SNUB: "The Butler" -- This movie’s strong run at the box office in late summer had many predicting several awards nominations, but it got shut out across the board. No respect for a touching, if glossy, look at history.
SNUB: "Game of Thrones" -- Did you watch "Red Wedding?" People are still talking about it. "Game of Thrones" had an excellent season (again) killing off a bunch of its main characters, as the show is wont to do.
SURPRISE: Greta Gerwig, Best Actress Musical or Comedy, Frances Ha -- Gerwig delivers a great performance as a lost 20-something, but who thought awards bodies would recognize the acting in this critical darling from Spring?
SURPRISE: Andy Samberg, Best Actor, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" -- This isn't your "SNL" Andy Samberg anymore. Well, it kind of is, but over the course of a not-even-completed season of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," Samberg has proven leading comedic man ability.
SNUB: Woody Allen, Screenplay, "Blue Jasmine" -- They are giving the guy the Cecil B. Demille Award, but they didn’t nominate his latest screenplay?
SNUB: Anna Gunn, Best Supporting Actress, "Breaking Bad" -- Gunn's role continued to improve over each season on "Breaking Bad." Her reaction alone during the "I did it for me" scene deserves a nom, as does holding her own in every scene with Bryan Cranston.
SNUB: "Fruitvale Station" -- The HFPA overlooked a rising star in front of the camera (Michael B. Jordan) and behind it (Ryan Coogler). That's two Weinstein Company titles shut out.
SURPRISE: Rob Lowe, Best Supporting Actor, "Behind the Candelabra" -- How long was Lowe even on the screen for?
SNUB: Tom Hanks, Best Supporting Actor, "Saving Mr. Banks" -- You try impersonating Walt Disney.
SNUB: Ty Burrell, Best Supporting Actor, "Modern Family" -- Watch "Modern Family." Yes, it's an ensemble, and Sofia Vergara got a nod, but Burrell handles both leading man and comic relief duties masterfully.
SURPRISE: Sally Hawkins, Supporting Actress, "Blue Jasmine" -- Cate Blanchett was a shoe-in, but if forced to guess a second nomination for the movie we would have bet on Woody Allen’s screenplay. A nice reward for the exceptionally talented Hawkins.
SNUB: "Homeland" -- GG kicked off the awards season love for "Homeland" in 2012 when they named the show TV's best drama and gave the lead dramatic actress award to Claire Danes. But the Globes decided this year to give someone else a chance, ignoring "Homeland" altogether.
SURPRISE: Idris Elba, Best Actor Drama, "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" -- Forest Whitaker was long considered a shoe-in in this category, but it’s good to see Stringer Bell recognized. Elba always delivers.
SNUB: "Boardwalk Empire" -- The HBO drama is consistently very good -- who cares if it takes the occasional historical liberty? Every loves a gangster, or so we thought.
SNUB: "Happy," Best Song, Pharrell Williams: The HFPA rewarded “The Hunger Games” instead of one of the world’s greatest producers. Does Coldplay really need any more awards?
SURPRISE: All the British Love -- Sure the HFPA has foreign in its name, but the only “foreign” movies they recognized in the main categories have Brits in prominent roles – like "Philomena" and "Rush" -- and most of the surprises (Elba, Hawkins) are also British.
SURPRISE: Michael J. Fox, "The Michael J. Fox Show" -- Fox may not have TV's best ratings, but he gets lots of love from the HFPA. Globes viewers love to see an actor overcome tremendous obstacles to deliver a solid performance -- they also recognized Michael C. Hall's work on "Dexter" after his courageous fight with cancer.
SNUB: James Gandolfini, Supporting Actor, Enough Said: Sentimental reasons aside, Gandolfini delivered a strong, subtle performance to remind viewers he’s more than Tony Soprano. At least his co-star, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, scored a nom.
SURPRISE: "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," Fox's hit new Tuesday comedy has suffered a little bit with its "Dads" lead-in, but the show is a legit comedic hit. Samberg may be the undisputed leader, but the cop show is a true ensemble.
SNUB: Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke & Julie Delpy, Screenplay, "Before Midnight" -- The final movie in this trilogy earned rave reviews because of (not in spite of) its relentless chatter. At least Delpy's acting nomination means it didn't get shut out entirely.
SNUB: "Veep" -- Julia Louis-Dreyfus got hers, but the HBO comedy about the slightly smaller, less-oval office did not. The show is still flying under the radar a bit in its third season.
SNUB: "Mad Men" -- The awards-season favorite was denied a drama nomination despite one of its stronger seasons. Perhaps after six seasons of Draper and Co. landing Clios, Emmys and everything else, Globes voters decided to share the wealth.
SNUB? Tina Fey, "30 Rock" -- Some awards-watchers -- and even we here at TheWrap -- were initially surprised that Golden Globes co-host Tina Fey didn't receive any nominations for the final episodes of "30 Rock." But to be eligible for the Globes, the series would have needed to air six episodes in 2013 -- and only aired five.
