This time around it was a total change in gears and also interesting to see just how tables have turned with globally prominent OTT streaming platform Netflix being the show stopper in the 78th Golden Globe Awards Nominations also clearly giving an indication of the power paradigms shifting from traditional film studios and TV broadcasters to the digital stalwarts who have gained accolades and love of fans and audiences in past few years. It’s indeed a new welcoming change of the hour as Netflix leads golden globes, The Crown and Mank score 6 nominations.
With the power dynamics changed drastically in the past year 2020 thanks to the coronavirus global pandemic, it’s a happy moment to see Netflix leads Golden Globes, The Crown and Mank score 6 nominations.
Giving the toughest competition to other digital OTT platforms and also to the traditional films and TV broadcasters, Netflix leads Golden Globes, The Crown and Mank score 6 nominations.
Netflix literally dominated the 78th Golden Globes Awards nominations with the biggest ever 42 nominations all across films and television categories which also include nods and green signals for The Trial of the Chicago 7, The Queen’s Gambit, and The Crown.
Where Netflix’s film Mank, which is a monochrome black and white drama which is an ode to the old Hollywood which had been released by globally prominent streaming giant Netflix that is becoming the digital star of movie business, this film grabbed 6 nominations which include best drama, David Fincher for best director, Gary Oldman for best actor, while Amanda Seyfried was nominated in the supporting actress category and Jack Fincher for best screenplay.
The Crown, which is also another Netflix produced series, leaded the Television category with 6 nominations as well. This lavish and larger than life historical drama that portrays and chronicles the private life of Queen Elizabeth II got nominations for best TV drama, along with being nominated for several performances of its cast which includes Olivia Colman who plays the monarch and Emma Corrin, the actress who essayed the character of Princess Diana.
The globes are like the Oscars, but are more loud, filled with glamour and booze where the funnier cousin champagne is seen flowing freely where these awards are mainly focused on acting and direction and very less on the technical categories like sound editing or cinematography, which also indicates about how the ball room of the Beverly Hilton is strictly and totally A-list only with viewers tuned in partly on the chance of getting to see a sneak peek and glimpse of their favorite stars loosening their inhibitions and sophistication ever so slightly.
Some fan favorite series also scored some nominations on Wednesday morning. The highly-lauded Netflix limited series “The Queen’s Gambit” got 2 nominations with one for best limited series and another for best actress in a limited series (Anya Taylor-Joy). The theatrical release of “Hamilton” also got nominated in two categories namely, the best motion picture [musical or comedy] and best actor in a motion picture [musical or comedy] to Lin-Manuel Miranda.
This year’s globes are going to be really different as they are going to be unfolded virtually with their veteran hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on 28th February 2021 at NBC Channel.
