  1. @Heather Rose Jones:

    Wait…The Favourite was supposed to be a COMEDY??? Says who?

    No, a Musical, surely. [end humor attempt]
    FWIW, IMDb lists it as “Biography, Comedy, Drama.” Clearly, YMMV.

  2. The Favourite was supposed to be a COMEDY???

    Comedy usually has fewer worthy candidates than Drama, so gets a lot of borderline stuff foist onto it. I’d say it’s got a fair bit of wit and very dark comedy, which got it pushed across.

    (I also think Stone and Colman are the wrong way round for lead/supporting role.)

  3. If the Martian can qualify as a comedy/ musical, just about anything that isn’t overt (and non-sung) tragedy can…

    Everything I’ve heard about the Green Book implies exceedingly problematic race relations, and I’d have rathered at least three of the others win. (Including the Favourite. I hold off on speaking about Crazy Rich Asians .)

  4. Meanwhile, Bohemian Rhapsody, a biopic about a musician, albeit one who died of AIDS, is apparently not a musical, but a drama. Ditto for Dancer in the Dark, which is an actual musical with songs and dance numbers and was nominated in drama as well. Okay, so it has a (pretty graphic) hanging scene, but so does Chicago, which was nominated for and won in the musical category. Pennies from Heaven also has a hanging scene and other disturbing scenes and was also nominated in the musical category.

    So it is apparently almost completely random what ends up in which category at the Golden Globes.

  5. @Lenora Rose Everything I’ve heard about the Green Book implies exceedingly problematic race relations,
    It was set in the American South in the 1960s. What would you expect?
