If you love “House of Cards” or “Sully,” this is not your morning. The Golden Globes omitted them from this year’s nominations, which were announced before daybreak in Los Angeles on Monday. We tend to call such exclusions “snubs,” and here are a handful of them.
Like the Academy, the HFPA likes its biopics broad and inspiring. "Jackie," in which Natalie Portman plays the newly widowed Jacqueline Kennedy, is arty and alarming. Apparently being the year's most daring film isn't enough. It missed out on a Best Picture nomination and, even more surprisingly, acknowledgment for Mica Levi's note-perfect score. (At least Portman wasn't scorned.)
Anytime Martin Scorsese makes a movie, it will be tossed around as a potential awards contender. "Silence" is a tougher bargain, though: It's long, weird and, well, quiet. The Globes didn't give it a single nomination.
It was a double whammy for Taraji P. Henson, who was denied nominations for Fox's "Empire" and the civil-rights dramedy "Hidden Figures." The former was shut out altogether, while "Figures" netted nods for Octavia Spencer and the movie's score.
"Finding Dory" is the year's highest-grossing movie
, but the Hollywood Foreign Press Association didn't deem it worthy of a Best Animated Feature nomination.
Sally Field's stint as a dotty hoarder who falls for a younger co-worker made a decent box-office haul in March, but she won't be adding another Globe to her collection.
"Veep," "Insecure" and "Divorce" were recognized, but HBO's other signature comedy, "Silicon Valley," was not.
Sony Pictures Classics
Susan Sarandon made a lot of Hollywood enemies this year when she refused to support Hillary Clinton, but damn, is she good in "The Meddler."
The Golden Globes' comedy categories are made for movies like "Love & Friendship," smart jewels that won't quite hit the Oscars' radar. Why, then, did "Rules Don't Apply" star Lily Collins walk away with Kate Beckinsale's nomination?
A two-time nominee for Best Television Series — Musical or Comedy, "Orange Is the New Black" was completely shut out this year, despite enjoying the best season since the series' debut run.
The Globes honor "House of Cards" less and less every year, but Kevin Spacey did win Best Actor — Television Series (Drama) in 2015, and Robin Wright marked the show's sole nomination last year. Now? All that twangy political masterminding was kicked to the curb.
Tom Hanks seems like a solid bet for a Best Actor nod, but Viggo Mortensen's "Captain Fantastic" work nabbed Globes recognition over Hanks' performance as heroic pilot Sully Sullenberger. We're not complaining.
Tatiana Maslany won the Emmy in September, but her feat of multi-character acting on "Orphan Black" wasn't enough for the Globes.
Maybe the HFPA just doesn't care for "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt." The Globes have now omitted the Netflix comedy two years in a row, including Ellie Kemper and Tituss Burgess. Hashbrown no fun.
Viola Davis scored for her role in the movie "Fences," but her turn on the ABC soap "How to Get Away with Murder" failed to proffer a third consecutive nomination.
Lily Collins somehow managed a nomination for this messy biopic, but industry kingpin Warren Beatty lost out to ... Jonah Hill for "War Dogs"? Yeah, we don't know either.
Sony Pictures Classics
Margo Martindale was never a sure bet, but she's quite moving in "The Hollars." This won't do much to improve her second-tier stature in the Oscars' Best Supporting Actress race.
Lucas Hedges is forging a bright career for himself, so he'll have plenty more opportunities to collect awards. Still, the breakout newbie seemed like a sure thing this year.
Michael Shannon was a surprise nominee for last year's "99 Homes," but this time his co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson took his "Nocturnal Animals" nomination. It's odd.
The inaugural season of the buzz machine that is "Westworld" made off with three nods, including acknowledgements for Thandie Newton and Evan Rachel Wood. Its other actors weren't so lucky, which seems especially glaring for six-time Globe nominee Anthony Hopkins.
Lena Headey made off with the HBO epic's only acting shout-out, leaving recent Emmy nominees Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke and Maisie Williams waiting for winter to come.
For the second consecutive year, onetime favorite "Modern Family" was completely shut out.
