2016 Golden Globe Award Nominations Announced

Award season has now been turned up a further notch thanks to the unveiling of the 2016 Golden Globe Award nominations!

The Hollywood Foreign Press loves a big star-studded event and has made sure a host of well known names and fresh newcomers were added to this years bill.

Acclaimed favourites such as Cate Blanchett (Carol), Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl), Jennifer Lawrence (Joy), Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs), Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs) and Bryan Cranston (Trumbo) all receive their predicated nominations for the work this year.

However most have to fight of tough newcomers/breakthrough performances from the likes of Brie Larson (Room), Amy Schumer (Trainwreck), Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl, Ex Machina) and Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn).

Hollywood legends including Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Sylvester Stallone and Al Pacino all make welcome returns into the motion picture categories. Whereas HFP favourites including Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Helen Mirren and Will Smith are all hoping to add more awards to their accolades.

The big question on everyones lips is whether this is Leonardo Dicaprio’s year? He is once again nominated, this time for his role in ‘The Revenant‘. Having already won two Golden Globe’s in the past, things are already looking good for the Hollywood superstar and will no doubt excite his passionate fan base if he starts receiving more award traction as the season progresses…

Things are looking even more interesting in the television categories. Lady Gaga can now add the title Golden Globe-nominee to her achievements for her role in ‘American Horror Story: Hotel‘. Her category Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television sees her nominated alongside Queen Latifah, Felicity Huffman, Kirsten Dunst and Sarah Hay.

Taraji P. Henson is once again the sole actor representing ‘Empire‘ in the Drama acting categories. However the show overall did receive a Best Television Series – Drama nomination, which it failed to do a both this years Emmy’s and the upcoming SAG Awards.

Aziz Ansari goes up against his former ‘Parks and Recreation‘ co-star Rob Lowe in the Best Television Comedy Actor category for his role in the Netflix original series ‘Master of None‘. Rob Lowe is nominated for his performance in FOX comedy ‘The Grinder‘.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is hoping to finally win a Golden Globe for her performance as Selina Meyer in HBO’s critically acclaimed ‘Veep‘. Despite winning every other award manageable for her work on the series she has failed to win the Globe (though she has won before for her work on Seinfeld). The good news is that 2016 marks the first time that ‘Veep‘ has been nominated for the Golden Globe – Musical or Comedy series award, meaning that the Hollywood Foreign Press are finally warming to the show!

Despite hosting the award show for the last three years both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been left of the nomination list. Tina’s ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘ failed to receive any nominations and Amy’s work on the final series of ‘Parks and Recreation‘ wasn’t enough to return her to the list. But it’s not all doom and gloom for Amy as ‘Inside Out‘ received a nomination for Best Animated Feature Film.

Regina King continues her award momentum by receiving her first Golden Globe nomination for her work on ‘American Crime‘. She has already won an Emmy this year for her work on the series and on top of all that she recently received even more acclaim for her role on ‘The Leftovers‘. It sure is good to be Regina King at the moment!!!

Rami Malek was also able to breakthrough this year for his work on USA’s ‘Mr. Robot‘ and Idris Elba celebrates two nominations (Beasts of No Nation and Luther). Will Queen Latifah finally win a deserved award for her performance in ‘Bessie‘ or will she be blocked by the likes of Kirsten Dunst for her comeback performance in season 2 of ‘Fargo‘? Or will Gaga be able to go all the way?

The 73rd Golden Globe Awards will air live on January 10, 2016 on NBC and will be hosted once again by Ricky Gervais.
