The 2024 Golden Globe nominations are here: who got snubbed?

The 2024 Golden Globes nominations were announced today, and I guess that means that the Globes are back to being a real event? TBD. The Globes will air on January 7th on CBS, from 8 pm to 11 pm. Considering how many friggin’ awards they have to give out, I bet the show goes over by an hour, easily. In any case, the SAG-AFTRA strike really shook up the Oscar campaigns, and weirdly, it does feel like people are simply judging movies and performances on their merit, rather than how much promotion was done. That being said, Bradley Cooper’s Maestro got nominated for a bunch of awards, so the HFPA is probably still getting payoffs. Here are the film nominees (I’m only including the two big TV nominees):

It’s nice to see Lily Gladstone as Best Actress, it’s nice to see so much love for May December (although no nomination for Todd Haynes). I’ve heard terrible things about Saltburn so I wonder if that one will stand up throughout the season. Lots of love for Barbenheimer and I would assume that those two films are the front-runners in the awards season. Notably, no nomination for Halle Bailey for The Little Mermaid? I’m glad Jeffrey Wright is getting love though! Also: My big TV prediction is that Succession sweeps every award it’s up for.

    The Last of Us! Hopefully that means some fabulous Pedro fashion

    • Laura says:

      Omg yes. I have my Knee-chain (Pedro Pascal keychain of his Met Gala knee) ready to watch the fashion.

  2. MaryContrary says:

    May-December is considered a comedy?!? I’ve only watched the first 20 minutes but there’s nothing funny about it. Ick.

    • RMS says:

      I loathed May December and the only performance I found worthy was the male lead, Charles Melton. It’s so NOT a comedy. It was my most hated movie until I watched Leave the World Behind and now I want those 2+ hours back!

      • Javagirl1 says:

        Right? May December was not entertaining at all. I just don’t get the hype.

      • Maria says:

        Agree. May/December was very disturbing and I didn’t care for any of the actors performances.

      • Quackadilly Blip says:

        Lol – same!

      • Call_Me_AL says:

        NOT a comedy for me AT ALL. I understand how the comedy was purported to be delivered but it didn’t land for me. Still it was riveting.

      • blue says:

        It’s more of a tragedy. I watched the whole thing & there is nothing “comic” about it. Moore’s character is delusional & there’s nothing funny about Portman’s manipulative, stalker-ish role.

    • AmyB says:

      Yes, isn’t that movie loosely based on the scandal with Mary Kay Letourneau?? How is that considered a comedy – I have not seen the film but I can’t see how that material is humorous.

      Anytime I read about that case, it left me deeply disturbed, especially for her victim Vili Fualaau.

      • CC says:

        That’s the plot??? I thought the May December romance was between Portman and Moore!

      • Tiffany:) says:

        The trauma done to the victim is a big part of the movie. I think it supposed to be satire and points out how society consuming the story for entertainment value also does harm.

        I don’t think you’re supposed to like most of the characters. It’s a challenging movie for sure.

      • Christina says:

        The movie was awful and excruciating to watch, but the bright spot was Charles Melton’s heartbreaking performance. It was like a car wreak that I couldn’t turn away from. And the performances from the actors playing the adult kids was really good. I guess the Hollywood types found the exploiting women who were the focus of the film, Portman’s actress and Moore’s Letourno-style character, funny. And they must have found Melton’s obsequiousness to the Moore character funny, too.

        Nothing about that film made me laugh. It made my heart break for the characters who were playing the real people who were victimized: the Letourno kids and Vili Felou. Those performances were nuanced and beautiful. Even the actor who play’s Moore’s messed up son. That actor was over the top, but, if you know kids who are products of a sociopath, they have a hard time with their anger into early adulthood many times. Sometimes for a large portion of their lives. My daughter’s father was a narcissistic sociopath. She is fine now, but she acted the same way.

        This movie is not a comedy.

      • terra says:

        @Christina, I’m right there with you entirely.

        I kept hearing it described as a dark comedy, but that didn’t come across to me at all either. And I didn’t particularly enjoy Natalie Portman or Julianne Moore in their roles (honestly, I’ve never found Portman all that compelling). Charles Melton was the one who stuck out to me as well. The big scene between he and Julianne Moore, I found him vastly more compelling than I did her. The bit where he comes home with takeout and the way he visibly deflates when he hears Moore’s character crying upstairs? Yeah, as the daughter of a narcissist that spoke directly to me, knowing that now you have no choice but to cater to someone else’s tantrum lest you be punished for inaction.

