The Twin Peaks fandom is angry. The Emmy nominations for 2018 are out – and somehow the awards body seems to have entirely forgotten about the return after 25 years of the genre-bending mystery horror drama.
Well, not entirely. Creators David Lynch and Mark Frost are up for Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special (catchy), Lynch is also in the running for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special and there are nominations for make-up, single-camera picture editing, hair styling and sound editing.
- Game of Thrones and Westworld lead Emmy nominations – but Netflix outstrips HBO for the first time
- People will be trying to work out the ending of Twin Peaks: The Return for years

But there are no nominations inr the major limited series categories or for star Kyle McLachlan, and fans are pretty mad about that…

I’m so frustrated with this year’s Emmy nominations. HOW is #TwinPeaks not nominated for Best Limited Series? It literally changed the medium of television as we know it. And HOW is @Kyle_MacLachlan not nominated for his excellent and layered performance? ????

Shutting out “Twin Peaks” is a pretty definitive statement by the Emmys, and that statement seems to be “We don’t particularly care for television”

To hell with the #Emmys. Congratulations to @Kyle_MacLachlan and @LauraDern for being smart, intuitive, brilliant performers and kind, warm, open-hearted people who have had successful careers for over 30 years. The love of #TwinPeaks fans for you transcends any award. pic.twitter.com/lyLFw4CUId

I am, of course, despondent that "Twin Peaks" was shut out of the major limited series categories. #Emmys

Bit late to the party but the fact that Twin Peaks was snubbed in the Emmys is a complete injustice. Episode 8 alone was worth a nomination.
