The Golden Globes 2017 is done and the winners are known. However, talks about the shows snubbed by the awards are just starting.
The names of Golden Globes 2017 winners are out. Thus, the celebrations happening left and right. La La Land emerged as the night’s biggest winner. The musical set a record for winning in all its categories.
Yet it would appear many are taking notice of the winners in the Golden Globes 2017 television segment. Interestingly, some of the biggest shows on the small screen to date did not win.
Surprising Snubs of the Golden Globes 2017 Awards
The nominees for Best Drama Series included Westworld, Stranger Things, The Crown, This Is Us, and Game of Thrones. Thus, it appeared to be anyone’s game. Yet the snub received by both the HBO and Netflix shows took many by surprise. Hence, it became the most unpredictable category of the Golden Globes 2017.
Then again, Samantha Rullo of Bustle did not find the snubs surprising at all. As it turns out, The Crown’s victory was likely since the Awards seem to prefer new shows. Although, the performances of Claire Foy and John Lithgow along with its personal story present sufficient reasons for its winning.
Nonetheless, the future for the freshman drama series can only look brighter. Thus, winning at the Golden Globes could eventually happen for either Stranger Things or Westworld.
Reactions to Golden Globes 2017 Snubs
HBO Programming president Casey Bloys spoke about the surprising snubs for the cable channel’s two shows, Westworld and Game of Thrones. HBO went to the Golden Globes 2017 ceremony with 14 nominations in its pocket. Alas, both shows went home empty-handed in the end.
“On the one hand, I’m very proud of the 14 nominations. On the other hand, it’s always more fun to win but we’re proud of the shows. You win some, you lose some; you have to look forward at the things we have coming up. That’s the way it goes sometimes, we had a good Emmys [but] had an off-year at the Golden Globes. It happens,” Bloys told The Hollywood Reporter.
