It’s that time of the year again! Awards season is here, and we could not be more thrilled. No matter how silly they might be, and no matter how many times Meryl Streep gets nominated, we still love them.
The 2018 Golden Globe nominations were revealed early Monday morning, and you can click on this link to see the full list. We’re going to be focusing on the juicy bits in this post.
The first juicy bit? Greta Gerwig was not nominated for Best Director for her wonderful work on Lady Bird. It was the best-reviewed movie of the year, but for some reason, they did not think she was deserving of a nomination. The good news is that the film is nominated for Best Picture (Comedy or Musical) and Gerwig herself is nominated for Best Screenplay.
Another surprise? Jordan Peele was not nominated for Best Director for his work on Get Out. Even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the film, I still thought he would get nominated. It’s very odd that two of the best-reviewed films of the year did not get a nomination for best directing.
Meanwhile, Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg get their annual nominations for All the Money in the World and The Post.
Another snub? No love for Wonder Woman. Many people believed it would be one of the first comic book films to receive a Best Picture nomination, but that did not happen. In fact, the film didn’t receive a single nomination.
There were no “happy surprises” in the film categories this year, but there were a few on the television side of things. 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford grabbed a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Drama. Pamela Adlon was nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for her great work in Better Things.
And last, but certainly not least, Kevin Bacon got a Best Actor nomination for his work on the underappreciated Amazon Studios series I Love Dick.
You can watch the Golden Globes on January 7, 2018.[mashshare]
