73rd Annual Golden Globe Nominees Announced.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. In the latest sign of their lack of critical love and viewer sizzle, commercial broadcasters ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC together scored a paltry nine nods (though three more than last year), while streaming service Netflix boosted its total from last year’s seven to singlehandedly claim the lead with nine nominations distributed across six series (“Narcos,” “Orange Is the New Black,” “Grace and Frankie,” “Bloodline,” “House of Cards” and “Master of None”) plus its original film, “Beast of No Nation.” With its two nominations, tiny broadcast outlet CW beat CBS’ single mention (for supporting dramatic actor Alan Cumming in “The Good Wife”) as well as NBC (which will air the Globes awardscast on Jan. 10, but was completely snubbed on Thursday by the Globes).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.

CW’s “Jane the Virgin” leading lady Gina Rodriguez — last year’s winner — and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” star Rachel Bloom are pitted against each other in the musical or comedy actress category. In a widespread field of nominations announced Thursday in Beverly Hills, California, “Carol” solidified its growing Oscar hopes with nods for its two stars, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and for Haynes’ direction. 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.

Also surging was Adam McKay’s starry finance farce “The Big Short,” which earned four nominations, including best picture, comedy, and nods for Steve Carell and Christian Bale. “My co-producer Robyn Wholey called me and yelled with excitement,” said McKay. “I yelled with excitement. 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. It will make everyone happy.” Golden Globe nominee Bryan Cranston says he sees parallels between his film “Trumbo” and the rhetoric of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. 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.

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. The Globes showered love over the box-office winner, 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. An egg sandwich.” With four nods is Alejandro Inarritu’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning “Birdman,” the frontier epic “The Revenant,” which was nominated for best picture, drama, and best actor for Leonardo DiCaprio. After missing out on SAG nominations a day earlier, Creed was acknowledged with a supporting actor nomination for Stallone. “He’s back in the race now,” says O’Neil. “He’s a real heavyweight contender at the Globes.

Fox, shut out last year, landed four nominations thanks to two for “Empire,” plus Rob Lowe in the comedy actor category on its freshman “The Grinder” and Jamie Lee Curtis in its new horror-comedy “Scream Queens.” The most nominations for any show was three, scored by USA’s quirky thriller “Mr. 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. 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. Along with “Carol” and “The Revenant,” they are: “Mad Max: Fury Road,” ”Room” and “Spotlight.” Streaming series from Netflix (which led television with eight nods), Amazon and Hulu dominated the TV side of the Globes, which jumped all over the dial.

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. FX’s “The Americans,” which seems to singularly suffer the role of best stealth drama (having been ignored for nearly every award in its three seasons, other than the prestigious Peabody), maintained that status by escaping Globes notice again this year.

Robot,” ”Outlander,” ”Transparent,” ”American Crime” and “Wolf Hall.” In an awards season that has so far failed to produce a definite heavyweight, Tom McCarthy’s acclaimed Boston Globe drama “Spotlight” came into the Globe nominations as the Oscar favorite. 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. While it took three top Globe nominations Thursday, including best director for McCarthy and best screenplay, its ensemble cast is failing to stand out from the pack.

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. Another twist occurred in the best actor race: Instead of receiving an expected nomination for his work in Spotlight, Ruffalo was recognized for the little-seen Infinitely Polar Bear, in which he plays a charming bipolar father. Lady Gaga scored her first acting nod from the HFPA for her work on American Horror Story: Hotel, and will compete in the actress category (for a miniseries or TV movie) against Kirsten Dunst (for Fargo), Sarah Hay (Flesh & Bone), Felicity Huffman (American Crime) and Queen Latifah (Bessie). “I apologize to my neighbors I’m still screaming in my apt in NY!” tweeted Gaga. They can take a little bit of credit all the way down the line.” Most of the expected contenders came away with something to show from the Globes, including the scientific space adventure “The Martian” (including nods for star Matt Damon and director Ridley Scott), David O.

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. But it’s lovely company to be in.” Though younger stars like DiCaprio and Lawrence are the leading acting contenders, a number of esteemed veterans joined the nominations, too.

Al Pacino (“Danny Collins”), Maggie Smith (“The Lady in the Van”), Lily Tomlin (“Grandma”), Jane Fonda (“Youth”) and Helen Mirren (“Trumbo”) all earned nods. 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.
