2018 Golden Globe film nominations: who got nominated & who got snubbed?

Met Gala 2016 - 'Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology'

It’s time for that annual debate about whether the Golden Globes are actually a harbinger of the Oscars. I think that debate needs to end – the Globes clearly do a lot to define the races, and in recent years, the Globes are steadily predicting like 90% of the eventual Oscar nominations. The debate this year is more about… how Oscar campaigns need to change and are changing post-Weinstein. That’s a discussion for another time though. Here are the Globe nominations in the film categories, and once again, I’m only doing the big ones. Just FYI: Angelina Jolie’s First They Killed My Father got nominated for Best Foreign Film! Good.

“The Disaster Artist”
“Get Out”

Mary J. Blige, “Mudbound”

I can’t wait to see the The Florida Project, it looks SO GOOD. I’m not surprised by many of these, I guess? I think Jordan Peele deserved a directing nomination and I wonder if The Post is going to hold up so well in the next two months. I’m surprised by the amount of love for All the Money in the World, which I know will not hold up in two months. Much love for The Shape of Water, much love for Lady Bird, much love for I, Tonya, all of which was predicted. Good.

    Jordan Peele truly created an original masterpiece that will stand the test of time.

  2. Ib says:

    Bummed not to see anything for big sick :/

  3. NeexKC says:

    If Disaster Artist wins best “Comedy” over Get Out I won’t be shocked but I’ll be very angry.

  4. Surely Wolfbeak says:

    Does not bode well for diversity come oscartime.

  5. Jussie says:

    The Greatest Showman stole The Big Sick’s spot!

    I wonder if all the noms for All The Money In The World are a show of support for what they did in replacing Spacey. Before all that the word was that film wasn’t quite stacking up against other contenders, so it’s surprising to see it get so many nominations.

  6. Guest says:

    Where the hell is Gyllenhaal?

  7. OSTONE says:

    I loved the big sick! Hated that it got snubbed!

  8. third ginger says:

    Are most of the nominees in there. Yes. The biggest difference is the divide between Comedy and Drama for the Globes. So what tedious people like me [awards junkies] do is try to pick what actors make the final 5 in Oscar categories. Next up is SAG noms, which winnow down the nominees, then there is bound to be at least one surprise with Oscar noms.

  9. Umyeah says:

    Three billboards is an amasing film and Frances is unreal in it

  10. Iknowwhatboyslike says:

    As someone who’s first cassette tape purchase was Mary J. Blige’s What’s the 411? I can’t tell you how proud I am to say, “Golden Globe nominee, Mary J. Blige.” Congratulations, Mary!

  11. Joss RED says:

    Wow, Ansel Elgort is now a Golden Globe nominated actor…

  12. lightpurple says:

    Is Ansel’s performance in Baby Driver considered a Comedy/Musical because of the Soundtrack?

    Three Billboards should be in comedy – that’s one of the darkest comedies I’ve ever seem and I was laughing through most of it. Frances was brilliant; as was Sam Rockwell.

  13. Moeketsi says:

    I honestly just came to see if Angelina’s movie was nominated and when Kaiser announced it at the top #Amazing

  14. Maya says:

    And yet again – no female directors are nominated even though I can think of 3 who should be on that list.

    Well done to Angelina and co. Angelina’s the Breadwinner is also nominated so Angelina is up for two awards that evening.

  15. jeebus says:

    I’m confused. How is Get Out a musical or comedy? Am I missing something here?

  16. island_girl says:

    Stinks that Call Me By Your Name has only one nomination. I know that Armie isn’t popular around here, but I like him and I’m glad at least he was nominated. Too bad Timothy wasn’t.

  17. Mary says:

    Lady Bird was great. She did so great its amazing she is so young. She WAS lady burd

  18. monette says:

    Not much has changed. The list for best director is The usual suspects: Ridley Scott, Spielberg and Nolan. Where are Peele and Gerta??
    The list for best actor in a drama, the same.
    F this sheeet!

  19. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Ridley Scott’s nomination should have gone to Jordan Peele for Get Out.

  20. Kaiser says:

    HAHAHA Kate Winslet didn’t get nominated!!

  21. FishBeard says:

    I hope James Franco brings Tommy Wiseau as his date!

    No Winslet and no JLaw, two of the hardest campaigners in year.

  22. Lucy says:

    Currently having a case of the sads because I was expecting IT. to get at least one nod. Huh. Also, who the eff nominated Elgort??

