No Golden Globe Nomination For 'Killing Of A Sacred Deer"

"The Killing Of A Sacred Deer," filmed here in 2016 by Oscar-winning director Yorgos Lanthimos, didn't get any love from Hollywood Foreign Press Association Monday.

"Sacred Deer" was ignored by the 75th anniversary Golden Globe Award nominations released Monday – but star Nicole Kidman was nominated as a best actress in a limited series for HBO's "Big Little Lies."

At the Cannes Film Festival in May, Lanthimos and writer Efthymis Filippou shared the best screenplay award for "The Killing Of A Sacred Deer" with another film. Lanthimos also won the Academy Award in February for best original screenplay for "The Lobster."

Leading the Golden Globe film nominations were "The Shape of Water" (seven), and Steven Spielberg's "The Post" and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" (six each).

The most TV nominations went to HBO's "Big Little Lies" (six), followed by FX's "Feud: Bette and Joan" (four) and FX's "Fargo," Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale" and NBC's "This Is Us" (three).

Here's a list of all nominees. 

"Sacred Deer," which had a Cincinnati premiere Oct. 26, is a psychological thriller about surgeon (Coin Farrell) and a sinister teen. The film had a national release Nov. 3, making it eligible for Academy Awards and Golden Globe consideration. Academy Award nominations will be announced Tuesday, Jan. 23.

Seth Meyers hosts the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards Sunday Jan. 7 on NBC. Jimmy Kimmell hosts the Academy Awards Sunday, March 4 on ABC.
