Complete List of the 78th Golden Globe Nominees | IGN

The nominees for the 78th Golden Globe Awards have been announced, with David Fincher’s Mank leading the pack with six nominations.

This year’s nominees were announced by Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson on an E! News simulcast of the TODAY Show on Wednesday. Mank took home nominations for Best Picture and Best Director, together with Best Actor (Gary Oldman), Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Amanda Seyfried), Best Screenplay (Jack Fincher), and Best Original Score (Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross).

Other hot contenders in the film category include Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7, which picked up five nominations, with Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland, Anthony Hopkins The Father, and Carey Mulligan’s Promising Young Woman following closely behind with four nominations apiece. Each of these titles also made an appearance in the Best Picture – Drama category.

The Golden Globe nomination ceremony made history this year, as three women were recognized in the Best Director category – which is the first time that more than one woman has been shortlisted for the category in a single year. Emerald Fennell, Regina King, and Chloé Zhao received nominations, alongside David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin.

Chadwick Boseman, who passed away in August of last year, received a posthumous Golden Globes nomination in the Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama category for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Viola Davis also received a Best Actress nomination for her role in the film.

Meanwhile, The Crown led the TV nominations, scoring six in total, including Best Television Series, Best Actor (Josh O’Connor), Best Actress (Olivia Colman, Emma Corrin), and Best Supporting Actress (Gillian Anderson, Helena Bonham Carter). The historical drama series goes up against The Mandalorian, Lovecraft Country, Ozark, and Ratched in the Best Television Series – Drama category.

As a distributor, Netflix topped the list with 42 of its titles nominated across the board, including 22 in the film category and 20 on the television side of the proceedings.
