Golden Globes 2020 nominations: Tobias Menzies, Jodie Comer, and more

Bright and early this morning, NBC announced the official Golden Globes nominations, and let’s just say that it wasn’t the best morning ever for network TV. While we’ll go into a list of specific snubs later, there isn’t any love here really at all for any broadcast networks … ironic, given that the show airs on one. Instead, programs like The Morning Show, Succession, and Big Little Lies largely took center stage as the Hollywood Foreign Press sided with big-name stars over more traditional TV fare.

Check out the nominations below, with a few little reactions spread throughout.

Drama Series

Big Little Lies
The Crown
Killing Eve
The Morning Show

Quick Take: Did anyone else feel like Big Little Lies season 2, performances aside, wasn’t that great?

Drama Actor

Brian Cox, Succession
Kit Harington, Game of Thrones
Rami Malek, Mr. Robot
Tobias Menzies, The Crown
Billy Porter, Pose

Drama Actress

Jennifer Aniston, The Morning Show
Olivia Colman, The Crown
Jodie Comer, Killing Eve
Nicole Kidman, Big Little Lies
Reese Witherspoon, The Morning Show

Comedy Series

The Kominsky Method
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The Politician

Comedy Actress

Christina Applegate, Dead to Me
Rachel Brosnahan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Kirsten Dunst, On Becoming a God in Central Florida
Natasha Lyonne, Russian Doll
Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Fleabag

Nice nod in here for Dunst, someone who we didn’t have listed as someone we seriously expected to garner attention.

Comedy Actor

Michael Douglas, The Kominsky Method
Bill Hader, Barry
Ben Platt, The Politician
Paul Rudd, Living With Yourself
Ramy Youssef, Ramy

Consider Rudd’s nomination more evidence that playing against yourself as an actor is a great way to get a nod.

TV Movie/Miniseries

The Loudest Voice

TV Movie/Miniseries Actor

Christopher Abbott, Catch-22
Sacha Baron Cohen, The Spy
Jared Harris, Chernobyl
Russell Crowe, The Loudest Voice
Sam Rockwell, Fosse/Verdon

TV Movie/Miniseries Actress

Kaitlyn Dever, Unbelievable
Joey King, The Act
Helen Mirren, Catherine the Great
Merritt Wever, Unbelievable
Michelle Williams, Fosse/Verdon

In between Tim Allen’s presence this morning and Dever’s nomination, Last Man Standing was a part of the Globes this morning on two different occasions.

Supporting Actor

Alan Arkin, The Kominsky Method
Kieran Culkin, Succession
Andrew Scott, Fleabag
Stellan Skarsgard, Chernobyl
Henry Winkler, Barry

Remember that the Globes lump every genre into the same category — it’s awful. Yet, clearly they aren’t changing it.

Supporting Actress

Patricia Arquette, The Act
Helena Bonham Carter, The Crown
Toni Collette, Unbelievable
Meryl Streep, Big Little Lies
Emily Watson, Chernobyl
