Golden Globes 2015: ‘True Detective,’ ‘The Good Wife,’ ‘Fargo,’ among nominations

This is turning out to be quite the week for awards season, isn’t it? We’ve spent a great deal of time as of late discussing the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and just how terrible they are for the most part in giving new shows a chance.

Then, we have the Golden Globes. While no series is ever going to be perfect when it comes to giving out nominations, we at least have so much more admiration and respect for the Hollywood Foreign Press than either the SAG Awards or the Emmys. After all, they routinely celebrate a wide array of programming, and not just big names or familiar faces.

We’re going to have a specific article on surprises and snubs later, but for now, let’s just get to sharing the full nominees.
