People Have Mixed Opinions About Katherine Langford Being Nominated For A Golden Globe
12 December 2017, 15:30
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.
Many congrats to Katherine Langford on her Golden Globe nom for 13 Reasons Why. Hannah is such an important character, and not an easy part to portray by any means. So deserved. 🍾 pic.twitter.com/0ufl8LytMF— Dylan Minnette (@dylanminnette) December 11, 2017
Congratulations to my cast mate Katherine Langford on her @goldenglobes nomination! You deserve it girl. Couldn’t be more happy for you— Brandon Larracuente (@BLarracuente) December 11, 2017
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.

katherine langford got a nomination but winona ryder didn't pic.twitter.com/Nuep0zMwH4— nicole (@chastaen) December 11, 2017
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?
