Golden Globes TV snubs: ‘The Office,’ Katey Sagal, Jim Parsons

While the Emmys are usually set in their ways, the Golden Globes have made a habit of selecting what’s new and trendy when choosing their TV nominees and winners. This year is no exception with the inclusion of new programs like “Homeland,” “Boss,” “Enlightened,” and “New Girl.” (See full list of nominations here.)

But the Globes’ affection for what’s new often results in much turnover year-to-year and several unexpected omissions. None of this year’s Emmy-winners for comedy made the cut: Melissa McCarthy (“Mike & Molly”), Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell (“Modern Family“), and Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory“) were all left out. Parsons’s snub is especially surprising considering that he won Best Comedy Actor last year; this year, the Globes opted for his co-star Johnny Galecki instead.

Also snubbed: “The Office,” which failed to receive even a farewell nomination for star Steve Carell; “Dexter“; “Justified“; “Page Eight” and its star Rachel Weisz; and last year’s Golden Globe winners Katey Sagal (“Sons of Anarchy“), Chris Colfer (“Glee“), and Jane Lynch (“Glee”);
