‘Yellowstone’ was snubbed. ‘Inventing Anna’ was a surprise.

Amid the mostly business-as-usual announcement of the 2022 Emmy Awards nominees — get ready to be sick of hearing “Succession” and “Ted Lasso” called out on Sept. 12 — there were some slightly unexpected occurrences. Nothing was as shocking as last year’s nomination of “Emily in Paris” for outstanding comedy, but there were some noticeable omissions. As actors and actresses in “This Is Us” and “black-ish” discovered, it was not a good year to be a star of a beloved and long-running series in its final season.

Taylor Sheridan has built an impressive television empire with his nostalgia-and-testosterone-fueled vision, but he did not get the expected drama-series nomination for his flagship series on Paramount Network, TV’s highest-rated entertainment show in the 2021-22 season.

Julia Garner’s nomination for her portrayal of the serial fraudster Anna Delvey was expected, but the Netflix show itself was on the fringes of the discussion in the limited series category, despite its popularity. Left out was another, more highly regarded Netflix mini-series, “Maid,” along with two true-crime dramas, HBO Max’s “The Staircase” and Hulu’s “Under the Banner of Heaven.”

It would have been nice to see FX’s soulful and charming series about a group of Native American teenagers make the field for outstanding comedy, and it was thought to have a decent chance. But never underestimate Larry David, whose “Curb Your Enthusiasm” took what was probably the one spot that wasn’t preordained. Also absent was another prominent FX series, the two-time nominee “Atlanta.”

Jennifer Aniston was expected to grab a drama-lead-actress nomination for her role in the Apple TV+ series “The Morning Show,” but the nod went instead to her co-star Witherspoon. Also slightly unexpected in the category was the presence of both stars of BBC America’s “Killing Eve,” Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh, rather than just one.
