It's Golden Globe time again! So who's in and who's out for next year's show? American Horror Story? Check! Game of Thrones? Double check! The Walking Dead? Radio silence.
This year, the Golden Globes pumped the TV categories with fresh blood. Shows like Homeland, The Killing and Revenge are just some of the newbies that made the list. American Horror Story received a nod for Best Drama and Best Supporting Actress for Jessica Lange, while Game of Thrones was also recognized for Best Drama as well as Best Supporting Actor for Peter Dinklage's performance as Tyrion Lannister.
So who's missing? Fringe! After its amazing third season, the sci-fi underdog was completely shut out of the awards. The same happened to The Walking Dead, which didn't receive any series or acting nominations. To be fair, the second season of the zombie drama has been nowhere near as good as the first. Its storyline has been stagnant and at times flat-out boring. Maybe they'll do better next year?
In terms of comedy, The Big Bang Theory's Johnny Galecki was nominated for Best Actor, while his co-star and Emmy winner Jim Parsons got nada. Speaking of nada, Community is missing in action again. Who says the third time's a charm?

Surprisingly, Harry Potter received nothing, which is strange, because its finale was epic!
