Shocking Golden Globes (TV) snubs: ‘Homeland,’ ‘The Crazy Ones,’ …

The Golden Globe nominations for TV shows and performers went mostly as we predicted. (Read the full recap here.)

However, as always, there were a few headscratchers which meant some of the strongest contenders were left out in the cold. 

Topping that list of omissions is reigning Drama Series champ “Homeland” as well as its two stars — two-time Drama Actress winner Claire Danes and last year’s Drama Actor Damian Lewis.

  1. Sadly, even the Globes don’t like FX. No The Americans, no Louie, no Justified. Also, Claire Danes and Lizzy Caplan belong on the list! Still, I like the HFPA keep nominating those overlooked by the Emmys like Monica Potter, Corey Stoll, Parks and Rec…
