List Criteria: Only films, actors, and actresses who were nominated for 2016 Golden Globe awards.

The Golden Globe nominations have arrived! While the nominees start optimistically practicing their speeches, it’s time for the rest of us to predict the winners. Part of predicting who will win is realizing that who we want to win doesn’t always sync up with the actual winners. That’s right, with Hollywood politics, personal favors, and Scientology, the award winners are rarely the very best in their category. That means it’s time to answer the big question: Which Golden Globes Nominees should win but won’t? That’s right, this list is all about ranking the most underrated Golden Globes nominees of 2016. 
 

Many people believe that Mad Max: Fury Road should win Best Motion Picture - Drama. While Fury Road was a huge critical hit and beloved by the general audience, the voters may prefer to give the award to a more pretentious and serious film like Carol. Similarly, Sylvester Stallone gave an amazing performance as and aging Rocky Balboa in Creed but he may get snubbed in favor of a more prestige performer. 
 

So tell us with your votes who deserves to win a Golden Globe this year, but won’t. These underdog Golden Globes nominees were great films or gave amazing performances and should win a Golden Globe but won’t. Vote up the actors and movies you wish would win but will invariably end up on the 2016 Golden Globes snubs list.
