2016 Golden Globe Nominations Announced

2016 Golden Globe nominations

The 2016 awards season is officially in full swing. Yesterday the Screen Actors Guild revealed their top choices for this winter’s race, and today it’s the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s turn to announce the nominees for the 2016 Golden Globe Awards. Actors Angela Bassett, America Ferrera, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Dennis Quaid unveiled the list this morning from the Beverly Hilton. Get the full list of 2016 Golden Globe nominations after the jump. 

On the film side, Carol led the 2016 Golden Globe nominations with five, followed by Steve Jobs, The Revenant, and The Big Short with four each. But the field looks even more interesting outside of the heavy-hitters. The Hateful EightThe Martian, and Joy, all of which were shut out of the SAG Awards nominations yesterday, fared much better today. Alicia Vikander got the expected nod for The Danish Girl, but also an unexpected one for Ex Machina. Maybe best of all, Mad Max: Fury Road is now in the running for Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director.

But not everyone got great news this morning. Creed scored a lone nomination for Sylvester Stallone, while Straight Outta Compton was snubbed completely. Spotlight got some love, but its actors didn’t — Mark Ruffalo did get nominated, but it was for Infinitely Polar Bear. And the HFPA resisted the temptation to reward Johnny Depp for his lizard-like turn as Whitey Bulger in Black Mass. (This from the same body that nominated him for The Tourist five years ago.)

Moving on to TV, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association apparently loves streaming, handing out nominations to Hulu’s Casual, Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle, and last year’s big winner Transparent. And they’re unafraid of the new. Mr. Robot was one of the strongest freshman series with three nominations, while Rachel Bloom was recognized for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Rob Lowe for The Grinder. They do not, however, care for superheroes; Daredevil and Jessica Jones went ignored.
