After months of anticipation, the Golden Globes nominations have finally been announced, with The Banshees of Inisherin leading the way with eight nods. The list of contenders features several snubs and surprises that raised some eyebrows—starting with these five.
Snub: Tom Cruise – Top Gun: Maverick
If there was ever an actor who deserved a Golden Globe nod for a role in an action blockbuster, it’s definitely Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick, but the HFPA voters don’t seem to agree.
Wednesday’s viral dance won over everyone from Netflix subscribers and TikTok users to the HFPA voters, who surprisingly gave this teen fantasy show two nominations.
Acclaimed thriller Yellowjackets entered this year’s Emmys with seven nods, and we expected it to receive the same kind of love at the Golden Globe, but it ended up getting zero nominations.
Surprise: Hilary Swank – Alaska Daily
If you haven’t seen Hilary Swank in Alaska Daily, you’re not alone, but that didn’t stop her from scoring a nod for the best actress in a television series-drama over the stars of Killing Eve, Yellowjackets, and The Morning Show.
Snub: Women Talking
We’ve expected at least once woman would receive the best director nomination at the Golden Globe, and Sarah Polley was the main contender. Her film Women Talking eventually only received nominations for best screenplay and original score.
