As the nominees for the Golden Globes rolled in, many Twitter users began sounding off on the snubs for the 2018 ceremony. Among them, Tiffany Haddish’s lack of a nomination for her breakout role in “Girls Trip” and no screenplay noms for the racial satirical thriller, “Get Out.”
“Girls Trip” failed to score any nomination at all. And Haddish’s appearance in the best performing female-led comedy of the summer led her to score her own comedy special but failed to give her a Best Supporting Actress nom.

Others slammed the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for not giving Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” consideration in the Best Screenplay or Best Director categories. It did, however, pick up nominations for Best Picture – Comedy or Musical and Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

So the HFPA thinks it can just snub Jordan Peele and Get Out in the Best Director and Best Screenplay categories at the Golden Globe Awards without any backlash? pic.twitter.com/tAqJyQ7O8T

How did Get Out not get nominated for best screenplay at the Golden Globes? It's easily the best written movie of the year.

Get Out got snubbed by the Golden Globes even though it's one of the most important films this year. Great, another year of the movie industry stepping on the creativity of people of color.

“Mudbound” scored a couple of nominations — Mary J. Blige is up for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture and the flick is nominated for Best Original Song – Motion Picture. But the film about a Black family and a white family in 1940s Mississippi was shut out of the Best Motion Picture – Drama category and director Dee Rees failed to be nominated for her contribution.
Biggest snub I'm noticing from #GoldenGlobes noms: Mudbound and Dee Rees.

On the flip side, there were several Black stars who did receive recognition for their work.
“Insecure” star and co-creator Issa Rae is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for the second year in a row. “Black-ish” scored a couple noms in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, for Anthony Anderson, and Best Television Series – Comedy. Also in TV, Sterling K. Brown is nominated in the drama category for “This Is Us.”
Among movie nominations for “Get Out” and “Mudbound,” Octavia Spencer is nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture in “The Shape of Water.” And Denzel Washington scored a Best Actor nomination for “Roman J. Israel, Esq.”
