The 2014 Golden Globe Nominations

The 2014 Golden Globe nominations were announced today by Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Peter Krause and Paula Patton. The nominations are below.

What’s missing? Only the best two comedies on TV: Louie and Veep. But on the flip side, in the TV comedy category, Silicon Valley, Jane the Virgin, and Transparent landed deserving nominations (tough category, that).

Showtime’s The Affair landed several nominations (beating out Homeland in the best drama category), which means that there must be some Golden Globe members that managed to stay awake long enough to watch the series. Mad Men, as it was at the SAGs, is also missing. In fact, Mad Men received zero nominations, and Tatiana Maslany — nominated for a Golden Globe last year — was snubbed this year. Also missing: The Americans (you should watch the sweet-ass season three trailer) and Hannibal. Naturally.

As for the film categories? With Comedy and Drama categories, the Golden Globes usually manage to hit everything that is expected to be nominated, although genre films — per usual — are completely ignored (sorry, Snowpiercer). It’s a very dull slate of films, saving for BIRDMAN and, of course, Boyhood.
