Aussies sweep Golden Globe noms


Crowe, who was a regular nominee at the Golden Globes and Oscars in the early 2000s, has been on the outer for more than a decade.

He was welcomed back on Monday when he picked up a Globe nomination for portraying controversial Fox News boss Roger Ailes in the TV miniseries The Loudest Voice.

Crowe will compete against Sacha Baron Cohen (The Spy), Sam Rockwell (Fosse/Verdon), Christopher Abbott (Catch-22) and Jared Harris (Chernobyl) in the limited series or TV movie best actor category.

Kidman cleaned up on the awards show circuit two years ago for her complex and challenging performance as Celeste Wright in the first season of Big Little Lies, and she was rewarded again for season two of the TV series based on Sydney author Liane Moriarty’s novel.

Kidman has plenty of competition in the lead actress in a TV drama race with her Big Little Lies co-star Reese Witherspoon nominated for her the #MeToo-inspired The Morning Show, along with her co-star Jennifer Aniston, Oscar winner Olivia Colman (The Crown) and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve).

Rising Australian star Sarah Snook was a surprise snub in the category for her scene-stealing role in the TV drama Succession.

Robbie’s pursuit of an Oscar remains on track with her nod for best supporting actress in the movie Bombshell, also about Ailes’ reign of workplace sexual harassment at Fox News.

Robbie’s category is also stacked with A-listers; Jennifer Lopez (Hustlers), Kathy Bates (Richard Jewell), Annette Bening (The Report) and Laura Dern (Marriage Story) are also nominated.

Blanchett, nominated for best actress in a musical or comedy movie for Where’d You Go, Bernadette, is up against Emma Thompson (Late Night), Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart), Awkwafina (The Farewell) and Ana De Armas (Knives Out).

Collette, nominated in the supporting actress in a TV series or movie category for Unbelievable, also faces star-studded competition from Meryl Streep (Big Little Lies), Patricia Arquette (The Act), Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown) and Emily Watson (Chernobyl) receiving nods.

Another surprise snub was New Zealand’s Taika Waititi who missed out on directing kudos for his comedy/drama Jojo Rabbit, but the film did score a nod in the best comedy/musical picture category.

STREAMING GIANT DOMINATES

Meanwhile, Netflix dominated the nominations, as its heart-wrenching divorce saga Marriage Story grabbed six nods including best drama, kicking off the race for the Oscars.

The streaming giant secured a whopping 17 film nominations unveiled at a Beverly Hills ceremony, trouncing the competition from Hollywood studios among whom Sony finished second with just eight.

“I’m not surprised by the dominance — I’m surprised by how massive the dominance is,” Lorenzo Soria, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association said.

“The announcements this morning are sort of like a coming of age of the streaming services.” The Irishman, Martin Scorsese’s three-and-a-half-hour gangster epic also from Netflix, secured five nominations, ending tied for second with Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino’s nostalgic love letter to 1960s Tinseltown.

The nominations traditionally see the stars and movies destined for awards success start to break away from the competition — the Globes are seen as a key bellwether for February’s Academy Awards.

Marriage Story earned nominations for its stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, and for its screenplay, but director Noah Baumbach missed out.

The film portrays how a seemingly stable love can be ripped apart after Johansson’s actress moves from New York to Los Angeles, calling in the lawyers as she separates from a narcissistic theatre director played by Driver.

Scorsese was nominated for best director for Irishman but there was no best actor nod for his leading man Robert De Niro. Instead, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci were both selected for supporting roles.

For Once Upon a Time in Hollywood there were acting nods for A-listers Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.

Netflix’s Vatican drama The Two Popes also performed well for the streamer, while dark comic book tale Joker received recognition in best drama, best actor (Joaquin Phoenix) and best director.

STAR POWER

Underlining its supremacy, Netflix also secured the most television nominations. The latest series of royal family drama The Crown, which features an all-new cast led by Olivia Colman, secured a joint-top four nominations, as did the streaming giant’s limited series Unbelievable. Netflix managed 17 television nominations, to its rival HBO’s 15. Apple’s new batch of television shows for its streaming platform Apple TV+, launched last month, secured their first three nominations, all for flagship launch program The Morning Show.

Lead actresses Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, who also executive-produced the series about a morning news program hit by a #MeToo scandal, were both nominated.

The nominations were announced at an early-morning Beverly Hills ceremony by actor Tim Allen (Toy Story) and actresses Dakota Fanning (I Am Sam) and Susan Kelechi Watson (This Is Us).

The 77th Golden Globes will take place in Los Angeles on January 5, two days before voting for Oscars nominees ends.

Nods for Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez across best original song (The Lion King, Cats) and best supporting actress (Hustlers) will lend further star power to the gala hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

The show will be hosted by British comedian Ricky Gervais, returning for a record fifth time.
