December 12, 2017 - 6:30am Updated: December 14, 2017 - 9:50am

Awards season is here! On Monday, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced their nominees for this year's 75th annual Golden Globe Awards, an event that honors the year's best in television and film.

The five networks with the most nominations are HBO, with 12; Netflix, with 9; FX, with 8; NBC, with 5 and Showtime, with 5.

  • As far as individual honors go for film, Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water earned the most with seven nods, while The Post - which lands in theaters Dec. 22 - and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri tied for second with six nominations. Lady Bird followed with four total, while Call Me By Your Name, The Greatest Showman, All the Money in the World, Dunkirk, and I, Tonya each nabbed three.
  • For TV, HBO's Big Little Lies (which was just renewed for a second season), dominated with six, FX‘s Feud: Bette and Joan followed with four, with This Is Us, Fargo, and The Handmaid's Tale tying for third place with three nods each.

SNUBS AND SURPRISES

  • Among the most seriously snubbed show was Veep, the most lauded sitcom in several years, was shut out of nominations for the first time ever.
  • Wonder Woman was the biggest shocker though: despite being critically acclaimed and making serious banks, the feel-good Gal Gadot-starring and Patty Jenkins-helmed superhero flick got snubbed.
  • Observers and folks on social media were especially riled considering the current pro-woman moment going on in the culture. Several pointed to the fact that if there was ever a movie (made by and starring a woman) who exemplifies it, Wonder Woman is it.
  • Greta Gerwig was also overlooked for her work directing Lady Bird (which got plenty of other love, being nominated for Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Screenplay).
  • Girls Trip, starring Tiffany Haddish in a an epic, fan-fave, breakout role, was also overlooked.
  • Jake Gyllenhaal, who got raves for his role as Jeff Bauman in Stronger, was also ignored. The Meyerowitz Stories, helmed by Noah Baumbach and starring Dustin Hoffman (of recent sexual harassment infamy) was totally overlooked.
  • Some were also surprised that Beauty and the Beast, which grossed $1.2 billion got zero love.
  • The Golden Globes, hosted by Seth Meyers, will air January 7th, 2018 on NBC.
