The 2023 Golden Globes nominations arrived this morning, and although we’re excited for Ana de Armas, there were quite a few big-name TV shows, movies and stars that got left off the list (ahem, Nope?!). Here, a complete list of the biggest Golden Globes snubs of 2023.

1. Keke Palmer for Nope

Keke Palmer recently announced that she’s pregnant with her first child. Unfortunately, the actress wasn’t recognized for her role in Jordan Peele’s Nope, where she played Emerald Haywood. The same goes for Daniel Kaluuya, who didn’t receive a nod for playing Haywood Jr.

2. Tom Cruise for Top Gun: Maverick

Many expected Tom Cruise to receive a nomination for reviving his iconic role in Top Gun: Maverick…but that wasn’t the case.

3. Euphoria

Season two of the popular comedy hit HBO this year, and we were hoping it would get a little love from the Globes. Unfortunately, the show was left out of the Best Television Series category.

4. Mindy Kaling for Sex Lives of College Girls

Mindy Kaling’s popular show returned for season 2, but it didn’t make the Golden Globes cut. That’s right, neither the show nor the cast received a single nomination.

5. Ticket to Paradise

After all the excitement surrounding the rom-com, the HFPA overlooked it when it came to nomination time. The film not only starred Julia Roberts and George Clooney, but it also earned around $170 million at the box-office.

6. Stephanie Hsu for Everything Everywhere All at Once

Stephanie Hsu portrayed Joy, the daughter and only child of Waymond (Ke Huy Quan) and Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh). Despite her groundbreaking performance, she wasn’t recognized as a Golden Globe nominee. Womp, womp.

7. Yellowstone

While Kevin Costner is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (Drama), the show itself was excluded from the Best Television Series (Drama) category. Other nominees include Better Call Saul, The Crown, House of the Dragon, Ozark and Severance.

8. Female directors

Some female filmmakers were nominated in other categories—like Women Talking director Sarah Polley, who was nominated for Best Motion Picture Screenplay. However, the all-male list of nominees didn’t go unnoticed.

So, who will actually win when the Golden Globes air on January 10? We’ll have to wait and see.
