'Desperate Housewives' star Teri Hatcher has been snubbed by the Emmy Awards - with three of her castmates competing for the Best Comedy Actress Award without her.

Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria Parker have all been shortlisted for the prestigious prize at this year's TV awards - but Hatcher's name was noticeably missing from the semi-finalists.

Website GoldDerby.com reveals that the other actresses vying to take home the award include America Ferrera, Tina Fey, Christina Applegate, Mary-Louise Parker, Sarah Silverman, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Pushing Daisies star Anna Friel.

Also announced were the top ten stars who will compete in the Best Supporting Drama Actor category. Last year's winner 'Lost' star Terry O'Quinn was missing from the list, which was led by his castmates Naveen Andrews and Michael Emerson.

Other actors to be shortlisted include William Shatner, Ted Danson and TR Knight. Also competing in the category are Christian Clemenson, Bruce Dern, Zeljko Ivanek, John Slattery, Blair Underwood and Jake Weber.

The awards will be handed out on September 21.
