74th Golden Globes: The Nominations & The Snubs

2017-golden-globes-nominationsAnna Kendrick, Don Cheadle and Laura Dern were up bright and early Monday morning to announce the 2017 Golden Globes nominations. As expected, a certain lavish modern-day musical was the belle of the ball.

La La Land made a huge splash, leading this year’s group with seven total nods including Best Picture (musical or comedy), Best Director and Best Actress and Best Actor for Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling respectively.

Close behind with six noms was Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight with Best Picture (Drama), Best Director and Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali to name a few. Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals and Lion starring Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman also made solid showings.

Meanwhile, Meryl Streep, who’s receiving the Cecil. B Demille Award, also scored her 30th nomination for her work in Florence Foster Jenkins. It’s the first time since Sophia Loren, that a person winning the lifetime achievement award was also nominated in the same year.

With regards to snubs, there were some big ones. Clint Eastwood’s Sully was expected to do some damage but was completely shut out, including Tom Hanks failing to secure a nod. Also with zero noms was Martin Scorsese and his film Silence. It’s stars Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield were surprisingly silenced, though Garfield did get notice for his work in Hacksaw Ridge. Finding Dory also missed out a Best Animated Nod while Taraji P. Henson was nowhere to be found for her awesomeness in Hidden Figures.

Over on the television side, freshmen breakouts Westworld and This Is Us did quite well with three apiece. Both are vying for Best Drama, with two actresses from each snagging acting nods. However, The People v. O.J. Simpson led the TV pack with five total nominations. The biggest snub for me on the small screen has to be Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt getting absolutely no love. Boo HFPA!!!

The 74th Golden Globes will be broadcast by NBC on Sunday, Jan. 8, and will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon. Check out all the nominees below.
