Nominations for the 78th annual Golden Globes Awards were announced virtually Wednesday morning, a first in the show’s history. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return to host, also virtually, after hosting in 2013, 2014, and 2015. In the first of many bad decisions (more on that in a moment), the Globes will split up the pair with Fey hosting from New York and Poehler from Beverly Hills.

Among this year’s most outrageous snubs are I May Destroy You, the best series of 2020, Insecure, which gave us its best season yet, and Minari, only landing one nomination.