        I’ve never seen him in anything before this – I’m more than a bit outside of Riverdale’s demographic – and I wasn’t expecting much, but I’m happy to see him nominated, even if the Globes are traditionally a nothingburger of an awards show.

    • SarahLee says:

      That was my thought too! There is nothing funny about May/December. Child predators and child rape are not haha topics.

      • Normades says:

        My bff just watched it recently and said it was such an odd movie and not in a good way. I’m just enjoying watching Charles’ `a star is born’ moment. It’s usually something that is reserved for young women like Jennifer Lawrence while the male nominees are seasoned players that people think are “due”. But last year we had Austin Butler who broke out and this year it’s Charles.

    • JJ says:

      May-December was awful! Don’t try to watch the rest of it. It doesn’t get better.

    • Lux says:

      I liked it, but it has even less comedic elements than “American Beauty,” which I consider a brilliant drama. It’s like an “August: Osage County,” “The Ice Storm,” or “Spencer”…one of those more poignant, dialogue/atmosphere heavy films. I love those.

      • AC says:

        For May December, I’m here for it because of Charles Melton’s performance. I’ve also watched him in other shows/movies for a couple years now and have always been a fan. I’m glad he’s getting more buzz and recognition now.

    • Doug says:

      I was just going to comment and say the same thing… are the GG’s for real putting “May December” in this category???

      By the way… I thought it was great!!

  3. Carol says:

    “I’ve heard terrible things about Saltburn so I wonder if that one will stand up throughout the season. ”

    So what have you heard? I don’t know if I should see it or not.

    • AlpineWitch says:

      Read the reviews on The Guardian. To me it describes a lot of stereotypes about wealthy and upper class people, and how they view the plebs. Many people only watch it for its graphic depictions of unhinged s*x….

      • Cecil says:

        I actually really enjoyed Saltburn! It’s a very specific sort of class send up and satire, and, as AlpineWitch said, does have several scenes of not quite graphic (you never see anything explicit, except for near the end in a nude scene, not a sex scene) sex scenes that are more about making clear the grotesque imbalance between the upper class in England and those desperate to be part of it than about titillating its viewers. It is bonkers, but it is also a very beautifully shot and incredibly well acted film. It’s definitely not for everyone, so if you’re on the fence, I would read reviews (actively spoil yourself) and decide. There was definitely a lot of uncomfortable laughter in my theater, as people were not quite prepared for the film! And it is a black comedy, so laughing is not out of place. But Rosamund Pike is incredible, and so is Barry Keoghan, and Jacob Elordi is doing exactly what he should be doing in this film.

  4. Bettyrose says:

    I’m still waiting for all those films on streaming, but the showdown between Last of Us and Succession is real. That is a tough call (I love me some
    Morning Show but it’s not in the same league of writing).

  5. Jais says:

    Jennifer Lawrence for no hard feelings? Really? No shade intended but was her performance that good in it? Were there really no other comedy performances that couldn’t have earned that spot? I didn’t see it so if it was really that good and warranted a nom lemme know.

    • Nikomikaelx says:

      I think she was great, and it was one of my favourite comedies this year. Cheesy early 2000 vibes.
      And i saw that critics loved her in it too, so not suprised by the nomination.

    • Campbell says:

      She was fine. I like Jennifer Lawrence but not award worthy in Hard Feelings. Golden Globes often nominate who they want to attend.

      • Normades says:

        Yea they nominate the big stars just so they show up. I remember that one year they nominated both Johnny Depp and Angelia Jolie for that awful movie they did together.

    • lucy2 says:

      I thought she was good in it, but I wouldn’t have expected award nominations for it.
      I’m rooting for all things Barbie for comedy.

    • Sass says:

      It was fine, not at all awards worthy. Just a generic surface raunch com. Some funny moments, some good points made, the male protagonist can sing. But very surface level relationships and not a believable start to the main characters’ relationship.

    • Jayna says:

      I thought Jennifer Lawrence was really good in the movie, but Andrew Barth Feldman was great. I love him in it. That movie worked because of him. It was a good movie, not a great movie.

