Award season is coming! The Golden Globes just announced their nominations for the 2015 award season and there are a surprising number of names that we expected to see on the list this year but didn’t! As such, we have created a list of the 7 biggest snubs of 2015. Many of these actors, actresses, television shows and movies were expected to get a nomination from the Golden Globes but, instead, they got nothing! We’re excited to see if they end up getting some love from the Academy, but it is a little soon to tell how that will play out!
7. Bradley Cooper
Bradley Cooper gave a superb performance in the biographical action drama movie, “American Sniper.” He played the lead character Chris Kyle, a Navy SEAL, who is touring Afghanistan. He totally transformed himself for this role. He gained 40 pounds, picked up a Texas accent and gave a restrained but deeply emotional performance. In spite of this, he was totally shut out for this year’s Golden Globe Awards and the Screen Actors Guild. Many still think that he will get an Oscar nomination, but it’s all up in the air at this point.
According to Cooper, acting isn’t about the award nominations. He has actually come out and said that he doesn’t want to win an Oscar. “It would change nothing. Nothing. The things in my life that aren’t fulfilled would not be fulfilled. Career-wise, right now, it’s better that I don’t win one. I don’t want to win. I don’t,” he said.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
