The Golden Globes nominations announcement on Thursday morning gave many reasons to celebrate — Mad Max: Fury Road! Amy Schumer for Trainwreck! Carol grabbing the most film nominations with five — but others weren’t as lucky.
So, who got left out in the cold? Read on for more of the snubs in the movies categories, plus a few other surprising developments.
- Johnny Depp’s “Whitey” Bulger couldn’t scare up a best actor nomination for Black Mass in the drama category. Other actors to miss: Michael Caine for Youth, Ian McKellen for Mr. Holmes, Michael B. Jordan for Creed, but not Will Smith. He grabbed a nomination for Concussion alongside favorites Leonardo DiCaprio, Eddie Redmayne, Michael Fassbender, and Bryan Cranston.
- After scoring a best ensemble nomination at the SAG Awards on Wednesday, it’s a big surprise that none of the stars of Spotlight earned acting nominations from the Globes. Spotlight contender Mark Ruffalo did get a nod, but for a completely different movie: Infinitely Polar Bear.
- Jacob Tremblay celebrated his SAG Awards nod with ice cream, but the child actor didn’t get a supporting actor nomination despite some good support from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for Room. Another supporting actor snub? Tom Hardy, for The Revenant.
- No love for Straight Outta Compton (which got a best cast nod at the SAG Awards), or for Sicario — Benicio del Toro, in particular, had been the subject of a lot of awards buzz for his role in the supporting category.
- Beasts of No Nation got a best cast nod at the SAG Awards, too, but missed the cut for the Globes’ Best Motion Picture – Drama category. (Star Idris Elba was cited in the supporting actor category.)
- Mark Rylance was nominated for Bridge of Spies, but costar Tom Hanks and director Steven Spielberg missed out.
- Quentin Tarantino, David. O Russell and Danny Boyle failed to score best directors nods for The Hateful Eight, Joy, and Steve Jobs, respectively. And, speaking of Hateful Eight, only one member of the film’s stacked ensemble cast got a nomination (Jennifer Jason Leigh).
- And, a few pleasant surprises: nominations for Sylvester Stallone (Creed), two nominations for Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina and The Danish Girl), and nods for best drama and director for Mad Max: Fury Road.
