The Golden Globe nominations – long considered an indication of which stars will shine on Oscar night – are in, and while there are a many expected names on the list (Natalie Portman, James Franco, Glee, to name a few), several stars, T.V. shows and movies didn't score a single nod.

Leonardo DiCaprio
Inception is not only up for best picture, but its director, Christopher Nolan, scored a nod for best director. And yet the film's star – who has been up seven times for a Golden Globe, winning once in 2004 for The Aviator – is absent from the list.

Justin Timberlake
His scene-stealing performance in The Social Network has left the singer-turned-actor with Oscar buzz. But were those whisperings of an Academy Award nod premature? Timberlake is left without any recognition, while The Social Network is up for best picture, star Jesse Eisenberg is up for best actor and Andrew Garfield is up for best supporting actor.

The end of arguably one of the biggest pop culture events of the past few years, and it goes out with a whimper – where the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is concerned.

True Grit
Okay, we get that the movie isn't out yet. But it's Joel and Ethan Coen! It's Jeff Bridges (who won last year)! It's Matt Damon! And it's long been considered a top contender for awards-season love.

True Blood
Sookeh, I am a vampire ... without nominations! While HBO's campy vamp show was up for best drama (and show star Anna Paquin scored a best actress nod) last year, the HFPA decided to stake the show this year.
