2020 Golden Globes Nominees

The nominations for the 2020 Golden Globes were unveiled in Los Angeles on December 9 by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Genre highlights on the television side are the nominees for lead actor in a television drama, Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) and Rami Malek, (Mr. Robot).

(Game of Thrones was otherwise shut out — Variety counted the absence of Peter Dinklage among the finalists as one of its snubs and surprises.)

In the movie categories, Joker and lead actor Joaquin Phoenix received nominations.

Genre dominated the Original Song (“Beautiful Ghosts,” Cats, “Into the Unknown,” Frozen 2, “Spirit,” The Lion King) and Animated Feature (Frozen 2, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, The Lion King, Missing Link, Toy Story 4 ) categories.

The Golden Globe Awards will be presented on January 5. Tom Hanks will receive the honorary Cecil B. DeMille Award during the ceremony.

1 thought on “2020 Golden Globes Nominees

  1. (1) Joker also received nominations for Director and Original Score (as you give in the full list, but not in the introductory text).

    (2) Russian Doll is genre, involving an attendee at a party who “dies repeatedly, always restarting at the same moment at the party, as she tries to figure out what is happening to her. (Wikipedia)”

    (3) One suspects “SuccessionAdvertisement” should be just “Succession”.

    (4) Personally, I think the fantasy elements of Jojo Rabbit make it at least genre adjacent.
