WATCH: The Golden Globe Awards Nominations Are In!

1. Johnny Depp (Black Mass): Despite being nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Awards for his transformative role as James "Whitey" Bulger, the 52-year-old actor was not nominated for a Golden Globe.'s Tom O'Neil suspects the snub might have more to do with the reception the movie received than Depp's individual performance. "I don't think they liked Black Mass," O'Neil told ET.

2. Tom Hanks (Bridge of Spies): The actors' race has been intensely competitive this year with Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Fassbender, Eddie Redmayne, Bryan Cranston and Will Smith getting much of the attention, but O'Neil believes that this Golden Globe nomination snub is simply part of a pattern for Hanks. "Tom Hanks has been shut out of these top awards for years now," O'Neil said.

3. Meryl Streep (Ricki and the Flash): With a record 29 Golden Globe nominations under her belt and eight wins, 2015 is shaping up to be that rare year when Streep does not earn a nomination for a top awards show.

4. Robert De Niro (The Intern): The musical/comedy category might not have had enough room to fit in both De Niro's performance and Al Pacino's role in Danny Collins. The nod went to the latter.

5. Elizabeth Banks (Love and Mercy): Paul Dano was able to eke out a nomination for his performance as a young Brian Wilson, but surprisingly, Banks wasn't able to do the same for playing his wife.
