Five Biggest Golden Globe Snubs!

Let this be known as the day the Golden Globes went all Pia Zadora on us again.

Burlesque and The Tourist combined for six nominations, while at least one certain Oscar favorite got nothing.

Our picks for the most glaring Globe snubs:

1. True Grit: Zero, zilch, nada. For Jeff Bridges. For Matt Damon. For Joel and Ethan Coen. For everybody and everything expected to contend for Best Picture and other top prizes at the Academy Awards. In the Hollywood Foreign Press' defense, the Western redo is no Burlesque…

2. True Blood: Did the vampires get cast aside in the Drama Series TV category for Walking Dead's zombies? Looks that way. As if an overall lack of nominations wasn't insulting enough to the bloodsuckers…

The Office, House, Big Love and Entourage also failed to return to their respective series races, but those snubs were less surprising.

3. Leonardo DiCaprio
: He campaigned for both Inception and Shutter Island. He personally got nothing for either.

4. Julia Roberts: Wait a second… Doesn't the Hollywood Foreign Press collectively lose all sense where movie stars are concerned? Didn't its members nominate Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp for the biggest critical stinker either has ever made just because they're Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp? How did they not nominate Roberts for Eat Pray Love? What, did Cher steal too many of Roberts' votes, leaving them both out of contention?

While you're puzzling on those questions, here are a couple more: One, where was Hilary Swank's nomination for Conviction; and, two, since Gwynth Paltrow croons in Country Strong, isn't her (non-nominated) performance more in tune with the Comedy or Musical category than, say, Jolie's non-singing, non-slapstick turn in The Tourist?

5. How Do You Know: How do you know you're in trouble? When your $100 million, no-concept comedy-drama that's gonna have to rely on the kindness of reviews and awards shows to drum up interest comes away with no nominations.

Halle Berry, Angelina, Depp and Emma Stone? I'm guessing they need some BP to show up for the red carpet.

I'm really surprised Jeff Bridges wasn't nominated for True Grit. I know that he won last year but that seems like a snub to me.

I'm also disappointed that Danny Boyle wasn't nominated for 127 Hours for directing. It was an intense but great movie.

I like Emma Stone and Easy A but I'm not sure why she was nominated over worthier performances. As much as I love Johnny and Angelina, I'm surprised that The Tourist was nominated with all of the bad reviews. :rolleyes:

That Jennifer Love Hewitt nomination made me LOL IRL I'm sorry!

True Grit isn't in the theaters yet; maybe that's why even those who have seen it in screenings didn't nominate it??

After reading the reviews of Leo's Inception, I'm shocked he wasn't nominated. I think he's overdue for an Oscar, frankly.

I love Glee and Modern Family so I'm happy they received several noms.

I completely agree!

I'm sooo excited Katey Segal got nominated for Sons of Anarchy, which I think is one of the most amazing shows on tv right now...she is so good in that role

I'm cheering for The Big Bang Theory, Glee, 30 Rock and Modern Family.

Hmm. No Law & Order: SVU or How I Met Your Mother this year.

I like Alice in Wonderland and The Black Swan for movies. That'd be awesome if Mila Kunis got a Golden Globe, but I'd be happy for Helena Bonham Carter, too.

I'd love to see Leonardo DiCaprio win an Oscar someday, too. But hopefully he's somehow entered in the Oscars race.

I can say that for SO many of these!

These noms are so ridiculously all over the place. The Walking Dead but not Breaking Bad!?! They fit in Scott Caan....but over Michael Pitt?? Or Michael Shannon, for that matter. AND WHERE IS AARON PAUL??

And "Pillars Of The Earth"...... lord. I mean Ian McShane YAY... man can do no wrong, but that series!?!?! UGH. BURLESQUE!?????? Oiiyyy its goes on and on..

There are some great ones that I really appreciate too though. Idris Elba was great, Luther overall makes the police procedural feel much more alive than most shows on American tv. I like to see Amy Adams, she really is great. I really like Andrew Garfield in anything.... Yay for Jeremy Renner as well.

But... awards are pretty ridiculous overall... when can they ever claim consistency, or any kind of sense for that matter:lol:
There is no true measure of quality for these things. I'm sure most of the point of even having them is to get people talking, buzzing.... tuning in!

I'm shocked that they completely ignored Parks & Recreation and Community! Parks&Rec I can kind of understand, since it has barely been on in a year, but Community is consistently hilarious, heartwarming, and at the top of critics' top 10 lists, and it didn't get one single nod? Crazy.
Also, no Best Musical/Comedy nod for Toy Story 3? LAME.
