'Marriage Story' Leads 2020 Golden Globe Nominations With 6 Nods, 'The Irishman,' 'Joker' Follow

Awards season has officially begun. The 2020 Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, kicking off the season of online discourse and film awards campaigning. Tim Allen, Dakota Fanning, and Susan Kelechi Watson revealed the nominations early this morning from the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, where critical darlings like Marriage Story, The Irishman, and Joker were solidified as Oscar front-runners thanks to their leading nominations in categories like Best Picture, Best Director, and more.

Celebrities will cut their gems and get their knives out for the glitzy 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which airs live on NBC on Sunday, January 5, 2019. Ricky Gervais returns to host for his fifth, and allegedly "last," go-around of awkwardly insulting a room of well-dressed, tipsy celebrities.

Marriage Story leads this year's Golden Globe nominations, with Noah Baumbach's intimate story of a dissolving marriage earning a total of six nods, including one for the coveted Best Motion Picture – Drama as well as acting nods for his lauded leads Scarlett Johansson and Adam DriverMartin Scorsese's The Irishman and Todd PhillipsJoker followed with four nominations each. Perhaps controversially, Phillips earned a Best Director nod, making the director category all-male once again. However, the Golden Globes at least avoids an all-white director category with an exciting nomination for Bong Joon-Ho's Parasite, the critically beloved Cannes Palme D'Or winner that earned a Best Foreign Language nod but was snubbed for Best Motion Picture — likely because of the same rule that kept Roma from the category last year.

But the HFPA continues to make baffling choices: Greta Gerwig and her sophomore effort Little Women only earned two nominations, with the critically acclaimed coming-of-age period drama left out of the top categories altogether. The HFPA also makes the strange decision of nominating The Farewell, an American production directed by a Chinese-American filmmaker, in its Foreign Language Film category.
