73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards Nomination


The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees for 2016 Golden Globe Awards. CAROL leads the bunch with 5 nominations for picture drama, director, both Blanchett and Mara in lead and score. It surprisingly didn't get a screenplay nod. MAD MAX: FURY ROAD got in for both picture drama and director but no score. THE REVENANT got nominations for picture drama, director, lead actor DiCaprio and score. That and THE BIG SHORT were second most nominated films. The latter film just seems to rise and rise having done well at SAG as well. It got screenplay and two lead actor nominations apart from best picture musical or comedy. Talking about that category, other nominations included THE MARTIAN, JOY, TRAINWRECK and SPY. The Martian also got nods for its director and lead actor, Joy for its lead actress, Trainwreck and Spy also for their lead actresses.

SPOTLIGHT have had a seriously strange situation in the last 48 hours. Yet again it has not been nominated for its male stars, any stars to be exact here. It got director and screenplay nods only apart from picture. Last film in drama category would be ROOM which did quite well here despite my post-SAG doubts. It managed to get three nods which also included a sure bet lead actress as well as screenplay. Alicia Vikander got double nominations. Both Cranston and Mirren are nominated as well. YOUTH got song and supporting actress nods but not for Michael Caine. Will Smith is nominated for CONCUSSION and Johnny Depp isn't for BLACK MASS. Michael Shannon gets another shoutout for 99 HOMES. Idris Elba and Sylvester Stallone are nominated. Paul Dano too. THE HATEFUL EIGHT and STEVE JOBS got notices for their screenplay, score and actors. Check out the full list of nominees below:
