And the Podcast Goes To… Episode 2: Golden Globe Nominations, Snubs and Surprises
Another year, another wacky and uncertain awards season. Monday morning brought the 2017 Golden Globe nominations, including a handful of odd choices and snubs. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association was more wooed by Andrew Garfield’s performance in Hacksaw Ridge than Silence, giving the Mel Gibson war drama three nods and Martin Scorsese’s religious period piece zero. Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals got three nods (not including one for Michael Shannon’s critically praised performance), and Deadpool earned Best Picture and Best Actor nominations in the Comedy/Musical category. It will be a weird awards season indeed.
In our latest episode of ScreenCrush’s awards season podcast, And the Podcast Goes To…, editors Erin Whitney and Britt Hayes break down the Globe nominations, the recent Critics Choice Awards winners, and what it all means for the Oscars race ahead. On the TV side, Erin and Britt praise the HFPA’s choice to recognize Insecure‘s Issa Rae, question the lack of Judith Light love for Transparent, and discuss the organization’s penchant for nominating new TV series each year.
