And the nominees are…

Netflix-made period dramas topped the Golden Globe nominations announced overnight. On the TV side of the ledger, The Crown scored 6 nominations including best series, drama, and leads for Olivia Colman and Josh O’Connor. Schitt’s Creek’s final series scooped up 5 nominations, while Ozark (4 noms) and The Queen’s Gambit (2 noms) rounded out Netflix’s top performers. For movies, Mank (about Citizen Kane co-writer Herman Mankiewicz) led with 6 nominations including best film, drama, and best actor for Gary Oldman. Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7 was next cab off the rank with 5 nominations. In a year that so many cinemas were closed, the streamer’s success makes sense… The winners will be announced in a (most probably virtual) ceremony hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on 28 February. A full list of nominees is here.
