There are snubs, and then there are snubs. When the list of Emmy nominees was revealed this morning, there was one glaring oversight. While his co-stars Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, and Scott Bakula received nods for their roles in HBO’s Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra,” Rob Lowe was hung out to dry.
My theory that the reason why @RobLowe wasn't nominated for an Emmy is because the ugly old bitter male voters are jealous of his good looks

Well, that’s definitely possible. The man is dreamy. But really, there’s no good reason for Emmy giving him the cold shoulder. Lowe’s son Matthew knows it:

And so does his brother, actor Chad Lowe:
Hey #Emmy, his name is Rob Lowe…for future reference.

Hopefully the Emmy bigwigs are paying attention. Because a whole lot of viewers think Lowe was totally robbed:
If Rob Lowe didn't terrify us with those eyes in Behind the Candelabra to get the Emmy nomination, then WHAT WAS IT ALL ABOUT?

Why is no one talking about Rob Lowe's clear Emmy snub for Behind The Candelabra!?!?
— Rae Votta (@raevotta) July 18, 2013
Great Emmy Nominations but Rob Lowe was, um, robbed.

Wait, no Emmy nod for Rob Lowe?! He was the best thing about Candelabra! Bakula was good too, but c'mon.

No Rob Lowe Emmy nod for BTC? Ridiculous.

Speaking of Emmy snubs, where was the love for @RobLowe in Behind the Candelabra? I thought he was lock for the WIN, let alone nomination.

@RobLowe Your performance was worthy of an Emmy nod as well.
— Ms. Cakes (@patycake15) July 18, 2013
Rob Lowe should have been nominated for an Emmy for his outstanding performance in #BehindtheCandelabra. He already won in my book.
— Maria Shriver (@mariashriver) July 18, 2013
In her book, and in our hearts. And the fact that he’s gracious in defeat makes him even more swoonworthy:
— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) July 18, 2013
Perfection. You know what? He’s too good for the Emmys!
