There were years in the past when we wouldn’t even bother to list out the biggest snubs in the Limited Series / TV Movie category of the Golden Globes, mostly because there weren’t enough relevant ones out there that were deserving. That’s not the case this year, as we easily could’ve listed seven or eight in 2016 that didn’t get a nomination, and at the very least had a case for one.
As we’ve done for much of the past week, we’ve listed out our take on the five biggest snubs below based on industry buzz and past voting history from the Hollywood Foreign Press. What we’d like from you is to vote for your take on the biggest snub below, and we’ll be back come January 8 to deliver all of the results to you!
“All the Way” (HBO) – The movie’s received accolades in terms of Bryan Cranston’s performance as Lyndon Johnson, but not as much for the film on its own.
“American Horror Story: Roanoke” (FX) – Given that the far inferior “Hotel” season was nominated last season, you’d expect this season, with its brilliant marketing campaign and so many scares, also would be. Alas, that wasn’t the case.
“Confirmation” (HBO) – This movie finds itself in the same boat as “All the Way,” except with Kerry Washington receiving the bulk of the praise.
“Roots” (History) – This one is inexplicable given the magnitude of the miniseries, and the love that many other awards shows had for it throughout the year. From that vantage point, it’s arguably the most egregious snub on the list.
“Sherlock: The Abominable Bride” (PBS) – Typically, the Hollywood Foreign Press love their British fare; therefore, it made sense for them to love this. “Sherlock” is likely victim to it coming on at the start of 2016, and was forgotten along the way.
Now, let’s leave this to you! You can also write in the comments below why you think some of these Limited Series / Movies were snubbed over the actual nominees.
