Golden Globes: 'House of Cards,' 'Silicon Valley' Snubbed in TV Categories
While the stars of ‘The Americans’ and ‘Mr. Robot’ scored nominations, the shows themselves were left out of the best drama series categories.
The Golden Globes ignored a number of high-profile and previously nominated TV series when it announced its nominations on Monday morning. Among the series failing to score any nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were: Silicon Valley, American Horror Story: Roanoke, Orange is the New Black, Girls, House of Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, The Good Wife (for its final season), Empire (star Taraji P. Henson won best actress in a drama series last year) and Casual (which earned a nomination last year).
New series Queen Sugar, The Good Place and Crisis in Six Scenes were also left out. While Crisis received bad reviews, the HFPA has indicated it’s fond of Woody Allen, who wrote, directed and starred in the six-episode show for Amazon.
Better Call Saul, which failed to break through in its first season, didn’t fare much better with its second, with star Bob Odenkirk landing the show’s sole nomination again.
Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany was also left out, just months after winning an Emmy for her role in the series. And while This Is Us was nominated for best drama series and stars Mandy Moore and Chrissy Metz both landed nominations, Milo Ventimiglia was left out despite his prominent role in the show as was fellow male star Sterling K. Brown, who did land a nomination for his role in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
Westworld scored three nominations but none for star Anthony Hopkins.
And while The Americans stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys were nominated, the show itself was left out of the best drama series category. Similarly, both Rami Malek and Christian Slater scored nominations for Mr. Robot but the show was left out of the best drama series category.
