2016 Golden Globe TV nominations: who got recognized & who got snubbed?


Note: I’m splitting up today’s Golden Globe nominations into two posts, one for the TV nominations and one for the film nominations. These are the TV nominations.

Unlike the SAGs, which recognized the same-old, same-old people with only a couple of new names, the Globes actually recognized a slew of new people and shows. Some surprise nominations: Lady Gaga, Maura Tierney, Silicon Valley, Casual, lots of love for Outlander (which surprised me because while the show is well-executed, it’s a MESS).

I know CB will be happy about the love for Liev Schreiber. I’m happy about Idris Elba, everything for Fargo (especially Kiki Dunst and Patrick Wilson), and mostly, I just love that the Globes recognized some new shows. While Game of Thrones got nominated for drama, it’s depressing to see that Peter Dinklage didn’t get nominated. No actor from GoT got nominated!! Which is insane.
