Golden Globes Nominations Snubs 2017
The nominees for the 2017 Golden Globes were announced Monday, but there were a few surprising snubs. See below which stars, movies and television shows failed to score nominations.
Martin Scorsese’s Silence and Clint Eastwood’s Sully are two awards hopefuls that were entirely left off the list. Neither film was nominated in the drama category, nor were the film’s respective lead actors Liam Neeson and Tom Hanks. Also failing to score Best Picture nominations were the sci-fi film Arrival and Denzel Washington’s Fences, two of the best-reviewed films of the year. Meanwhile, Matthew McConaughey came up short with Gold, and Seth Rogen’s critically-acclaimed Sausage Party won’t get to vie for Best Animated Film.
Meanwhile, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who won a Critic’s Choice award Sunday night for his role as Negan on “The Walking Dead,” won’t have the same luck at the Globes. “Game of Thrones” favorite Kit Harington is missing from the list of TV actors as well. As for the shows, “Orange is the New Black,” Silicon Valley” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” are among the hit comedies that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association apparently didn’t find all that funny. And “Mr. Robot,” which won Best Drama series at last year’s ceremony, wasn’t recognized for season two.
Additionally, “Empire” was completely shut out of the running, failing to earn a nomination for leads Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard, or for Best Drama series. Also missing among TV dramas were Netflix’s “House of Cards” and “Black Mirror.” The 74th Golden Globes air live January 8 on NBC.
