The 2020 Golden Globe nominations are here! I’m splitting up the nominations into two posts, one for film and one for television. This is the film nomination post. A lot has happened with the critics awards in the past week, and just yesterday, the Critics Choice announced their awards too – it’s clear that the early favorites, as of early December, are The Irishman, Marriage Story, Joker and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I’m actually slightly surprised by how these campaigns and frontrunners have solidified so quickly. You can see the Critics Choice nominations here. And here are the major Golden Globe film nominations (you can see the full GG nomination list here).

I’m sure there are a lot of happy people about Rocketman and Taron Egerton! Good for him. Lots of love for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and The Irishman, which I expected. I think it’s interesting that 1917 snuck in there with a drama nomination – the Academy loves a war film, so keep your eye on that Oscar campaign. Lots of love for Jojo Rabbit, which shouldn’t be surprising. Love for Marriage Story, also not a surprise. I’m happy to see Antonio Banderas getting lots of recognition, and of course I’m happy to see the Knives Out people! I don’t know, are there any major snubs? I can’t see them. Oh, CATS didn’t get nominated but of course Taylor Swift got nominated for that song she wrote for the film. LOL.
