She was supposedly snubbed for an Emmy nomination for her role in Amazon’s Homecoming.
But Julia Roberts was able to poke fun at her awards misfortune when she took to Instagram shortly after Tuesday’s announcements.
Sharing a screenshot of USA Today headline which declared she was spurned along with stars Emma Stone and George Clooney, she wrote: We’ll I’m in exceptional company at least.’
In good company: Julia Roberts said she was ‘in exceptional company’ after she was declared to have been ‘snubbed’ for an Emmy Award
Join the club! Also escaping nominations: fellow A-listers George Clooney and Emma Stone
Julia was snubbed for her part as caseworker Heidi Bergman in Amazon’s Homecoming, what was her first major TV role. This comes even after she was nominated for a Golden Globe for the part last year.
George was overlooked for his part in Catch-22, while Emma had a near miss with her role in the Netflix series Maniac.
There were plenty of big celebrity names and hit shows left off the long list of nominees chosen by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
Another big surprise was that Big Bang Theory with Kaley Cuoco and Jim Parsons, which was a massive hit that finally came to a close this year with a heartfelt finale, was ignored.
And TV staple Modern Family with Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen was left off the list too, as it was last year.
No love: Big Bang Theory, which saw its finale this year, did not receive an Emmy nomination on Tuesday

Black-ish has been up for best comedy series the past three years, but was overlooked this year. Its star Tracee Ellis Ross was off the list too. And The Conners with Sara Gilbert was passed over.
Sally Field was not included for their work on Maniac. Allison Janney got nothing for her sitcom Mom – she won in 2014 and again in 2015.
And Jim Carrey was not recognized for Kidding in the Best Comedy Actor category.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage did not get nods for Game Of Thrones, though Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington did. The show also landed a nod in the Outstanding Drama Series category.
Left out in the cold: Modern Family was also ignored in the comedy category; here are Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vergara, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Sarah Hyland, Jesse Tyler Fergussion, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould and Eric Stonestreet in May
Nothing coming up for this one: And The Conners with Sara Gilbert was passed over
Connie Britton was a hit as a woman whose boyfriend turns into a creep in Dirty John, but she was no named on Tuesday.

Ian McShane for Deadwood: The Movie was left off too.

Christine Baranski could have been recognized for The Good Fight but wasn’t. And Kate McKinnon was not nominated for Saturday Night Live nor was Kenan Thompson.
Richard Madden did not get a nod for Bodyguard though the show received a Best Drama nomination. Ricky Gervais’ After Life was also off the list.
The Detour as well as its stars Natalie Zea and Jason Jones should also have been nominated as the show is a critical and ratings dynamo.
Timothy Simons was not included for his work on Veep though Julia Louis-Dreyfus landed on the list again. And the show landed in the Outstanding Comedy Series box.
Gossip Girl vet Penn Badgley did not receive a nod for his work on You.
Both Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers are routinely excluded from the Emmys.

The Emmys will air live on Sunday, September 22, 2019 at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California, and will be broadcast in the US by Fox.
The nominations cover shows that aired from June 1, 2018 until May 31, 2019.
On April 9, 2019, it was announced that limited series American Horror Story: Apocalypse and the second season of The Sinner would not qualify for the Limited Series categories, and instead be moved to Drama.

Some of the famous Emmy snubs from 2018 were Harington and Clarke from Game Of Thrones.
The show returned to the drama series category with a nomination for its seventh season, neither Harington nor Clarke got received individual acting accolades.

Modern Family was left off.
