Published by Business Insider on Mon, 09 Dec 2019

The 2020 Golden Globe nominations were announced in Los Angeles on Monday at 8 a.m. ET.Hit shows like HBO's "Chernobyl" and Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" were recognized, but other major contenders like Netflix's "When They See Us" and "Little Women "director Greta Gerwig didn't score a nomination.And actresses Zendaya and Regina King were also passed over for a chance at awards.Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.The 2020 Golden Globe nominations were announced in Los Angeles on Monday morning, and fans are calling out the awards show for passing over important female and people of color contenders.Hit shows like Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and the HBO dark comedy "Barry" received nominations, but major series like Netflix's limited series "When They See Us" and HBO's teen drama "Euphoria" didn't receive nods, despite being some of the most relevant and riveting shows on TV.And despite Hollywood's recent push to be more inclusive and understanding of feminist, LGBTQ, and POC stories, the nominations for this year's Golden Globes didn't seem to reflect that.Here are 10 times the Golden Globes failed women and people of color this year.Netflix's limited series "When They See Us" didn't receive any nominations, despite lead actor Jharrel Jerome receiving an Emmy for his performance.The show is based on the real-life experiences of the Exonerated Five (formerly called the Central Park Five), a group of black and Hispanic teenagers who were wrongly arrested, convicted, and imprisoned for a crime they didn't commit.After the nominations were announced, fans of the show took to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the show being snubbed.Fans felt that Jerome should have been recognized for his masterful performance.Jerome notably received the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a limited series at the 2019 Emmysbut was completely passed over for a 2020 Golden Globe award.Even though Greta Gerwig's "Little Women" premieres this year, she still wasn't nominated for best director.Gerwig received a Golden Globe in 2017 for her acclaimed film "Lady Bird," and was even nominated for best director at the Academy Awards that same year. However, despite releasing another film this year, she still wasn't recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the group responsible for the Golden Globe nominations).Zendaya gave a powerful performance on HBO's "Euphoria," but didn't end up getting nominated.As the teenage drug addict Rue on "Euphoria," Zendaya captivated viewers and earned plenty of praise for her acting. However, she still wasn't able to score a nomination for a 2020 Golden Globesomething that's causing fans to riot online.Lupita Nyong'o received critical acclaim for her role in "Us," but wasn't able to score a nomination.Nyong'o played two characters in 2019 horror film "Us"but still wasn't able to grab a Golden Globe nomination for lead actress in a motion picture. Instead, the nominees consisted solely of white women."Hustlers' director Lorene Scafaria was also snubbed.Much like Gerwig, Scafaria didn't manage to garner a nomination for best director, despite releasing a successful film this year"Hustlers," which starred J.Lo, Cardi B, and Lizzo.Florence Pugh appeared in two films this year, but didn't nab a Golden Globe nomination for either.As the emotionally fragile Dani in "Midsommar" and as the youngest March sister, Amy, in "Little Women," Pugh was one of the most interesting actresses to watch this year. Still, though, she didn't receive a nomination for either project."A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" was directed by Marielle Heller, who was also omitted from the best director nominations.The film has drawn a lot of positive attention for its portrayal of television personality Fred Rogers' life, but Heller still wasn't nominated for best director at the Globes.Regina King, who plays Angela Abar on HBO's "Watchmen," didn't score a nomination despite giving a showstopping performance."Watchmen" follows King's character Angela as she unravels a white supremacist conspiracy in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and also comes to terms with her family history of crime-fighting. Although King's performance (and the show as a whole) has been widely praised, neither King nor "Watchmen" scored any nominations.Billy Porter didn't get nominated for his role on "Pose," despite winning an Emmy this year.Even though he's made waves in the entertainment and fashion industries this year, Porter, who stars on FX's "Pose," wasn't nominated for a Golden Globe.
