Yellowstone season 4: Fans vent fury as show snubbed by Golden Globes ‘Long overdue’
Yellowstone: Kayce and Monica clash over his job
Awards season is ramping up once again, with a fresh slate of Golden Globe nominations being announced this week. Fans of Taylor Sheridan’s acclaimed drama Yellowstone were disappointed once again when Paramount’s flagship Western series failed to get recognised in a single category.
Paramount’s hit cable series Yellowstone is once again missing from this year’s list of Golden Globe nominations.
The award contenders were announced Wednesday, February 3 by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) ahead of the Globes’ ceremony on February 28 and contained several major upsets.
Despite the film and television industries being hit hard by the ongoing health crisis, there were nevertheless some absolutely stellar outings on the small screen last year.
Unfortunately, not every show can be nominated and Taylor Sheridan’s gritty family drama was snubbed yet again for its third season.

This includes missing out on nominations for Best Drama, as well as acting awards for series lead Kevin Costner and co-stars Kelly Reilly and Cole Hauser.
HFPA’s announcement caused a stir on social media when Yellowstone fans caught wind of yet another snubbing at this year’s awards.
One fan fumed on Twitter: “WTF, no nominations for Yellowstone? The Golden Globes are [a] f*****g joke.
“Best show I’ve ever seen (& it’s not close). Brilliant performances all around… Give them ALL the f*****g awards, goddammit!”
Another viewer said: “The fact that Yellowstone came up dry is laughable. What a joke the Golden Globes are at this point.”
Fans also rallied around Yellowstone last year when the series failed to pick up a single nomination at the Emmys.
Not only was the series passed over for its performances from the ensemble cast, Sheridan’s pedigree as a Hollywood screenwriter and director was somehow not enough to warrant any writing or technical awards.
This marks the third year running the series has failed to receive any considerable awards buzz, and it’s hoped the upcoming fourth season will break the trend.

One more fan wrote: “Will Yellowstone ever get a Golden Globes or Emmy’s nod? It’s LONG overdue.”
This year’s entry saw ranch owner John Dutton (played by Kevin Costner) face insurmountable odds to protect his land from a growing list of enemies.
Sheridan’s riveting drama built up to an earth-shattering finale, raising hopes that Yellowstone’s fourth season could be the first to break through the awards barrier.
Instead, Netflix’s fourth season of The Crown leads the TV race with a total of six nominations, including both Olivia Colman and Emma Corrin nominated for Best Actress.
As ever, the Globes continue to cause controversy with a number of snubs and upsets this year.
Many TV fans were hopeful the likes of I May Destroy You and Bridgerton would pick up awards.
Others were also surprised to see James Corden and Jared Leto nominated over Delroy Lindo (Da Five Bloods) and Zendaya (Malcolm & Marie).
Meanwhile, both Emily In Paris and Ratched were both recognised by the Globes, despite receiving a questionable reception from viewers and critics alike last year.
Yellowstone will return with season 4 in 2021 on Paramount.
