The nominations for the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards have been announced – and there’s no shortage of British talent on the shortlists.
As ever there are a fair share of surprise inclusions and notable omissions, with the awards set to take place on 5th January 2020.
In the best drama series category there’s no place for Game of Thrones, whose final season was famously seen as a disappointment by many fans and critics.
Surprisingly there is room for Apple TV+’s flagship series The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, which has had mixed reviews since it debuted last month.
There are no such surprises when it comes to the other four series nominated in this category – with Big Little Lies, The Crown, Killing Eve and Succession all included in the shortlist.
In the comedy and musical category, there is British representation in the shape of the widely praised second series of Fleabag, which finds itself pitted against Barry, The Kominsky Method, The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel and The Politician.
There’s slightly better luck for Game of Thrones in the acting categories, with Kit Harington flying the flag for the fantasy series, up against fellow British actors Brian Cox (Succession) and Tobias Menzies (The Crown). Rami Malek (Mr Robot) and Billy Porter (Pose) round out the category.
And there’s also British representation in the drama actress category – with both Olivia Colman (The Crown) and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) up for the award. Their competition comes in the shape of Aniston and Witherspoon, as well as Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies).
Phoebe Waller-Bridge is up for the prize in the comedy and musical acting categories, hoping to win gold ahead of Christina Applegate (Dead To Me), Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel), Kirsten Dunst (On Becoming a God in Central Florida) and Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll).
The TV movie or miniseries category includes Catch-22, Chernobyl, Fosse/Verdon, The Loudest Voice and Unbelievable.
There was more British and Irish representation in the acting categories for limited series, as well as for the supporting awards, with those nominated including Sacha Baron Cohen (The Spy), Helen Mirren (Catherine the Great), Andrew Scott (Fleabag), Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown) and Emily Watson (Chernobyl).
Meanwhile Netflix drama When They See Us, written and directed by Ava Du Vernay, has been snubbed completely – with some taking to social media to voice their anger at the omission. Other shows not to score any nominations include Watchmen and Euphoria.
So one of the best shows of this year, When They See Us got completely snubbed at the Golden Globes, another reason why i hate award shows.

.@goldenglobes are y’all ok?? The HFPA just wholly snubbed ‘When They See Us’ — not even giving its Emmy-winning actor a nomination. I am confusion.

How has When They See Us been snubbed so hard by the Golden Globes? Every single person I’ve seen talk about it was blown away by that series. Make it make sense, pleaseeeee?! pic.twitter.com/tfjKeZaucs
