The fan-favorite drama was one of many shows to have been overlooked by the Television Academy this year, receiving only one nomination across the board.
When the major showbiz awards roll around each year, we’ve come to expect that even the most widely celebrated projects might miss out on some well-deserved nominations.
And this year’s Emmys appear to be no different, with a long list of shows and standout performances noticeably absent from the lineup of the 2022 nominees.
Among the snubs, fans have expressed arguably the most shock at the lack of nominations awarded to the NBC drama This Is Us, which received only a single nod from the Television Academy.
The show’s sixth and final season, which aired earlier this year, received rave reviews from viewers and critics alike, with many quick to assume that several of the leading actors would earn nods for their stellar performances.
Mandy Moore was among those expected to be recognized for her work in the family drama’s final season and didn’t shy away from expressing her disappointment that the show was overlooked.
“Do I wish our show was recognized in what I think was its finest hour? Sure,” Moore wrote on her Instagram story shortly after the nominations were announced.
“And Dan Fogelman’s brilliant writing for 6 seasons (hello THE TRAIN)? Ken Olin’s impeccable direction? Our insanely, wildly talented cast and crew? Yah….,” she told followers, before going on to make it clear that the show’s “incredible legacy” will remain unscathed.
“Nothing can take away what our show meant to SO MANY (us included),” she continued. “That’s an incredible legacy to be a part of. I will be grateful forever.”
She also took the time to celebrate the show’s one and only nomination for original music and lyrics for the song “The Forever Now,” which happened to be cowritten by her husband, Taylor Goldsmith.
“So unendingly proud of [Siddhartha Khosla] and [Taylor Goldsmith] for getting an Emmy nom for their song ‘Forever Now’ on our final season,” she said, later adding that she’s a “proud wife.”
Moore’s frustrations were later echoed by her costar Chrissy Metz, as well as the show’s creator Dan Fogelman, both of whom posted on social media to sharing their thoughts on the snub.
Of course, This Is Us was not the only successful show to have shockingly missed out on nominations, with Black-ish — also off the back of its final season — nabbing only two nods.
The show’s leads, Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, were also expected to be honored in the acting categories, but were ultimately not recognized.
And despite dominating conversations and news feeds over the course of its run last winter, HBO’s highly anticipated Sex and the City revival, And Just Like That, was left empty-handed across the board.
Other shows that failed to earn any nominations also include WeCrashed, Yellowstone, Reservation Dogs, Grace and Frankie, and Better Things.
As for the acting categories, Selena Gomez has topped many a list of snubbed actors after being overlooked for her highly praised performance in the comedy crime series Only Murders in the Building.
Representing a third of the show’s leading trio, along with Martin Short and Steve Martin, Gomez was the only one not to receive a nod for her work.
Also missing among the list of acting nominations was Jennifer Aniston, whose The Morning Show costar, Reese Witherspoon landed herself a nod in the Outstanding Female Lead category.
Similarly, fans of the Netflix series Maid were also shocked to see that Andie MacDowell’s performance went under the radar, while her castmate (and real-life daughter) Margaret Qualley earned a nomination for her work in the critically acclaimed drama.
And while Euphoria was among the most-nominated shows overall, boasting 16 nods, many viewers can’t help but feel that several of the drama’s lead actors deserved more recognition for their work.
Eric Dane, Maude Apatow, and Nika King stand out among their castmates as those who delivered powerful performances across the show’s second season but failed to receive nominations.
Despite the noteworthy snubs, series leads Zendaya and Sydney Sweeney copped nominations, along with Martha Kelly and Colman Domingo, who were honored for their work as guest actors on the show.

Olivia Wilde Wins Bid to Dismiss Jason Sudeikis Custody Case in New York
Staying put in the Golden State. A judge has granted Olivia Wilde’s request to dismiss ex Jason Sudeikis’ petition to move their custody battle from California to New York.
