The nominations for the 78th annual Golden Globe Awards are here. The Hollywood Foreign Press Associations picks for this year’s kudofest were revealed yesterday by Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P Henson on the “Today” show.
Netflix dominates in both fields with a total of 44 nominations, 20 of those in the TV categories.
“The Crown” has scored the most noms in TV with six, followed by fellow Netflix titles “Ozark” and “Ratched,” Disney-Plus’ “The Mandalorian,” and HBO’s “Lovecraft County.” “Schitt’s Creek” sweeped the Emmys, and is now doing the same with a nomination for Best Comedy as well as well as acting nods for stars Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy.
When it comes to the TV snubs and surprises…
- HBO’s “Lovecraft County” may have gotten a nod for Best Drama, but none of the cast is up for trophies, including Jurnee Smollett, Jonathan Majors, and Courtney B Vance.
- Like we said, streaming services lead the nominations… which means a big snub for major broadcast television networks in 2021. The only contender in the major categories is Jane Levy, star of NBC’s “Zoey Extraordinary Playlist.”
- This year, the Golden Globes made history by nominating three female directors: Chloe Zhao for “Nomadland,” Emerald Fennell for “Promising Young Woman,” and Regina King for “One Night In Miami.” Prior to this, only five female directors had gotten nods across more than seven decades: Barbara Streisad, Jane Campion. Kathryn Bigelow and Ava DuVeray.
The 78th annual Golden Globes happens on February 28th on NBC. This year, the kudofest will go bicoastal for the first time, with dynamic duo Amy Poehler and Tina Fey returning to host for the first time since 2015. Check out the nominations in major TV categories below, and the full list HERE.
