Yellowstone is one of the most popular shows on TV right now. In fact, you could argue it’s THE most popular show.

According to Deadline, Yellowstone‘s Season 4 finale in January drew in 9.3 million viewers. With simulcast and Paramount Network encores factored in, the season finale generated over 11 million viewers.

After drawing in massive viewership numbers throughout Season 4, Yellowstone was named the #1 series of 2021 across broadcast, cable, and premium.

Despite its immense popularity, Yellowstone has never won an Emmy Award. Though after Season 4’s success, fans were certain the show and its stars would receive some recognition this year.

But to everyone’s shock, the show was once again snubbed by the Emmys. Nominations were announced on Tuesday (July 12), and Yellowstone didn’t receive a single nod.

People were particularly upset on behalf of Kelly Reilly, who plays Beth Dutton:

Kelly Reilly REALLY deserved an Emmy nomination this year for EATING up everyone on Yellowstone and I truly think it’s the biggest snub of the year,wrote Twitter user Aaron Rian.

Another Twitter user named KD said, “The fact that Kelly Reilly hasn’t been nominated for a Emmy for her performance as Beth in Yellowstone is absolutely mind blowing.”

That’s just tragic that Yellowstone was not nominated for any Emmy awards!tweeted @shely.

Monique Kostelac shared a reaction on Twitter too, saying, “Having a look at the Emmy nominations and like… Where’s Yellowstone? Has nobody seen Kelly Reilly in that? Or Kevin Costner?


While Yellowstone did not receive any Emmy nominations, its prequel series 1883 did. The show received two nominations for Outstanding Cinematography for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie and one nomination for Outstanding Music Composition for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.

1883 did not receive a nomination in any of the major categories. Fans were shocked to learn its stars Isabel May, Sam Elliott, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and LaMonica Garrett also did not receive any nominations for their performances.
