Golden Globes Golden Globe Awards nominations snubs TV entertainment news 13579086While 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 "Girls," "The Newsroom" and "Nashville" (Read full report on nominations here and see full list of nominees here.)

But the Globes' affection for what's new often results in much turnover year-to-year and several unexpected omissions. The biggest shock is the exclusion of "Mad Men" from the drama series race; it won this award three years running (2008 - 2010). The HFPA also passed on the second seasons of "American Horror Story: Asylum" and "Game of Thrones." 

Reigning two-time Emmy champ Julie Bowen ("Modern Family") was snubbed again this year. Also MIA: Emmy winners Jon Cryer ("Two and a Half Men") and Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad").
