Courteney Cox, Lea Michele and Joel McHale woke up without the expected congratulatory Emmy nomination phone calls Thursday, as all three failed to score a nod this year.

Cougar Town's Cox, 47, has a long history of being ignored by the Academy. Admitting she was "hurt" to get snubbed in 2001 when her Friends costars Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow were both nominated, the actress says getting passed by makes her question her craft.

"I wish I could say I didn't care about stuff like [nominations]," Cox told TVLine.com in an interview released the week prior to the nomination announcement. "Maybe if I didn't, it would be some sort of karmic thing for me, but I actually do. I think it's nice to be recognized. [Not being so] makes me go, "Oh s–t maybe I don't know what the f–k I'm doing."

Cox's work on Cougar Town wasn't the only surprising omission at Thursday's announcement. Last year's Outstanding Lead Actress winner Kyra Sedgwick failed to get noticed for TNT's The Closer, as did Glee's Michele and McHale, from NBC critics' darling Community.
