2018 Golden Globe snubs for film: ‘The Big Sick,’ Jordan Peele, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Michael Stuhlbarg left out

The 2018 Golden Globe nominations were announced on Monday morning, December 11, and though many of the films we were expecting ended up with top nominations, including “The Shape of Water” with a leading seven bids, there were surprises in several categories. Scroll down for a list of noteworthy snubs, and check out the full list of Globe nominations here.

Perhaps the biggest surprise from the list was the across-the-board absence of “The Big Sick.” We were expecting it to be nominated for Best Film Comedy/Musical, Best Film Comedy/Musical Actor (Kumail Nanjiani), and Best Film Supporting Actress (Holly Hunter). We also thought it had a good shot of making it into the race for Best Screenplay. But the Hollywood Foreign Press Association left it out of every category.

Also missing from the list was strong Oscar hopeful Jake Gyllenhaal for his role as a Boston marathon bombing victim in “Stronger.” Other high-profile actors who aren’t in contention include Gal Gadot (“Wonder Woman”), Kate Winslet (“Wonder Wheel”), Emma Watson (“Beauty and the Beast”), Matt Damon (“Downsizing”), Melissa Leo (“Novitiate”), and Tiffany Haddish (“Girls Trip”), to name a few

Some other films that did earn nominations under-performed relative to our expectations. For instance, “Call Me by Your Name” is up for Best Film Drama, Best Film Drama Actor (Timothee Chalamet), and Best Film Supporting Actor (Armie Hammer), but Luca Guadagnino was left out of the directing race and James Ivory missed the cut for his screenplay. Co-star Michael Stuhlbarg was also absent.

And though “Get Out” earned nominations for Best Film Comedy/Musical and for its lead actor Daniel Kaluuya, the HFPA didn’t nominate Jordan Peele for his writing or directing of the acclaimed horror satire.
