“The Good Wife” was not included in the 2014 Primetime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Drama. The CBS hit lost out to cable shows and a British import.
“The Good Wife” follows Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) as she returns to work as a litigator at a law firm after her husband was arrested. The drama shows Alicia attempting to balance her work life with her personal and family life. “The Good Wife” finished Season 5 in May and continues to be praised by critics. While the snub is disappointing for fans, they might not be completely surprised. The show has not been nominated for Outstanding Drama since 2011.
The category has been taken over by cable hits. “Breaking Bad,” “Game of Thrones,” “House of Cards,” “Mad Men” and “True Detective” all scored nominations along with British import “Downton Abbey.” The only broadcast television nominee is “Scandal.”
“The Good Wife” wasn’t overlooked in every category. The actors and casting were still commended. Take a look at the nominees below:
Julianna Margulies -- Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama
Dylan Baker -- Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama
Christine Baranski -- Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama
Josh Charles -- Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama
Mark Saks -- Outstanding Casting For A Drama Series
Season 6 of “The Good Wife” will air in the fall on CBS and The 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards will air on Monday, Aug. 25, at 8 p.m. EDT.
