In the world of entertainment awards, the Golden Globes are where you'll find the most TV shows that live and die by word of mouth. It's where you'll see the small screen establishment get upended and set ablaze while the new TV regime rises up and demands attention. That pattern of sorts continued with this morning's release of the 2017 Golden Globes nominations, and there were shocks galore oozing from the announcements. Here are the 5 biggest WTF elements of this year's honorees.

Stranger Things For Best Drama

We adore Stranger Things here at CinemaBlend, and as soon as that initial eight-episode season had come to a close, I knew that Netflix had delivered one of my favorite new series of all time. But I would have predicted this world would transform into the Upside Down before I'd have predicted any awards love raining down on Matt and Ross Duffer's genre-bending thriller. Horror and science fiction almost never play well where prestigious accolades are concerned, but Stranger Things now sits among the very best dramas of 2016, and it's absolutely deserving. Double the joy for Winona Ryder earning a Best Actress in a Drama nomination. Let's hope that Barb can come back to at least call out the nominations.
