Golden Globes: The Nominees Are In—And So Are The Snubs

See also

The nominees for the 71st Golden Globes ceremony are in, but so are the snubs. Topping the list of TV shows and movies surprisingly absent on this year's list is Showtime’s Homeland, which nabbed best drama series for two years in a row.

This year? Not one nomination. True, the hit drama has been under fire for swerving off course creatively this season, but its no fault of its actors—Claire Danes, Damian Lewis and Mandy Patinkin.

The other big shock: AMC’s Mad Men. The once-dominate drama felt the pain this year. Not even Jon Hamm was nominated. HBO's hugely popular Game of Thrones didn't fair well, either. Perhaps the biggest shocker: Anna Gunn of AMC’s Breaking Bad. No nom there, which is a head-turner considering the tremendous depth and nuance the actress brought to the groundbreaking AMC series in its last season.

Over in filmdom, one of the brightest surprises may be that Rush, the fiery racing flick directed by Ron Howard, grabbed a nomination ... and Lee Daniels' The Butler did not. And, neither did Oprah Winfrey, who collected much of the acclaim in that film.

The ceremony airs on Sunday, January 12 on NBC with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returning for hosting duties. Take a peek at the full list of nominees below:
