Mindy Kaling isn’t sweating her Emmys snub.
On Tuesday, the TV creator’s teen comedy “Never Have I Ever” failed to receive any nominations for the 2020 Emmys.
Responding to the lack of awards attention, Kaling responded to a Twitter user, suggesting the show might “always seem ethnic” to certain people.
Thanks! We love our #neverhaveiever cast, are so proud of the reviews and the 40+ million people who watched and loved it worldwide. Sometimes a show like ours will always seem ethnic or niche to a certain group of people. ❤️@loulielang https://t.co/trMd4zeFbb

The show stars Canadian Maitreyi Ramakrishnan as Devi, an Indian-American teenager dealing with love and loss in high school, all with Kaling’s signature sense of humour.
Despite no nods for “Never Have I Ever”, Netflix managed to pull in an incredible 160 nominations across all categories for shows like “The Crown”, “Ozark”, “Stranger Things” and “Dead to Me”.
