"La La Land," with seven nominations, "Moonlight," with six and "Manchester by the Sea," with five nominations are film frontrunners. In TV, the heart-warming "This is Us" series scored more nominations than bloody, crowd favorite "Game of Thrones."

The biggest surprise? Multiple nods for comic book underdog movie "Deadpool."

The Golden Globes nominations haven't been as wildly surprising in recent years as they were in that one year, when “The Tourist” and “Burlesque” were named two of the best comedy/musicals of the season.

Still, when nominations were announced from the Beverly Hilton on Monday morning, there were plenty of surprises.

They included Jonah Hill in a movie not many people saw, Viggo Mortensen in a movie even fewer people saw and plenty of love for “Deadpool,” which at least was a movie a lot of people saw.

Here are six of the bigger snubs and surprises from the film side of the Golden Globes ledger.
