List Rules Vote up the ones most deserving of a Golden Globe nomination.

Right on the heels of award season nominations stomps the awards show snubs. The Golden Globes 2019 snubs might be slightly less talked about than what got snubbed in 2018, but that doesn't mean they don't sting. The biggest snubs of the 2019 Golden Globes seem to be overlooking the horror and science fiction genres, ignoring films like Annihilation, A Quiet Place, and Hereditary.

Many good 2018 TV shows that were snubbed include The Little Drummer Girl, Maniac, and Succession.

Those who aren't film fanatics may not realize the Golden Globes snubs carried out against players like Barry Jenkins, Ryan Gosling, and Alex Garland whose directing, acting and screenwriting respectively, got shut out from the 2019 Golden Globes. Do think the 2019 Golden Globe snubs will go down among the worst Golden Globe snubs of all time? Only time will tell.
