'Desperate Housewives' looks set to sweep this year's prestigious Emmy awards after receiving an incredible 15 nominations.
The hit US drama is up for a number of top honours, including Best Comedy Series.
But the nominations could cause further problems among the show's five leading ladies, as two of them have been completely snubbed.
Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman have all been nominated for Best Actress accolades, but co-stars Eva Longoria and Nicollette Sheridan have not been named in any category.
In recent months, reports have been rife of off-screen bitching including a huge bust-up during a photo-shoot for Vanity Fair magazine.
Cross, who plays neurotic mother Bree van der Kamp in the popular show, claims she was stunned after learning Sheridan and Longoria were omitted from the Emmys list.
Critically acclaimed comedy 'Arrested Development' will battle 'Will and Grace', 'Everybody Loves Raymond', 'Scrubs' and 'Desperate Housewives' for the Best Comedy accolade.
Winners are voted for by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and will be announced at a lavish ceremony in Los Angeles on September 18.
