The Big Bang Theory received a major nomination that was not previously announced when the TV Academy unveiled its nominees this morning, The Hollywood Reporter can exclusively report.

"Voting in the Emmy category of Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series resulted in seven nominees," the TV Academy tells THR in a statement. "One of the nominees, The Big Bang Theory's episode 'The Bow Tie Symmetry,' directed by Mark Cendrowski, was inadvertently left off various Television Academy communications platforms during today's nomination activities."

THR inquired about a missing nomination after it was brought to our attention that a new rule, implemented by the TV Academy after last year's Emmys, required that at least one of this category's nominees hail from a multi-camera show and at least one of this category's nominees hail from a single-camera show. The six nominees announced on Thursday morning all hailed from single-camera shows.
