Nominations for the 78th film and TV awards show


Awkwafina accepts the BEST PERFORMANCE BY ACTRESS IN A MOVING PICTURE – MUSIC OR COMEDY for “The Farewell” on stage during the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 5, 2020 in Beverly Hills, California.


History was made on Wednesday during the 2021 Golden Globe nominee unveiling. The Hollywood Foreign Press has honored three women directors, the first time in a year that more than one woman has been nominated for Best Director.

Regina King was nominated for “One Night in Miami”, Chloe Zhao for “Nomadland” and Emerald Fennell for “Promising Young Woman”. David Fincher was also nominated for directing “Mank” and Aaron Sorkin for “The Trial of the Chicago 7”.

With the support of actresses Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson, the Hollywood Foreign Press announced the nominations for the 78th annual Golden Globe Awards on Wednesday. This year’s nominees are a mix of old favorites and new obsessions highlighting the most popular television programs and films audiences have seen from their homes during the ongoing global pandemic.

Schitt’s Creek, which won the 2020 Emmy Awards, received five nominations, including four nods in acting categories and one for Best Comedy Series.

Netflix’s “The Queen’s Gambit,” “The Crown,” and “Unorthodox” also earned nominations for Drama and Best Drama Series in the television category. And Disney + was nominated for Best Drama Series for “The Mandalorian”.

The award ceremony, which will take place on February 28, recognizes outstanding achievements in film and television. It airs on NBC.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, veteran hosts of the Globes, will return to lead the event. The pair will be airing in different locations due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Fey will appear live at New York’s Rainbow Room and Poehler at the Beverly Hilton.

The Hollywood Foreign Press previously announced that Jane Fonda would receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award and Norman Lear would receive the Carol Burnett Award.
