Advertisements Dinklage got supporting actor because that's what he was submitted for, so that's not really a snub. Ensemble shows like that pretty much everyone is considered "supporting". Noble not getting nominated has been a crime every year and continues to be so. The one I find odd is American Horror Story in the "movie or mini series" category. It got a 12 episode season, just like most cable shows, and was renewed for a second season, so it's not really a miniseries. I can see why the network submitted it there (probably didn't want to go up against the Breaking Bad / Mad Men juggernauts), and I guess they could justify it as the season was a self contained story, but... still seems odd. I wonder what the actual rules are for mini series versus series.
