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.
When They See Us has been completely shut out of the Golden Globes this year, can someone explain what the heck has happened

Why is our greatest not enough? WHEN THEY SEE US was easily the best mini-series this year, in the year of goddamn Chernobyl. We could have celebrated both. I'm calling for an investigation. pic.twitter.com/ro5RTFVpYe

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.
.@goldenglobes are y’all ok?? The HFPA just wholly snubbed ‘When They See Us’ — not even giving its Emmy-winning actor a nomination. I am confusion.

jharrel jerome literally won an emmy for his performance in when they see us and yet the golden globes don’t even give him a 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.
Ugh, I woke up for the #GoldenGlobe nominations and am disappointed.
No Lupita Nyong'o, no 'When They See Us', no Florence Pugh, no women directors nominated…? I just…

These Golden Globes nods are atrocious. Big Little Lies S2 didn’t touch When They See Us or Euphoria and we can fight about that. #GoldenGlobesSoWhite
