The Golden Globe Nominations Are Out. Here are the Nominees and the Snubs

The nominees for this year’s Golden Globe Awards were announced yesterday, and the Guillermo Del Toro movie “The Shape of Water” led the way with seven nominations.   The HBO series “Big Little Lies” and the movie “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” got the second-most nominations, with six each.


As for the ‘snubs,’ “The Big Sick” and “Wonder Woman” were noticeably shut out.  A bunch of acclaimed TV shows were also ignored, including “Veep”“Orange Is the New Black”“The Americans”“Silicon Valley”“Transparent”“Curb Your Enthusiasm”“Mindhunter”, and “American Horror Story: Cult”.


One SURPRISE was Christopher Plummer getting a Best Supporting Actor nomination for replacing Kevin Spacey in “All the Money in the World”.  He just re-shot Kevin’s scenes three weeks ago.


“The 75th Annual Golden Globes” will air live on Sunday, January 7th on NBC.  Seth Meyers is hosting.
