No nominations for '45 Years,' and only one nomination for 'Brooklyn.'

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) revealed the nominations for the 2016 Golden Globes on Thursday morning.

The morning's noteworthy snubs include Johnny Depp and Black Mass, which was shut out across the board; Charlotte Rampling and 45 Years; and Benicio Del Toro and Sicario. None of the Spotlight actors were nominated in the supporting categories, despite the film earning three noms (best drama, best director, best screenplay). And Room director Lenny Abrahamson failed to earn a best director nomination even though his film was one of five best drama nominees.

Depp's Black Mass snub came as a big surprise following his 2011 The Tourist best actor in a comedy or musical nomination. The actor and co-star Angelina Jolie both earned leading actor noms for the film, which received poor reviews and was joked about on stage by host Ricky Gervais at the 2011 Golden Globes.

"It seems like everything this year was three dimensional — except the characters in The Tourist,” Gervais said. "I tell you what, I'm jumping on the bandwagon, because I haven't even seen The Tourist. Who has?" He continued: "But it must be good because it's nominated, so shut up, OK? And I'd like to crush this ridiculous rumor that the only reason The Tourist was nominated was so that the foreign press could hang out with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. That was not the only reason; they also accepted bribes."
