Not everyone is convinced about the '13 Reason Why' star's nomination.

Congratulations are in order for 13 Reasons Why star, Katherine Langford. Katherine, 21, has been nominated for a Golden Globe in the category of Best Actress in a Television Series Drama for her role as Hannah Baker.

Prior to starring in 13 Reasons Why, Katherine appeared in a handful of independent films but her Netflix debut has been her biggest role to date.

Katherine was the only actor from the show to be nominated for a Golden Globe, but that didn't stop her co-stars from congratulating her on the huge honour.

13 Reasons Why is Katherine's biggest role to date and she is nominated in a category full of outstanding performers. Maggie Gyllenhaal, Claire Foy, Elisabeth Moss, and Caitriona Balfe are the ones to beat if Katherine hopes to take home her first Golden Globe win at such a young age.

13 Reasons Why was snubbed at this year's Emmy Awards, so Katherine's nomination is a big one for the show. Katherine released a statement saying:

“Words can not express my sheer excitement and gratitude for being nominated by the HFPA this morning for portraying ‘Hannah Baker,’ a young woman whom I have come to truly love and understand. Hannah’s story resonated with so many people, and I feel truly grateful to Netflix, Paramount TV, Brian Yorkey, Tom McCarthy, Selena Gomez, and all of our tremendous producers…and to our incredibly talented cast – who are also my dear friends, and our wonderful crew for bringing this story to life."

Fans took to Twitter to congratulate Katherine on her nomination.

But the nomination definitely had people divided.

Millie Bobby Brown and Emilia Clarke were conspicuously missing from the category. There were also veteran actresses who realistically should have been nominated, like Viola Davis and Winona Ryder.

Women have killed it in film and television this year so it was pretty much guaranteed this category would be packed with talent and inevitably leave out some much deserved performances. We can't say who "deserved" the nomination most, but what do you guys think?

Which stand out performance of the year deserves Best Actress accolades at the Golden Globes?