  6. nikomikaelx says:

    Happy For Charles Melton, and everyone connected to Past lives.

    How is The morning show still nominated for anything? I mean i love it, but it is so cheesy and borderline soap opera at this point.
    Jury duty, the bear or abbot would all be deserving winners.

  7. Becks1 says:

    I haven’t seen a lot of these so I guess its time to get my movie watching started, lol. The Best Song category intrigues me. I think the Barbie songs are going to cancel each other out and it will be Lenny Kravitz or Bruce Springsteen. although I’m Just Ken……that song is so amazing lol. As is Dance the Night Away, but I think Ken is better in terms of relating to the movie, you know? (I don’t like Billie Eilish in general and did not like her barbie song.)

    • Kelly Sunshine says:

      It would be amazing for “I’m just Ken” to win the GG and/or Oscar for original song. It was first written as a joke, but I think it’s many peoples favourite part of the movie.

      • laurie says:

        Omg I can’t get that song out of my head!!! 😵‍💫. And “ I’m Just Pete “ is there with it lol.

  8. Kate says:

    Jennifer Lawrence over Halle Bailey is such a joke.

    • Grant says:

      Was Halle Bailey that good in the Little Mermaid? She has a beautiful singing voice but I think the live action Little Mermaid was kind of a nothingburger. Jennifer Lawrence actually gave a lovely, nuanced, comedic performance in No Hard Feelings, I’m glad she got nominated.

      • Kimmy says:

        Other than have beautiful singing voice, I felt like Halle Bailey had nothing to do in Little Mermaid. She was fine, but sorely under-used, IMO. Totally not her fault.

      • Grant says:

        @Kimmy — I completely agree. She did fine with the material she was given, which was not much. The whole remake was full of so much wasted potential IMO.

  9. mellie says:

    I’m waiting for Killers of the Flower Moon to stream….no way can I sit in the theater for 3 plus hours. I’ve heard pretty good things about it, great things about the cast, but that it didn’t need to be so lengthy.

  10. Holz says:

    Ryan Gosling was snubbed!

  11. Boxy Lady says:

    Loved May December! And while it had some funny parts, I wouldn’t consider it a comedy. Maybe it was submitted like that so it wouldn’t get lost in the shuffle of the dramatic film category?

  12. Penguin says:

    Who in their right mind nominated Timothy for that travesty of a film?

  13. girl_ninja says:

    Wow. Just one year of Golden Globes resistance and now folks are all in again? I didn’t watch last year and I won’t watch this year.

  14. Kirsten says:

    I really hope that Greta Gerwig wins Best Director for Barbie and Oppenheimer wins Best Film. Both her work and Nolan’s film are exceptional accomplishments, and what they did for theatre-going at a time when that was heavily stagnate should be taken into account.

    • Concern Fae says:

      And the great work Margot Robbie did as Barbie seems to be losing momentum as the awards season progresses. She got a nomination here, but for comedy. I hope Barbie doesn’t get shut out of actual awards, despite being such a breakthrough film. The fact that it’s not being recognized as such while all these dudely dude films are being fawned over is truly sad.

      And Maestro? I’m just ignoring films that all I’ve heard about them is Oscar buzz.

  15. BQM says:

    I’m fully on the Oppenheimer train especially for RDJ. So glad to see him sink his teeth into a pure dramatic role. Really for the first time since Zodiac. And The Holdovers was great! I’m still pulling for Cillian but Giamatti was fantastic. Wish Dominic Sessa (in his first role!) was on the list. I think actress is between Stone and Gladstone. But it’s a farce Annette Benning doesn’t have an Oscar yet.

  16. Pam says:

    Cringy that they consider May December a comedy. I also thought no hard feelings was a bit cringy too. Rich parents paying so
    Wine to hook up with their young son?! I also thought JL you really did that nude scene for THAT movie?!

  17. Eating Popcorn says:

    The Holdovers for Musical or Comedy? I have not seen a more depressing film since I watched May December last week. While the performances are powerful and great – it is absolutely not a comedy.

  18. pearlime says:

    Funny this isn’t mentioned: They also created two new awards (box office performance and TV comedian) and Swift scored a nomination in the former for the Eras movie. But with Barbie in the mix aswell it looks like a very competitive category.
    Also, yay Andrew Scott.

