    I'm really disappointed. They gave Jonathan Banks yet another nomination in that category (best supporting actor in a drama), but imo Michael deserved a nomination for his Chuck McGill performance, which was stellar.

    I agree with this article regarding the "snub":

    ^^^ Agreed. I love Jonathan Banks, but NO WAY was his performance better than Michael McKean's this season. That was MM's nomination.

    There were a number of other snubs this year that I found surprising and disappointing and some nominations I didn't think were deserved. I guess that's how it always goes with the Emmys.

    Totally agree. When it comes to awards (Emmys, Oscars, etc.) there are often surprises and sometimes jawdroppers. THIS was a jawdropper.

    I'm just sick about it.

    Lots of puzzled and angry people based on various internet comments.

    "As for Better Call Saul – and not to do down Jonathan Banks, who received a supporting actor nomination – it is a tragedy that Michael McKean wasn’t recognised. His knotty, stubborn, complicated portrayal of Chuck McGill wasn’t just a career-best performance for him, it was one of the best performances by anyone in TV all year. Banks said about six words the entire series, but McKean built up and destroyed an entire life. The fact that he won’t be able to compete in next year’s awards makes the snub sting even more."
