Golden Globes

The list of nominations for the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards (of 2021), the yearly precursor to the Academy Awards, have just been announced today - you can find all the film nominees below. The infamous Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees this morning from a virtual event. The big ceremony takes place later this month, most likely with a Zoom telecast. The selection this year is as odd as always, yet the nominees are still considerably diverse. The best news is that they selected a total of three female filmmakers for Best Director - including Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman, Regina King for One Night in Miami, and Chloé Zhao for Nomadland. And there's plenty of other surprises - like Sacha Baron Cohen getting two noms, and more. Another odd year of picks but not that unexpected for the HFPA.

The 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday, February 28th, 2021 with an event hosted again by Tina Fey & Amy Poehler and a live broadcast on NBC. The full list of 2020's film nominees:

So there you have it. The nominees from 2020 for the Golden Globe awards. As always, the HFPA has made some odd picks this year and it's rather strange to see so many good AND bad films showing up in the nominations. Has anyone even seen Sia's Music yet? Is it any good? As for the rest of these, it IS great to see nominations for the Borat Subsequent Moviefilm sequel, Regina King's One Night in Miami, The Father, and even The Mauritanian (which hasn't opened yet either). But the HFPA is always convinced by publicity and showmanship more than they are quality, despite what they say. It happens year after year after year. Congrats to all of this year's nominees anyway.

What do you make of these 2021 Globes nominations?
