The nominations for the 74th Golden Globes were announced this morning by Golden Globe winners Don Cheadle and Laura Dern, Anna Kendrick, this year’s Miss Golden Globe trio of Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet Stallone, along with Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Lorenzo Soria, and Barry Adelman, Executive VP of Television at Dick Clark productions.

La La Land landed a field-best seven nominations this morning from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, including Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical, Director and for its leads, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. The film scored eight wins last night from the Critics’ Choice Awards.

Critical favorites Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea earned six and five nominations, respectively. Nominees Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) and Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea) won their categories at last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards.

Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge did well with the Golden Globes, earning three top mentions including Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director. Hell or High Water also got three nominations: Motion Picture – Drama, Supporting Actor for Jeff Bridges and Screenplay.

Florence Foster Jenkins grabbed four nominations, the expected ones – Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical, Actress (Streep), Actor (Grant) but also a big surprise with the mention of Simon Helberg in Supporting Actor.

Ryan Reynolds’ personal campaign to the Golden Globes paid off; he was nominated in Actor – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical as was his film, Deadpool, in the top category. This is a first for a Marvel superhero film with the Globes. There were more surprises in the Comedy or Musical categories with Jonah Hill (War Dogs) showing up, besting the likes of Hollywood legend Warren Beatty (Rules Don’t Apply) and Globe favorite Russell Crowe (The Nice Guys). Not to be outdone, the actress section found room for Lily Collins (Rules Don’t Apply) and Hailee Steinfeld (The Edge of Seventeen) over Globe favorite Renee Zellweger (Bridget Jones’s Baby) and Sally Field in Hello, My Name is Doris.

Not to be without at least one controversy per season, Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals received three nominations this morning, all of them quite surprising. One for supporting actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson (most had Michael Shannon as a possible here) but also two for Ford himself – in Screenplay and Directing. Ford was criticized for breaking the gift rules with the HFPA (I know, I know) by sending each member his personal fragrance. The members were all asked to return the gift. But not before nominating Ford, apparently.

A big snub today was Martin Scorsese and his passion project Silence. It wound up with zero mentions. I had heard the group was a bit cold on the film but the HFPA has been very kind to Scorsese in the past so the complete snub is still a bit of a surprise.

The winners of the 74th Golden Globes will be announced live on NBC Sunday, January 8th, 2017 with Jimmy Fallon hosting.
