The 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards nominations were announced today. The highly anticipated list honoring the best in television and film left many fans disappointed. Though some of our quarantine tv and film favorites are being acknowledged in this year’s round up of Golden Globe nominations, there are quite a few projects missing that film lovers felt were deserving of an award this year.

Netflix’s royal drama series “The Crown” led with six nominations, followed by popular comedy series “Schitt’s Creek,” with five in the television categories. The streaming platform, that has not lifted a foot off of our necks, is dominating the nominations list with a host of shows and films. Beloved actor, Chadwick Boseman, received a posthumous nomination for his stellar performance in Netflix’s “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

Comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler return as hosts of the event for the fourth time. TV pioneer Norman Lear, who you may recognize from popular sitcoms All in the Family, Good Times and The Jeffersons, will receive the Carol Burnett Award for his lifetime of achievement. Actress and political activist Jane Fonda, from the heartfelt comedy Gracie and Frankie, will be presented the Cecil B. deMille Award for her outstanding contributions to the industry.

There are several great and well-deserved talents up for nominations this year like Don Cheadle in Hulu’s Black Mondaybeing up for Best Performance by an Actor in a television series and Lovecraft Country being nominated for best television series in the drama category. However, fans felt some of 2020’s best series and films were downright snubbed. Supporters of these missing films and series react on social media.

Fans were most upset by the Golden Globes total disregard for HBO’s acclaimed series I May Destroy You starring Michaela Coel.

Unfortunately, every year fans are left unsatisfied by award shows which somehow always leave out the culture’s most impactful content that is more often than not created by gifted Black talent. It is sad but unchanged. We are graciously awaiting the day that a new award show acknowledges the most impressive and impactful work in entertainment. Snubbed no more!

Nevertheless, the 2021 Golden Globes will take place on Sunday, Feb. 28 on NBC.
