The Biggest Snubs of the 2018 Golden Globes Nominations

On Thursday morning, nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globes were announced from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. While this year’s awards season officially launched after Thanksgiving with the Gotham Awards and honors from the National Board of Review and the New York Film Critics’ Circle, nods for the Golden Globes — which will air live on NBC on Jan. 6, hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg — kick the conversation into higher gear when it comes to the sport of Oscar prognostication. On the movie side, nominations were led by Vice, Adam McKay’s scathing account of Dick Cheney’s rise to power, which scored six, while The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story led the TV side with four.

Sam Elliott

Man consider Elliott’s put-upon older brother of Bradley Cooper’s Jackson Maine in A Star Is Born to be a leading contender for Supporting Actor, so his absence here was a glaring one.

Cold War

Paweł Pawlikowski’s smoky romance set in 1950s Poland seemed like a lock for Foreign Language film. Perhaps it will
