The 2021 Golden Globes Nominations Are Here

Award shows! We're still doing them in 2021, and on February 28, the Golden Globes will kick off the start of the season. Hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in a bicoastal virtual event for the first time ever, there will likely be even more opportunity for famous faces and nominees to be incorporated into the show. Remember Jennifer Aniston with that fire hydrant at the Emmys? And I have to wonder if we're getting a hazmat situation once again.

But before we get to the Who's Who of presenters, we have to talk about all of the nominees. Announced via a livestream on February 3 by Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson, this year's slate should offer a diverse mix of stories from TV and movies about women, humour, and survival. We're hoping to see Anya-Taylor Joy from Netflix's hit The Queen's Gambit, Carey Mulligan in Promising Young Woman, and everyone in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. After putting the future of Hollywood on the shoulders of its only two winners of colour last year, as our TV critic Ariana Romero wrote, let's see if the Globes can recognise and support more diverse and hopeful talent.
Here are the nominees for the 78th Golden Globe Awards, as chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
