Once an important precursor award ceremony, the Golden Globes have earned a reputation of being mocked and ridiculed for the indifference with which they carry themselves, and in light of recent controversies, perhaps rightly so.
The Globes are rarely taken seriously - both by awards prognosticators that desperately look for possible links with the Oscars; and by the nominees themselves, who have infamously spent more time at the open bar at the ceremony.
And though the Globes have been practically cancelled out of existence following the decade-long controversy surrounding its white-washed voting body - the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) - the Globes have unfortunately had a history of significant linkages with the Best Picture lineups later on at the Oscars.
But before we get to talking about the snubs, first things first.
India's RRR has been nominated in the Best Motion Picture - Non-English Language category. This is the former Foreign Language category.
The song Naatu Naatu from RRR has also been nominated for a Golden Globe in the Best Original Song - Motion Picture category.
So, with all the talk around the SS Rajamouli-directed not being sent to the Oscars as India's official entry, a Golden Globe nomination comes as good news for the film team and its millions of fans. (However, RRR still has a chance at the Oscars. More on that here.)
Now, here are the worst film snubs from last night’s Golden Globe nominations announcement:
The 80th Golden Globes ceremony is set to be televised live on January 10, 2023; for the first time since its cancellation from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, US.
