It's no secret that the Paramount Network's Yellowstone has developed a major fan following over the past three seasons. Taylor Sheridan's modern Western starring Kevin Costner has incredible acting, writing and casting that make it one of the most popular TV shows currently on the air. But at the Emmy Awards this past weekend, the show wasn't nominated for a single Emmy. Naturally, Yellowstone fans are incredibly frustrated by this travesty.
It was no surprise that comedy series Schitt's Creek raked in literally everything it was nominated for, but where were the nominations for Kelly Reilly as Lead Actress for her incredible job playing Beth Dutton or Costner's nomination for Lead Actor? Heck, Yellowstone also deserved a nomination for Outstanding Drama Series. Some of the big call-outs on social media were frustration over a lack of recognition for all of Reilly's great work as well as Cole Hauser for Best Supporting Actor as Rip Wheeler. Since the third season didn't get any love at this year's Emmy's, we're hoping that Hollywood gets its act together next year!
Here are all of the Emmy nominees this year that beat out Yellowstone:

Here's some of the outrage from fans on Twitter:
Not watching #Emmy tonight because they totally ignored the best show on tv right now. #KellyReilly and @colehauser totally deserved a nomination at least, and so many others. Super disappointed. @TelevisionAcad @Yellowstone

I enjoyed the Emmy’s broadcast and many of the shows that were nominated and won but it feels like there should be an asterisk because where the heck is @Yellowstone?? Best show, best writing, best directing, best actors. What the heck, man?
