‘Carol,’ ‘The Danish Girl,’ ‘American Horror Story’ Score 2016 Golden Globe Nominations


Lovers of film and television, rejoice: the nominees for the 2016 Golden Globes are here, and they do not disappoint — mostly. Strong films like Carol , Room , and Mad Max: Fury Road all got well-deserved best dramatic feature noms, while old Globes favorite Ryan Murphy got a surprising amount of love for American Horror Story: Hotel and Scream Queens. Also worth noting is that Aziz Ansari received an acting nom for his great Master of None , but the show itself was not nominated. And, no, Elisabeth Moss was not nominated for her performance in the second half of Mad Men‘s final season. So maybe these weren’t mostly great, after all.

Check back to Flavorwire for more in-depth coverage of the nominees, but for now have a look at the full list below.

The ceremony, to be hosted by Ricky Gervais, will be held on January 10 in Los Angeles, and will air on NBC at 8 p.m.