The Ted Lasso actor, 46, previously filed a petition reportedly stating that he hoped the pair could coparent their kids from the Big Apple, where the family previously lived — and where their two children, son Otis, 8, and daughter Daisy, 5, were born, according to records obtained by the Daily Mail.
Per documents obtained by Page Six on Wednesday, August 10, however, the judge presiding over the case ultimately sided with Wilde, 38, granting her motion to dismiss her former fiancé’s petition, which he was filed in October 2021.
“Both Judge Powell and this Referee agreed that New York was not the home state of the subject children; but rather California was the children’s home state,” the decision reportedly states. “This court finds that New York does not have jurisdiction to hear the custody petitions as New York is not the home state of the subject children.”
As a result of the ruling, the ongoing custody case will remain in California.
News of the ruling comes shortly after the Booksmart director fired back at the Saturday Night Live alum for serving her custody papers while she was on stage at CinemaCon in April.
The O.C. alum was presenting her upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling at the Las Vegas convention center when she received a manilla envelope marked “personal and confidential” in the middle of her speech.
Us Weekly confirmed at the time that the documents in question were from the Emmy winner, but a source exclusively revealed in April that the comedian wasn’t aware of when the actual delivery would happen. “Papers were drawn up to establish jurisdiction relating to the children of Ms. Wilde and Mr. Sudeikis,” the insider to Us. “He would never condone her being served in such an inappropriate manner.”
In response, however, Wilde filed court documents of her own in Los Angeles, alleging that Sudeikis attempted to “threaten” and “embarrass” her by publicly delivering the paperwork, per the Daily Mail. The filmmaker also claimed that the former couple had previously decided to allow their two little ones to complete the upcoming school year in L.A., while Sudeikis filmed the final season of Ted Lasso in London. The pair’s dispute began after the Virginia native allegedly changed his mind, instead hoping to live with Otis and Daisy on the east coast.
The New York native argued in her filing that Sudeikis and the “outrageous” Las Vegas stunt were calculated. “Jason’s actions were clearly intended to threaten me and catch me off guard. He could have served me discreetly, but instead, he chose to serve me in the most aggressive manner possible,” she claimed. “The fact that Jason would embarrass me professionally and put our personal conflict on public display in this manner is extremely contrary to our children’s best interests.”
The Lazarus Effect star added, “Because Jason has made it clear that we will not be able to work this out for our children’s sake outside the court system, I filed a petition for custody in Los Angeles.”
Sudeikis, for his part, reiterated in a separate filing that he didn’t intend for Wilde to receive the papers while on stage in Las Vegas, but instead wanted her to be served at London’s Heathrow Airport.
“I understand that the process server had only done her job; however, I deeply regret what happened,” the Horrible Bosses actor explained. “Olivia’s talk was an important event for Olivia, both professionally and personally, and I am very, very sorry that the incident marred her special moment.”
Sudeikis added that he also did not want the documents sent to the home of Harry Styles, who Wilde began dating in January 2021. “I did not want service to take place at the home of Olivia’s current partner because Otis and Daisy might be present,” he wrote.
The exes, who began dating in 2011, were engaged for seven years before calling it quits in November 2020.
Though their romance didn’t last, Wilde and Sudeikis initially had no problems with coparenting. “They’re doing their best at giving their kids a normal life,” a source explained to Us in July 2021. “The kids bring them back together since they are and always will be their number one priority.”

A Guide to Erika Jayne’s Legal Battles Through the Years
Erika Jayne has openly addressed her legal woes on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — but even more drama continued to play out off screen.
The TV personality’s legal troubles first made headlines in November 2020 after she filed for divorce from Tom Girardi. Erika, who joined the Bravo series alongside her then-husband in 2015, was later named in a fraud lawsuit that accused her and Tom of embezzling $2 million in settlement funds from plane crash victims.
The Georgia native continued to film RHOBH throughout the court battle, using the show as a way to assert her innocence. “Please understand, there are some things I cannot answer. But I will do my best to give every part of the story that I can,” she explained during the season 11 reunion in November 2021. “This is the toughest part of my life. And I asked for patience with the ladies — and got some and some I didn’t. I asked for an understanding that these things are complicated, that I was finding them out in real time myself, and I don’t have all the answers and still do not have all the answers to this day.”
