It’s that time of year again, when awards season rears its trophy-sized head and threatens to derail friendships faster than the 2016 election. (Okay, maybe it’s not that severe, but we get pretty serious about TV around here.) The nominations for this year’s Golden Globes are out, and with them comes celebration, aggravation and various levels of perplexity.

Here are the 5 biggest surprises that came from the small screen side of the nomination process. This isn’t about snubs, really, since we’ve already covered those, although I could rant and rave all day about Bloodline not getting nominated for Best TV Drama. This is more about what’s actually there. Now pardon me while I go watch a Coke commercial while you read this first one.

Jon Hamm, But No Mad Men
You couldn’t throw a rock across the Internet in 2015 without hitting a thinkpiece about the second half of the final season of Mad Men, one of the most critically lauded shows of all time. But you wouldn’t know that by looking at the Best Drama category, where Mad Men is most certainly absent. Sure, Jon Hamm got recognized for his work as the forever dapper Don Draper, but the rest of the ensemble was duly shut out, as this was the only category the show was nominated in. Should have had better advertising, I guess.
