Golden Globe Nominations Announced!

Globe

Welcome back, my award season fanatics! It is officially that time of year: when we get up at ungodly times on a weekday to see the announcement of the Golden Globe/SAG/Oscar nominations.  The award season for the films of 2018 got off to a start with Thursday’s announcement of the Golden Globe nominations.

Vice

Vice, Adam McKay’s semi-true story about Dick Chaney and his relationship with George W. Bush, received at total of six nominations, the most of any film this year.  It received nominations for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy,  Best Actor in a Motion Picture –  Musical or Comedy (Christian Bale), Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture (Sam Rockwell), Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture (Amy Adams), Best Director (Adam McKay), and Best Screenplay (Adam McKay).

Three films received five nominations apiece: A Star is Born, Green Book, and The Favourite.  Each film was nominated in the Best Motion Picture category (Star as a Drama, and Green Book and The Favourite as Musical or Comedy).  Each film also garnered multiple acting nominations: Bradly Cooper and Lady Gaga for A Star is Born, Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali for Green Book, and Olivia Coleman, Emma Stone, and Rachel Wietz for The Favourite.

Asians

While the Academy Awards have been plagued in the past few years with a lack of diversity in its nominees, the Golden Globes has not had those problems.  This year, several films featuring mostly minority casts were nominated for Best Motion Picture and in several of the acting categories.  The critically acclaimed superhero film Black Panther was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Drama.  Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman picked up nominations for Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama (John David Washington).  Barry Jenkins’s If Beale Street Could Talk also picked up a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture (Regina King).  King was also nominated for Best Actress in a Limited Series or Television Movie for her work in Seven Seconds.  Crazy Rich Asians was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.  Constance Wu is the first Asian actress to be nominated in the Best Actress Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy category in more than 40 years.  If she takes home the prize, she will be the first Asian actress to do so.

So, what do you think of the nominations?  Are you surprised/bemused/irrationally angry/indifferent about the nominations?  Let us know on Twitter or Facebook.

The Golden Globes will be announced on January 6, 2019.
