What’s the worst snub in Emmys history?

Michael K. Williams for The Wire

There’s a very good chance that the late Michael K. Williams will posthumously win the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama on September 19. He imbued his Lovecraft Country character, Montrose Freeman, with great complexity, and the TV Academy is familiar with his work, having nominated Williams on four previous occasions—for Bessie, Boardwalk Empire, The Night Of, and When They See Us. But somehow, his most prominent role, that of Omar Little on The Wire, escaped the notice of Emmy voters. Given that The Wire was itself only nominated for two Emmys during its entire run, I guess it’s not all that surprising. But as Omar Little, Williams gave us one of the greatest TV characters of all time—opaque at times, but for the most part, thrillingly transparent about what he wanted out of life and how he planned to get it. The Wire’s lack of Emmy wins is considered one of the greatest snubs of all time, but I’d put the oversight of Williams’ work a notch above. [Danette Chavez]
