Four Actors Receive 2 Golden Globe Nominations in 2016: How Likely Is It That …

7 key Golden Globes takeaways.

And it doesn’t look great for Black Mass, which was shut out of the major categories, with nary a best drama nomination nor a best actor nod for Johnny Depp.This analysis post should come with a disclaimer: nothing the Hollywood Foreign Press Association votes on for the Golden Globes has any bearing on the Academy Awards in terms of actual voting overlap. The series, which boasts Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman as executive producer, received kind critical notice on its debut and had scored a second-season renewal long before Thursday’s nominations were announced. “Casual” is creator and showrunner Zander Lehmann’s first series and focuses on the trials of a newly divorced single mother (Michaela Watkins) and her deep bond with her brother (Tommy Dewey) and her strained relationship with her teenage daughter (Tara Lynne Barr.) Lehmann took a moment out of his exciting morning to speak with The Times by phone about his happiness for Hulu, why streaming content is so popular and how, precisely, someone calms down after a morning of such excitement.

Todd Haynes’ lesbian drama, which began its awards march at the Cannes film festival in May, led the way with five nominations, including two for its actors, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and one for picture in the drama category. And now that the Oscar nomination deadline comes prior to the Golden Globe telecast, the winners’ acceptance speeches don’t have any direct bearing on how Academy members vote.

The Hollywood blacklist drama ¿Trumbo¿ scored a leading three Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations, Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2015, but it was sleeper contenders ¿Beasts of No Nation¿ and ¿Straight Outta Compton¿ that entered the awards conversation in a real way when both were nominated for best ensemble drama. (Hilary Bronwyn Gayle/Bleecker Street via AP) Cranston was nominated Thursday for best actor in a drama film for his portrayal of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, who was blacklisted in Hollywood for refusing to answer questions about his involvement with the Communist Party. But Hollywood is also all about perception, and Globes nominations can help shape the race and get Academy voters looking more closely at certain films or performances. Said Iñárritu in a statement following the news: “I can’t believe this time last year we were in Calgary shooting The Revenant, and right now I’m in London and just heard the good news! Cranston sees similarities today and tells The Associated Press, “It’s reminiscent of what’s going on now about the political or the ideology of some people and the fear mongering — like Donald Trump — who jumps on something and feeds the fire and creates incendiary reaction to things, scares people and they react and that’s why poll numbers are going up.” Cranston says “We just need to calm down and go back to what is foundational to this country and that is embracing differences and realizing that that’s a strength of ours and not a weakness.” The comedian watched as one of her friends, America Ferrara read the name of her film, “Trainwreck” Thursday. This film is very personal for me; so I think I will have a drink with my daughter tonight to toast to everyone who was a part of it.” The Revenant star Leonardo DiCaprio is favored to win in the actor category for his intensely committed turn as an explorer in 1823 who survives a bear mauling in the Rockies, and then finds himself fighting survival after being left for dead.

The Globes showered love over the box-office winner on Thursday morning, but no matter the category, things look good for the space tale. “Given the fact that Ridley Scott got a best director nomination (the director category combines comedies and dramas, making it a tougher race), I would hazard a guess it would have gotten the same exact nominations if it was put in drama,” says Karger. After missing out on SAG nominations this week, Creed was finally acknowledged with a best supporting actor nomination for Stallone. “He’s back in the race now,” says O’Neil. “He’s a real heavyweight contender at the Globes. The actor cited working on the project as “one of the most creative and amazing experiences of my professional life,” upon learning of his nomination. The SAG Awards went along with the assertion, but not the HFPA: The Globes rightfully nominated both great performances in the lead drama actress category. I’m not going to play it cool.’ I’ve never played anything cool in my entire life.” Amazon Video also picked up five nominations, with several for its shows “Transparent” and “Mozart in the Jungle.” Actors Jeffrey Tambor of “Transparent” and Gael García Bernal earned acting nominations for their work on the series.

It’s unlikely the Academy will follow suit, but it would be the right thing to do and open up a spot for Vikander’s other acclaimed 2015 performance in Ex Machina, which landed a Globes nod. 3. Another twist occurred in the best actor race: instead of receiving an expected nomination for his work in Spotlight, Mark Ruffalo was recognized for his work in the little-seen indie Infinitely Polar Bear, in which he plays a charming bipolar father. Jordan was snubbed for his lead role in the boxing franchise from writer-director Ryan Coogler, the nod to Sylvester Stallone in the supporting actor category at least gave some recognition to the late November release. 4.

A lot of solid performances from veteran actors were ignored by the Screen Actors Guild: Jane Fonda and Michael Caine in Youth, Blythe Danner in I’ll See You in My Dreams, Ian McKellen in Mr. Robot”; Wagner Moura, “Narcos”; Bob Odenkirk, “Better Call Saul”; Liev Schreiber, “Ray Donovan.” The best actress nominees are: Caitriona Balfe, “Outlander”; Viola Davis, “How to Get Away with Murder”; Eva Green, “Penny Dreadful”; Taraji P. Alongside DiCaprio and Fassbender, Smith is joined in the category by Bryan Cranston for Trumbo and Eddie Redmayne for Tom Hooper’s transgender drama The Danish Girl.

They are: “Anomalisa,” ”Inside Out,” ”The Good Dinosaur,” ”The Peanuts Movie” and “Shaun the Sheep Movie.” The reading of Golden Globe nominations has begun in Beverly Hills, California. It’s really refreshing that they can look at a network like Hulu that has content streaming online and see that it can be just as good as FX or HBO or anyone else. Transparent and Fargo, which factored heavily into last year’s race, are back with three mentions each, along with Mr Robot and fan favorite Outlander. Regardless, Michael Keaton and Mark Ruffalo haven’t been recognized for their performances in this film and it’s unclear if they will be going forward. The HFPA corrected some of the big omissions from Thursday, including Jennifer Lawrence (Joy), Damon, Will Smith (Concussion), The Martian, and Mad Max: Fury Road.
