Although the fan favorite television show was nominated for thirteen Emmy Awards, “Sherlock” unfortunately walked away empty handed from this year’s show. Fans took to social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook to express their frustration at the show’s defeat. As one of the most highly regarded shows by fans and critics alike, it is frustrating to most that “Sherlock” was not recognized for its amazing acting, writing and directing.

It is not a small feat to be nominated thirteen times for any group of awards. Even though “Sherlock” did not receive any awards this year, fans will continue to follow Stephen Moffat and Mark Gatiss to see where next year’s series will take them. Actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman have an exciting year ahead of them. Cumberbatch will be seen in “Star Trek Into Darkness” and Freeman will portray Bilbo Baggins in the upcoming “Hobbit” trilogy.
