nominees//75th GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS

AWARDS COVERAGE




Though critics groups and independent film institutions have announced nominations and winners over the past few weeks, today marks the first list of the year's best from the 'big three' awards shows: the Academy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, and Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The Golden Globe Awards, presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, celebrate its 75th year of recognizing the best in film and television.

In terms of awards season bets, the Golden Globes are generally a mixed bag. The awards are split by Drama and Comedy/Musical, allowing for some films to gain awards season momentum, but mostly it's a show for Hollywood heavyweights to take a load off and enjoy an evening of celebration before the true cusp of the season gets underway: the Academy Awards.

The nominees were revealed by a handful of Hollywood players: Kristin Bell, Garrett Hedlund, Alfre Woodard, and Sharon Stone.

The Shape of Water leads the films nominees, with 7 mentions including Best Picture-Drama. Big Little Lies tops the television side with 6 nominations.

The biggest snubs and surprises include no mentions for Greta Gerwig and Jordan Peele in the directing category (both are considered major contenders for the Oscar) and multiple mentions for both The Greatest Showman and All the Money in the World. The latter's nominations include two acting mentions: Michelle Williams for Best Actress-Drama and Christopher Plummer for Best Supporting Actor. Plummer's nomination is the biggest surprise as the actor only filmed his performance over the past month, replacing scenes previously filmed by Kevin Spacey, whose role was depleted after his sexual assault scandal surfaced.

The 75th Golden Globe Awards take place January 7, 2018 with Seth Meyers hosting.
