“American Horror Story” fans are angry. Although the hit FX drama had a whopping 19 nominations for the 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards, the spooky series seemed to be repeatedly snubbed throughout the 67th annual award show -- and gore lovers definitely took notice.

Not only did the chilling series lose Outstanding Miniseries to “Olive Kitteridge,” but the installment also missed out on taking home the coveted statuette for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie -- despite having three “AHS” actresses nominated in that specific category.

“AHS: Freak Show” actresses Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates made up 50 percent of the nominees but ultimately lost to Regina King for her role in “American Crime.”
“AHS” did, however, win five creative-art Emmy awards. The series earned the titles of Outstanding Hairstyling, Outstanding Special Visual Effects, Outstanding Costumes, Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup and Outstanding Makeup ahead of the 2015 show Sunday in Los Angeles.
The dark dramedy, created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, was also nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor, Outstanding Directing, Outstanding Music Composition and more.
“American Horror Story” will return with Season 5 “Hotel” Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. EDT on FX.
