Golden Globes Noms: Quick Reaction

This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced its nominees for this year’s 75th annual Golden Globe Awards, an event that annually honors the best in television and film. The awards will be given out on January 7th in Los Angeles. There weren’t a lot of huge surprises. I was bummed that neither Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”) nor Luca Guadagnino (“Call Me By Your Name”) were nommed for Best Director/Film — that category remains a straight-white-male club, even in post-Weinstein Hollywood. Neither “Get Out” nor “Call Me,” which are Oscar favorites for screenplay, received screenplays noms. All the Money in the World” — you know, the one that had to replace Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer just two months ago — received noms for its director (Ridley Scott) as well as for Michelle Williams and Plummer. On the TV side, “Will and Grace” popped up but mostly, like the Emmys, it was all about “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “This Is Us,” and “Big Little Lies.”
