The 2024 Golden Globes Nominations: Golden Globes-ier Than Ever


Usually, all eyes are on the Golden Globes as a result of the award present is a significant precursor to Oscar season, however this 12 months the stakes are notably excessive; the January 7, 2024 Globes telecast would be the first ceremony for the reason that Hollywood International Press Affiliation, mired in scandals associated to its lack of voter range and the sexual misconduct allegations in opposition to former president Philip Berk, shut down and bought its belongings to a brand new possession group.

The 2024 nominations are a mixture of the predictable (armfuls of nods for Barbie, Oppenheimer, and Succession), and full of some characteristically inscrutable Golden Globes decisions (why on the planet is Previous Lives nominated as a “Non-English Language” movie?). With the nominees formally out, we’ve damaged down six of essentially the most notable storylines heading into Hollywood’s medium-est night time.

Previous Lives was nominated as a overseas movie.

Celine Music’s directorial debut Previous Lives is without doubt one of the 12 months’s greatest motion pictures, a young exploration of affection throughout cultures anchored by a mammoth Greta Lee efficiency. It’s additionally a movie primarily written in English and set in the USA, so the Globes’ determination to appoint it for “Greatest Image, Non-English Language” is just a little baffling. Music’s film additionally acquired nods in “Greatest Movement Image, Drama,” and a number of different main classes, so it’s not as if sneaking it into the non-English group was the one means for it to obtain some well-deserved recognition. Whereas the Korean dialogue within the film between Lee’s character and Teo Yoo’s is clearly massively vital to the plot, that’s largely as a result of it contrasts with the English-language scenes, capturing the push-and-pull between Lee’s character’s South Korean upbringing and her life in New York together with her husband. Add to that the truth that Previous Lives is an A24 manufacturing, and the entire thing simply looks as if a type of inscrutable Golden Globe decisions that makes much less sense the extra you concentrate on it.

The Succession household battle continues within the TV performing classes.

HBO’s Succession is all about members of the family attempting to get a leg up on each other, and that competitors will proceed because the present and its forged make their last awards run, with three nods apiece in “Greatest Efficiency by an Actor in a Tv Sequence, Drama” (Jeremy Robust, Kieran Culkin, and, curiously, Brian Cox) and “Greatest Supporting Actor, Tv” (Matthew Macfadyen, Alan Ruck, and Alexander Skarsgård), in addition to noms for Sarah Snook and J. Smith-Cameron. The choice to rely Cox as a lead in Succession is odd, provided that Logan Roy dies in simply the third episode of the season. His presence continues to loom giant, and Cox’s work because the fiery media titan and patriarch is a number of the better of his storied profession, however this looks as if a no brainer case to place him within the supporting class. Cox, Robust and Snook have all taken house Golden Globes already for his or her work on the present, and whereas actually not undeserving, it’d be thrilling if Culkin, Macfadyen, and Smith-Cameron earned {hardware}, as all three flip of their strongest performances within the present’s entire run throughout Season 4.
