The 2020 Golden Globe Nominations Are Here

It's Netflix's world, and we're all just living in it

No one in the world has seen Cats, but that didn't stop Taylor Swift from picking up a coveted nomination ahead of the 2020 Golden Globes for her original song for it ("Beautiful Ghosts") anyway. And she's not the only major pop star to score a nod at the 77th Golden Globe Awards either; Beyoncé's "Spirit," as featured in Disney's Lion King remake, was also nominated, and awards season darling Jennifer Lopez was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her standout work in Hustlers. But this is the Golden Globes we're talking about: the epitome of celebrity spectacle, eccentricity, and unexpected — and refreshingly diverse — nominees. It's a ceremony that often embraces fresh faces (Beanie Feldstein! Awkwafina!) and new platforms.

Case in point: The total dominance of streamer Netflix in major categories this year. Martin Scorsese’s generational gangster drama The Irishman, Noah Baumbach’s raw Marriage Story, and Fernando Meirelles's The Two Popes all scored noms for Best Motion Picture, Drama, alongside Sam Mendes World War I epic 1917 and Todd Phillips's box office-busting Joker. Dolemite Is My Name, also distributed by Netflix, scored nods for star Eddie Murphy, Best Screenplay, and Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.

On the TV side of things, Netflix also reigned supreme with the most nominations in the television categories. The Crown and Unbelievable scored the most nominations, along with HBO's limited series Chernobyl, with four each.

So, is it Netflix's world and we're all just living in it? Perhaps. But you still need to tune into NBC on January 5, 2020, to actually watch the 2020 Golden Globes. Until then, check out the full list of nominees below:
