Netflix dominates 2021 Annual Golden Globe Awards nominations, we pick our winners

Netflix looks set to be the big winner at the 78th Annual Golden Globes, as it hauls in 42 nominations for its flagship series, including The Queen’s Gambit and The Crown, as well as movie offerings Mank and The Trial of the Chicago 7. Rival Amazon pockets ten nominations. 

This year’s nominations are interesting, a little controversial, and useful if you’re looking for recommendations of new shows to sample.

Lining up for honours in the motion picture drama category are The Trial of the Chicago 7, The Father, Mank, Nomadland and Promising Young Woman. In the  musical or comedy category  Hamilton squares off against Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Palm Springs, Music and The Prom.

In the drama category, genre favourites Lovecraft Country and The Mandalorian, face off against The Crown, Ozark and Ratched. Other TV noms include Emily in Paris, The Flight Attendant, The Great Schitt’s Creek and Ted Lasso

The full nominations list is below. We highlight our picks in bold, make of them what you will.

And then there’s the Golden Globe snubs. Notable for their absence in these 2021 nominations are Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, the BBC/HBO collab I May Destroy You and Ridley Scott’s Raised by Wolves. But the most egregious blanking has to be Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, which failed to win noms for Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, and Best Original Song.

Some love for The Boys wouldn’t have gone amiss either (admittedly that one might have been a bit of a stretch).

The Golden Globes will be announced on February 28, in a show hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

In the drama category, genre favourites Lovecraft Country and The Mandalorian, face off against The Crown, Ozark and Ratched…
