The Handmaid’s Tale: Fans dejected as series left out of Golden Globes 2021

The Handmaid’s Tale: Ann Dowd says Lydia has love for June

The Handmaid’s Tale has been one of the most popular TV shows around since it started all the way back in 2017. Besides viewers and critics loving it, the series has received many accolades over the years, including two Golden Globes for Best Actress and Best Drama. However this year, the programme seems to have failed to impress the Golden Globe bosses as it was omitted at today’s nomination announcements. 

The Golden Globes announced their nominees today during a virtual event hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P Henson.

Netflix stole the show with a total of 42 nominations across both film and TV. 

The Crown, Ratched, Hollywood, Ozark and Emily in Paris were all amongst the nominees for TV, while on the film front, Netflix put their best foot forward with Mank and The Trial of the Chicago 7. 

Disney+’s The Mandalorian and HBO’s Lovecraft Country were also nominated.

A posthumous nomination was given to Chadwick Boseman for this role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Colman also received multiple nominations.

After their success at the Emmy’s last year, Schitt’s Creek went home with five nominations.  

Disney+ Hamilton also surprised audiences getting a nomination for Best Picture in the Musical or Comedy category alongside a Best Actor shout-out for Lin-Manuel Miranda.

But one big show that everybody was looking forward to receiving some praise was The Handmaid’s Tale. 

Fans were left disappointed when the nominations ended and no category had a nomination for the Hulu show. 

“Wasn’t handmaid’s tale eligible for this year’s golden globes?” asked one puzzled fan on Twitter. 

Unfortunately, not for this year.

To be eligible for the 2021 edition of the Golden Globes, a show or film must have been released during the 2020 calendar year. 

While many viewers caught up on The Handmaid’s Tale during the 2020 lockdowns, no new season of the show was released last year, making it ineligible. 

Season four of the series was supposed to come out in autumn 2020, but the show had to interrupt production due to Covid-19 restrictions. 

However, in late January, Hulu released a trailer for the upcoming season which teased what viewers can expect and announced the show would return sometime in 2021. 

June Osbourne star Elisabeth Moss has promised the upcoming season of the dystopian drama will be well worth the wait. 

Speaking to Deadline, she revealed season four will kick straight into high gear when the eagerly anticipated premiere finally surfaces.

She went on: “I will say that the first half of this season is definitely bigger than we’ve ever done. It has been incredibly challenging.

“It has been, on a production level, really, really outside of our box, and it’s just bigger in every way.”

The Handmaid’s Tale is available to stream on Hulu in the USA and Amazon Prime Video in the UK now.
