Shocking Golden Globes (Film) snubs: Oprah Winfrey, Maritn Scorsese …

The Golden Globes nominated a lot of expected contenders, but in a year crowded with viable contenders there were inevitably major snubs, including Oprah Winfrey, who was believed to be the frontrunner to win Best Motion Picture Supporting Actress for “The Butler,” and Martin Scorsese, who missed the cut for Best Director even though “The Wolf of Wall Street” was nominated for Best Picture (Musical/Comedy).

Saving Mr. Banks” was also notably absent, earning only a bid for lead actress Emma Thompson but missing out on Best Picture (Drama) and Best Supporting Actor (Tom Hanks).
