2016 Golden Globe Nominations: Netflix De‑thrones HBO

The nominations for the 73rd Golden Globe Awards are here and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) has made some very interesting decisions this year, so let’s dive right in, shall we?

For the first time in Golden Globes history the most nominations in the TV section were grabbed by a streaming network – Netflix, which managed to top HBO with a total of 8 nominations. It goes without saying that the streaming revolution has finally reached HFPA, with Amazon getting 5 nods and even Hulu being mentioned. As for the shows, Empire, Game of Thrones, Mr. Robot, Narcos and Outlander will battle it out for the title of Best Drama, while Casual, Mozart in the Jungle, Orange is the New Black, Silicon Valley, Transparent and Veep are going head to head in the comedy section.

Moving on to the film nominations, Carol, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Revenant, Room and Spotlight all have a chance to be crowned winner in Best Motion Picture – Drama category, while The Big Short, Joy, The Martian, Spy and Trainwreck all grabbed their places in the comedy division. If we take a look at the actors, Leonardo DiCaprio finally has a big chance to dominate the entire awards season, however, he will have to beat Bryan Crantson, Michael Fassbender, Eddie Redmayne and Will Smith to end up going home with a golden globe. Cate Blanchett, Brie Larson, Rooney Mara, Saoirse Ronan and Alicia Vikander dominated the drama category, while Jennifer Lawrence, Melissa McCarthy, Amy Schumer, Maggie Smith and Lily Tomlin are the nominees in the comedy section.
