In the film category, Taraji P. Henson’s dramatic turn as a NASA mathematician instrumental to the space race was passed over while co-star Octavia Spencer received a supporting actress nomination for the film.

Lena Headey nabbed a nomination as the villainous Cersei Lannister on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” but the resurrected Jon Snow, played by Kit Harrington, was apparently better off dead as his performance went unrecognized.

The Jan. 8 Golden Globes will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon and broadcast by NBC from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
