Celebrity dad Matthew Fox must be sitting at home scratching his head and wondering what he’s got to do to get one of those Golden Globe nominations 2011 – the man died in the final season of “Lost,” for crying out loud, and his show didn’t even get a thanks-for-the-memories best drama nomination, let alone a nod for his stellar acting. That leads the list of Golden Globe nominations biggest snubs – not even one lonely nod for groundbreaking series “Lost.” But trust me, there are plenty of others. Here’s the other four biggest Golden Globes 2011 snubs:
1. “127 Hours” for best motion picture/drama: James Franco, favored eye candy for moms everywhere, earned a well-deserved nomination, but how about the superlative movie, which made a harrowing subject surprisingly watchable? (And director Danny Boyle, who also deserved a nod but didn’t get one.)
2. “Toy Story 3″ for best motionpicture/musical/comedy: There wasn’t a better, more clever or superbly acted movie this year. Period. It should have been promoted from the best animated movie category.
3. No nods for “True Grit:” The Hollywood Foreign Press Association usually loves the Coen brothers, so I’m baffled by the oversight for their new film. And worried it won’t be good date night material ….
4. Nearly all the “Modern Family” cast: All six of the leads deserved a nod, not just the superlative Sofia Vergara.
What do you think – are your favorites missing too?
