Okay, the Golden Globe nominations are in and there are some choices that make sense and some surprise snobs that have left me a bit stunned but overall, I’m pleased with the picks and am looking forward to seeing who wins.
In terms of the snubs, I was surprised to see Delroy Lindo not nominated for his role in Da 5 Bloods, or Chadwick Boseman for Best Supporting Actor in Da 5 Bloods as well. The movie was one of the best of the year, delivering some powerful performances and directing that once again highlighted Spike Lee’s impressive movie making skills.
Minari was subjected to the Foreign Language Film category even though the movie was made in America by an American director who’s telling an American story. But the main language of the movie is Korean so…
Regina King was nominated for Best Director for One Night in Miami which makes sense. Viola Davis apparently did a pretty good job in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, hence her nomination. And so on and so on.
I’ll have more thoughts about the nominations on the way as I begin to watch more of these nominated films like Mank and Sound of Metal next but for now, it’s movie award season baby!
(And by the way, yay for The Mandalorian‘s nomination for Best TV Series-Drama. It totally deserves it!!!!)
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
