Hate to be that guy, but when looking into the most important stories going into last night's Golden Globes, I tried to warn you. I specifically looked at the chances Get Out had of walking out with a Globe (either for Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical or Best Actor, for Daniel Kaluuya), and warned you: "Don't be surprised if Get Out walks away empty handed..." Hell, even during the fiasco over the film being submitted in the Comedy/Musical categories instead of the Drama, I tried to tell you: "I don't give a fuck how "woke" the Golden Globes is; they aren't woke enough to give Get Out the Best Motion Picture, Drama award, no matter how much it deserves it."
Apparently, they aren't woke enough to give it the Globe for Best Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical, either, as Lady Bird beat Joran Peele's satire in the Best Motion Picture category, with James Franco taking home the Best Actor Globe. As expected, fans of the film that made 2017 the greatest year for horror weren't feeling that shut-out at all, and took to Twitter to speak on it.
So, wait, to be clear, “Get Out,” the film of the year that basically made the most money and stunned the critics, didn’t win a thing tonight? #goldenglobes— Trillary Crosley (@HillaryCrosley) January 8, 2018
Issa Rae & Get Out were robbed. Good night. #GoldenGlobes— Franchesca Ramsey (@chescaleigh) January 8, 2018
Many felt that Get Out losing to any of these white-led films felt like... the plot to Get Out.
Get Out not winning any golden globes is like a live version of Get Out unfolding in real time.— Marcella Arguello (@marcellacomedy) January 8, 2018
Others felt it was the submission of the film to the Comedy / Musical category that hindered its success.
1. Get Out should’ve been a Drama nominee.— Denizcan James (@MrFilmkritik) January 8, 2018
2. Get Out should’ve won over Three Billboards.#GoldenGlobes
the golden globes is complete bullshit and it’s not because st didn’t win. they put get out, a movie about racism in the comedy category when it isn’t even REMOTELY funny. not to mention that they claim to be against sexual abuse but then turn right back around and award abusers.— ella (@lucasncIair) January 8, 2018
After watching the #goldenglobes I’m left with two thoughts:— Stephanie Wash (@WashNews) January 8, 2018
Please stop nominating Denzel & not giving him the award. He’s salty. We’re all salty. Everybody’s salty.
Please do not nominate Get Out as a comedy ever again.
Hopefully, the Oscars are kinder to Get Out, Jordan Peele, and the entire movement.
I sincerely hope Get Out gets the recognition it so rightfully deserves at the Oscars. Jordan Peele deserves an Oscar. #GoldenGlobes— Denizcan James (@MrFilmkritik) January 8, 2018
