77th Golden Globe Nominations: ‘Joker,’ ‘1917,’ ‘Rocketman’ & ‘The Irishman’ Among Best Picture Nominees

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the nominations for the 77th Golden Globe Awards early Monday morning by Tim Allen, Dakota Fanning and Susan Kelechi. Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story” leads the board with six nominations including for Best Supporting Actress for Laura Dern, Best Actor for Adam Driver and Best Actress for Scarlett Johansson.

The Best Director category features nominations for Martin Scorsese, Bong Joon-Ho, Sam Mendes, Quentin Tarantino, and Todd Phillips. All but one have their feature film nominated for Best Picture in its respective category, due to “Parasite” being ineligible. The film did, however, make it into Best Foreign Language Film.

In Best Motion Picture- Drama, the films vying for the award this year are “1917,” “Joker,” “The Irishman,” “Marriage Story,” and “The Two Popes. Netflix takes up the majority space with three in that category. In Best Motion Picture- Comedy/Musical, audience favorites “Knives Out,” “Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood,” and “Dolemite Is My Name” make the cut, along with “Rocketman” and “Jojo Rabbit.”

Lupita Nyong’o, who has been making waves in several recent critic awards, was not nominated for her lead performance in Jordan Peele’s sophomore effort, “Us.” Out of the picture when it comes to Lead Actor is Robert De Niro, who has been seen favored among several regional critics groups recently. Instead, the spots are filled by Christian Bale, Antonio Banderas, Adam Driver, Joaquin Phoenix and Jonathon Pryce. Best Actor- Comedy/Musical is occupied by Taron Egerton, Daniel Craig, Roman Griffin Davis, Eddie Murphy and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Awkwafina continues to appear in the awards season, holding it down in Best Actress- Comedy/Muusical for “The Farewell,” whereas the film’s director Lulu Wang missed out on a nomination along with celebrated supporting actress Zhao Shuzhen. “The Farewell” did get a nomination in Foreign Language Film, a category it shares with “Les Misérables,” “Pain and Glory,” “Portrait of A Lady on Fire” and “Parasite.”

Edward Norton’s “Motherless Brooklyn” made an appearance in the nominations for Best Original Score, a category that also includes “1917,” “Little Women,” “Joker” and “Marriage Story.”

On the television front, a glaring snub stands for Ava DuVernay’s “When They See Us,” the miniseries that has received nothing short of praise since debuting on Netflix this year. It recently received a Gotham Award nomination for Breakthrough Series. At the Golden Globes, the Emmy-winning and multiple Emmy-nominated series was shut out.

HBO’s two slots in Best TV Series- Drama with “Succession” and “Big Little Lies” will compete amongst themselves along with other nominees “The Crown,” “Killing Eve” and AppleTV’s “The Morning Show.” Contending actors in the television categories include Bill Hader, Billy Porter, Natasha Lyonne, Rachel Brosnahan, Michael Douglas, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Ben Platt.

Ricky Gervais will host the 77th Golden Globe Awards ceremony on Jan. 5 live from the Beverly Hilton.
