Golden Globe nominations snub and surprise

By Lauren Moraski/CBSnews.com 5:48 AM December 13, 2013

Cable networks continue to dominate and Netflix charts new territory

HOLLYWOOD- The Golden Globe Awards nominations were announced Thursday morning in Los Angeles, and as usual, there were a few snubs and surprises from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Variety‘s Ramin Setoodeh told CBS News he was surprised that Oprah Winfrey didn’t get a nod for her role in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” calling her the “most famous person of the awards season.” And movie buffs probably know that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association typically enjoys inviting some of the biggest stars to its annual gala. In fact, the critically-acclaimed Civil Rights story told through a long-serving White House butler, played by Forest Whitaker, didn’t receive any Golden Globe nominations on

 Tom Hanks’ “Saving Mr. Banks,” meanwhile, was missing from the best picture drama category as was “August: Osage County,” starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. As Setoodeh points out, not everyone was expecting Ron Howard’s racing drama “Rush” or the British drama “Philomena” to be a sure-thing in the best drama movie category.

Earlier this week, the SAG Awards may have overlooked “The Wolf of Wall Street,” but the Golden Globes recognized the Martin Scorsese film. Not only did it nab a best picture comedy or musical nomination, but the movie’s star Leonardo DiCaprio is up for an acting trophy. Although there’s been some talk about Jonah Hill’s performance in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” he didn’t get any Golden Globes-love on Thursday.

Similarly, “Fruitvale Station” received a lot of buzz this year, but the film, along with its stars Michael B. Jordan and Octavia Spencer, were absent from the Globe nominations.

On the other hand, actress Sally Hawkins didn’t receive much buzz leading up Thursday’s announcement, but ended up snagging a a best supporting actress in a motion picture nomination for “Blue Jasmine.”

The best actress in a movie comedy or musical category features a pair of surprise contenders, including Julie Delpy for her performance in the romance “Before Midnight.” The film is the third in the Richard Linklater series, which co-stars Ethan Hawke. Actress Greta Gerwig received a nomination for “Frances Ha,” a nod that not everyone necessarily saw coming. Gerwig also co-wrote the film with director Noah Baumbach.

There were some surprises in the TV categories, too. “Homeland,” which won best TV drama twice at the Globes, came up empty Thursday. Popular series “Game of Thrones” and “Mad Men” were also nowhere to be found despite having won honors in the past. With that, some newer shows broke through, including Showtime’s “Master of Sex,” which scored a best TV drama series nod, along with Netflix’s “House of Cards.” And although Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” didn’t get a TV nomination, the show’s star Taylor Schilling did receive one for best actress. Another newcomer, Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” nabbed a comedy nomination and a nod for Andy Samberg.

The Golden Globe Awards will be handed out in Jan. 12 on NBC. See the list of nominees here.
