Earlier this morning, presenters Alfre Woodard, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Bell, and Sharon Stone—paragons of professionalism all—were on hand to announce the nominees for the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the ungodly hour of 5:30 a.m. PT while the hills around them burned.


Guillermo Del Toro’s love letter to monster movies (and cinema in general) The Shape Of Water matched last year’s similarly starry-eyed La La Land with seven nominations, leading a slate that doesn’t significantly deviate from the awards that have already been given out by critics in New York and L.A. itself. Speaking of which, National Board Of Review favorite The Post picked up six nominations alongside Martin McDonagh’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, followed closely by Lady Bird with four—although Greta Gerwig was shut out of the all-male Best Director category.


Universal’s strategy of nominating Get Out as a comedy, controversial as it may have been, achieved its intended effect with two nominations, although director Jordan Peele wasn’t recognized. Ridley Scott was, though, for his quick-change act replacing Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer in his Getty kidnapping pic All The Money In The World; Plummer also scored a nomination—one of three for the film in total—whether due to his brilliant performance or simply voters’ respect for his nimbleness.

In TV, sadly, Laura Dern is not up against herself for her performances in Twin Peaks: The Return and Big Little Lies this year, although Kyle Maclachlan did score a welcome Best Actor in a Limited Series nomination for the former. Not that Big Little Lies is hurting for recognition, though, leading the TV pack with six nominations (including one for Dern, don’t worry) in a year that put HBO back on top with 12 nominations to Netflix’s nine and Hulu’s three. Broadcast networks continue to lag behind, though, as FX beat its closest network competitor, NBC, with eight nominations to NBC’s five. You can see a full list of Golden Globes nominees below, and catch the ceremony on January 7, hosted by Seth Meyers.
