2014 Golden Globe Nominations SNUBS: Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks, Claire Danes, 'Mad Men' & More [VIDEO]


The Golden Globes bring the worlds of movies and TV together, but some actors, movies and shows are snubbed of arguably deserving nominations.

For the 2014 ceremony, the Golden Globes nominated several new actors and shows in the television categories while honoring more veterans and previous winners in the film categories.

In the television categories, the biggest snub appears to be Homeland, a show that won Best Drama Series two years in a row but could not even get a nomination this year. The show's star Claire Danes was also snubbed of a nomination after winning the past two years as well.

Additionally, Mad Men and all of its actors were snubbed of nominations, including its star Jon Hamm. The often awarded drama has declined in popularity among award groups over the past few years.

Over in the movie categories, many awards experts were surprised that talk show queen Oprah Winfrey was snubbed of a nomination for her work in Lee Daniels' The Butler. The snub was seen as shocking, considering the awards organization likes to reward big stars, as noted by The Huffington Post. Lee Daniels' The Butler was ignored altogether in the nominations, indicating a lack of support for the film.

Another arguable surprise from the nominations was the lack of Tom Hanks in Best Supporting Actor. Hanks played innovator Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks, a role that many thought would be a shoe-in for a potential nomination. He did, however, get a nomination in Best Lead Actor for Captain Phillips.
