It was a good morning for Netflix as Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story led the 2020 Golden Globe nominations for motion picture with six: Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Screenplay and three acting nominations (Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, Laura Dern) yet shockingly, missed Best Director.

Two of Netflix’s other big drama efforts, The Irishman and The Two Popes, also scored top nominations across lead and supporting acting, best picture and best screenplay. Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite and Todd Phillips’ Joker all performed well, earning best picture (or foreign language film) and best director nominations.

On the comedy side, Knives Out earned three nominations (including Ana de Armas for comedy actress) and Jojo Rabbit grabbed two, including one for Rowan Griffin Davis in best actor. Awkwafina (The Farewell) was among the best actress contenders along with Cate Blanchett, Emma Thompson, and Beanie Feldstein.

The Golden Globes awarded Bohemian Rhapsody (Drama) and Green Book (Musical/Comedy) with its Best Picture wins in 2019. The latter went on to win the Oscar for Best Picture. The four acting Oscar winners – Rami Malek, Olivia Colman, Mahershala Ali, and Regina King – all won Golden Globes first.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which puts on the Golden Globes, is made up of 90 journalists from around the world.
