Golden Globes 2017: Is Emilia Clarke, Kate McKinnon, or Sarah Paulson biggest Supporting Actress snub?
Tomorrow, the Golden Globes are officially taking place on NBC, but before we officially get around to that airing, we do come bearing one final edition of our snubs series discussing some of the people who should have been on the list. Tonight, it’s the Supporting Actress field.
If you follow the Globes closely, then you know already one of the reasons why none of these people are on the list, and it’s really not for anything that they can control. The Hollywood Foreign Press basically only gives five spots for thousands of actresses, and there are going to be people rather unfairly left in the dust as a result of that. It’s terrible, but it is regrettably what it is.
In addition to sharing our five snub picks (which are based more on industry expectations rather than personal preference on our part), we want you to share who you think was the most egregious snub in the poll below! Come tomorrow morning, we’ll be posting the results for everything across the board.
Supporting Actress – The snubs
Uzo Aduba, “Orange is the New Black” (Netflix) – While the popularity of her show has waned with many voters, she remains a hot commodity with her just recently getting a SAG Awards nomination.
Emilia Clarke, “Game of Thrones” (HBO) – An Emmy nominee over the summer, and a powerful performer who gives Daenerys a presence like no other. Her popularity, coupled with that of the show, always makes her a potential nominee.
Kate McKinnon, “Saturday Night Live” (NBC) – A recent Emmy winner, and if that wasn’t enough, also iconic for her portrayal of Hillary Clinton alongside Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump. She does many other things, but we thought this would give her the nod.
Sarah Paulson, “American Horror Story: Roanoke” (FX) – Anytime Paulson’s not nominated for something, it’s a surprise — she’s a favorite of the awards, and for good reason.
Constance Zimmer, “UnREAL” (Lifetime) – Another recent Emmy nominee, and one known for bringing passion, humor, and at times heartbreak to a cynical show about reality TV. The polarizing second season may have hurt her, given that the Emmys were looking at season 1.
Now, we turn this over to you! Vote as prefaced above, and head over here to see our take on the remainder of the nominees / snubs from the year. (Photo: Golden Globes.)
