It is that time of the year again! Nominations for the 75th Golden Globe Awards are all set to be unveiled on Monday, December 11 by Alfre Woodard, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Bell, and Sharon Stone in the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Beverly Hills, California. Lucky for us, the nominations will be shown LIVE on the goldenglobes.com website and their official Facebook handle.
The Golden Globes recognise excellence in the TV and film industry and are presented and chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which comprises of approximately 90 largely unknown international journalists, and hence, their accolades are definitely not representative of the entire industry. But the Globes are definitely instrumental in positioning projects in the minds of the Academy Awards’ voters.
As for the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony, it will air LIVE on January 7, 2018 from Beverly Hilton Hotel with host Seth Meyers. Coming back to the nominations, there are high chances that Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks’ The Post will predominate the nominations, considering the recognition received by the Steven Spielberg film at the National Board of Review Awards. Among other expected nominees are Get Out, Dunkirk, especially for the Best Director Award for Christopher Nolan, Call Me By Your Name, Lady Bird and Pixar’s Coco. In the television category, Emmy winning Big Little Lies and The Handmaid’s Tale have high chances but you never actually know with the Globes.
Also worth considering is the fact that the Golden Globes are going to be the first prominent platform yet to address the post-Weinstein situation. Following the revelations against Harvey Weinstein, a number of Hollywood personalities have been accused of sexual assault. And the HFPA have to be sensitive to the fact in their nominations and awards this year.
