The Movie Surprises and Snubs of the 2018 Golden Globes

Call Me By Your Name”: While this awards-season darling collected three nominations – for best drama, best actor in a drama and best supporting actor – neither its director, Luca Guadagnino, nor its screenwriter, James Ivory, received nominations for their work.

“Wonder Woman”: Though somewhat of a longer shot, this rousing crowd pleaser and box office smash directed by Patty Jenkins was left empty-handed.

Tiffany Haddish: This was a breakthrough year for Ms. Haddish, who gave a standout performance in the buddy-flick “Girls Trip,” stealing scenes from her co-stars, Regina Hall, Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Jake Gyllenhaal: The actor gave a raw, honest performance as a double amputee and survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing in “Stronger,” but he was also shut out of the nominations.
