2017 Golden Globes – Who’s In and Who’s Out?
The 74th annual Golden Globes ceremony is less than a month away. After plenty of expectations and speculations, this year’s list of nominees was announced on Monday. As usual, this year’s nominations include plenty of surprises, and even more surprising snubs. Here’s the complete rundown:
This Year’s Nominations
The big film to rake in the nominations this year is La La Land with seven mentions. Other high-ranking contenders include Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea. Garth Davis’ film Lion received nominations in several categories, including best drama and best supporting actor and actress in a drama for actors Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman. Florence Foster Jenkins also received recognition for best musical or comedy in the 2017 Golden Globes, as well as best actor and actress for a musical or comedy.
The top TV shows for this year were The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, and The Night Manager, with five and four mentions, respectively. Long-running TV dramas to receive nominations included Stranger Things and Westworld, while musical and comedy show nominations included Atlanta and Blackish.
All eyes are on Meryl Streep this year as she will be awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award. In addition to recognition for her prominent career, Streep is also up for best actress for her role in Florence Foster Jenkins. Winona Ryder is back with a nomination for best actress for her role in Stranger Things, her first nomination in over twenty years.
Both Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone were nominated for their starring roles in the much acclaimed La La Land. Natalie Portman also received a nod for portraying the iconic Jackie Kennedy in Jackie.
A surprise nomination came for veteran actor Nick Nolte for his role in Graves. This lesser-known show was not a main subject of this year’s predictions, and Nolte’s nomination came as a surprise to many.
This Year’s Snubs
Don’t expect to see Tom Hanks in the 2017 Golden Globes. Though he’s been nominated eight times previously, his work in this year’s Sully was not recognized. In fact, don’t expect to see Clint Eastwood’s film nominated for anything.
Among the nominations for Stranger Things, none of the kids in the show were nominated, despite their prominent roles.
Another surprise was in for Matthew McConaughey, who received no nomination for his role in Gold. Micheal Keaton’s role in The Founder was not recognized either, which was especially surprising considering he won the Best Actor title for 2015’s Birdman.
Dramas with female leads were snubbed as every top film in the drama category features a male lead. Though films such as Jackie and Hidden Figures highlight prominent women in history, both were passed up in best film nominations. Many expected the historical drama Silence to garner recognition by the HFPA, but it was shut out from all nominations.
See who takes home the awards this year on January 8 with host Jimmy Fallon. The 2017 Golden Globes will begin at 5:00 p.m. PST/ 8:00 p.m. EST on NBC.
