Fans Are Freaking Out Over These Golden Globes ‘Snubs’
It is officially awards season. Nominations for the 77th Golden Globe Awards kicked things off with nominations announced Dec. 9. A few notable movies and actors led the way, but others didn’t receive a single nom. Here’s who fans say got the old “snub.”
Here are the most prominent nominees for the 77th annual ‘Golden Globe Awards’
Come January 2020, the Golden Globe nominees will walk away winners, or they won’t. Among the leaders on this season’s list, Marriage Story, The Irishman, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood garnered a lot of hits.
Tim Allen, Dakota Fanning, and Susan Kelechi Watson joined the Hollywood Foreign Press to announce the full list
Standouts, such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt each received nods for their roles, as did Joaquin Phoenix for his transformation into the Todd Phillips spin on Joker.
The Crown, Chernobyl, and Unbelievable racked up nominations for TV, a did The Morning Show and Big Little Lies. However, a few projects and actresses were noticeably absent, despite a successful year, and fans aren’t happy about it.
These celebrities were not nominated
Year after year, the start of awards seasons often hints at wat’s to come in subsequent awards shows, such as the Oscars. The honorees are chosen from the best film of the year in 14 categories and the best TV in 11 categories.
With the full list circulating, it’s easy to see the places “shoe-ins” should’ve been, but have been excluded. Among those is Ava Duvernay’s compelling take on the Central Park Five, When They See Us, Euphoria’s Zendaya, Jordan Peele’s Us — including the star of the film who played two characters, Lupita Nyong’o.
But wait, there’s more.
Also missing from the list is Adam Sandler for his work on Uncut Gems, Matt Damon for Ford vs. Ferrari, Sandra Oh for Killing Eve, and all female directors such as Greta Gerwig for Little Women.
Here’s how fans feel bout the ‘snubs’
Leave it to fans to take to social media to express their frustration. #Lupita is a trending topic on Twitter with thousands of people talking about her missing nomination.
“She didn’t get a nomination? the snubbery is unreal,” one fan said.
Another suggested racial injustice, pointing out deserving actors who weren’t nominated.
“No Jharrel Jerome who won an Emmy, No Lupita who already is an Oscar frontrunner that is sweeping awards this season, No Zendaya who is in multiples lists of the best performances of the year, No Regina King who got universal acclaim in Watchmen. Judge for yourselves #GoldenGlobes”
Young adult author, Tiffany Jackson, seconded that sentiment.
“No Lupita? No Jharrel Jerome? No ZENDAYA?!!! No When They See Us? No Farewell? This might be the whitest I’ve seen the #goldenglobes in years.”
Another fan came up with a solution to the “snubs.”
“florence lupita emilia lena zendaya i’m going to give y’all those awards i’m literally gonna steaI those awards and give them to you”
Regardless of who walks away with a win, five-time host, Ricky Gervais, will at least bring the funny.
