Outlander Golden Globes

“Outlander” is all about Jamie and Claire, but the Golden Globes clearly appreciate Claire a little more. Actress Caitriona Balfe received her third Golden Globe nomination Monday while Sam Heughan was snubbed once again.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) only awarded Balfe with a nomination for best actress in a TV drama, and it looks like Heughan was watching the nominations. Just moments later, he hopped on Twitter to send a congratulatory message to his onscreen wife.

“Outlander,” a Starz series, follows a nurse from the 20th century, Claire Randall (Balfe), as she gets sent back in time to the 18th century Scotland and falls in love with a Highlander, Jamie Fraser (Heughan). Season 3 followed the couple as they spent 20 years without each other and finally reunited. The third season wrapped up on Sunday night, and Season 4 is already filming.

Heughan certainly wanted to be a nominee. As previously reported, the Scottish actor was signing some letters to send out to the HFPA last month.

To be fair, the best actor in a TV drama category has some intense competition. Sterling K. Brown from “This Is Us,” Bob Odenkirk from “Better Call Saul,” Liev Schreiber from “Ray Donovan,” Jason Bateman from “Ozark” and Freddie Highmore from “The Good Doctor” are the nominees.

Still, Heughan’s fans aren’t happy about the snub. They would’ve liked to see both of the Jamie and Claire actors get nominated for Golden Globes, and many fans believe “Outlander” deserves a slot in the best TV drama category as well. Audiences went to Twitter to vent about the snubs.

Showrunner Ronald D. Moore probably would have liked a few more nominations too, but he mentioned that it was difficult to predict how awards shows would vote. “You know, we’re always hopeful. You never know and a lot of it has to do with timing,” he told Deadline. “Now we’re on in the fall and we’ve been on at different other times of year before. So, I think that has a lot to do with what people are voting for what show, what happens to be on the air at that moment.”

“Outlander” will return to Starz in 2018. The Golden Globes air Sunday, Jan. 7 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
