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.

Also MIA is "Game of Thrones," which reaped two SAG Awards nominations while two new Netflix series -- "Arrested Development" and "Orange is the New Black" -- reaped only performance bids.

Among new laffers, "The Crazy Ones" may be a hit for CBS, but it was a miss for Globe voters. 

Below, the lists of those programs and performers who won't be in the running on Jan. 12 for the 71st annual edition of these kudos. 

"Game of Thrones"
"Mad Men"
"Orange is the New Black"

Jeff Daniels, "The Newsroom"
Jon Hamm, "Mad Men"
Freddie Highmore, "Bates Motel"
Damian Lewis, "Homeland"

Oscars: Get Naked = Win

Kate Winslet, 'The Reader' (Best Actress, 2008)

Not too many years ago, if stars did a nude scene in movies or magazines, they were barred from serious feature films. Nowadays baring all can get them a date with Hollywood's Naked Golden Boy.  Let's look back at 24 Oscar-winning performances that involved some degree of nudity.

After five failed nominations, Kate Winslet finally won an Oscar for extensive nude scenes in "The Reader" while she frolicked with a teenager lover.
