Three of his films are nominated, but Domhnall Gleeson still wasn't invited to the Golden Globes

He's enjoyed breakout roles in some of the biggest films of the year, but A-list status apparently doesn't guarantee an invite to the Golden Globes.
Actor Domhnall Gleeson won't be joining the Irish contingent at this year's ceremony, despite two of his films being nominated across a number of categories, as he said he wasn't invited.
The 32-year-old was appearing on US talk show Today with Will Poulter when they were asked if he was attending Sunday's precursor to the Oscars, when Poulter responded: "I don't think so... Potentially."
Gleeson then said: "The deathly silence suggests that maybe we haven't been invited! Thank you for bringing it up! We're not gonna be at the Golden Globes. We're gonna watch at home!"
In the last 12 months, the Dubliner featured in The Revenant (Best Picture; Best Actor; Best Original Score) and Brooklyn, for which co-star Saoirse Ronan has been nominated in the Best Actress category and Ex Machina, where co-star Alicia Vikander received the Best Supporting Actress nod.
Oh, and he also landed role of villain General Hux in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is set to overtake Avatar as the highest grossing film ever.
So it's easy to understand why he'd be overlooked.