Tom, for his part, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and later placed under a conservatorship amid his legal woes. The former attorney’s brother Robert Girardi was named the effective conservator of his person and estate in July 2021.
In May 2022, Erika opened up about having her personal issues be dissected front and center on RHOBH. “I am the face of this instead of the lawyers that worked at the firm and referring attorneys and, you know, law funding people — instead they point to me,” she exclusively told Us Weekly about dealing with the courtroom proceedings. “For my mental health, it’s been hard. No doubt. But again, I couldn’t lose and I was just going to fight it out every way possible and still am.”
The “Pretty Mess” performer noted that she struggled with handling the challenges on her own. “The season before was a real fallout. This season is about really trying to pull yourself together and go on. It was tough but ultimately, I’ll get there and it’s part of the human experience,” she added, telling Us that she “mixed alcohol and antidepressants” while cameras were rolling. “You can’t go through what I have gone through the previous season and not feel something. I wanted to have some fun and I wanted to not feel so heavy. So that’s what I did.”

Denise Richards Recalls Reconciling With Charlie Sheen After Baby No. 2
Giving it their all! Denise Richards reflected on the end of her marriage to Charlie Sheen, revealing that they tried to make it work for their daughters.
“It was very traumatic for me,” the 51-year-old star said on the Wednesday, August 10, episode of the “Divorced Not Dead” podcast of their split. “It was really difficult.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum was married for nearly three years before she initially filed for divorce in March 2005. Richards paused the legal proceedings after the pair welcomed their second daughter, Lola, in June 2005, but filed again in April 2006.
Looking back, the Illinois native — who also shares daughter Sami, 18, with the Ferris Bueller’s Day Off actor, 56 — doesn’t regret the exes’ attempt to make amends.
“I had so much guilt. My parents were still married until my mother passed away. So that’s the family I came from,” Richards explained on Wednesday. “And we did reconcile actually after for a very brief time, after our second daughter was born.”
The Bold and the Beautiful alum revealed that she is “glad” they reconnected, saying, “It made me also know I could one day tell my girls that I did everything I could possibly do to make this family unit.”
Richards confessed: “That’s what I felt the most guilty of was splitting up the family unit. I struggled with that for years. It was not easy, but at least I knew that I did everything that I could to make that work as much as possible and that I knew this isn’t right.”
While the former spouses have had their fair share of ups and downs — including custody disputes and child support arguments — the Real Girl Next Door author’s relationship with Sheen is still intact.
“To this day, Charlie does know he could call me at any time, no matter what,” she said. “I don’t care what he says or does — I will show up and be there because I always also wanted him, and still do, to be the best dad he can be for our daughters.”
The Love Accidentally actress, who adopted her third daughter, Eloise, in 2011, continued: “That is one thing that he does [understand]. No matter what he could say about me, he does know deep down … I will always be there.”
Richards noted that she will “not extort” the Two and a Half Men alum calling herself a “standup person” who just wants Sheen to be the “best version of himself and be there for our children.”
The former couple’s relationship has been strained in recent years after their eldest child Sami claimed in September 2021 that she was “trapped in an abusive household” while living with her mom and stepdad, Aaron Phypers, one year prior.
Sami alleged that after being “insanely depressed” under that roof she moved in with her father and pressed pause on high school. In May, things appeared to be getting better between Sami and the Paper Empire actress after they celebrated Mother’s Day together following a strained dynamic.
Two months later, Richards exclusively told Us Weekly that she’s “always in a good place” with her ex-husband despite their differences coparenting their girls.
While they reacted differently to Sami creating an OnlyFans account in June, the former Blue Mountain star noted they were back on the same team. “I think it’s great to be able to support one another and to not have judgment of what something may or may not be,” Richards told Us in July.
