After a lot of anticipation, Golden Globe nominations are finally in, with Barbie and Succession leading the way with nine nods each. The HFPA made some pretty great choices this year, but some of this year’s nominations still left us scratching our heads.

Snub: Best Musical/Comedy

It was quite a shocker to see several hit musicals, including The Color Purple, The Little Mermaid, and Wonka shot out of the best comedy or musical field to make room for No Hard Feelings starring Jennifer Lawrence.

Surprise: Foreign Films Make a Cut

It was quite refreshing to see foreign films Anatomy of a Fall and The Zone of Interest, receive nods for the best drama film, while Fallen Leaves’ Alma Pöysti even broke into the competitive acting field.

Snub: Abbot Elementary Stars

Abbott Elementary will be in the running for the best comedy/musical series this year, but Quinta Brunson is the only member of its ensemble cast to receive an acting nod.

Surprise: Saltburn Love

Barry Keoghan and Rosamund Pike received acting nods for their performances in Saltburn, with the latter even booting front-runners Viola Davis (Air) and America Ferrera (Barbie) out of the star-studded best supporting actress field.

Snub: Harrison Ford

The HFPA has a habit of showering A-list stars with love, but they still gave Harrison Ford zero nominations this year, showing no love for his performances in 1923 and Shrinking.
