The announcement of the 2016 Golden Globes nominations on Thursday brought a lot of excitement, but also surprise, shock, disappointment, and anger. While plenty of stars, movies, and television programs were nominated, many more were snubbed.

One of the most surprising omissions was Johnny Depp, who failed to get a nomination for Black Mass. Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks were also shut out for Bridge Of Spies. And while The Hateful Eight scored some love, it wasn’t nominated for Best Motion Picture – Drama, and Quentin Tarantino was left out of the directing category.

Meanwhile, Straight Outta Compton was one of the year’s biggest success stories and received a SAG Awards nomination on Wednesday. But there was no recognition from the Golden Globes. Creed was also largely rejected, aside from Sylvester Stallone’s Supporting Actor nod.

Though Jon Hamm was nominated for his final season of “Mad Men,” the show itself did not get a drama series nomination. “Parks & Recreation” also came up empty-handed for its final season. “The Walking Dead,” which always seems to be ignored by the Hollywood Press Association, was shut out once again.

Bizarrely, last year’s drama series winner “The Affair” didn’t even get a nomination. Similarly, 2015 winners drama acting winners Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”) and Ruth Wilson (“The Affair”) won’t even get to compete this time. And usual nominees Julianne Marguiles (“The Good Wife”) and Claire Danes (“Homeland”) are also nowhere to be found.

There was also no appreciation for Lena Dunham and “Girls,” “Inside Amy Schumer,” “Shameless,” Louis C.K. and “Louie,” or Edie Falco and “Nurse Jackie.” TELL US: Was your favorite from 2015 nominated for the 2016 Golden Globes or left out in the cold?
