Golden Globe Nominations 2012: Snubs and Surprises

HuffPost TV   First Posted: 12/15/11 11:16 AM ET   Updated: 12/15/11 11:41 AM ET

"Community" fans had yet another reason to be outraged as the NBC cult favorite, recently placed on indefinite hiatus, was snubbed at the Golden Globe nominations in favor of head-scratcher Best Comedy nominee "Episodes." Also conspicuously absent from that category's list of nominees: Louis CK's groundbreaking comedy series "Louie" and another much-loved NBC offering, "Parks and Rec."

In other shocking news, "Breaking Bad," widely considered to be among the best hour-long dramas ever to air on television, was snubbed in the Best Drama category, despite the fact that its most recent season was its strongest yet. At least Bryan Cranston made it into the Best Actor in a Drama category, alongside Steve Buscemi for "Boardwalk Empire," Damian Lewis for "Homeland," Jeremy Irons for "The Borgias," and Kelsey Grammar for "Boss."

Who else did the ever-inscrutable Hollywood Foreign Press Association unfairly leave out -- or unexpectedly add in -- when the awards were announced Thursday morning in a ceremony MC'ed by Sofia Vergara, Gerard Butler, Woody Harrleson and Rashida Jones? HuffPost TV's compete list of Golden Globes snubs and surprises is ahead.

SNUB: "Community" for Best TV Series, Comedy

As if "Community" hasn't taken enough hits in recent months, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association also blasphemously neglected to include the Gleendale crew in what it deemed the funniest shows of the year. But we think the HFPA needs to revisit this season's "Remedial Chaos Theory" episode and pick a new timeline. Besides "Modern Family" and this season's breakout hit "New Girl," the rest of the Best Comedy honorees this year miss the mark: "Enlightened," "Episodes," and "Glee," which has its rabid Gleekdom to thank for the nod since the musical dramedy seems to be getting worse by the episode.
