On the TV side, the SAG Awards has a spotty track record when it comes to recognizing new shows. Last year, the group embraced “Stranger Things” (and did so again). This year, it also bestowed plenty of love to “Glow” and “Ozark,” two of the buzziest shows from Netflix. But in doing so, it snubbed critically acclaimed new offerings like Amazon’s “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” as well as Showtime’s “Smilf” — both of which picked up multiple Golden Globe nominations.

Surprise The Big Sick makes a rebound
After getting shut out completely from the Golden Globe Award nominations Monday, the feel-good comedy made a swift rebound, netting two nominations for
Of course, everyone is going to have their favorites, and with several critics groups already announcing their lists/awards, there is always something that has to be left out, but a lot of people have to be surprised by some of the nominations, especially since Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World recently had to change stars, and kicked out indie darling Greta Gerwig from a spot in the Director noms.
Take a look at the full list and let us know what you think.
Best Motion Picture – Drama
Although 2017 has been called the year of the woman, the Globes managed to overlook two of the biggest female-led hits of the year: “Beauty and the Beast,” the most successful movie of 2017 so far, was snubbed in the musical/comedy category, and “Wonder Woman” was shut out for any awards. Other surprises: Jordan Peele didn’t get a nomination for writing or directing “Get Out,” although his movie did receive two nominations (for best picture and actor).
Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” a love story between a lonely woman and a monster, led all movies with seven nominations.
On Monday morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association revealed its nominees for the 75th annual awards show. While shows like The Crown, Game of Thrones, This Is Us, Will & Grace and Big Little Lies were recognized, as well as worthy performances from Sterling K. Brown, Elisabeth Moss and first-time nominee Freddie Highmore (for The Good Doctor), there were several head-scratching omissions and pleasant surprises. You certainly can't say the Globes are boring.

13 Reasons Why Breaks Through
After getting skipped over at the Emmys, 13 Reasons Why broke through with a Best Actress in a Drama Series nomination for star Katherine Langford. This may be the biggest surprise coming out of nomination morning, as the 21-year-old Australian star will go up against stellar competition in Globes heavyweights Caitriona Balfe, Claire Foy, [link
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,

Several others across film and TV were also rewarded for their work with their first-ever Golden Globes nominations.
Out of both actress categories, there was one sole new nominee: Margot Robbie landed her first nod in the musical or comedy field for her heralded turn as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya.” She’s up against previous winners Judi Dench (“Victoria & Abdul”), Helen Mirren (“The Leisure Seeker”) and Emma Stone (“Battle of the Sexes”) and previous nominee Saoirse Ronan (“Lady Bird.”) The actress in a drama category is all previous Globe winners: Jessica Chastain (“Molly’s Game”), Sally Hawkins (“The Shape of Water”), [link

In this age of #PeakTV, there simply aren’t enough slots for all the talent on the small screen. So while we applaud those who did receive nominations this year, we’d also like to tip our collective hat to the shows and stars that didn’t make the cut… but still deserve critical recognition.
Among the most egregious snubs this year were Will & Grace‘s Debra Messing (both the show and Messing’s co-star
“Three Billboards,” a revenge drama, “The Post,” a dramatic re-telling of the Pentagon Papers saga, and “The Shape of Water,” an offbeat story about the romance between a mute cleaning lady and a fish-like creature, earned best film and director nods, in addition to picking up nominations for the performances of several of its actors. “The Shape of Water” nabbed a leading seven nominations, while “Three Billboards” and “The Post” picked up six apiece. The other best drama nominees were Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk” and Luca Guadagnino’s lyrical romance “Call Me by Your Name.”
Unlike other awards shows, the Globes separates its film honors into best drama and best
Following its big win at the 2017 Primetime Emmys, Big Little Lies leads the TV categories with six nominations. FX's Feud: Bette and Joan earned the second most, with four nominations. On the film side, The Shape of Water earned seven nominations, while Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and The Post tied with six nominations each.
The nominations included a number of snubs and surprises in both the film and TV categories, but among the standouts were Meryl Streep, who her record 29th Golden Globe nomination, and Christopher Plummer, who was nominated for All the Money in the World, after replacing Kevin Spacey in the film.
The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Seth Meyers, will be handed out live on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018 starting at 8 p.m. Et on NBC.
Read the complete list of nominees below:
Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” and Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” led noms on the movie front. On the TV side, HBO’s “Big Little Lies” picked up six nominations, while FX’s “Feud: Bette and Joan” followed with four. Meanwhile, “Fargo,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and “This Is Us” all landed three nods.
Presenters Alfre Woodard, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Bell, and Sharon Stone were joined by Golden Globe ambassador Simone Garcia Johnson, Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Meher Tatna, and Dick Clark Productions executive vice president of television Barry Adelman in revealing the nominees.
Seth Meyers will emcee the 2018 ceremony from the same location on Jan. 7. The Golden Globes will air live at 5 p.m. Pt/8 p.
FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan followed with four nods, while Fargo, The Handmaid’s Tale and This Is Us netted three each. On the TV comedy front, a half-dozen shows picked up two nominations each, resulting in no frontrunner.
By outlet, HBO dominated with 12 total nominations, followed by Netflix’s nine and FX’s eight. NBC and Showtime each tallied five.
The “Big Little Lies” nomination haul comes just days after HBO confirmed that a second season of the show is now in the works. Behind it is FX’s “Feud: Bette & Joan,” which has four nods; then Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” NBC’s “This Is Us,” and FX’s “Fargo,” with three apiece. Beyond that, the Hollywood Foreign Press spread the nomination love around, with many of TV’s most acclaimed shows receiving just one or two nominations. It’s the end result of the Peak TV era: With such a robust and eclectic offering of scripted TV shows from multiple outlets, HFPA voters opted to honor as many shows as possible.
