Every year, the Golden Globes see a few nominations that leave people scratching their heads, wondering how on Earth something made the list.
This year in film, that something is Ron Howard’s Rush. Kudos to Chris Hemsworth for starring in two big films this year, but in all honesty, did anyone actually see Rush? While it was critically well-received, the film attracted very little attention and snuck through theaters pretty quickly, grossing a measly $90.2 million in the box office worldwide. Yet somehow, Rush gained a nomination for best motion picture drama and for best supporting actor (Daniel Bruhl) over films like Saving Mr. Banks.
There were quite a few snubs in television this year, particularly in the drama series department. Where’s Game of Thrones? Homeland? Heck, even Mad Men? Considering how much attention and critical acclaim these series get, it’s shocking that they didn’t get so much as a nod. But somehow, Downton Abbey made the cut, putting it on the same list as incredible series like Breaking Bad (the top contender) and House of Cards. While it is a good show, did it truly deserve this spot over these other series?
What movies and television shows do you think deserved the nod? What did make the cut but shouldn't have? Who do you think deserves to win? Sound off in the comment section below.
