poniewozik) July 13, 2017

It's not the heat, it's the complete disregard for The Leftovers, one of the greatest television series of all time.— Louis Peitzman (@LouisPeitzman) July 13, 2017

Carrie Coon not getting an Emmy nomination for #TheLeftovers is The Wire not getting any noms level stupid.— VandasParlow (@kobe42085) July 13, 2017
Carrie Coon deserved all the Emmys for Nora. All of them. Here's the list of nominations the Emmys went with instead. The show airs Sunday, September 17 on CBS.
