2018 Golden Globe Snubs And Surprises That We Will Never, Ever Get Over
The 2018 Golden Globes snubbed some big names.
2018 Golden Globes Snubs
It's finally everyone's favorite season!
Okay, after Pumpkin Spiced Latte Season and then Free Presents season, it's finally everyone's third favorite season! Award Season.
I find that there are two types of people in this wretched world: those who don't care about award shows and those who will literally die on the hill they stand on in order for their favorite to win.
I don't want to be dramatic, but I am prepping my own WILL over the 2018 Golden Globe snubs this year. I will never recover from this.
Actual footage of me reading the 2018 Golden Globes Complete Nominations List:
2018 Golden Globe Surprises
Who were the biggest surprises on the 2018 Golden Globe nominee list?
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association graced us with their nominees for the 75th annual Golden Globes on Wednesday, and there were a few newcomers to make the list -- however, there were plenty of stars, shows, creators, and movies that were obviously ABSENT from the list.
No woman was nominated as Best Director at the Golden Globes this year.
While the Oscars draw a lot of flack for being #sowhite and #somale, the Golden Globes have... in a way... done a better job at representation. In 75 years, five women have been nominated. Which, still isn't great odds.
However, the Hollywood Foreign Press failed to nominated some incredibly talented (and successful) female directors this year, such as Kathryn Bigelow for Detroit, Dee Rees for Mudbound, Patty Jenkins for Wonder Woman, and Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird.
In fact, Gerwig got a nomination for her screenplay and Lady Bird was nominated for Best Musical or Comedy, but not Best Director? That sounds fake, but okay.
The Big Sick
It literally makes me sick that The Big Sick got no Golden Globe love.
The Big Sick was a Sundance darling, and the Golden Globes totally ignored it.
You would think the flick would at least be up for Best Musical or Comedy, or even Best Screenplay -- but NOTHING. In fact, Kumail Nanjiani, who stars and cowrote the movie with his wife Emily V. Gordon, didn't even get Best Actor.
Instead it went to Steve Carell in Battle of the Sexes. REALLY, Hollywood Foreign Press... REALLY?
Girls Trip was not nominated for Best Musical or Comedy.
Yet it broke several box office records this year and introduced mainstream media to Tiffany Haddish.
Get Out's writer and director, Jordan Peele, not receiving a nomination is a travesty.
So, first up, Get Out is nominated... for "Best Comedy/Musical," and I didn't see any singing in this movie so... Hollywood Foreign Press, tell me what's funny?
On top of that, Jordan Peele wasn't nominated for this stellar script and incredible directorial debut.
Insecure was not nominated for Best Television Series - Comedy.
Surprisingly, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and SMILF, two relatively new shows, were both shown a lot of love this year at the Golden Globes.
Issa Rae was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, but Insecure getting beat out by Will and Grace seems like a disgrace. (See what I did there? Nailed it.)
In conclusion, I do not trust the Golden Globes, and I've got a LOT of questions for the Hollywood Foreign Press.
