Another year, another round of Golden Globe nominations. The 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards will be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, January 6, as the main awards program once again honors the best in film and television. The nominee announcements were made today, January 3, in Beverly Hills, and some major names in film and television were recognized while others left empty-handed. Among the major snubs were veteran actor Michael Douglas, who starred in the critically acclaimed television series “The Kominsky Method”, and Toni Collette in the Netflix comedy “Hereditary.” The three nominations gave the critically acclaimed and highly-viewed series the critically-acclaimed actors, whose excellent performances in the show snubbed even Taraji P. Henson, for her role in the hit drama series, “Empire.”
This season has been one of the best yet for television. For female performers, Rachel Brosnahan was nominated for her role in the political comedy series, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”. Brosnahan was nominated for her role in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, and the Golden Globe is a top performance award which honors both actors and actresses. With an estimated 17 million viewers, the show received nominations for Best Comedy Series, as well as for the actors, Brosnahan and Alex Borstein for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. While Bosnian actress, Saira Bajwa was nominated for her role in the popular series, “Sacred Games”, however, she left empty-handed.
The superhero film, “Avengers: Infinity War”, was somewhat snubbed by the Golden Globe. While the film received multiple nominations including Best Motion Picture – Action for the actors Chris Hemsworth, Danai Gurira, and Robert Downey Jr., director Joe Russo, and co-writer and producer Anthony Russo, the Golden Globe nomination came with something of a surprise: two of the big four directors left behind were Ridley Scott and Barry Jenkins – both directors are responsible for major and critically-acclaimed films this year.
Other major nominees for this year’s Golden Globe Awards included, Robert De Niro for his controversial role in “The Mule”, Christian Bale for “Vice”, and Bradley Cooper for his lead role in “A Star Is Born”. Additionally, Regina King, who led the film “If Beale Street Could Talk”, received a nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role.
