Golden Globe Nominations: The Biggest Snubs and Surprises

     December 6, 2018


The Golden Globes nominations were announced this morning, and as always, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had some surprises—and snubs—up its sleeve. While the Globes have a far lest prestigious reputation than, say, the Oscars, they’re still one of the most-watched awards ceremonies on the way to the Academy Awards, and so they can have a bit of a tangential impact. Those nominated for the Golden Globes can have their profiles raised in the eyes of those voting on such awards, and those who win a Globe have a chance to offer voters a preview of what their acceptance speech might be like—keep in mind, the Oscars are still in part a popularity contest.

So the Golden Globes snubs and surprises are noteworthy, if they don’t really matter all that much. Below, I’ve run down the most egregious offenders in this year’s crop of Film and TV contenders.
