- Award Snub: The show was completely overlooked at the 2016 Emmys. It wasn't entirely unforeseeable, given how the show aired practically a year before the deadline and was eligible in a year where the Movie and Limited Series were particularly competitive, but the omission of Oscar Isaac from the Best Actor line-up (following his win at the Golden Globes) was considered stunning by some.
- What The Hell, Casting Agency?: Catherine Keener, a walking example of Older Than They Look (56 at the time of shooting and not a wrinkle in her skin). Her smooth-skinned face is too distracting for an elder, silver-haired character, and the wig and big glasses "disguise" end up looking like something taken straight out of The Americans.
