1 min read

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) has announced the nominees for the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Sarah Jessica Parker, six-time Golden Globe winner, and Taraji P. Henson, Golden Globe winner, disclosed the nominees.

For the first time in the history of the Golden Globes, the nominations were announced virtually, following the current safety measures during the Covid pandemic.

Mank and The Crown snagged a leading six nominations each, signaling a win for Netflix while Amazon Studios and Hulu netted 19 combined nominations across the film and television categories.

Regina King, Emerald Fennell and Chloé Zhao were nominated for Best Director, marking the first time more than one woman has been nominated in the category. Check all the nominations ahead of the 78th annual awards show on February 28.

TV and film fans were expressing their frustration on Wednesday, after the 2021 Golden Globe nominations revealed a number of high-profile snubs. Among them are Michaela Coel’s drama “I May Destroy You” and Steven Yeun’s role in the film “Minari.” Others are surprised by the lack of recognition for the film “Da 5 Bloods,” directed by Spike Lee and starring Delroy Lindo.

The 78th Golden Globes will take place on February 28,  coast to coast from 5 pm to 8 pm PT/8-11 ET on NBC. The event will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, returning for the fourth time, after hosting in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Fey and Poehler will share duties from their respective cities, with Fey on the East Coast and Poehler on the West Coast. Fey will be live from New York’s Rainbow Room, Poehler will be live from the Beverly Hilton, in Beverly Hills, and nominees, from various locations around the world.

In addition to the categories announced today, the 2021 Golden Globes will honor Jane Fonda with the Cecil B. deMille Award, and Norman Lear with the Carol Burnett Award. Lear will be the third recipient of the recently created Carol Burnett Award, which honors contributions to television.

As previously announced, Satchel and Jackson Lee, children of filmmaker and three-time Golden Globe nominee Spike Lee and producer and philanthropist Tonya Lewis Lee, will serve as the 2021 Golden Globe Ambassadors.

Produced by dick clark productions in association with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 210 territories worldwide.
