— -- Some Hollywood stars left out of Wednesday's Screen Actors Guild nominations got a nice surprise this morning when their names were announced during this year's Golden Globe nominations.

But for every surprise (Sylvester Stallone), there was an equal snub (Michael Keaton).

Nominees for the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning in 25 categories -- 14 in film and 11 in television. The awards will be handed out on Jan. 10 during the live broadcast hosted by Ricky Gervais.

Here's our list of snubs and surprises:

1. Blanchett vs. Mara

On the film side, "Carol" led the way with five nominations, and, in a surprise twist, stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara will go head-to-head in the best actress category. The Weinstein Company had been promoting Mara in the supporting actress category, even though she won the best actress award in Cannes for the same role. The Screen Actors Guild nominated her in the supporting category, but it looks like the Hollywood Foreign Press followed Cannes and gave her performance a best actress nod.

2. 'The Americans'

Despite being a critic's favorite, the FX series "The Americans," and its stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, were once again snubbed.

3. 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt'

Netflix comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" also got no love, despite being the brainchild of Globe favorite Tina Fey.

4. Johnny Depp

Another Globe favorite, Johnny Depp, was also overlooked for his spot-on role as Whitey Bulger in "Black Mass," which was also shut out. In the past, the Globes have recognized him for lesser work. Who can forget his nod for "The Tourist?"

5. Sylvester Stallone

At least screen veteran Sylvester Stallone, who was left out of Wednesday's SAG nominations, earned a spot in the best supporting category for reprising his role as Rocky Balboa in "Creed." Nearly four decades have passed since Stallone first received a Golden Globe nomination for his performance as Rocky.

6. Michael Keaton

While "Spotlight" received multiple nods, including best picture drama, the cast -- including Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams -- got bupkis.

7. Taraji P. Henson

Left out of the SAG nominations, "Empire" and its star Taraji P. Henson each picked up nods from the Globes.

8. 'Joy'

There was joy for David O. Russell's movie "Joy" and its star Jennifer Lawrence, who received nods after both were overlooked by the Screen Actors Guild. Other late-openers, like "Concussion" and "The Hateful Eight," also got love from the Globes. Will Smith received a best actor in a drama nod for his performance in "Concussion" and Tarantino's "Hateful Eight" earned two nominations, including one for screenplay.
