NEW YORK (AP) — The Emmy nominations are in, and while many shows and stars received recognition, so many more were overlooked.

This May 5, 2017 image released by NBC shows Kate McKinnon as Mika Brzezinski, left, and Alex Moffat as Joe Scarborough in a sketch from, "Saturday Night Live," in New York. McKinnon was nominated for an Emmy Award for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series on Thursday, July 13, 2017.

How could Starz network's sci-fi series "American Gods" be snubbed? Or TBS' comedy "Angie Tribeca"? Or actress and media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who wasn't nominated for role in the HBO series "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks"?

For fans of the shows that received Emmy's cold shoulder, Thursday's announcements signaled head-scratching and teeth-gnashing.

Not to mention raised eyebrows. NBC's "Saturday Night Live" may be funny. But how did it manage 22 nominations, tying HBO's drama "Westworld" for the most Emmy love?
