The 2016 Golden Globe nominations have been unveiled and they’re filled with a great mix of usual suspects and total surprises. Of course, like any year, there are loads of movies, TV shows, and performances that didn’t make the cut and while most of these snubs are entirely justified, there are certain areas where the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) simply got it wrong.
