Primetime Emmy Awards nominations were unveiled Thursday and recognized ABC's "Modern Family" for the eighth year in a row to the dissatisfaction of several Twitter users.

"Modern Family," which has been picked up by its network for two more seasons, received Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy (Ty Burell as Phil Dunphy) and Outstanding Comedy Series. "Modern Family" has won 17 Emmy's throughout its run.

Some of the stars from the long-running ABC comedy series shared their excitement. Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell Pritchett on the hit show, was the first star to comment on the announcement. He said, "I can't believe that @ModernFam has been invited to the @TheEmmys for the 8th year in a row. Truly humbled. Congrats to all the nominees!"

Rico Rodriguez, who plays Manny Delgado on "Modern Family," also wrote on Twitter, saying, "Words cannot describe how blessed I am feeling right now. Thank you to the @TelevisionAcad for this amazing nomination @ModernFam #Emmys."

While those involved in the ABC project are pleased with the news, Twitter users largely weren't. One reason could be because of streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon were arguably snubbed. They expressed their frustration with the Emmy's continual support of non-fresh titles like "Modern Family," instead of giving a chance to other shows.

The New York Times agreed with Twitter users Thursday, reporting the Emmys showed unwavering support for "Modern Family." They claimed it was "was solid eons ago," and dubbed it the "dumbest" nomination recipient on this year's roster. "There is absolutely no reason 'Modern Family' should be nominated ever, ever again," the Times wrote.

HBO's "Insecure," Amazon's "Transparent" and NBC's "The Good Place" were television shows Twitter users wished Emmy's voters would acknowledge in the Outstanding Comedy Series category. These titles are also among a long list of several high profile television program's that were snubbed from the nominations lineup across the board.

Following the confirmation of the program's nomination streak, Twitter users who spoke out in opposition of this news allowed "Modern Family" to become a trending topic on the website.

"Modern Family" is slated to enter its ninth season this fall, but ABC has not confirmed an official premiere date for the comedy series. The show revolves around the lives of three related families as they deal with their problems in comedic ways. Told from the perspective of a documentary, viewers get to experience the ongoings of the families lives in an open and honest manner. Burell, Ferguson, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Sarah Hyland and Ariel Winter are among the show's 10 primary cast members.

Moving into the series' ninth and tenth seasons, the all-star cast secured new contract deals that include a raise in pay. The deal includes 44 episodes, with 22 given to each season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

ABC has not confirmed whether the tenth season of "Modern Family" will serve as its final season.
