This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association revealed the nominees for the 2021 Golden Globes. Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson announced the nominees virtually in a live telecast on NBC. Now in its 78th year, the annual awards ceremony recognizes excellence in film and television, both domestic and foreign.

On the film side, Netflix came out swinging with key nominations for Mank, The Trial of the Chicago 7, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Pieces of a Woman, and The Prom. The vintage David Fincher Mank spectacle nabbed six nominations, including Best Picture.

The real story, though, belongs to filmmakers Regina King, Chloé Zhao, and Emerald Fennell. To date, only five female directors have ever been recognized by the Globes — with only one winner in Barbra Streisand — so it’s a major turn of events.

When it comes to television, Netflix was similarly strong with The Crown, Ozark, Ratched, and The Queen’s Gambit cleaning up categories. However, not surprisingly, Emmy juggernaut hit Schitt’s Creek also carved out a healthy chunky of real estate.

Altogether, it’s a very eclectic slate with myriad surprises, among them being nominations for the controversially divisive Music, a Best Supporting Actor nod for Jared Leto in the critically derided The Little Things, and, well, anything for The Prom.

There were also some major snubs, particularly for Spike Lee’s critically acclaimed Da 5 Bloods (not even for Delroy Lindo?), HBO’s I May Destroy You, and A24’s Minari, which received a sole Foreign Language Film nomination.

Check out the full list nominees below. Winners will be announced during a live gala on February 28th aired on NBC, which was postponed by two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Saturday Night Live alums Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return to host the festivities for the first time since 2015 — from two separate coasts, no less.
