This year’s Golden Globe nominations are as polarizing as they typically are, with Vice, the Dick Cheney biopic starring a transformed Christian Bale leading the pack with six nominations.
Its followed closely by frontrunners A Star is Born, The Favourite and Green Book, all of which picked up five nominations each.
When it comes to television, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story leads with four nominations, while Sharp Objects, Homecoming and The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel, along with four other series, picked up three each. ACS and Maisel dominated the Emmys earlier this year, and are expected to make a similar killing at this year’s ceremony.
Several surprises made their way onto the list this year, with Amazon’s underrated A Very English Scandal picking up a nod for star Hugh Grant and Mary Poppins Returns made a splash despite also having yet to debut. Eighth Grade‘s young lead Elsie Fisher also picked up a nomination, as did Constance Wu for Crazy Rich Asians.
The snubs are the real talking point, however, with the much beloved Roma being shut out of the Best Picture – Drama category, having been replaced by the critically panned Bohemian Rhapsody. It did pick up a Foreign-Language nod, though, thanks to .
And while he may have been the hardest working actor in Hollywood this year, Bryan Tyree Henry didn’t receive a single mention, along with Atlanta. In fact, Steve McQueen’s Widows, in which Henry co-starred this year, didn’t pick up any nominations, and that’s despite an A-list ensemble. The same goes for HBO’s family drama Succession, which has flown almost entirely under the radar, save a nomination for co-star Kieren Culkin.
