Warner Bros./New Line/Fox/Columbia

It's almost like the Golden Globes can't surprise us anymore (almost). The awards have become known for making selections that seem zannier and zannier from one year to the next. Who can blame them? As one of the few film awards to split drama and comedy into separate categories, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is left to scrounge up twice the number of nominations as most Hollywood honors. As such, creative selections ensue.

With this year's nominations arriving on Thursday, it's inevitable that at least a few entries will leave us scratching our heads. What fun would it be otherwise? Here are some of the Globes' biggest surprises of the past 20 years.
