In the past, seeing Glee nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Awards would have been a sure thing. The show has been nominated in the category of “Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series” for the past three years. But this year, the Fox musical comedy was noticeably absent from the list.
This year’s Comedy Ensemble noms went to 30 Rock, Arrested Development (them??!), The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family and Veep. Last year, Glee was up in the category against Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, 30 Rock, The Office, and Nurse Jackie. In the end, Modern Family took home the win.
Do you think Glee was snubbed, or do you think the SAGs made the right choice? After all, the show just isn’t the hit it once was, and ratings this season have been consistently low. Plus, Chris Colfer’s storyline is no longer breaking new ground. Kurt’s coming out, his struggle against bullying, and his journey towards acceptance has all come and gone. As of now, he’s living in New York bully-free and happily engaged to his longtime boyfriend. It’s a happy storyline, but it’s not the sort of plot that’s going to get you any award nominations.
Oh well. We guess there’s always next year.
