Biggests fan upsets? When it comes to TV series, “Mad Men,” “The Walking Dead,” and “House of Cards” all of these series did not receive any noms from The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). When it comes to feature films, fans moaned when they realized the big Bio Drama, “Straight Outta Compton” received not one Golden Globe nom this season.
Notable actors who did NOT receive a GG nom this season are Tom Hardy in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” Tom Hanks in “Bridge of Spies,” and Johnny Depp in “Black Mass.”
If Hardy, Hanks and Depp aren’t enough of a blow to “Globe” fans just think of how Meryl Streep feels...
The HFPA did NOT recognize the 8-Time Golden Globe winner this season, who stars in a film based on the true story, “The Suffragette.” Streep portrays Emmeline Pankhurst, a British political activist who was part of the Women's Social and Political Union during the feminist movement in the early 1900s. The film received a 72% on Rotten Tomatoes with an average rating of 6.6/10.
Streep currently holds the record for the most Golden Globe nominations (29).
American composer, John Williams with comes close with 25 GG noms.
Williams is best known for creating memorable soundtracks in numerous films including: “Jaws,” “E.T.: Extra Terrestrial,” and “Saving Private Ryan.”
We have no idea if Meryl is upset she didn’t get the nom this season but, one thing is for sure, Streep will have to wait till next year to see if she can break her own record with a 30th Golden Globe nomination.
