Lea Michele Misses Out On Emmy Nomination — Thank God!

Thu, July 14, 2011 10:47am EDT by 25 Comments

Lea can sing and she sure has presence, but it was fantastic (sorry) to see her passed over for an Emmy nomination. But where is the love for Heather Morris?

Lea Michele is not having a great Thursday. It has just been announced the next season of Glee will be her last and now she has been passed over for an Emmy nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. The good news however? The incredibly deserving, and hysterical, Martha Plimpton and Melissa McCarthy scored noms in her place!

This is not to say Lea is not a great actress. She is amazing and has a wonderful voice, she is just not Emmy material. Especially this season where she took a bit more of a backseat. If Glee fans want to be outraged about anything, it should be the snubs of this season’s two MVPs, Heather Morris and Naya Rivera. Where’s the Brittany and Santana love Emmy voters?

Martha and Melissa will be up against holdovers Amy Poheler, Edie Falco and Tina Fey as well as perennial awards show nominee Laura Linney for The Big C. Personally, I would love to see Martha walk away with this. Raising Hope, which oddly enough follows Glee on Tuesdays, is one of the funniest and most underrated shows on television. Seriously folks, check it out.

And on another note, go Friday Night Lights!

So HollywoodLifers, are you happy Lea missed out on a nom or do you think she deserved one?

Ok, I just started watching Glee (my daughter got me hooked) and yes, Rachel Berry and Sue Sylvester are my 2 fav characters BUT… a show about high school show choir isn’t Emmy material. Nip Tuck, Dexter to name a few which addresses real life scenario that people can relate to is Emmy material.

First off Heather would not be in the same category as Lea. And second if anyone else should have been nominated for a supporting role it would have been Naya not Heather. Heather is a great dancer but her acting is average at best. Half her lines are mumbled.

A true professional like Lea probably cringes at Heather’s line delivery. On stage you learn to enunciate.

I think Lea is extremely talented and the clear star of Glee, but the childish and mean-spirited comments here from some “fans” here are off putting to say the least and do Lea more harm than good. Are you incapable of praising Lea without simultaneously bashing Heather Morris, who is not only innocent in all this but seems to also be friends with Lea? And just fyi True, this is not at all the only source to praise Heather for the past season; she was in fact the only Glee actor that Entertainment Weekly mentioned in its dream nominations article a few weeks back.

Maybe they were EW’s dream nominations because they were so far-fetched? I like Heather, I love seeing her on the show, but come on now, the girl is no Emmy level actor. Lea is. Heather was picked because she could dance and given the occasional funny line. The audience liked her random ridiculous one-liners so Glee producers made the mistake of giving her more material and she clearly demonstrated she couldn’t pull off anything more than simple comic relief this past season. It’s not a slight toward Heather to say she doesn’t compare to Lea Michele in acting ability. I think even Heather would agree that this article is ridiculous and obviously just an attempt to throw dirt on Lea than actually applaud Heather’s performance. Heather’s good at what she does..being funny and dancing but she won’t be winning any acting awards any time soon.

Heather Morris a better actor than Lea Michele?? Hahahaha OMG let me die of laughter right now. LMAO wow..I don’t think I’ve ever read something more ridiculous. Who wrote this? Heather’s mom? I know Hollywoodlife isn’t actually a legit publication but shouldn’t even crappy tabloid sites like this at least attempt the whole “unbiased journalism” thing? I mean, I know there’s no actual journalist working for this site but they should really try to make sure the middle-schoolers they hire to write this garbage understand what unbiased means. This person obvious has a grudge against Lea Michele…or maybe they’re just deaf, dumb and blind. Oh man… Heather an Emmy contender…I can’t stop laughing. LOL.

this site uses anything they find to bash lea, i really hope that she ignore hollywood people from now on, this hating fest that you guys do against her is bullying.
lea michele is a phenomenal actress but the script in season 2 sucked big time, and without a good script actors can’t really show their potential, i think lea did an amazing job with the crappy season 2 script.
hollywood life can’t recognize her talent because they hate lea too much for this, leave her alone.

Wow, not Emmy material? How would you know who’s Emmy material? Like what the heck, that is so rude! I’ll admit that I didn’t like this season of Glee, but that doesn’t mean that Lea Michele is a bad actress. In fact I think she’s a great actress and defiantly Emmy material.
Oh and FYI, I think she knew Rachel would be off after the next season. Ryan Murphy has been talking about graduating some of the Glee characters since like forever.

Clearly the writer of this article is a bitter Brittana fan and a Lea Michele hater. Girl is insanely talented, and deserves better than the crap writing she gets on that show. Heather Morris? Naya Rivera? The only thing Naya Rivera is deserving of is an Emmy for biggest slut, as she slept her way to a story line. A+ for effort, if your intention was to get people to read about your Naya and Heather love by using Lea’s name…. job well done.

haha who would Naya have slept with to get a better story line? They are all gay! Lea and Naya are both great actresses.. no need to bring one down to make the other better.

maybe if the reporters on this site weren’t blind with hate against lea michele they would recognize the good actress she is, maybe hollywood life reporters should read the critics about her job.
not hollywoodlife critics, because even if she is great you guys always hate her.
leave lea alone, the fandon is right when they say she should ignore this site.

this site hate agenda against lea michele is scary, lea michele is a talented actress just read the critics reviews about her work(no kristen benson and her hate against lea michele and andy something don’t count as critics, read the real ones). are you saying that she is not emmy materia? seriously? i don’t know if you watched glee last season but the message was “bullying is a bad thing” maybe the staff of hollywood life should watch glee to learn something.

lea michele not getting a nom is a reflection of not development character arc and poor writing or lack of it, it is a shame because she is a talented kid and could do so much more if they gavi her something to work with.
