On Monday [December 12th], the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards nominations were finally revealed. Denzel Washington, Kerry Washington, and Issa Rae with her grand debut to network television, have all earned Golden Globe nominations in the Best Performance category. While Atlanta and Black-ish earned Golden Globe nominations for Best Television Series.
On the contrary, one very deserving television series fell short, yet again, of the Golden Globe board’s criteria for commendable nominees. A fan favorite indeed, Power is going into it’s fourth season as Starz highest rated show on the network and the second most watched show on premium cable in 2016. Somehow, those statistics still don’t deem worthy enough for a Golden Globe nomination in any of the various categories presented.
Of course, 50 Cent didn’t take it lightly and wasn’t going to keep quiet about his disappointment. After the nominations were announced, 50 Cent took to Instagram to share his sentiments about the situation. 50 stated:
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
In another Instagram post 50 Cent went on to announce his exit from the very show he executive produces and stars in simultaneously, and how he would be passing the torch to his good friend, Floyd Mayweather. He stated:
Since the sudden announcement, Mayweather has yet to confirm anything publicly on his end. Nonetheless, we saw Mayweather co-sign 50 Cent’s statement as he commented under the Instagram post stating, “50, I’ll be waiting for her call. Money, POWER, Respect!”
50 replied, “Money, POWER, Respect, they do what they can. We do what we want.”
We’re all wondering will 50 really choose to kill off Kanan during Season 4 or on second thought, will 50 Cent just use all of this Hollywood drama as fuel to the fire to keep creating one of the best shows premium cable television has ever seen.
