The snubs and studs of the Golden Globe nominees

The awards season kicks off with the 78th annual Golden Globes that will focus on TV shows and series that helped people get through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Golden Globes will air on February 28 for a night celebrating beloved TV shows and movies.

The Golden Globes 2021 will honor 25 categories with some returning stars and newcomers to the awards event. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the nominees with the streaming services including Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime contending against the declining box office.

With more people opting to stay home, streaming services have some of the most-watched series and movies dominating the nominee list in nearly every category. Another newcomer to the Golden Globes is the new streaming platforms HBO Max, Disney+, and Apple TV Plus.

Disney+ was nominated for the popular Star Wars series “The Mandalorian” for Best Drama Television Series also receiving nods for movie productions. Diseny+ was nominated for Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture for “Hamilton” as well as receiving two Best Animated Motion Picture “Onward” and “Soul.”

HBO Max is nominated for Best Musical or Comedy Television Series for “The Flight Attendant,” Best Drama Television Series for “Lovecraft County,” and Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for “The Undoing.”

Despite the good news for the streaming services, there were some popular TV shows and movies that were shockingly snubbed. The popular debut Netflix series “Bridgerton” wasn’t nominated for a single award.

Another popular Netflix series “Ratched” wasn’t considered a hit with the critics but landed three nominees for Best Drama Television Series, Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama Television Series for lead Sarah Paulson, and Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) overlooked critically acclaimed movies including Spike Lee’s “Da Five Bloods” and Zendaya’s latest film “Malcolm & Marie” which received rave reviews from critics. The Golden Globes isn’t guaranteeing any veterans a nomination including Tom Hanks who was snubbed for his Apple+ film “Greyhound” and his new film “News of the World” that was nominated for two other Golden Globe awards.

Another veteran that was snubbed was Meryl Streep for her performance in “The Prom” but her co-star, James Cordon, was nominated for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Motion Picture. “The Prom” was also nominated for Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture but will be competing against the popular Broadway musical “Hamilton.”

A unique nominee is for the Sia debut film “Music” with two nominations for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy picture for leading actress Kate Hudson and Best Musical or Comedy Motion Picture. You can check out the full list of nominees here.

Make sure to watch the star-studded event on February 28 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
