Emmys 2022 has seen Ted Lasso and The White Lotus win big, but there are always losers, and this year’s snubs include some of the better shows to have come out in recent times.

While Jason Sudeikis’ Ted Lasso soared, his Saturday Night Live alum, Bill Hader, didn’t do as well. Barry stars the comedian as a hitman who tries to change his life and begin as an actor in Los Angeles. However, he develops ties with the Bolivian mob and has to kill more people to protect his identity. Barry realizes that the past is not so easily shaken in this wryly crafted comedy. Despite 14 nominations, Barry didn’t see much luck on the awards night.

Only Murders in the Building seemed like a strong competitor with 17 nods, but the series about New York building tenants trying to solve a murder and running a podcast didn’t fare too well. However, the Selena Gomez-starrer remains incredibly praised and enjoys commercial success. 

Netflix’s Stranger Things also didn’t do well despite the 13 nominations it scored. The same goes for the previous Emmy’s darling The Marvelous Mrs Maisel. 

The award ceremony also shut out the critically acclaimed Better Call Saul and newcomer, Yellowjackets.

Better Call Saul is the AMC spinoff to Breaking Bad and aired its final season. Despite not making as many waves as the Bryan Cranston-Aaron Paul starring show, Bob Odenkirk quietly delivered a brilliant performance as a lawyer who’s not afraid to cut corners. Odenkirk was picked for best drama actor, while Rhea Seehorn, who plays Kim Wexler, bagged her first Emmy nod for best-supporting actress in a drama category. 

However, Seehorn lost out to Ozark’s Julia Garner, who won the third Emmy of her career thanks to the role of Ruth Langmore on the Netflix series, which ironically got compared to Breaking Bad when it first came out.
