Countdown to the Emmys: The Emmy SNUB Edition
It is impossible to have an awards show (or even an awards blog post at the end of the year, if reaction to some of our Best and Worst lists is anything to go by) of any kind where everyone is in agreement that all of the nominees, across the board, were deserving. Instead, it's become a time honored tradition to loudly rail against the Daytime Emmys (and the Oscars, and the primetime Emmys, and the Golden Globes and insert the name of another awards show here, except not the Grammys because nobody cares about the Grammys) for failing to recognize certain performers, and OMFG are the 2010 Daytime Emmys no exception.
Many actors and actresses who deserve, really, to win the whole shebang aren't even in contention. Like, say, our pick for the biggest and most ridiculous snub: David Canary, who completely carried All My Children in 2009, turning in heartbreaking work in stories that did not deserve that level of talent. Really, watching Adam mourn Stuart should have led people to just engrave the damn Emmy with his name on it then and there, and then it turns out that he's not even nominated?! Sometimes, all you can do is italicize exclamation points to convey your horror: !!!!!!!
But he's not the only major snub. Which do you think is the biggest? And, of course, if your pick isn't listed here, make it known in the comments.
General Hospital may have been the most nominated soap this year (which...egads. E-fucking-gads), but there were some notable GH omissions.
