9 TV shows that don't deserve their Golden Globe nominations this year — sorry

INSIDER Logo By Janaki Jitchotvisut of INSIDER | Slide 1 of 10: 
  
    "The Bodyguard" had some fine
    performances, but its tone-deaf Islamophobia is way over the
    top.
  

  
    "Dirty John" didn't show Connie
    Britton at her best. 
  
  
    Nominating "The Alienist" could
    perhaps be a make-up nomination for snubbing far superior
    serial killer series "Mindhunter" in 2017.
  
  
    Multiple nominations for
    outstanding actors in the same series - when it's deserved -
    should absolutely be a thing.
  

  The Golden Globe nominations
  always pack a few surprises, either in what's nominated or what
  isn't. Of particular frustration is always a show or movie with a
  strong ensemble cast: How do you nominate only one actor or
  actress when they're all fantastic?

  Here are some of the TV, limited
  series, and "motion picture made for television" 
  nominations
  that left us with
  questions.
