We were pretty shocked that The Hollywood Foreign Press had no love for “True Blood’s” Season 3 in the Golden Globes 2011 nominations. The Zap2it obsession was neither nominated in the best drama category nor did any of the actors get a nomination.
The series was previously nominated for both Season 1 and 2. And Anna Paquin has been nominated twice, and took home a trophy. So, what’s up with the Season 3 snub?
Season 3 focused on some pretty heavy relationship stories between Sookie, Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and literally broke down the Vampire hierarchy in a brutal season-long battle. Plus, we’re always shocked that Nelsan Ellis‘ complete transformation into the bawdy Lafayette gets so little awards appreciation.
Not to mention, there were some great guest stars who acted their fang-ies off: James Frain as the love-starved stalker Franklin Mott? Denis O’Hare as the vampire king who loses it when his kingdom falls apart and his life partner is murdered by Eric?
Season 4 was continually spellbinding and let’s not forget why we tune in to TV in the first place: “True Blood” always entertains.
So, on behalf of HBO’s “True Blood,” we say to The Hollywood Foreign Press: Bite us!
