The Mandalorian, Ozark & More: 2021 Golden Globes So-White TV Noms

While we are wise enough to know that Golden Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler don't need our help in any way, shape, or form when it comes to cracking jokes at this year's nominations or at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association overall. But we still have close to a month before the Sunday, February 28, ceremony on NBC so why wait until then? Looking over the acting nominations? They couldn't get any whiter been if you announced them in a snowstorm. I mean, the HFPA went white– like British "can't get a tan white." Like, if the HFPA could've nominated a glass of milk or Casper as the best picture this year, they would've. Sorry, but in a year when television pioneer Norman Lear receives the Carol Burnett Award for his lifetime of achievement in bringing diversity and real-life to our screens at a time when that just wasn't happening, the lack of diversity in the acting categories is a little obscene (but with full props to Don Cheadle for his Black Monday nom). But I May Destroy You being shut out? No love for the Lovecraft Country leads? And while we weren't the biggest fan of the limited series, there's no denying that Uzo Aduba stood out in an ensemble of stand-outs in Mrs. America. So we'll just put this out there: #GGSoWhite- now here are your Golden Globes nominees:
