If you weren’t among the internet crowds devouring divorce drama Marriage Story on Netflix this weekend…you’re probably going to want to get on that.
That’s because the film, starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson, leads the film nominations for the 2020 Golden Globe Awards with a total of six nods. Driver and Johansson were both recognized in their acting categories, while writer-director Noah Baumbach was nominated in the Best Screenplay category.
Marriage Story also joined Joker, war epic 1917, The Irishman and upcoming Netflix flick The Two Popes in the Best Motion Picture – Drama category. Over on the funnier side, Dolemite Is My Name, Knives Out, Jojo Rabbit, Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood and Elton John biopic Rocketman are all up for Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical.
Other movie acting noms include (but are not limited to): Joaquin Phoenix for Joker, Antonio Banderas for Spanish drama Pain and Glory, Renée Zellweger for Judy, Charlize Theron for Bombshell, Brad Pitt for Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, Awkwafina for The Farewell and Jennifer Lopez for Hustlers.
In both unfortunate and not-at-all surprising news, not one woman was nominated in the directing category. We have nothing else to add to that other than to note that women did, in fact, direct movies this year (like The Farewell, Booksmart, Hustlers, Little Women and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, all of which were recognized in other categories).
Let’s not forget that the Globes also reward TV shows at its yearly fête. HBO’s Chernobyl and Netflix’s Unbelievable and The Crown lead the pack with four nominations each. Fleabag, Big Little Lies, Killing Eve and The Morning Show were all recognized in multiple categories as well.
The 2020 Golden Globes are set for Sunday, January 5, with Ricky Gervais returning to host for the fifth time. You can read the full list of nominations here, and watch the trailers for some of the nominees below.
