Golden Globes 2017: Was William H. Macy, Will Forte, or Thomas Middleditch biggest Comedy Actor snub?
The Golden Globes are going to be announced on Sunday, January 8, and we have a feeling that there are going to be many worthy shows announced for nominations. However, at the same time there are going to be a few others who should’ve been at the show in the first place. Snubs are just a part of what it means to be on in the Peak TV era, and we can think of a few snubs that didn’t even make the list of the biggest snubs within the Actor in a Comedy Series category.
In you look below, you can see our picks for who was unfortunately the most left out this year — be sure to vote for your favorite below, and we’re going to be announcing the winners for this particular poll on Sunday, January 8, the morning before we get around to the Globes actually airing on NBC. As a reminder, we are considering these snubs the biggest just in terms of pre-show expectations and buzz rather than personal favorites.
Don Cheadle, “House of Lies” (Showtime) – This was the final season of the show, and given that and his past history of nominations, we have to believe that this snub happened for the most part due mostly to heavy competition. Otherwise, he would’ve been there.
Will Forte, “The Last Man on Earth” (Fox) – A great performance in a show that is quirky, fun, and also has a lot of meaning in the right moments. Maybe the Globes didn’t want to nominate more than one network TV actor and Anthony Anderson already had taken the show?
Bill Hader, “Documentary Now!” (IFC) – It’s not a particularly well-known show, but Hader is beloved and the Globes nominating Nick Nolte for “Graves” shows that they got no problem going outside the box.
William H. Macy, “Shameless” (Showtime) – He’s a perennial favorite, and given that there were two seasons this year, you would have thought in theory that this would have upped his chances even further.
Thomas Middleditch, “Silicon Valley” (HBO) – For whatever reason, we imagine that when this show goes off the air, the sentiment will still be that Middleditch does not get some of the respect that he deserves.
