Another year, another Emmy snub for Courteney Cox.

Buzz had been building that the Cougar Town actress, 47, might earn her first Emmy nomination this year. But she was left off the list of nominees Thursday – one of several notable omissions.

Other actors who didn’t feel the love from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences this year: Kyra Sedgwick of The Closer, the Emmy winner in 2010; Sean Bean of Game of Thrones; Joel McHale of Community; and Lea Michele of Glee.

Tell us: Which of these actors deserved a nomination the most? (Or leave your own choice in the comments below.)
