The 2016 Emmy nominations are in. They were announced by Lauren Graham and Anthony Anderson who couldn't contain himself as he announced his own nomination on "Black-ish" along with his co-star Tracee Ellis Ross and one for the overall series.

FX, a network that has been snubbed in past years, made a good showing with "The Americans" finally receiving its due along with "The People v. O.J. Simpson American Crime Story" and "Fargo."

It's a low bar to clear, but unlike with Oscars you won't see the hashtag #EmmysSoWhite trending. "Black-ish" got its three nominations, Aziz Ansari and "Master Of None" got noms, and Taraji P. Henson, Tituss Burgess, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis and Idris Elba all earned a nod from the Emmys.

But we all know you really came here for the snubs:

Some of the biggest snubs were "Orange Is the New Black" (which had zero nominations), Julianna Margulies in her last season of "The Good Wife" and generally The CW network, whose critically acclaimed "Jane The Virgin" and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" got no love. Constance Zimmer got a nom in the supporting actress category but we at LAist HQ would love to see Lifetime's "UnREAL" get some more love. "Full Frontal," the only late-night talk show helmed by a woman, is crushing it but got snubbed. Voters weren't enamored with "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" either. "The Daily Show" spinoff "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" did get a well-deserved nomination.
