Hollywood Foreign Press Announces Nominees for 78th Annual Golden Globes

-

GoldenGlobeLogoIt was a morning full of anger, outrage and general stupor on social media from critics and armchair awards analysts as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the nominations for its 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which will be handed out February 28 via a telecast awards ceremony that will air on NBC.

Granted, the HFPA is made up of international journalists residing in the Hollywood region and not film critics necessarily nor anyone who actually works in the industry as far as making movies or television, but the group’s awards still hold quite a bit of weight with consumers. If nothing else, one can use the Golden Globe nominations to see what a group of roughly 90 people felt was the best of 2020. (As well as more than a few movies that will still get released before the group’s Feb. 28 movie cut-off.)

Probably the biggest takeaway is that 2020 was a good year for movies directed by women as three women were nominated in the directing category compared to the many, many years when the category was all men. Regina KingEmerald Fennell and Chloé Zhao add to the number of women Golden Globe directing nominees, which still is only eight total in the awards’ 78-year history.

In fact, Fennell’s nomination was part of a fairly big boost of support by the group for her film Promising Young Woman. In many ways you can determine the Golden Globe favorites more from the director and screenplay nominations than anything else, since four of the Best Motion Picture – Drama nominees were also nominated in both those categories. While King was nominated for her direction, One Night in Miami‘s screenwriter Kemp Powers did not receive a nomination. As in the past, the Comedy/Musical film categories were all over the map, including a little-seen IMAX release called Music, which received a Golden Globe nomination as did its star, Kate Hudson. That movie is directed by pop singer Sia.

Then there were the television awards where Netflix and HBO dominated as usual, but one can look for Pop TV’s breakout comedy Schitt’s Creek to dominate in the television musical-comedy categories, since like at the Emmys, all four main actors received Golden Globe nominations. In general, Netflix dominated the Golden Globes with a nominee in almost every single category.
