ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the possible Emmy Awards snub to the HBO series "The Wire". Dubbed by critics as the "best show on television- ever" people behind it thinks they don't get the honor they supposed to have especially in Emmy Awards where they were nominated once and lost. David Simon added that because most of the actors are black it became the reason for the snub. As the show wraps up HBO said they are still hopeful that The Wire gets attention and Emmy voters will recognize.
