On the television side, the biggest shocker was HBO’s Veep receiving zero nominations, not even one for Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series- Musical or Comedy, for the past five years! Although she and the show have been Emmy darlings for as long as they have been on, the program has yet to receive one Golden Globe award. Insiders are still saying that this shutout was a big deal for the critically acclaimed series.

HBO fared better with its mini-series Big Little Lies, as the show received six nominations, more than any other series on television. This includes nods for its stars Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Alexander Skarsgaard. Good news as the series was just officially picked up for Season 2.

In happier news, Emma Stone could be up for back to back wins in the Best Actress in a Motion Picture: Musical/Comedy for her portrayal of Billie Jean King in Battle of the Sexes.  She won in the same category last year for her role in La La Land, which also earned her an Oscar for Best Actress.

Emma will be competing against Margot Robbie in I, Tonya, Saoirse Ronan for Lady Bird,  Judi Dench in Victoria & Abdul, and Helen Mirren in The Leisure Seeker.  Some stiff competition there, indeed.

First time nominees in the movie category are R&B legend Mary J. Blige for her performance in Mudbound, and Ansel Elgort for Baby Driver. Perhaps Ansel and Shailene Woodley can walk the carpet together, given their illustrious history with their hit movies like The Fault in Our Stars & the Divergent series?
