All the biggest Golden Globes snubs of the year — from ‘Atlanta’ to ‘This Is Us’
The nominations for the 2019 Golden Globes were announced Thursday morning.
Many were shocked to see Emmy-winning shows like “Atlanta” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” left off the list.
Fan-favorite films like “First Man” and “Eighth Grade” were also missing from the nominations list.
The 2019 Golden Globe Awards nominations were announced Thursday morning. Although the list includes some much-deserved names, there were also some critically-praised series, films, and actors missing.
The 76th annual awards show will air from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 6 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PST on NBC. It will be hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg.

The award-winning FX series “Atlanta” was missing from the list.
Many were shocked that Donald Glover’s comedy was left off the Golden Globes list, especially since it took home best TV series for a musical or comedy at last year’s award show. The critically-acclaimed series also won outstanding comedy series at the 2018 Emmys, making its absence an even bigger shock.
The saving grace is that Glover was nominated for best performance by an actor in a television series – musical or comedy.
Netflix’s “GLOW” was also left out of the best comedy or musical TV category.
Starring Alison Brie, the Netflix series about female wrestlers has received a lot of critical praise and even earned a 2018 Emmy nomination. Many were expecting to see it make the 2019 Golden Globes nomination list.
Viola Davis, at the least, should have been nominated for “Widows.”
We can understand the action thriller not receiving a best picture nod, but at least recognize one of the stand-out performances of the year from Davis.
