Golden Globes biggest TV snubs and surprises 2020

The 2020 Golden Globes nominations are out.

And as usual, there are several notable snubs, along with very unexpected surprises.

HBO’s Emmy titan Game of Thrones was snubbed for best drama series for its divisive final season,  and star Peter Dinklage was left out of the supporting actor category. Both GoT and Dinklage won Emmy for these respective categories at the Emmys a few months back.

FX’s acclaimed Pose also was absent from best drama despite oddsmaker predictions.

Emmy favorite Julia Louis-Dreyfus wasn’t nominated for the acclaimed final season of HBO’s Veep

Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t get goop for her performance in Netflix’s Ryan Murphy dramedy The Politician

Mahershala Ali was left in the cold for his critically praised performance as a detective losing his memory in the third season of HBO’s True Detective.

Laura Dern was snubbed for her performance in HBO’s Big Little Lies (though her co-star Meryl Streep got in). 

In the best actor in a drama category, Jeremy Strong for HBO’s Succession and Kevin Bacon for Showtime’s City on a Hill were both unexpectedly omitted. 

Netflix’s limited series about the Central Park Five, When They See Us, was a favorite to get into the movie/ limited series category, yet was left out. Same goes for the Breaking Bad movie El Camino.

The full list of snubs is to come in the next few minutes as nominations are announced, refresh page for latest.

On the surprise side of the equation: Kit Harington broke into a competitive best actor category to give GoT its one nomination. 

Got strong thoughts? Just remember the Hollywood Foreign Press Association literally consists of only 87 voting critics, so this isn’t exactly a perfectly definitive process.

The 77th annual Golden Globe Awards airs Sunday, January 5 on NBC at 8 p.m. ET.

Ricky Gervais is returning as host for the fifth and, as he joked, “very last time.”

Here’s the full list of nominations.
