The Golden Globes are Hilarious

On their face, award shows are preposterous. With the very best shows being watched by somewhere in the neighborhood of 17 million people, it is weird to establish some people as the best in the world at something that can't be quantified. Even one of the best comedians in the world recognizes how problematic award shows can be (while receiving an award no less). Nonetheless, twice a year, interested observers of television are going to get bent out of shape when the nominees are announced. This year's Golden Globes nominations produced no less consternation than usual. However, there is so much unintentional laughs generated by some of these nominations, that it is difficult to sort through them all. What omissions or inclusions should generate the most snarky laughter?
