“Sons of Anarchy,” one of the most anticipated season openers for 2013, was left in the dust when it comes to Golden Globe nominations this year. According to the Hollywood Reporter on Aug. 23, “Sons of Anarchy” didn't get one single nomination, they were snubbed. After Katie Sagal's nomination and win last year, it looked like the days of snubbing the SAMCRO family were over, but apparently that isn't the case.
Granted “SOA” is a bit graphic and sometimes realistic beyond expectations, but you'll find some of the best acting to ever come down the pike offered up by this show. This is especially the case when it comes to Katie Sagal, who is second to none on the little screen when it comes to making a role believable. After Sagal's win last year it looked like some of the much deserved recognition was finally coming “Sons of Anarchy's” way. Dropping them by the wayside this year just doesn't seem fair.
The cast and writers from “Sons and Anarchy” can take some solace knowing that they are in good company as “Mad Men,” which is one of the most talked about shows around the water coolers of the nation, walked away with only one nomination and that was for Jon Hamm as lead actor. They were snubbed in the best drama category, which many would agree they should have been a shoe-in.
Other shows not mentioned were some of the most watched shows, like “Game of Thrones,” “The Walking Dead” and The Good Wife.” The drama show category wasn't the only one with shockers. At least this year it appears there's an equal opportunity snubbing going around between cable shows and network TV shows.
The musical drama “Smash” landed a best comedy series nomination, but “Parks and Recreation” was snubbed. The Hollywood Reporter asks, shouldn't a show be funny intentionally to nab a nomination in the comedy category? One would think that should be the case!
