Golden Globes: ‘Get Out’ Lands Best Picture Nomination Amid Comedy Dispute

Golden Globes: ‘Get Out’ Lands Best Picture Nomination Amid Comedy Dispute
When the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. agreed to uphold Universal’s placement of Jordan Peele’s horror satire “Get Out” in the comedy category at the Golden Globes, it registered as an affront for many. “Their [sic] is nothing funny about racism,” one of the film’s stars, Lil Rel Howard tweeted. “The real question is, what are you laughing at? … Are you disregarding what’s real about this project,” Peele posed to an Indiewire reporter, before later clarifying that he was aware of the decision-making process.

Media got a solid week or so out of the talking point. There was a sense of perceived demotion in some quarters — along with a distinct whiff of comedy being seen as “lesser than” — while in others, a broader definition of comedy was called for and defended. Still others saw it as a big studio gaming the system, as Fox was accused of doing with “The Martian” two years ago, though

Golden Globes 2018 Film Surprises and Snubs: ‘The Greatest Showman’ Lands 3, But ‘The Big Sick’ Is Shut Out
Fox Searchlight had a lovely Golden Globes nominations morning, notching 15 nominations as Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” continued its Critics Choice surge with seven nominations, followed by Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” with six. The other expected drama nominations were Fox’s Steven Spielberg journalism valentine “The Post” (six), Sony Pictures Classics gay love story “Call Me By Your Name” (three), and Warner Bros.Christopher Nolan war movie “Dunkirk” (three).

Finally, Working Title/Focus Features’ other World War II drama, “Darkest Hour,” seems to be strictly a Gary Oldman Drama Actor play, while Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread” landed nods for Daniel Day-Lewis and Johnny Greenwood for Score. Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” (A24) posted strong results on the Comedy side (four).

The typically idiosyncratic — and senior — Hollywood Foreign Press honored many old friends Monday morning as it did not fail, as usual,

Golden Globes 2018: 10 Biggest Wtf Snubs and Surprises
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association dropped their nominations for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards this morning, shouting out some brand new TV shows and adding some momentum to some of the biggest awards season campaigns – The Shape of Water!

Oscar Fortunes Appear to Rise and Fall, but It’s Just the Golden Globes

Oscar Fortunes Appear to Rise and Fall, but It’s Just the Golden Globes
Nominations for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards are in as the 2017-2018 film awards season adds yet another notch to its belt. There were snubs, there were surprises, but nothing about Monday morning’s announcement would appear to have significantly altered the course of the circuit. Then again, nothing ever really does; these are just the opinions of a few dozen international journalists who happen to have their own highly rated, liquored-up, televised awards ceremony. Let’s dive in and take a look at what all of it actually means …

Star power

The HFPA has long been noted for its love affair with the stars. This year the group found ways to ensure that people like Angelina Jolie (“First They Killed My Father”), Steve Carell (“Battle of the Sexes”), Tom Hanks (“The Post”), Denzel Washington (“Roman J. Israel, Esq.”), Hugh Jackman (“The Greatest Showman”), Mary J. Blige (“Mudbound”), and even Mariah Carey and Nick Jonas (songs

Golden Globes Nominations: First-Timers Break Through

Golden Globes Nominations: First-Timers Break Through
Every awards group has their trademark quirks, and the HFPA loves nothing more than anointing the wunderkinds. And this year didn’t disappoint: On the TV side, voters embraced Showtime’s “Smilf” and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”; in film, breakouts included Margot Robbie, Daniel Kaluuya, and Timothée Chalamet.

Several others across film and TV were also rewarded for their work with their first-ever Golden Globes nominations.

Movies:

Out of both actress categories, there was one sole new nominee: Margot Robbie landed her first nod in the musical or comedy field for her heralded turn as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya.” She’s up against previous winners Judi Dench (“Victoria & Abdul”), Helen Mirren (“The Leisure Seeker”) and Emma Stone (“Battle of the Sexes”) and previous nominee Saoirse Ronan (“Lady Bird.”) The actress in a drama category is all previous Globe winners: Jessica Chastain (“Molly’s Game”), Sally Hawkins (“The Shape of Water”), [link

Golden Globes 2018: The 8 Biggest Movie Nomination Surprises and Snubs

Golden Globes 2018: The 8 Biggest Movie Nomination Surprises and Snubs
The Golden Globe nominations are as Golden Globe-y as ever. It is largely impossible to predict who the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will deem worthy of being invited to their annual shindig, and this year proved no exception. While there were enough sure things in the mix (the HFPA loves Meryl Streep) and some omissions we knew were longshots all along (sorry, Wonder Woman), there are a number of surprises and snubs worth discussing.

Surprises

Christopher Plummer for All the Money in the World. And here we said it as a joke. We didn't know anyone had even seen All the Money in the World yet -- since Plummer filmed his parts last month -- but he somehow managed a nomination. In fact, all the love for All the Money in the World, which also included nominations for Best Actress for Michelle Williams and Best Director (more on that in a second), came as a surprise.

The Biggest Snubs and Surprises of the 2018 Golden Globe Nominations: No Wonder Woman!

  • PEOPLE.com
The Biggest Snubs and Surprises of the 2018 Golden Globe Nominations: No Wonder Woman!
Among the many surprises in the Golden Globes movie nominations, announced Monday, were bids for a movie best known for no longer starring Kevin Spacey and the lack of love shown to Wonder Woman.

All the Money in the World, the Ridley Scott-directed film about the John Paul Getty III kidnapping, received a nod for best supporting actor Christopher Plummer, whose performance as rich old J. Paul Getty was shot and edited into the movie in only the past month — seemingly the blink of an eye — after Spacey, amid escalating allegations about inappropriate sexual behavior, was completely edited out.
