The Golden Globes Nominations Didn't Make The Oscar Race Any Clearer
The Golden Globes nominations were announced Thursday morning, and while some of the TV picks were surprising, the film nods only muddied the race.
The Golden Globes nominations were announced Thursday morning, and moral of the story here is that if someone was snubbed at Wednesday's SAG Awards nominations, they were honored for the Globes.
On the TV side, the Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy nominees are "Casual," "Mozart," "Orange Is the New Black," "Silicon Valley," "Transparent" and "Veep." Not on that list was newbie "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" — which received a Screen Actors Guild nomination in the equivalent category on Wednesday.

And it's largely a battle of vets in the Best Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy category. Two-time Globe winner and six-time nominee Jamie Lee Curtis will face off against Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has yet to win despite receiving three nominations in the category for "Veep."

Gina Rodriguez, Lily Tomlin and Rachel Bloom were also nominated. This will be Bloom's first nomination for an individual performance and her first Globe nomination. (Video via The CW)
In film, let's just say none of the nominations were a lock. After all, this awards season has been one for the books.
And speaking of "Joy" and "The Martian," both Matt Damon and Jennifer Lawrence received nods in their respective lead actor categories. They were both snubbed in the SAG Awards nominations.

Best Actor, Drama nominees went to Bryan Cranston, Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Fassbender, Eddie Redmayne and Will Smith.
Best Actress, Drama honored Brie Larson, Saoirse Ronan, Alicia Vikander, Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett — who will be competing against one another for the same film.
Ricky Gervais will return to host the Golden Globes on Jan. 10, 2016, on NBC.
