I grouped together some upsets, and tried to get the main ones. If there’s a different one, vote for Other and comment below.December 12, 2013 at 8:16 am #306849
I don’t know, but I’ll be really annoyed if Amy Poehler and Parks and Rec don’t finally win something. It has been the best comedy on TV for years.December 12, 2013 at 8:44 am #306850
there are so many but it’s easily the whirlwind that is that insane supporting actress categoryDecember 12, 2013 at 9:06 am #306851
^ That category is just utter bonkers. I don’t know how anybody could’ve predicted that lineup.December 12, 2013 at 9:37 am #306852
Supporting categories are always a clusterf*** so it wasn’t OMG for me.
I went with GoT, though Homeland is probably more logical due to last year’s wins, because Homeland’s buzz has gone down a lot and the backlash is harsh. GoT, though, has much buzz and critics are still loving it; Dinklage got back into the Sag lineup while at the TCA GoT won either Drama or Program – whichever one BB didn’t.
The Globes were waaay into Netflix and Showtime this year over HBO.
Drama 1-1-0. Actor 1-2-0. Actress 2-0-0. Sup 1-1-0.December 12, 2013 at 9:44 am #306853
Brooklyn 99??!? The nomination for Sandberg wasn’t a surprise. The one for comedy….yeah that was something else.December 12, 2013 at 10:00 am #306854
Homeland comletely snubbed! Not shocking if you watched the show and I guess they did! Disappointed in Caplan snub though.December 12, 2013 at 10:19 am #306855
Game of Thrones missing Drama Series = ridiculous.
Veep missing Comedy Series = awful.
Anna Gunn missing Supporting Actress = disappointing. I didn’t get a single person right in that category. They didn’t even go for Emilia Clarke!
I would’ve liked to see Lizzy Caplan in there for Best Actress. Also, the HFPA likely snubbed Homeland because of its reception and no longer being a “cool” show. I think the season is still better than some of the nominees for drama series. Reading the critics every week after episodes and they are still bitching about how wonderful season one was compared to seasons two and three….the funny thing is many of them didn’t pick up on the problems of season two as it was happening and are still trying to make it seem that they were on top of everywhere the show has gone wrong.December 12, 2013 at 10:23 am #306856
The worst snubs were definitely Caplan, Gunn and Danes. WTF with those! and wtf with vergara stealing a spot yet again!December 12, 2013 at 11:05 am #306857
Tough to pick, but I’m going with Ray Donovan’s nominationsDecember 12, 2013 at 11:33 am #306858
I thought VEEP would win for sure it was the funniest show all year and they love HBO now…. maybe GIRLS will win againDecember 12, 2013 at 1:22 pm #306859
I LOVED the Maslany nomination. I predicted her until the very end but it was more of a wishful thought than a rational prediction. I’m very to see my girl getting recognized. I’m absolutely shocked at the Homeland/Mad Men shut out, I guess they really did pay attention to quality decreasements in terms of tv shows.December 12, 2013 at 3:09 pm #306860
I went with others meaning their huge love for The White Queen by giving it three nominations.December 12, 2013 at 3:17 pm #306861
“I’m absolutely shocked at the Homeland/Mad Men shut out, I guess they really did pay attention to quality decreasements in terms of tv shows.”
Yet they still nominated Downton Abbey for Best Drama.
Mad Men still has the most Drama Series noms of any show that started in the last 10 years; HFPA have a relatively short attention span. As for Homeland, Breaking Bad is now tied with it for Drama Series noms with just 2, which helps show how buzz-following the org is.
