Here Are the Golden Globe Nominees, Including ‘Moonlight,’ ‘La La Land,’ and ‘Westworld’

Everyone make sure you’re sitting down — because yet another tepidly amusing ceremony that’ll reduce a year in amazing films into a sports-like competition has just announced its nominees! And for the most part, they’re wholly unsurprising! (Though for many, certainly not undeserved!) Firmly in those seats? Okay.

This year’s arguably most critically beloved films — Moonlight and La La Land (both of which won some big awards at the Critics’ Choice Awards last night, though some — er, me — may argue that Moonlight should have won Best Picture over La La — before remembering, of course, that perhaps movies so good and stirring shouldn’t need the clunky approval of a statue, and what should be reflected on are the films and their impact/thought provocation — but, also, hell, it really should’ve won) — have gotten a lot of attention from the very small pool of nominators over at the Hollywood Foreign Press. And perhaps because the Golden Globes are famously subdivided into comedy/musical and drama categories, both could end up winning big. La La Land is nominated for seven awards, including Best Picture, Musical or Comedy, Best Actor/Actress awards for stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, and Best Director and Screenplay awards. Meanwhile, Moonlight earned six nominations including Best Picture, Drama, Best Director and Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor for Mahershala Ali.

And now I will take a moment to indulge in talking about a couple exciting choices in the TV section, before attempting objectivity and regurgitating the whole list without commentary here. Arguably one of the best performances on TV this year — Thandie Newton’s show-stealing role as Maeve on Westworld — has been given a Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Limited Series or TV Series nomination. This is particularly exciting, given that Westworld is still a relatively new phenomenon, and given that, perhaps with GoT as a trailblazer, these awards ceremonies no longer seem like genre snobs. (Though if that were fully true, Arrival would have gotten a Best Picture nomination.) Speaking of which, Winona Ryder received a nomination for Best Actress in a TV series, Drama, for mostly crying at Christmas lights in the (very wonderful) Stranger Things and Evan Rachel Wood is up for her multifaceted robo-anti-ingenue character on Westworld. AND three of the dramas nominated for Best Drama Series are indeed genre picks — Westworld, Game of Thrones, and Stranger Things, while the two non-sci-fi shows nominated (This Is Us, The Crown) seem like they were thrown in for filler.

Beyond genre, Riz Ahmed is also nominated for Best Actor in a TV Movie or Limited Series for his transformational role in The Night Of, Matthew Rhys is nominated for Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama — which will give The Americans perhaps another chance to lose to lesser shows, as it seems wont to do at  awards ceremonies — and Donald Glover is nominated for Best Actor in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy for Atlanta (which is also nominated for best series in that category.)

And as far as choices that undermine the validity of the whole pageant go: Deadpool was nominated for Best Picture, Musical or Comedy.
