There’s always next year!
Megan Fox, Ed Helms and Jessica Alba announced the 2013 Golden Globe nominations in Beverly Hills earlier today, and like every year, there were quite a few surprises and snubs.
Mad Men, which has won four Golden Globes since its 2007 premiere, was noticeably missing from the Best TV Drama category – though leading man Jon Hamm did score a nod in the Best Actor - Television Drama category. He was also the only actor from the cast to land an individual nomination from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Though Julie Bowen has taken home the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her portrayal of Claire Dunphy in the hit show Modern Family the past two years, she has yet to be acknowledged by the HFPA. Julie’s co-star Sofia Vergara, however, was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category and will face off against Nashville’s Hayden Panettiere, The Good Wife’s Archie Panjabi, Game Change’s Sarah Paulson and Downton Abbey’s Maggie Smith.
Also left out? Ryan Murphy. The creator of hits such as Glee, American Horror Story and Nip Tuck has yet to be recognized by the HFPA, though he’s won a Primetime Emmy.
As for film, Oscar winner Christian Bale won’t repeat his 2011 Golden Globe win. Critics gave him rave reviews for his performance as Batman in The Dark Knight Rises, but the HFPA did not give him a nod. Co-stars Anne Hathaway (she is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Les Misérables), Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy were also overlooked, though the flick was summer’s biggest hit.
But it’s not all about the snubs. There were some surprises as well — most of them welcome.
In its fifth season, Breaking Bad has finally been nominated for Best TV Drama. New Girl’s Max Greenfield – who plays the overly sexualized and quirky Schmidt — landed a nod for the show’s second season.
Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt woke up happy campers today. They were surprisingly nominated for Best Actor and Best Actress in musical or comedy, for their roles in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen.
