And The Winner Is NOT... 10 Great Shows The Emmys Completely Snubbed

And The Winner Is NOT... 10 Great Shows The Emmys Completely Snubbed

Emmy_LeadThis Sunday at 8 p.m. eastern, Jimmy Fallon, Complex's April/May 2010 Shotcaller, is going to host The 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards live on NBC. While that's super cool and we're really happy for him, we already know the show will leave us disappointed. Why? Some of our favorite shows didn't even receive a single nomination! Apparently they aren't "outstanding" enough, and neither are any of the lead, supporting, and guest actors on them. Well, screw that. We're recognizing our joints anyway. Check out 10 great shows the Emmys snubbed...

Emmy_SOA

SONS OF ANARCHY (FX)
Should've been nominated for: Outstanding Drama
Complex says: Through two badass seasons, this show about a gunrunning California motorcycle gang with serious internal and external conflicts continues to rev our engine. A cross between Sopranos, Shakespeare's Hamlet, and Easy Rider, it consistently makes us wanna shoot some whiskey, pop the top off a beer, light a cigarette, and take off on a bike with a biker chick wrapped around us, free bird style. Unfortunately doing all that on our 10-speed Schwinn looks pretty soft batch.

Emmy_Community

COMMUNITY (NBC)
Should've been nominated for: Outstanding Comedy
Complex says: We fantasize not so secretly about going back to college to blow off classes, eat cereal for dinner, and nail 20-year-old chicks. That may be why we love this banger about a suspended lawyer (The Soup's Joel McHale) who's forced to attend community college to replace his "Colombia" degree. It could also be that the ragtag and riotous gang of losers he ends up kicking it with is played by the smoking hot Alison Brie, our dude Donald Glover (a.k.a. rapper Childish Gambino), and motherfuckin' Chevy Chase, and his nemesis is a fraudulent Spanish prof played by the always villainous Ken Jeong (with his penis thankfully unexposed). We have no idea why the Emmy Awards are fronting on this collegiate classic, but they need to learn though!

Emmy_The_League

THE LEAGUE (FX)
Should've been nominated for: Outstanding Comedy
Complex says: If there's one thing that we don't need more of on TV, it's hilarious shows where side-splitting comedians like Nick Kroll, Paul Scheer, and Jonathan Lajoie tackle a subject we haven't seen before, like the phenomenon that is fantasy football. So, you know, congrats on not fumbling the ball on this one, Academy of Television Arts & Sciences!

Emmy_Spartacus

SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND (STARZ)
Should've been nominated for: Outstanding Drama
Complex says: It probably should've been called Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Full Frontal Nudity, but this action-filled drama based on the Spartacus tale is far more complex and emotional than comic book violence and sex would suggest. But we still suggest you watch this for the gore and pubic hair.

Emmy_Archer

ARCHER (FX)
Should've been nominated for: Outstanding Comedy
Complex says: You are being lied to. Laughter is the best medicine, and your government, or at least the Emmy committee, doesn't want you to know that this cartoon about a narcissistic secret agent and man-slut with mommy issues (she's his boss and she's boinking the enemy) is the cure-all for the world's problems. And animated Aisha Tyler as his partner and voluptuous ex is a remedy for erectile dysfunction.
