Australian actress Rebel Wilson has taken to Twitter to express her disappointment at missing out on an Emmy nomination, insisting that the situation "sucks".

The 28-year-old Pitch Perfect star took to social networking to express her anger at missing out on a nod at this year's award ceremony, due to NBC cancelling her new comedy show Super Fun Night after just one season.

She wrote: "Oh man, I realize my show Super Fun Night was cancelled, but it sucks that they didn't even put me in the race for the Emmys...not that I thought I would have a chance of winning but there wasn't many females heading network comedies and I might've had a slight chance at the 6th nomination slot... Oh well, will have to just try for Oscar or Tony.''

She added: ''I just feel like I've been banned from buying a raffle ticket for a raffle I had a super fat chance of winning anyways.''

This year's Emmy Awards will be held on August 25 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
