While “The Crown,” “The Mandalorian” and “WandaVision” secured Emmy nominations on Tuesday, there were quite a few shows — and actors — that didn’t make the cut.

And then there were the shows and performers that no one expected to show up on the ballot.

We’ll have to wait until September to see who ends up taking Emmys home, but here are some of the programs that were among the most surprising nominations and the ones that got snubbed.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the full list of nominees for this year’s Emmys, you can do so here.

Snub: “Small Axe”

Steve McQueen’s critically-acclaimed anthology “Small Axe,” which earned actor John Boyega a Golden Globe award earlier this year, got little recognition from the Television Academy. The series, which consists of five films that tell distinct stories about the lives of West Indian immigrants in London from the 1960s to the 1980s, only received one nomination — best cinematography.

Surprise: Ewan McGregor, “Halston”

Ryan Murphy’s “Halston,” a look into the life of the legendary designer, was criticized for being all style with little substance. Still it seems actor Ewan McGregor’s charisma in the lead role was enough to land him an Emmy nomination for best actor in a limited series.

Snub: Pedro Pascal, “The Mandalorian”

“The Mandalorian” may have been tied for the most Emmy nominations with 24, but lead actor Pedro Pascal was left off the best actor ballot for the drama series.

Some have speculated that Pascal wasn’t considered last year because he spends most of the series with his iconic helmet on and he was aided by two stunt men who take turns wearing the bounty hunter’s suit. Still, there’s enough of a performance from Pascal, even with the clunky armor, to warrant a nod.

Surprise: “Hamilton”

There is no doubt that “Hamilton,” a Tony Award-winning spectacle, is a masterpiece. However, many were confused when the filmed production nabbed 12 Emmys on Tuesday.

Disney+, which streamed “Hamilton,” was permitted to categorize the project as a prerecorded variety special, which it did for the technical Emmy categories. However, because there is no longer a variety performer category, the Television Academy allowed Disney to submit its actors and actresses under the TV movie umbrella.

“Hamilton” ultimately secured seven different acting nominations across the lead and supporting categories.

Daveed Diggs, Okieriete Onaodowan, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr. and Anthony Ramos star in “Hamilton.”
