The Golden Globes is catching flack for snubbing “When They See Us.”
On Monday, Dec. 9, 2019, representatives announced nominations for the award ceremony, which will honor the top films and TV programs of 2019, and Ava DuVernay’s four-part Netflix miniseries was nowhere among them.
Although the film garnered several Emmy Awards, fans are upset that it was snubbed by the Golden Globes.

also im sure many people and much more qualified people than me said this already, but #WhenTheySeeUs being completely left out is just as outrageous

@goldenglobes way to show how racist you are, can be, and continue to be by shutting out all of the amazing work that People of color have written, performed, directed and produced. #GoldenGlobes #WhenTheySeeUs

I am astonished & complete annoyed at the fact that #WhenTheySeeUs was not nominated for a single Golden Globe this year. @ava created something so amazing out of pain and untold truth! @JharrelJerome should atleast been nominated.
I’m over the HFPA! #GoldenGlobesNominations
