Where's Melissa McCarthy? She was this year's Emmy darling, taking the stage in a beauty pageant crown to accept the award for her role on "Mike & Molly." And she stole the show on the big screen this year in "Bridesmaids." But she wasn't recognized for either role by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
New shows are definitely in at the Golden Globes. Freshman series like "American Horror Story," "New Girl" and "Enlightened" were nominated in the best drama or musical/comedy categories, while awards favorites like "Breaking Bad," "30 Rock," "The Good Wife" and "The Big Bang Theory" were all left off.
Sorry, Jim Parsons. The Emmy and Golden Globe-winner wasn't nominated for his role on "The Big Bang Theory," but co-star Johnny Galecki was.
"Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close," a Sept. 11 tearjerker starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, didn't get nominated in the dramatic best picture, actor or actress categories, making the film's Oscar chances look increasingly bleak.
Stephen Spielberg and Clint Eastwood were both shut out of the best director category, respectively, for "War Horse" and "J. Edgar."
"The Tree of Life" won the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival, but was passed over at this year's Golden Globes.
Ryan Gosling got not one, but two Globe nominations, for his role in "The Ides of March" and his supporting part in "Crazy Stupid Love."
Rooney Mara's Oscar prospects got a boost with a nomination in the dramatic actress category for her role in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."
Angelina Jolie's directorial debut "In the Land of Blood and Honey" got nominated for best foreign film, while Madonna picked up a nod for the song "Masterpiece," from her film "W.E."
