Stranger Things (2016– )
For the first year since its premiere, Veep got entirely shut out of Golden Globe nominations during Monday’s announcement of the 2018 honorees. It was a shocking snub considering star Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home her sixth consecutive Emmy for the role in September, and as her character’s political career plummets, the scripts soar. In fact, the HBO comedy has never won a Globe.
Here are more snubs and surprises from the list.

Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” and Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” led noms on the movie front. On the TV side, HBO’s “Big Little Lies” picked up six nominations, while FX’s “Feud: Bette and Joan” followed with four. Meanwhile, “Fargo,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and “This Is Us” all landed three nods.
Presenters Alfre Woodard, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Bell, and Sharon Stone were joined by Golden Globe ambassador Simone Garcia Johnson, Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Meher Tatna, and Dick Clark Productions executive vice president of television Barry Adelman in revealing the nominees.
Seth Meyers will emcee the 2018 ceremony from the same location on Jan. 7. The Golden Globes will air live at 5 p.m. Pt/8 p.
FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan followed with four nods, while Fargo, The Handmaid’s Tale and This Is Us netted three each. On the TV comedy front, a half-dozen shows picked up two nominations each, resulting in no frontrunner.
By outlet, HBO dominated with 12 total nominations, followed by Netflix’s nine and FX’s eight. NBC and Showtime each tallied five.
The “Big Little Lies” nomination haul comes just days after HBO confirmed that a second season of the show is now in the works. Behind it is FX’s “Feud: Bette & Joan,” which has four nods; then Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” NBC’s “This Is Us,” and FX’s “Fargo,” with three apiece. Beyond that, the Hollywood Foreign Press spread the nomination love around, with many of TV’s most acclaimed shows receiving just one or two nominations. It’s the end result of the Peak TV era: With such a robust and eclectic offering of scripted TV shows from multiple outlets, HFPA voters opted to honor as many shows as possible.

Shout out to the UK subscriber who watched Bee Movie 357 times this year. Your dedication has been duly noted by Netflix...
Bee Movie, the 2007 animated meme generator, has a very committed UK fan. Someone so enamoured by the adventures of Barry B. Benson, that in 2017 they were willing to spend 32,487 minutes of their time rewatching the film on Netflix.
Netflix, for their part, did not want this devotion to go unsung, so this week they specifically acknowledged the bee-witched viewer and created a little buzz (I'm sorry) surrounding the, er, achievement, by including the factoid in their 2017 'Year In Review'.
The Jerry Seinfeld-starring flick could have been consumed once a day, or for almost 24 days continuously. No one knows, as the streaming giant are naturally keeping the person's identity anonymous, and further details under wraps.
Oh, and Netflix also released a bunch of Top 10 lists, but
“Superhero movies are the mythos of modern America,” said the Stranger Things star. “The ancient Greeks had Agamemnon, Achilles, and Cressida, and we have Captain America, Iron Man, and Superman. They are mythos, so I wanted to be involved in that conversation. These movies have been of a certain brand. With Deadpool and Logan, they are trying to do different things. So we are trying to do our own brand of that. I was really excited by that concept — to make a real monster movie that’s dark and scary and about the end of the world.”

Sarah Hyland and boyfriend Wells Adams got into the holiday spirit on Saturday, picking out their very first Christmas tree as a couple.
The Modern Family star shared a selfie of the two in front of the evergreen, appropriately adding tree and heart emojis to her caption. In the pic, Hyland is wearing her chocolate brown locks wavy, plus a cream-hued coat and her fave pair of clear glasses, while Adams flashes a shy smile, looking cool in a black leather jacket.
The pair didn't waste any time decorating once they got home, playing Elf in the background as they loaded the branches up with food-themed ornaments, including ketchup, a pizza, a martini and his-and-her themed beer and wine glasses, then topped it off with a Stranger Things "Christmas Star."
