Somewhere in D.C., ex-President Selina Meyer is dropping f-bombs.
For the first year since its premiere, Veep got entirely shut out of Golden Globe nominations during Monday’s announcement of the 2018 honorees. It was a shocking snub considering star Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home her sixth consecutive Emmy for the role in September, and as her character’s political career plummets, the scripts soar. In fact, the HBO comedy has never won a Globe.
Here are more snubs and surprises from the list.
SURPRISE: Katherine Langford, 13 Reasons Why
Whatever you may think of the Netflix series’ young audience and mature content (suicide, sexual assault, etc.), there’s no denying the Aussie newcomer anchored the drama as teen Hannah Baker, alternately captivating and consumed by trauma.
SNUB: The kids of Stranger Things
Season 2 of Netflix’s sci-fi, coming-of-age story wasn’t as huge a hit among critics. Still, only David Harbour scored a nod as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association ignored the earnestly entertaining kid squad of Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp, Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin and Sadie Sink.
SNUB: Game of Thrones
Sure, it picked up its requisite nomination for best TV series, but none of the HBO fantasy’s actors were individually recognized. Punishment for the pushed-back final season? We know nothing.
SNUB: Milo Ventimiglia
This Is Us, Sterling K. Brown and Chrissy Metz are nominated, but everyone’s favorite TV dad will have to cheer on his “children” from the sidelines.
SURPRISE: Eric McCormack, Will & Grace
During its original, eight-season run, NBC’s pioneering sitcom got plenty of nominations, but it’s still a welcome surprise to see McCormack praised for his work in the reboot.
The 75th Golden Globes Awards will air live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel’s Grand Ballroom on Jan. 7 on NBC.
