The 2016 Golden Globe Nominations Announced!

Carol_Poster2_FINALRicky Gervais is back to host the 2016 Golden Globes after the 3 year high of Tina Fey/Amy Poehler smashing it as we learn of all the nominees this morning. Todd Haynes’ Carol leads the pack with 5 nods and, quite rightly, Rooney Mara is up for Best Actress – Drama alongside Cate Blanchett. In all other award shows Mara has been placed in Best Supporting Actress, giving her better odds of winning, considering hers is the main character of the film, it’s more of a marketing decision than anything. Mad Max: Fury Road gets up for 2 nods with Best Film and Director for George Miller. You cannot count Max out come Oscars time and I definitely think Miller is the front runner for Best Director at this point in the race. The Big Short also nabs 4 gongs for Best Film – Musical/Comedy, Dual Best Actor – Comedy (Christian Bale, Steve Carell) and Best Screenplay. Most notably missing from the race is Suffragette, which you would’ve thought Carey Mulligan was a lock for a Best Actress – Drama nod.

TV sees the comedy series flush with the usual suspects Transparent, Orange Is The New Black, Veep, Casual and Mozart In The Jungle whilst drama sees Narcos, Mr Robot, Empire, Game Of Thrones and Outlander take the top spots.
