Golden Globe 2020 Nominations Released

Since we’re kicking into high gear into award season, they announced the nominations for the 77th Golden Globe Awards this morning. A lot of the times, this award ceremony that’s held by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is very hit or miss, depending on who’s winning and who’s not nominated, or when Ricky Gervais is hosting. For me, it’s always a mixed affair. How does it look this year? About the same.

With talking about the nominations, it looks like Marriage Story takes the lead with six nominations, followed by Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and The Irishman with five. It’s nice to see Once Upon a Time in Hollywood getting more love now than when it first came out in the summer.

From the television circuit, it looks like Chernobyl, The Crown, and Unbelievable each lead the most nominations with four. Then we have Barry, Big Little Lies, Fleabag, Fosse/Verdon, The Kominsky Method, The Morning Show, and Succession all with three nods apiece.

There were some surprises that most might enjoy, including myself. Knives Out earned itself three nominations including Best Motion Picture- Musical or Comedy, Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas for Best Performance by an Actor and Actress, respectively. The Farewell and Awkwafina both nominated, and Joe Pesci getting a Best Supporting Actor nomination for The Irishman. The biggest one that will get mixed feelings is Todd Phillips up for Best Director for Joker, which I’m fine with because I loved the film.

But there were some snubbed that took place that’s a bit of a head-scratcher. Where’s Robert De Niro? Or Noah Baumbach for Best Director? Not even his partner Greta Gerwig for Little Women (the second time she’s left out of the directing category once again)?

On the television side of all things, Zendaya for best career-defining performance on HBO’s Euphoria. That’s stupid. We all know the last season of Game of Thrones was very mixed, but did it deserve only one nomination (Kit Harington)? Was it because everybody hated that it won Best Drama at the Emmys? And I never got the chance to watch When They See Us, but fans of the Ava DuVernay’s well-received miniseries on Netflix aren’t happy that it’s seen nowhere.

Also, how did The Lion King score two nominations? “Spirit” was a new song made for the movie that nobody remembered, and the fact that it got nominated for Best Animated Feature Film makes little sense since I believe it shouldn’t be labeled as an animated movie!

Last year’s ceremony was just annoying when people rose in furious anger about the fact that Bohemian Rhapsody won Best Motion Picture- Drama and Green Book won Best Motion Picture- Musical or Comedy, the latter ended up winning Best Picture at the Oscars.
