Fans of the Paramount drama series "Yellowstone" were outraged as their favorite program was once again snubbed by the Emmys.


The Paramount drama series "Yellowstone" may be a hit with the critics and with audiences, but it wasn't nominated for a single category for this year's Emmy Awards.

The series, featuring a star-studded cast that includes Academy Award winner Kevin Costner, Wes Bently, and Kelly Reilly, among others, was snubbed by the prestigious Television Academy, and fans are outraged.

"Yellowstone continues to dominate the ratings in its category, and season 3 debuted on June 21, 2020, with a record-breaking 6.5 million viewers

"Yellowstone," now in its third season, has consistently dominated the ratings and was considered the best-scripted series for the third year running.

Nevertheless, as in previous years, "Yellowstone" has been ignored by the Television Academy in every category it should rightly be contesting -- and fans are making their opinions felt, flooding social media with protests.



Fans have bitterly protested, some calling out the Emmys organization for failing to recognize the universally acknowledged excellence of the series in the areas of writing, acting, and overall excellence. @KeezPro wrote on Twitter:

"I’m surprised that #Yellowstone hasn’t been nominated in its three years; great writing, great acting #EmmySnub #EmmyFail #Emmy #EmmyNominations"


Other fans angrily expressed the opinion that the show had been ripped off, with nominations for Outstanding Drama Series going to less deserving shows like "Better Call Saul," "The Handmaid's Tale," and "The Mandalorian," among others. @debbieliv wrote:

"I can’t believe @Yellowstone wasn’t nominated for an Emmy award. The show got ripped off."



So even though "Yellowstone continues to dominate the ratings in its category, and season 3 debuted on June 21, 2020, with a record-breaking 6.5 million viewers, it continues to be ignored -- and not just by the Emmys.

"Yellowstone" has yet to garner a nomination from any of the major award shows, and can only boast two for the Hollywood Post Alliance Awards.

The shows that ousted "Yellowstone" for the 2020 Emmys for Best Drama Series are: “Better Call Saul,” “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Killing Eve,” “The Mandalorian,” “Ozark,” “Stranger Things,” and “Succession.” Let's hope 2021 will bring some changes and see "Yellowstone's" overall excellence recognized.