  23. nicegirl says:

    I am just so sad about “Mother!”


  24. sb says:

    Call me by your name snubbed for best director (Luca Guadagnino), Best Song (Mystery of Love or Visions of Gideon) to what? make room for the overproduced songs on The Greatest Showman? I really think those songs deserve to be in the running and to be strong contenders instead of that sappy shit.

    Michael Stuhlbarg snubbed but whatever you can only fit in so many :/
    Glad Timothee and Armie got nominations though and I hope Timothee can take it home and not have this shit be about the politics of giving it to Daniel Day Lewis for his ‘last performance’ or Gary Oldman because he’s **long overdue**, such bs…it’s so clear he’s oscar baiting/overacting. Historical figure? Winston Churchill really? How original.

    Greta Gerwig snubbed for best director, what a joke

    Frustrated to see Ridley/Spielberg up there again, yeah they’re legends but their best work is behind them let’s be real. They have no new perspective to offer anymore. Looking forward to the post they are just rehashing the same old shit tbh.

  25. Tallia says:

    SO glad Mary J. Blige was recognized. She was amazing.

  26. Parigo says:

    No Greta Gerwig? That just pisses me off.

  27. Bishg says:

    Why does the director race always has to be an absolute penis-fest?

  28. lascivious chicken says:

    Shape of Water deserves to win everything, as does Disaster Artist.

  29. manta says:

    Well, I haven’t seen the movie,so it’s not a personal opinion, but some of my friends are a little bit disappointed that there was no love for Girls trip and especially Tiffany Haddish.

  30. Nic919 says:

    Outside of del Toro and Nolan, the other director noms could easily be replaced with Jordan Peele, Greta Gerwig and Patti Jenkins.
    I don’t know if All the Money is any good, but the Christopher Plummer nomination is actually kind of funny.

  31. jammypants says:

    No Greta Gerwig for Best Director? All men again…

  32. BaBaDook says:

    So happy to see The Florida Project on here! It’s heartbreaking. A little sad not to see The Big Sick or Patti Cake$ though.

  33. perplexed says:

    Kate Winslet seems to have been snubbed (I think?).

    2017 has been such a disastrous and depressing year because of Trump, this is the first year I have no awareness of what’s going on in film.

  34. Cali says:

    Happy to see so many for Three Billboards. I saw it last week and loved it. It was hard to place in a category. It’s got a lot of deeply dark humor, but it’s also very serious, too. It was just so good and twisty.

  35. Frosty says:

    It’s a pipe dream, but I would have loved to see Baahubali 2 nominated for, like, Best Action Picture. They need some new categories to ease the pressure of only having Drama, Comedy or Musical.

  36. Ozogirl says:

    The same ol’ list of actors. I’ll be rooting for Hugh and Mary though!

  37. ZoeM says:

    The Florida Project was one of my favorite films this year.

  38. truth hurts says:

    Get Out is the dark horse and I feel it should get the same recognition of a Moonlight which was not Best Picture. Such a better film. Good for FTKMF because all of the Jealous witches that flew in here saying she won’t get nominated for nothing because of Pitt can stick it.

  39. Abby says:

    Cray to me that Christopher Plummer got a nomination for a movie he just joined like, yesterday. Crazy!

  40. serena says:

    I really want Steve Carell and Hugh Jackman to win.. too bad they’re in the same category.

  41. poop says:

    Did we see the same movie? Get Out was a fun movie but I wouldn’t say it was anything out of the ordinary.

  42. Olivia says:

    I cant stomach “this is Us” and Im mad it takes the place of any show especially the leftovers

    • TotallyOld says:

      Agree about “this is us”. So sappy and unoriginal. Also, “wonder wheel” is perhaps one of the worst movies I’ve ever had the displeasure to see. I have no idea what I was thinking when I was persuaded to see that clunker. Kate Winslet was screechy as hell and I can’t remember when an actress’s portrayal in a movie annoyed me more. So happy Woody & Kate didn’t get anything.

  43. jello says:

    Only if the super-hero genre was taken seriously by these awards. Wonder woman deserved a nomination and you could see how hard Patty worked on it

  44. Kyra says:

    All male directors, mostly white actors. It’s like they’re not even trying.

  45. becoo says:

    I loved Baby Driver, and no doubt Ansel perfectly captured “Baby,” but was that a surprise since Baby was basically a cool white dude? That slot was a missed opportunity to showcase someone not previously recognized.
