Even though the Hollywood Foreign Press Association does not have a broadcast partner for the 79th Golden Globe Awards, the controversial group still announced their nominees, and Succession fans who paid attention were disappointed. The critically acclaimed HBO show won more nominations than any other show with five, but Matthew Macfayden still missed a nod. It was particularly disappointing, especially since the nominations were announced hours after the completely shocking Season 3 finale aired.
Succession landed five nominations, including Best Drama Television Series. Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong were both nominated for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, while Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook were nominated in the Supporting Actor and Actress categories, respectively. Although the HFPA divides the categories for main performances by genre, they don’t do the same for actor and supporting actress, which could explain why Macfayden was not nominated.
Macfayden plays Tom Wambsgans, the husband of Snook’s Shiv Roy. Tom is often left out of the Roy family’s machinations, despite his best efforts to be a significant part of Waystar RoyCo. When he’s not trying to figure out if he can avoid jail, he torments Roy’s cousin Greg Hirsch (Nicholas Braun).
No Matthew Macfadyen ?! Shame. #Golden globes

In the Season 3 finale, Tom made an amazing move that had a major impact on Logan Roy’s children, including Shiv. Macfayden, who has shown incredible skill in transforming his British accent into an American accent, was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series last year.
“Matthew Macfayden wasn’t even nominated?” “
So happy with kieran culkin though

Although NBC will not be showing the Golden Globes, the HFPA is still planning to host a ceremony on January 9, even though no broadcast partner is found. NBC announced in May that it would not air the awards show in support of a boycott of the HFPA, which has been criticized for years for the lack of diversity among its members. It’s still unclear whether the studios and nominees will continue the boycott by avoiding references to the Globes in award campaigns.
