While many popular TV shows and films are already considered winners — either according to the box office or network ratings — some noteworthy names were missing from the Golden Globes' list of nominees Thursday.
Dick Cheney biopic "Vice" led nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards, which will air on Jan. 6, with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's "A Star Is Born" revival, Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali's touching "Green Book" and period romp "The Favourite" following close behind. There were few debates about whether these motion pictures were worthy of the words, though there were a few titles fans believe the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) left out.
"Black Panther" star Michael B. Jordan wasn't named as a contender for best-supporting actor and the director of the popular film, Ryan Coogler, was also not mentioned. Ryan Gosling, star of "First Man" — a movie that highlights Neil Armstrong's daring Apollo 11 mission to the moon — also didn't make the cut.

Yes, Donald Glover scored an acting nomination for the series but that's it for "Atlanta." In 2017, Glover won best actor in a television comedy series and the series overall took home the prize for best television series – musical or comedy.
