— -- This year's Golden Globes nominations spread the love around, but there were still plenty of high-profile names that failed to make the list.

Announced this morning, nominees for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards were dominated by acclaimed TV shows "The Handmaid's Tale," "Big Little Lies" and "Feud: Bette and Joan," along with newcomer "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and rebooted "Will & Grace."

On the film side, Oscar-buzzy films "The Shape of Water," "The Post," "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," "I, Tonya" and "Lady Bird" received multiple nominations.

The Golden Globe Awards, this year hosted by Seth Meyers, will air live Jan. 7, 2018, from the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Here are some of the snubs and surprises from the latest crop of nominees:

Daniel Kaluuya, as Chris Washington, in a scene from "Get Out."

Jordan Peele

Peele's blockbuster horror-satire "Get Out" earned nods for best motion picture, musical or comedy and star Daniel Kaluuya for best performance, but Peele himself was left out for best screenplay and director.

Greta Gerwig

Similarly, Gerwig, who directed indie favorite "Lady Bird," failed to make the list even while her film earned multiple nominations for best motion picture, musical or comedy and stars Saoirse Ronan for best performance and Laurie Metcalf for best performance in a supporting role.

Tiffany Haddish

Haddish made history last month as the first black female stand-up comedian to host "Saturday Night Live" and is having a banner year after her breakout role in the summer hit "Girls Trip," but she will not end the year with a Globe nomination.

Christopher Plummer

The 87-year-old actor earned a surprise nomination for best performance in a supporting role for his work in "All the Money in the World," after he replaced disgraced star Kevin Spacey in the film just last month. The film's director, Ridley Scott, a Globe favorite, also earned a nod for his quick rework of the film, which is still on for a Christmas Day release.

Oprah Winfrey

This year's Globe nominations followed the Emmys, doling out nods to Emmy winners "Big Little Lies" and "The Handmaid's Tale" and similarly snubbing Oprah Winfrey for her role in HBO's "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks."

Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Perennial Emmy and Globe favorites Julia Louis-Dreyfus and her hit HBO show "Veep" were also shut out this year.

'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel'

But the new Amazon show "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" did score nods for best TV series, comedy, and star Rachel Brosnahan for best performance, in keeping with Globe voters’ love for shiny, new things.

'Big Sick'

Although the Judd Apatow-produced comedy did well at this year's Gotham Awards, it failed to sway Globe voters, not even earning a nod for Kumail Nanjiani and his real-life wife, Emily V. Gordon, for their script.

'Wonder Woman'

Also shut out was one of the top-grossing films of the year, "Wonder Woman." Recently named to AFI's list of 10 best films of the year, it failed to earn a nod even for star Gal Gadot or director Patty Jenkins.
