The last time Julia Louis-Dreyfus won a Golden Globe was on her very first bid, back in 1994 for “Seinfeld.” She’s lost three consecutie times for “Veep,” with another possible nomination coming her way next month. Why does she keep losing at the Globes?November 29, 2015 at 11:09 pm #365941
Does she need one?November 29, 2015 at 11:30 pm #365942
I think it has to do with the fact that HFPA likes to award newcomers aka Lena Dunham and Gina Rodriguez and then super overdue people aka Amy Poehler.
She has a shot this year for sure, but she needs to watch out for Ellie Kemper.November 29, 2015 at 11:32 pm #365943
Better performances than hers.
Lena DunhamNovember 30, 2015 at 12:15 am #365946
Better performances than hers.
Try telling that to the Emmys!
Stop it. Julia could do the electric slide and win an award there. They’ve just been name checking her. (She deserved to win for season 3 only) Thank the heavens that the Globes see the light.November 30, 2015 at 3:03 am #365947
The Globes also aren’t big fans of “Veep” historically, so that plays a factor with JLD too.November 30, 2015 at 3:31 am #365948
I think Julia deserves every award she gets do I thik there are other people worthy of awards attention, yes but their not as worthy as her, and I think she should win the globeNovember 30, 2015 at 6:28 am #365949
Is it because she wins all the Emmys?
It would kind of feel like a repeat win, even though she hasn’t won here for Veep. This is the second biggest televised TV Awards ceremony arguably, so having her win so often now at the Emmys, there would almost be a bit of boredom from viewers and the audience if she wins here too for Veep.
She doesn’t need the win to boost her profile, or that of her show. They are much more keen on fresher programmes and faces, and give those shows a boost (Homeland, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Transparent, The Affair).
She isn’t hugely overdue for a Globe, because she has won here before. Spacey won last year when it was noted that he had not won any Globes before. Generally the Globes don’t give a s**t about narratives, so the long time without a win narrative would not factor in. She has won before, and for them that may be good enough.

^Very well said.
Four years ago today Veep was a fresh show, too. But its freshness was overshadowed by a much cooler and fresher HBO show Girls and its breakout star that year. And as we all know; with Globes, if you don’t hit the jackpot in your first try it’s very hard to do that in the future.
Exception: Modern Family being awarded in its 3rd try.
After ignoring MF for two consecutive times while all the award bodies showering it to death; HFPA couldn’t resist the buzz no more and felt that they had to give it to them.
It’s probably much harder for a niche show like Veep to gain that kind of momentum, tho. It’ll probably end up like another Everybody Loves Raymond situation and will finish its run with 2 Emmy series win and zero Globes.November 30, 2015 at 7:24 am #365952
Not any confusion: I said “Very well said” to AMG, lol. He/she summarized the situation perfectly.November 30, 2015 at 12:56 pm #365953
Maybe because Veep sucks?November 30, 2015 at 2:12 pm #365954
I dom’t know what’s worse: people believing Gina Rodrguez gives a better performance than JLD’s or people believing the HFPA actually picks what they think is best lol
But don’t forget that JLD is already a winner and she was probably years before your favesNovember 30, 2015 at 3:09 pm #365955
She was never the “new star” like Dunham and Rodriguez. Or overdue like Poehler.
There isnt anyone overdue this year in that category, and there really isnt a hot new show, expect for Ellie Kemper who could beat her
