Technically the Television Academy announced the 2014 Emmy nominations today. But really, they might as well have just announced which shows and actors got snubbed, because that's pretty much all people are talking about.

Of course, the reason for all the snubs is that there are literally so many good shows on television that the Academy can't possibly nominate them all. But when it's your favorite show that got snubbed, you don't want to here that sh*t.

So what was the biggest snub this year? Well, judging by the rage on social media—which is pretty much always right—that would have to be Tatiana Maslany. People don't seem to mind too much that her show, Orphan Black, got snubbed in the drama category. However, they feel pretty strongly that she should have gotten a nod in the best drama actress category. And they probably have a point, seeing as how she played like two dozen characters.

Other snubs that pissed off the internet? In addition to Orphan Black, neither The Good Wife, Homeland, nor The Americans got nominated for best drama. Meanwhile, over in comedies, Brooklyn Nine-Nine got zilch despite winning the Golden Globe earlier this year, while critical faves like Parks & Recreation and The Mindy Project also got boned.

Oh, it's worth noting that, for the first time since 1994, The Simpsons didn't get a nomination for best animated series. And the Academy also did not feel inclined to throw late night legend David Letterman a bone in his final year behind the Late Show desk. Neither he nor his writers got a single nomination.

But okay, fine. Who did get nominated? You can find a complete, printable list right here.

The Awards will be handed out Monday, August 25. They'll probably be on TV, if your interested.
