It's widely known that the Golden Globes nominating committee, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, puts forward some strange contenders -- Johnny Depp for Best Actor in "The Tourist" and "Alice In Wonderland" for Best Picture in 2010 -- and this year is no exception.

Notably, how can two "Django Unchained" actors (Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz) be nominated without giving the lead actor, Jamie Foxx, his due? All three were terrific, so the decision-making on that one seems a bit questionable.

Thankfully the committee also bestowed some pleasant surprises. This year, under-the-radar films including "Salmon Fishing In The Yemen" and "The Deep Blue Sea" got nods, while brilliant performances that not many people have seen (like Jack Black in "Bernie") are also getting some attention.

Here is our list of notable snubs and surprises from this year's Golden Globe nominations:
