...And 'I May Destroy You' has been snubbed.
The Golden Globes have announced this year’s nominations and Twitter has been quick to notice that their taste in TV is more than a little chaotic.
Namely, guilt watch Emily in Paris – panned by critics for its klutzy script and avant-basic fashion – has been nominated twice, for Best TV Series and Best Actress in a TV Series in the musical or comedy category. Adding insult to injury, Michaela Coel’s I May Destroy You, one of the year’s most thought-provoking releases, has been unceremoniously snubbed.
Elsewhere, directors Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman), Regina King (One Night in Miami) and Chloe Zhao (Nomadland) have broken records after being nominated for the Best Director prize, the first time more than one woman has been put forward at any one time.
David Fincher’s Mank leads the movie nominations with 6 nods, closed followed by The Trial of the Chicago 7 with 5 and The Father, Nomadland and Promising Young Woman who are tied with 4 nominations each. The most celebrated TV shows are The Crown and Schitt’s Creek, which have scooped up 6 and 5 nominations respectively.
The winners of this year’s Golden Globes will be announced on 28 February through a live broadcast hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
