'American Horror Story: Coven,' 'Gravity' and 'Orphan Black' Grab Golden Globe Nominations

The nominees for the 71st Annual Golden Globes were just announced and there were not only some notable nods but also some snubs when it came to the broad realm of the paranormal.

We were especially excited to see that "American Horror Story: Coven" was not only nominated for "Best Miniseries or Television Movie" but also, Jessica Lange was nominated for her role as Fiona Goode in the "Best Actress, Television Movie or Mini-Series" category.

Hey wait! No mention of "The Walking Dead?" Where was "Game of Thrones?" No nomination for Peter Dinklage's "Tyrion Lannister" or David Morrissey's "Phil/Brian/Governor" role? Who else didn't or did make the list? Let's break this down further...

The category of science fiction was graced with three huge nominations for the blockbuster hit, "Gravity." Not only did the film (which has so far domestically grossed over $251 million), garner a "Best Motion Picture: Drama" nod but also a "Best Actress: Drama" nomination for Sandra Bullock and a "Best Director" nomination for Alfonso CuarĂ³n. Nothing for Clooney? He has plenty already, right?

Coldplay's "Atlas" from "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" grabbed a nomination for "Best Original Song." Katniss Everdeen herself, Jennifer Lawrence may not have received a nod for her role in "Catching Fire" but she did get one for her "American Hustle." She's up for "Best Supporting Actress in a Musical or Comedy." Also up for a Best Actor award thanks to "American Hustle," is the Dark Knight, Christian Bale.



Congrats also go out to Tatiana Maslany for her complicated role on BBC's "Orphan Black." Maslany is nominated for "Best Actress in a TV Series/Drama" for portraying "Sarah, Alison, Cosima, Katja, Beth and Helena." She should get six nominations! Season Two of "Orphan Black" returns April 19 at 9 p.m.

So who else was snubbed? Who do you think will win? Tune in to the Golden Globes, hosted by the dynamic duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, on NBC, January 12. For the complete list of nominees, click here.
