Zach Braff blasted Emmys 2020 for excluding Nick Cordero and his “Scrubs” co-star, Sam Lloyd, from the In Memoriam segment Sunday night.

“For those wondering: The Emmys chose to leave Nick Cordero out of the memorial montage. I had no idea one had to campaign to get their loved one in. We did. They passed,” Braff, 45, tweeted Monday morning.

Braff tweeted out the official statement from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences that explained their reasoning for leaving the Broadway star, who appeared on TV, out of the tribute.

“Those involved in the In Memoriam selection process are very aware of the sad passing of Mr. Cordero due to coronavirus and we assure that his name has been given every consideration for inclusion,” the statement read. “With so many people passing in any given year, we simply cannot ensure any particular individual is included, nor do we release the names included prior to the telecast.”

Cordero died in July at age 41.

The “Garden State” star ended his messages with a note about Lloyd, who played Ted on the hit hospital comedy series, being left out.

“I should mention too, that they also left out Sam Lloyd,” Braff tweeted. “I would have never even considered ‘campaigning’ for Sam because he had more TV credits than most actors I know.”

Lloyd, who is Christopher Lloyd’s nephew, died earlier this year from a brain tumor. He was 56.
