2012 Emmy Nominations: Hugh Laurie, Jeff Probst & More Snubs & Surprises
Not everyone had a reason to celebrate this morning after Jimmy Kimmel and Kerry Washington announced the 64th annual Primetime Emmy nominations. There were a few names noticeably missing from the list, which has caused quite a stir among Hollywood.

NBC didn’t get much love at all. The Office, Community and Parks and Recreation were overlooked. The Voice, however, did get a nom in Reality Competition, beating out the usually ever-so-popular American Idol.
It was widely expected that Hugh Laurie would receive a seventh nomination for his work on House, especially given that the Fox show just completed its final season, but the British actor will have to be happy with the two Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild awards he won in the past.
Another shock is Survivor host Jeff Probst. Everyone thought he was in shoo-in because he has been nominated for four straight years for the Reality Competition Host category and has won three times, but TV darling Betty White dazzled the academy with her Off Their Rockers bit, and a nod went to her.
Glee started off its first season with a bang scoring 20 noms and earning four awards, but now, the musical dramedy's third season only picked up three nods.

Other surprise snubs include talk show host Conan O'Brien, Mireille Eros of AMC’s The Killing, and Kyra Sedgwick for her final season of TNT’s The Closer.
And while Julianna Margulies can be happy she snagged a lead nom for The Good Wife, her show and co-stars were not so lucky.
The Emmys will air Sept. 23 on ABC.
