Here’s What Lee Daniels Had To Say About Empire’s Emmy Snub


Lee DanielsSo it’s no longer news that Empire was conspicuously missing from the 2015 Primetime Emmy nominations list announced yesterday.

The show’s outspoken and sometimes controversial co-creator, Lee Daniels has however given us a piece of his mind about the situation. Daniels took to social media to address how his show was largely omitted from the list, coming in with just three nominations in all, which did not include best drama or a nod for Terrence Howard in the best lead actor category.

The star first congratulated Taraji P. Henson on her nomination, before then filming an Instagram video with one of the show’s cast, Jussie Smollet where he gave the Television Academy a piece of his mind.
