During 2021, the Golden Globes – a mainstay of awards season run by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association – have been under a very dark cloud thanks to the organisation’s ethics, governance, and diversity policies (or lack thereof…). Many are surprised it’s going ahead, but overnight the nominations were announced, and they’re the first take on the must-watch movies and TV series from the last year. Nicole Kidman has been nominated for her depiction of Lucille Ball, who was one half of the couple that created America’s most popular TV program I Love Lucy. Aussie Sarah Snook got a nod for her role in Succession, while local director Jane Campion has been nominated for Best Director and Best Motion Picture (Drama) for her western The Power of the Dog. The winners will be announced on 9 January. British actor Kenneth Branagh has also received many nominations for his film Belfast which is loosely based around his own childhood in Northern Ireland in the 1970s.
