14 Shocking Snubs from the 2019 Golden Globes Nominations
The 2019 Golden Globe nominations were announced on Thursday, December 6, highlighting the best in film and television over the past year. While predicted awards season leaders such as A Star Is Born and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel had strong showings, there were — as always — some surprising omissions, too.

Ted Danson: The Good Place finally found a well-earned a spot in the Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy category, and star Kristen Bell nabbed herself a place in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy category, but unfortunately, and surprisingly, the dazzling Ted Danson was left out of the race for best actor.

Maniac: Emma Stone earned a best supporting actress nomination for the period drama The Favourite, but she was excluded for what many saw as an outstanding performance in Netflix's Maniac. The show was also shut out of the limited series category. (Photo via Michele K. Short/Netflix)
Atlanta: Donald Glover earned a nomination in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Musical, or Comedy category, but Atlanta season 2 was shut out of the comedy series category, and costar Brian Tyree Henry, AKA Alfred "Paper Boi" Miles, was omitted from the supporting actor race.

Succession: The word-of-mouth hit HBO dramedy is due for an awards show breakout — but it won't happen at the 2019 Globes. Only Kieran Culkin earned a (well-deserved) supporting actor nomination for the compelling limited series. (Photo via Craig Blankenhorn/HBO)
Issa Rae: After back-to-back nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy — and despite shining in season 3 — the Insecure star missed out on a third consecutive nod this year. (Photo via Merie W. Wallace/HBO)
This Is Us: The NBC tearjerker has had strong representation at the Globes two years in a row, and even nabbed a win for Sterling K. Brown in 2018, but season 3 was a no-show on the HFPA's list of nominees. (Photo via NBCUniversal)
Patrick Melrose: The Showtime series was heavily favored for a nod in the limited series category, but other than an acting nom for star Benedict Cumberbatch, the show came up short. (Photo via Justin Downing/Showtime)
Widows: Steve McQueen's action drama seemed poised to deliver, at the very least, a best actress nomination for star Viola Davis, but it was shut out across the board. (Photo via Merrick Morton/Twentieth Century Fox)
Mary Queen of Scots: Despite early awards show buzz around the historical drama, Mary Queen of Scots had a quiet start to the season with no noms for the film or its stars Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie. (Photo via Liam Daniel/Focus Features)
If Beale Street Could Talk: Barry Jenkins' latest drama did earn nominations in several top categories, including Best Motion Picture, Drama, but Jenkins himself was snubbed in the best director race, and Nicholas Britell's absence from the best original score category is a notable upset.

A Quiet Place: Early awards season chatter had John Krasinski in the best director race, and Emily Blunt among the contenders for best actress, but A Quiet Place's only nomination at the Globes was for best original score. Perhaps the unconventional horror movie is too outside the awards institution's comfort zone after all. (Photo via Jonny Cournoyer/Paramount Pictures)
First Man: Claire Foy earned a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture, but otherwise, Damien Chazelle's Buzz Armstrong biopic was shut out — meaning no best actor nod for Ryan Gosling as the famous astronaut.

The Hate U Give: The powerful, timely film and its star, Amandla Stenberg, were sadly shut out at this year's Globes. (Photo via Erika Doss/Twentieth Century Fox)
The Haunting of Hill House: Netflix's surprise hit horror series didn't receive a single nomination, despite wide critical acclaim for both the show itself and the performances of its cast. (Photo via Steve Dietl/Netflix)
It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
