A Golden Globe snub doesn’t break someone’s Oscar campaign, but it does disrupt the momentum of a campaign ever so slightly. So when the full list of Golden Globe nominations were announced on Thursday morning, these 10 Academy Awards hopefuls probably were on the phone with their agents, handlers and Oscar-campaign advisors asking what the next step will be, because a lack of Globes nomination indicates a slight step backward.

Some of these are jaw-droppingly surprising. Some of these are understandable. But they ALL are snubs from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and I think it’s safe to say that the people listed below are more than a little disappointed. They’re probably flat-out pissed.

Black Mass
Johnny Depp
Is this the year Leonardo DiCaprio finally wins his Oscar? That’s one narrative swirling around the race for Best Actor, and the name we often hear as someone who can give Leo a run for his money is Johnny Depp in Black Mass. Except, you have to be in it to win it… and even though the Globes have 10 slots to recognize male performances, Depp didn’t get any of them. (OK, he had no shot at Comedy or Musical, but you get the point.) Team Black Mass has to push harder for Oscar recognition, because Eddie Redmayne, Bryan Cranston and even Will Smith got a bump this morning, and Depp – unfairly – was left out in the cold.
