If there is one thing we can all agree on when it comes to award season, it will be disappointing for any black and brown talent.
This time it is the Golden Globes and the amount of Golden Globe snubs there are.
Award season goes like this: either nominations will be unsurprisingly non-melanated or there will be diverse nominations but non-diverse winners. There really is no middle ground when it comes to Hollywood appreciating non-white talent. It is sad really. But not surprising.
Earlier this week, the Golden Globes just announced their nominations. And while we are celebrating many of those nominated, we refuse to ignore all the Golden Globe snubs because the act of leaving certain performances off the ballots, makes no sense. We are trying to figure out, do they not watch those shows or they just can’t see award-winning performances, when it has you grappling at the screen. And considering we spent most of 2020 in the house, we aren’t giving them the benefit of the former.
So ahead of the 78th Golden Globes which will air Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. on NBC, see all the Golden Globes snubs that make absolutely no sense.
