The Emmy nominations list was announced Thursday, and though some sci-fi series made the cut, several fan favorites were left out. One of the most glaring omissions? Fox's Fringe, which is gearing up for its final season. Luckily, Fringe guest star and sci-fi legend Leonard Nimoy is not taking this snub lightly.

Nimoy, who has guest-starred on several episodes of Fringe as Willam Bell, took to Twitter soon after the nominations were announced to lament the selections, calling the move "ridiculous."

Check out Nimoy's take on it below.

No Emmy nomination for Fringe. Ridiculous.So much talent. So much hard work. So much imagination. LLAP

After a bit more thought, he added it wasn't much of a surprise—considering that his other famed series, Star Trek, has also been famously snubbed time and time again:

Shouldn't be so surprised about Fringe. Emmy has given short shrift to Star Trek for 46 years. Amazing. LLAP

What do you think? Are they nuts for leaving off Fringe?
