LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - What?! How could they?! Are you serious?! What-what-what ... You mean they nominated THAT one, but not THAT one??

Yup. With plenty of fresh shows invading the major Emmy categories this year, it means competition was tougher than ever -- and some of the usual honorees were left in the cold. Overall, the Academy actually did a pretty good job of avoiding snubs that were flat-out jaw-droppers, but there's still plenty to complain about for fans.

Below is a list of those weeping bitter Emmy tears this a.m.:

-- HBO's "Entourage," along with co-star Jeremy Piven, were mercifully squeezed out of the comedy series and supporting comedy actor categories, respectively. Piven's actually won the past three years, and "Entourage" was nominated for each.

-- Though practically every member of the cast of "Modern Family" received an Emmy nomination, Ed O'Neill, oddly, did not.

-- NBC's "Community" was shut out, while "Parks and Recreation" only scored for star Amy Poehler.

-- OK, this one stings a bit: "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" left out of the reality category despite one of the show's best seasons ever.

-- "House" didn't make the cut among drama series this year.   Continued...
