But no one was more upset than 50 Cent, who made his frustrations loud and clear after his Starz series Power scored zero nominations.
The rapper and actor took to Instagram to slam the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for omitting his hit drama, which recently wrapped its third season — and hinted that the lack of award show accolades would cause him to leave the program altogether!
On Monday, he wrote:
“Golden globe’s can suck a d*ck. I accept my series POWER was not intended to be a signature show for the network but it is the highest rated show. I know my audience very well, I’m done promoting this out side of contractual obligations. SEASON 4 KANAN MUST DIE, I got other sh*t to do.”
Wow! It’s not too often actors are HOPING to get killed off their shows….
3.37 million people tuned into Power‘s Season 3 premiere, making it the most watched episode in the premium cable network’s history — but the Candy Shop rapper is upset these high ratings didn’t translate to award show recognition.
So upset, apparently, the 41-year-old claimed (joked?) boxing champ Floyd Mayweather would be replacing him, saying on IG:
“I’m off the POWER train, champ is gonna do the show. Go to him for more info, I gotta do something different.”
Better audition for one of the award show darlings like Game Of Thrones, Curtis!
A spokesperson for Starz spoke to Variety about the snub, saying:
“We are grateful for the excellent work being done on Power by the producers, cast and crew. We certainly think this exceptional show has been overlooked by various awards committees, but the fans have made it the second most watched show on premium cable in 2016├óΓé¼┬ªand those are accolades that mean just as much if not more.”
Now that’s a professional response to not getting nominated! Take note, 50!!
Do YOU think Power was snubbed?? See his full post (below)!
I’m on the move again, Golden globe’s can suck a dick. I accept my series POWER was not intended to be a signature show for the network but it is the highest rated show. I know my audience very well, I’m done promoting this out side of contractual obligations. SEASON 4 KANAN MUST DIE, I got other shit to do. #EFFENVODKA
