What a difference a day makes, right? After the Screen Actors Guild Awards went with the new, the Golden Globes went — as usual — with the new Thursday. Check out our Globes surprises and snubs, and then tell us yours.

Fargo, True Detective and The Affair top Golden Globe nominations


Jane the Virgin: A nomination for the irrepressible Gina Rodriguez was expected, but few saw the series nod coming. These are the first nominations for the CW since its inception in 2006 (The WB scored a series nod for Felicity and a win for Keri Russell in 1999) and wins are not out of the question. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association loves its breakout ingénues — Russell, Claire Danes (My So-Called Life), Jennifer Garner (Alias) and America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) all won for their first seasons — and the Globes never hesitate to invite new shows onto the stage as well. This could very well be a two-handed victory not unlike Ferrera and Ugly Betty's triumphs in 2008 and last year's wins by Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Andy Samberg.

A whole lotta fresh faces:
Jane was just one of the many new shows to receive a nod Thursday. While the SAGs like to play catch-up, we can always count on our pals at the HFPA to be ahead of the curve, or at least first to embrace new blood. Besides Jane and the expected nods for True Detective, Fargo and How to Get Away with Murder's Viola Davis, the Globes also singled out The Affair, Transparent, Silicon Valley and The Knick, all of which were shut out at the SAGs Wednesday. Transparent's two nominations are the first major ones for Amazon.

Claire Danes returns: After dropping Homeland completely last year during its, um, problematic third season, the HFPA welcomed Danes back into the drama actress fold, once again showing they're on top of the pulse. Homeland still isn't at its Season 1 best, but it's been a return to form this year, and Danes has been scorching. The nod is not unlike last year when the Globes brought back The Good Wife in drama series and nominated Josh Charles (on top of the requisite Julianna Margulies nod) during the show's revitalized fifth season.

The Good Wife: Despite a highly competitive field, the legal drama impressively hung on to its three slots from last year, subbing in Alan Cumming for Josh Charles in the always-crazy catch-all TV supporting actor race. The Good Wife is once again the only network show up for drama series, while Cummings' nomination is the fourth for an actor on the show. One question though: Why Cumming and not Matt Czuchry?

Allison Janney: Sometimes the Globes have to play catch-up too. (See: Finally giving Breaking Bad its first wins last year.) Though she has six Emmys, Janney has never won a Golden Globe (she went 0-for-4 for The West Wing) and Mom got zero Globe nods last year.

The best TV shows of 2014

See you next year... not!: If the SAGs are Stage 5 clingers, the HFPA are fickle pickles. They're not afraid to drop you like a bad habit even if you won last year. Three defending Globes champs were shown the door: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Andy Samberg and Amy Poehler, who, of course, is co-hosting again. Who'll make out with Bono now?

Last year's It girls are so last year: After being the first high-profile body to nominate Tatiana Maslany, the Orphan Black star failed to make the drama actress cut this time, a day after receiving a SAG nomination. Meanwhile, like at the SAGs, Viola Davis "took" Kerry Washington's Shondaland spot. Maybe one day there'll be room for both.

Julia Roberts: An eight-time nominee and three-time winner, Roberts was thought to be a shoo-in, not just for a nomination but the win, for The Normal Heart since A) it's a bait-y turn and B) the Globes worships A-list stars (these are the people who nominated her for Duplicity). Alas, she's nowhere to be found.

Veep: It's official: The Globes don't like Veep. The biting satire has never received a comedy series nomination, let alone a win for Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who's on her third nomination. They might eventually come around to it like they did with Breaking Bad... or they'll snub it forever like they did Will & Grace, which went 0-for-27 at the Globes.

Modern Family: For those of you suffering from ModFam fatigue, the HFPA must be your new BFFs. This is the first time since the show's inception five years ago that it failed to earn a single nomination. Lest we forget, Modern Family led the SAG nods. Also sitting out in the cold: TV's biggest comedy The Big Bang Theory, a three-time nominee, and Jim Parsons, a two-time winner.
