While the teams behind many movies and TV shows were celebrating their Golden Globe nominations early Monday morning, other high-profile, acclaimed films and programs were left off of this year’s list of nominees.
Despite receiving recognition from other groups in recent weeks, The Big Sick and Wonder Woman were completely shut out, with Kumail Nanjiani and real-life wife Emily V. Gordon’s script not even getting a nomination for the former. Similarly, neither director Patty Jenkins nor star Gal Gadot were nominated for the latter. Just last Thursday both films were included on AFI’s list of the 10 best films of 2017. Fellow well-received superhero film Logan also failed to receive any nominations.
Other films left out entirely were Beauty and the Beast, Despicable Me 3, Wind River (originally released by The Weinstein Co.), Detroit and sleeper box-office hit Wonder. Darkest Hour, Downsizing and The Florida Project were also left out, apart from nominations for Gary Oldman, Hong Chau and Willem Dafoe, respectively.
While Call Me by Your Name and Get Out received multiple nominations, both films were left out of the best directing and screenplay categories for Luca Guadagnino and James Ivory (Call Me by Your Name) and Jordan Peele (Get Out).
The best director category is an all-boys club, with best director Oscar hopefuls Greta Gerwig and Dee Rees not nominated, though their films — Lady Bird and Mudbound, respectively — earned nominations in other categories.
Other noteworthy individual snubs include Tiffany Haddish, who received recognition from multiple groups for her work in Girls Trip but was left out of the Globes nominations; Jake Gyllenhaal for his work in Stronger; and Jennifer Lawrence for her role in the divisive mother!
Kate Winslet and Annette Bening also missed out on best actress nominations for their work in Wonder Wheel and Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, respectively.
Elsewhere, best original song Oscar hopeful “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” by Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik from Fifty Shades Darker, was left out of the best original song category. Another surprising song omission was Diane Warren’s “Stand Up for Something” from Marshall, performed by Andra Day and Common.
On the TV side, several acclaimed shows were completely left out of this year’s nominations, including Veep, Orange Is the New Black, The Americans, Silicon Valley, Transparent, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Mindhunter, American Horror Story: Cult, The Good Fight, The Good Place and Girls, the latter for its final season.
While ABC’s Black-ish received two nominations, Tracee Ellis Ross, who won the best actress in a comedy series Golden Globe last year, wasn’t even nominated this year.
Also, while James Franco was nominated for his role in The Disaster Artist, he didn’t get a TV nomination for his work on HBO’s The Deuce. Robin Wright was also noticeably absent from the best actress in a drama series category.
On the other hand, Better Things, Twin Peaks and Ozark were only nominated in the acting categories.
