Why the Emmys Should Recognize More Superhero Shows

With the the success of HBO's Watchmen at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, it seems apparent that superhero shows Can win awards.

For the longest time, the Academy has refused to recognize shows of the superhero genre, no matter how outstanding and critically relevant they are.

Yes, from time to time, a superhero show will receive an award for its stunts, costumes, or special effects, but rarely do we see an acting, writing, or directing award nomination for any of these shows, even when there are people deserving of the accolades.

Every year, the Emmys announce their nominations and the average person says "huh?"
