Outside of an unjust cancellation, almost nothing in the world whips TV fans into a frenzy quite like the Emmy nominations – and when the nods come rolling in, so do the exclamation-point-filled social media freak-outs.

This year’s announcement was no exception. After the pleasant surprises (Tatiana Maslany! Will Forte! Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt!) and cruel snubs (No Good Wife love?! Kerry Washington tossed out of the lead actress race?! Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez ignored?!) came the uncontrollable emotional outbursts.

Forget the stages of grief: The stages of Emmy nomination reactions are much more intense.//
