On January 10, the Golden Globes will kick off the 2016 awards season in earnest. While several awards ceremonies will have come and gone by then, the Golden Globes is the first that people actually care about. (And yes, we know the Emmys have already aired.) Those films that perform well at the ceremony are also the leading contenders for Oscar gold in the coming months. Unfortunately, in a year packed with goodies on both the small screen and at the cinema, several solid performers were left out of the spotlight when it came time for Golden Globe recognition. Here are 15 disappointments and outright surprises that didn’t make the cut.
1. Cristin Milioti
If it wasn’t bad enough that shows keep sticking the extremely talented Milioti with doomed roles, they also keep overlooking her when awards season rolls around. For the past two years, the irrepressibly likable actress has portrayed two memorable supporting characters. Last year she nailed a job with unenviable high expectations when she tackled the role of ‘The Mother’ on How I Met Your Mother, and this year she stole the show (in a series packed with scene-stealing performances) in season two of FX’s Fargo. Someone give this woman a starring role and a truckload of awards, please!
