Notice anything strange about the above list... Might be small to some, but to me the fact that every single main cast member and guest star (even the horrid acting of Charice) got something Glee and Fox deemed EMMY worthy this past season except for Harry Shum Jr. & Jenna Ushkovitz.
Do I think there is racism involved, no, not at all. But... the fact that Asian, and other Asian are the only two cast members not on the list is more shocking than surprising. Not surprising because neither character was given much to do all season long. It is shocking though that with such a huge cast the teachers pets (Kurt, Blaine, Santana, Brittany and even Lauren) get great scenes and story lines week after week while Tina and Mike get left with little or nothing to do. (Mike didn't even get a line last night that I could see). With such a large cast it is excusable that some get left out now and then but... If it continues into next season..it will be more than just an oversight....
