Superheros, Sci-Fi Snubbed At Golden Globes Last Night

The 74th Golden Globes Awards were given out last night, and both superheroes and sci-fi were majorly snubbed at the event. Despite one or more nominations for Deadpool, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, and Westworld, none of them came away with wins at the ceremony. La La Land was the big winner with seven awards, while The Night Manager, The People v. O.J. Simpson, Elle, and Atlanta had multiple wins as well. Suicide Squad’s Viola Davis did score a win, but for her performance in Fences, not the Squad, as did former Amazing Spider-Man actress Emma Stone, who took home one of La La Land’s many awards. British period piece The Crown, which won two awards, defeated both Game of Thrones and Westworld for Best Drama, despite not featuring a single android or dragon (we’re pretty sure – we didn’t actually watch it).

Well, damn, Golden Globes. Tell us how you really feel.

Will The Oscars rectify this atrocity by giving best picture to Batman v. Superman later this year? We’ll keep an eye on it and let you know.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
