Fans on Twitter are calling out the Golden Globes for snubbing “When They See Us” after the Netflix limited series didn’t garner a single nomination for the 2020 awards show.

The nominations were announced in Los Angeles on Monday at 8 a.m. ET, and included nods to shows like “The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel” and “The Politician” but not “When They See Us.”

Netflix’s limited series focuses on the real-life case of the Exonerated Five (formerly called the Central Park Five), a group of black and Latino teenage boys who were arrested, charged, and imprisoned for a crime they didn’t commit.

Fans were angry that the show, with its moving, relevant message and skilled actors, was snubbed.

Others pointed out that actor Jharrel Jerome received an Emmy award for his masterful performance on the show, but still wasn’t able to garner a Golden Globe nomination.

And some even called out the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (the group responsible for the nominations) for snubbing both people of colour and women entirely.

The Golden Globes will air live on NBC on January 5 at 8 p.m. ET.
