Golden Globes 2019: The Biggest Snubs and Surprises


Shed a tear for “This Is Us.” The NBC drama was shut out of the 2019 Golden Globe nominations.
This morning’s announcement brought plenty of snubs and surprises in both the movie and television categories.
“This Is Us” missed out on a nomination as Best TV drama, and stars Sterling K. Brown, Mandy Moore, and Chrissy Metz did not receive a third nomination in a row. Brown’s snub is especially shocking since he won the trophy last year, becoming the first black man to do so.
The TV drama category in general experienced a major shake-up, with past nominees “The Handmaid’s Tale” (last year’s winner) and “Westworld” also ignored in favor of new entries “Homecoming,” “Bodyguard,” and “Pose.”
