Get the Full StoryNetflix

We've been living in the age of Peak TV for years and there's more to watch than ever before.

The Emmy Awards are supposed to represent the best that television has to offer, but that's not always the case. With more than 9100 submissions across 102 categories, Emmy voters had a lot to consider in 2018 and they definitely didn't get to watch it all.

On Thursday, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced the 2018 nominees, and while they mostly got it right recognizing "The Americans," "Game of Thrones," "This Is Us," "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," and "Atlanta," there are a few nominations that are throwing us for a loop.

Here are the shows and stars that really haven't earned their place in the this year's Emmys race."Stranger Things 2" Netflix


The second season of the 80s-set Netflix series was fun to watch, but "Stranger Things 2" had a lot of problems, including annoying new characters and a bloated episode count that dragged the story on for far too long.

"Curb Your Enthusiasm" HBO


HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" returned for its ninth season in 2017 and felt like a relic from another era after what amounted to a long six-year hiatus. Critics largely agreed that the show felt out of touch, tired, and dated in today's TV landscape. But Emmy voters seem to think otherwise having nominated the show and its creator, Larry David, for awards once again.

"Westworld" HBO


The first season of "Westworld" was fantastic and deserved to be celebrated as such, but season two was a downright mess. The HBO show became too complicated for its own good and viewers lost interest along the way. While many of the show's cast members picked up nominations that are deserved, the series' second season as a whole really shouldn't be lauded as good television.
