The Emmys are facing backlash after failing to nominate Sadie Sink for her recent performance as Max in Stranger Things 4.

Ever since Stranger Things 4 came out on Netflix, viewers haven't been able to stop talking about how brilliant Sadie Sink is. This season, Sadie's character Max becomes a target for new supervillain Vecna and, over the course of the nine episodes, Sadie acts incredibly. Her scene in 'Dear Billy' was so good that it even sent Kate Bush back to the top of the charts.

The acclaim Sadie's received led many fans to believe that she might get a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series at this year's Emmys. However, the nominations were announced yesterday and Sadie was snubbed.

The nominees are: Patricia Arquette as Harmony in Severance, Julia Garner as Ruth in Ozark, HoYeon Jung as Kang Sae-byeok in Squid Game, Christina Riccia as Misty in Yellowjackets, Rhea Sheehorn as Kim in Better Caul Saul, J. Smith Cameron and Sarah Snook as Gerri and Shiv in Succession and Sydney Sweeney as Cassie in Euphoria.

Reacting to the snub, one fan tweeted: "You’re going to sit here and tell me with a straight face that sadie sink didn’t deserve an emmy after her performance in st4 when this exists???? she was ROBBED."


Fans also argued that Caleb McLaughlin, Millie Bobby Brown and Gaten Matarazzo also deserved nominations for their amazing performances in Stranger Things 4.

No Stranger Things actors were nominated for acting Emmys this year. However, the show is up for Best Drama Series and an array of creative awards. Meanwhile, both David Harbour and Millie Bobby Brown have received acting nominations for the show in the past but neither of them won in their respective categories.

Still, I think we can ALL agree that Sadie and the rest of the cast were robbed.

Who do you think the Emmys snubbed this year?
