The annual ceremony returns after a hiatus last year following criticism from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the Globes’ awarding body) for its lack of diversity.
The nominees were announced on Monday (December 12) and included some of the most popular and critically acclaimed films and television series of the past year
HBO’s game of Thrones spin off, house of the dragonreceived an award for Best Drama Series, as did Emma D’Arcy for Best Television Actress in a Drama Series (although D’Arcy considers herself non-binary).
However, the fantasy series received no nominations in the Best Actor category or any other category.
Fans were particularly upset by the omission of Paddy Considine, who played the embattled King Viserys I on the show.
Considine earned praise for his performance as an ailing patriarch desperate to reunite his fractured family.
“house of the dragon gets some love from the golden globes but all i can do is make sure Paddy Considine doesn’t get the RESPECT he deserves!” the official fansite Winter is Coming tweeted.
“No Golden Globes nomination for THIS performance of Paddy Considine is my villain origin story #GoldenGlobes [sic]’ another wrote alongside a clip of Considine on the show.
“Paddy Considine was 100% denied a Best Actor nomination at the Golden Globes. His performance was one of the reasons for this house of the dragon was a smash hit,” tweeted another fan.
The Golden Globes will be televised on Tuesday, January 10th on NBC, with comedian Jerrod Carmichael taking on the role of host.
