Who Was Snubbed At The Golden Globes 2016?

It wasn't happy news for everyone, as there were a number of notable absences from this year's list of nominations. 


1. Johnny Depp 

He's been considered an Oscar frontrunner for 'Black Mass', but despite his transformative performance as Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger Johnny Depp still didn't make the shortlist for 'Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama' category.

2. Michael Caine and Sir Ian McKellen 

How can you miss these legends off the list?! They both had well-received performances in their respective movies in 'Youth' and 'Mr Holmes'.

3. Charlize Theron

The actress' tough girl persona in 'Mad Max: Fury Road' isn't recognised despite the film picking up two other nominations.

4. Tom Hardy 

After starring in cinematic epic 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and his stellar efforts opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in 'The Revenant' we thought he'd at least get a mention!
