Today’s TV Addict Top 5: Golden Globe Snubs


FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS’ Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton
Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.… football games that is. Unfortunately, when it comes to some much deserved award recognition, well, sadly that’s an entirely different story.

In a family brimming with worthy nominees, Ty Burrell’s clueless dad Phil truly put the fun into dysfunction.

Parker is that rare Hollywood gem whose beauty actually undermines the fact that she’s Wisteria Lane’s most entertaining housewife.

Parsons is to THE BIG BANG THEORY what Hugh Laurie is to HOUSE. ‘Nuff said.

From Everwood Colorado to Pawnee Indiana, nobody does clueless funny like Chris Pratt.

  • I’m with you on Friday Night Lights. What does this show have to do to get some recogniton? I think part of the problem is the fact that both leads (Britton and Chandler) are so good, no one thinks its acting. Maybe if Connie’s character suffered a breakdown and sold her baby or Chandler’s character brought in more wives, would that get it some attention? lol Nah, then it wouldn’t be FNL. It’d be Big Desperate FNL. lol

    Wow, just saw I was kind of quoted at the top. Thanks TVAddict! 🙂

    My Top 5:

    1. LOST, best drama
    2. Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family’s Cam for Supporting Actor
    3. John Noble, Fringe’s Walter for Supporting Actor
    4. Zach Levi, Chuck for Actor
    5. Kristen Chenoweth, Pushing Daisies’ Olive for Supporting Actress

  • John

    The biggest problem with Modern Family is that all of the main actors are so god they split votes. Depending on who you ask, different people think different stars should get the nomination. The only saving grace is that, if there’s a God, they will all win the Screen Actors Guild award for Best Ensemble in a Comedy, because that’s really what it is.

  • Alicia

    Parks and Rec needed to be nominated for best comedy series. Entourage, really? Really?

  • Calila

    I agree with Friday Night Lights but the snubs I am most ticked off about is Sons Of Anarchy/Katey Segal/Charlie Hunnam. SoA Is one of the best shows on television in my book. KS was just phenomanal as Gemma deals with everthing that happened to her. And CH was incredible all season long….but his howl of pain at the end of the finale was truely heartbreaking.

  • I don’t understand how Emerson was the only LOST nod. The scene of Sawyer & Juliet in the finale alone should have been worth more nods.

    Also, Agreeing on Big Bang Theory. A series that continues to improve as the show goes along… it was most definitely snubbed. Do they not get the jokes?

  • Danelle

    You missed Sons of Anarchy. Katey Segal was amazing this season! Gemma’s storyline was tragic and she was phenomenal. Charlie Hunnam was great as well. The show is one of the best shows on television, never leaves you disappointed. The finale blew me away, I can’t believe it did not recieve a single nom.

    I love True Blood but SOA deserved it more.

    Right on with the Big Bang Theory, that show blows all other comedies out of the water.

  • ots

    Agree about Pratt. P and R has improve 100% since the first six shows that aired last year. it’s a totally different show. Everyone has found their footing and Chris Pratt is the break out star of the show.

    The Sons of Anarchy snub was expected. Like most shows that are a bit outside of the norm it gets overlooked(The Wire, The Shield etc…) Perhaps the best show on TV. Well written and perfectly executed. Gritty and emotional. Lots of comparisons to The Sopranos but I disagree with them. Sons is even better!

  • Amy D

    I’m still wondering how Mathew Morison from Glee got a nom but Zackery Levi from Chuck didn’t.

  • Mia

    couldnt agree with you more on item #4 !
    I love both these men! cant go wrong with Jim Parsons or Hugh Laurie-

  • I love Big Bang Theory. JP’s Sheldon is amazing. However, I contend, without Galecki’s Leonard the show has no center.

    I will get grief for this, but I think NCIS is a really good show. I know it skews older (my mother likes the show), but it is a solid cast with good scripts. Maybe the best maybe not, but definitely one of the top 5.

    My top 5 comedies:
    Big Bang Theory
    How I Met Your Mother
    Modern Family
    Greek (This could be comedy or drama, but this works best for me)
    Scrubs (For last season more than for the first couple episodes of this one)

    My Top 5 Dramas
    Sons of Anarchy
    Burn Notice

  • TVFan

    Where was Chuck’s nod. Now that he knows kung-fu, the Hollywood Foreign Press best be watching their backs!

  • When Jax screamed in frustration after the man who took his son, I thought “Give Charlie Hunnam his Emmy, GG, everything, NOW!” SoA was definitely robbed. And Katey Segal playing a rape victim, to a tortured mom/wife and finally a fugitive. I only started watching this season but SoA is definitely one of my fave tv shows, up there with FNL and Lost.

  • Cassie

    You know who was really robbed? Sons of Anarachy! That show is absolutely brilliant and this season was full of very powerful performance…especially Katey Sagal, the way she handled her character Gemma’s rape and recovery was just so brutally honest. SoA not getting nominated or better yet Katey not getting nominated is a shame on the Hollywood Foreign Press.

    Also on a side note…I know that the CW gets blasted as a network in general but Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki who play the Winchester brothers on Supernatural have been amazing all season long as well, it’s just a shame that they’ll never get recognized for anything they do because they’re on the CW. I mean True Blood gets nominated and Supernatural doesn’t? That’s just a ridiculous in my mind.

  • LJ

    I also agree with others about Katey Sagal. Her work on Sons of Anarchy was very good. I’m a fan of Mad Men but I didn’t think January Jones’ work was extremely good in season 3. I’m also fans of Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler. I figured they would be snubbed but it’s still disappointing.

  • nicole

    SOA not getting nominated is straight bull s**t! Katey Sagal was robbed. Especially when you look at who did get nominated. A bunch of s**t shows!!!

  • Great! Thank for information, I’m looking for it for
    a long time,
