Despite New 8 Year Deal to Stay on NBC, Golden Globes Give Peacock Network Just 3 Nominations


The Hollywood Foreign Press made a lot of people unhappy this morning with various snubs.

But the most disappointed must be NBC, the home of the Golden Globes. NBC just paid a lot of money for a new 8 year contract with the HFPA and Dick Clark Productions.

But NBC received just three nominations. Two were for acting and one was for Best Comedy. They were Kristen Bell for “The Good Place,” Debra Messing for “Will & Grace,” and “The Good Place” for Best Comedy.

Totally snubbed was “This Is Us” and its entire cast including the best actor on TV, Sterling K. Brown. How did that happen?

Also snubbed was “Saturday Night Live” and all its players including Kate McKinnon, who should get an award just for Being.

And while Debra Messing is wonderful, what happened to Eric McCormack and Sean Hayes?

On the other hand, NBC did manage to get one of its stars, Andy Samberg, as co-host of the show with Sandra Oh.
