Like most award shows, the Golden Globes have proven to be utterly ignorant since they’ve left out some of the greatest shows. We’re not saying the nominees don’t deserve it —we’re saying that there are still others who deserve to at least be acknowledged.
While it’s great that Masters of Sex has been recognized, considering it’s a relatively new show, and that Tatiana Maslany was finally acknowledged for her brilliant acting on Orphan Black, the Golden Globes have still disappointed since they failed to mention some brilliant shows and actors.
1. Mad Men
Also left out of the Screen Actors Guild Awards, it seems like this just isn’t Mad Men’s year. Not only did it not get nominated for Best Drama, but it also didn’t get a single acting award. Nothing for Jon Hamm or Kiernan Shipka? That doesn’t really seem to make sense to us, and we’re just a few steps away from boycotting the Globes.
2. Game of Thrones
Come on, Golden Globes. Seriously? How can Game of Thrones not be nominated? It could easily WIN Best Drama. But okay, let’s say others deserve that spot, but did you really leave out Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey? Seriously considering the boycott now.
3. The Walking Dead
The Golden Globes are tripping up. Season 4 was the best The Walking Dead has ever had, and you’re telling us they neglect to mention the show? What about Andrew Lincoln’s acting, then? No? You’re losing it, Globes. You’re losing it real bad real fast.
Hold up. Are you seriously telling us that there’s no nomination for Claire Danes or Damien Lewis, for what could only have been called the biggest show on all of TV in its first two seasons? We’ve scanned the list over and over again to see if we’ve missed it, but it’s true. Nothing for Homeland.
5. Nina Dobrev, The Vampire Diaries
Now, before you start bitchin’, let us explain that we know The Vampire Diaries not being nominated isn’t a big shocker. We get it, it’s a show about teenage vampires. But just listen: Like Tatiana Maslany, Nina Dobrev also plays many characters, three to be exact, and she does it beautifully. It’s like she takes on these personalities and everything changes, from her voice and accent to her walk. So, maybe The Globes should stop being so uppity and elitist, and consider some of the “non-serious” networks like The CW.
