It’s time for celebration. The long wait ends and the hard work and efforts come to fruition soon. The nominees for the 75th Golden Globe Awards were announced on 11th December. The award ceremony is held every year to recognise and award the best in Hollywood and American Television.


The ceremony will be produced by Dick Clark Productions in association with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and will be televised in the United States by NBC. Talk-show host Seth Meyers will host the ceremony for the first time. Oprah Winfrey was announced as Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award honouree. The nominees were announced by Sharon Stone, Alfre Woodard, Kristen Bell and Garrett Hedlund.

Vanity Fair wrote that The Shape of Water led the pack with seven nominations, including nods for best picture, director, and actress, all in the drama category. It was followed closely by The Post and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, two more dramas that picked up a respectable six nominations apiece. In the comedy categories, Lady Bird reigned supreme with four nods, although it may face stiff competition from I, Tonya—which got three—and The Greatest Showman, the upcoming P.T. Barnum musical starring Hugh Jackman.

The biggest shock in the film categories, however, were the three nods given to All the Money in the World, a Ridley Scott film that underwent hasty reshoots and edits this fall after Scott decided to replace star Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer, following a series of accusations of sexual misconduct against Spacey. The movie has not yet screened for critics—but evidently, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has seen it, and liked it well enough to cite it for best director, actress (Michelle Williams), and supporting actor (Plummer).

On the television side of the aisle, Big Little Lies—of course—got the most nominations, scoring six total nods. The Handmaid’s Tale—which, like Big Little Lies, recently won big at the Emmys—was tied for most-decorated drama with This Is Us; each earned three nominations. Meanwhile, few comedies stood out from the pack; several series have two nominations each, including Globes favourite Black-ish, Amazon’s brand-new stunner The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel, Aziz Ansari’s Netflix gem Master of None, the new Showtime hit SMILF and NBC’s well-liked revival of Will & Grace.
