It’s a beautiful Monday morning. The Golden Globe nominations were announced, and you know what that means, there are wagons full of people complaining about the snubs.
And since everyone loves focusing on the negative, we’re going to do the same. Below, you’ll find a short list featuring a few of the biggest snubs from the list of nominees in the film categories. If you’d like to check out the full list of nominations, you can click on this link.
This snub might be the biggest of them all. It was just assumed by almost everyone that Finding Dory would be nominated for Best Animated Feature Film. When the list was released, we were all checking it twice to make sure we were seeing things right. Not only was Finding Dory loved by the critics, but it was also the biggest domestic movie of the year. Both Zootopia and Moana got a nomination, as well as smaller films like Kubo and the Two Strings and My Life as a Zucchini.
It was all silent for Martin Scorsese’s Silence. He might be one of the greatest directors of all time, but the Golden Globes showed him no love. His film didn’t receive a single nomination. It’s pretty surprising, considering most people thought Andrew Garfield would clean up for his performance in the film. The good news for Garfield is that he was in another great movie this year, Hacksaw Ridge. He grabbed a Best Actor nomination for his work in Mel Gibson’s war drama.
Nocturnal Animals grabbed several Golden Globe nominations this year, and for good reason..it’s a legit thriller. Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the movie and his performance was great as usual, but apparently it wasn’t great enough. He did not get nominated for Best Actor, which is extra surprising because he was nominated the past few years for Nightcrawler and even Love and Other Drugs. But honestly, I think they got it right this year. Aaron Taylor-Johnson stole the show in Nocturnal Animals, and he was awarded with a Best Supporting Actor nomination.