  19. Mrs. Smith says:

    I hated No Hard Feelings and I think JL is nominated by the HFPA because of her full frontal nudity in the film (which was totally unnecessary, especially for such a stupid low-stakes comedy). I couldn’t even finish watching it.

    I want to see May December since it was billed as a comedy, but seeing the comments here could change my mind. Maybe I’ll see it if it gets award attention after the GG.

  20. lucy2 says:

    I predict Succession will sweep for it’s final season.
    I wish What We Do in the Shadows and Rightgeous Gemstones would get more recognition.

    • ElleE says:

      I hope that Nic Cage wins because his acceptance speech will be wild. Also, he’s low-key Hollywood royalty, and it would be good to see him win this award.

      Emily Blunt is a good actress but I forgot she was even in that movie. And that’s all I’ll say about that category (ok not enough strong female actors to choose from this season!)

    • bettyrose says:

      Succession absolutely deserves all the awards. Last of Us has some great writing and acting, and episode 3 deserves an Oscar unto itself, but it has seasons to come. The death scene in Succession (I assume I’m not spoiling anything) was so raw and real. It really felt to me exactly what it’s like to get that news over the phone. Absolutely flawless, every second of it.

      • Twin Falls says:

        💯 agree re Succession.

        I’m looking forward to season two of the diplomat.

        Is The Bear a comedy? I watched one episode and thought it was hella intense.

      • bettyrose says:

        I think the Bear transcends category. Season One is fun, while intense, but Season Two is all things at once, spliced with moments of the absolutely surreal. I’m glad it’s not in the drama category, though, for that reason. It can’t win against more traditional drama formats.

  21. Emily says:

    I’m surprised America Ferrera isn’t wasn’t nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Her monologue was the heart of Barbie, the biggest movie of the year.

    • Christine says:

      I should have kept scrolling down. I completely agree with you, her character was the heart of Barbie, and she did a great job.

  22. Twin Falls says:

    Jodie Foster was great in Nyad.

  23. Case says:

    Guys, the HFPA doesn’t exist anymore. It was disbanded and the Globes are under new ownership. Todd Boehly acquired it.

    Thrilled about the May December noms. Natalie Portman and especially Charles Melton were outstanding in that film. It’s listed as a comedy not because it’s “funny,” but because it technically is a satire of American tabloid culture and how the true crime phenomenon was born from that.

    • Lens says:

      Yeah I heard that and my next question was why have the awards show still when before it was because they were foreign journalists voting (so different than the other award shows). It was seen as a joke because there were only 93 journalists and it was suspect how active some of them were. It was basically an award it was rumored you could buy especially the newcomer award. I’d like to know why it’s any more important
      Then the millions of critic award shows or guild awards. People
      Still are paying attention to them.

  24. Grant says:

    I really wish Rachel McAdams would have gotten a nom in Supporting Actress for her wonderful turn in Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. She was so fabulous and warm and heartbreaking all at once.

    • lucy2 says:

      This just reminded me I never saw that, and wanted to! I need someone to keep a list of films and occasionally remind me to watch something.

      • Grant says:

        GO SEE IT! It’s such a great film. The actress who plays Margaret did a great job and all of the supporting players were just fantastic, especially Kathy Bates and the fantastic Rachel McAdams. McAdams may have given my favorite supporting turn of the year.

  25. Lily says:

    Has anyone see Maestro with Bradley Cooper? Thoughts ?
    The performance from both Mulligan and Cooper was great but it feels like the movie was fast rushed and wraped within days.
    Why did Spielberg and Scorese in the process of the movie (as producers) for ?

  26. AC says:

    My husband and I just binged on Ted Lasso, I can’t believe we didn’t do that early on 😀(but then again we just subscribed to Apple TV plus). Have to take some time to watch Maestro this mth.

  27. Sasha says:

    Saltburn was delightful. Don’t let the pearl clutchers put you off. It’s beautifully shot, beautifully acted and wickedly camp. I’m going to watch it again!

  28. J.Ferber says:

    Twin Falls, You are absolutely right. Jodie Foster WAS wonderful in Nyad. She deserved a nomination, too.

  29. AC says:

    I think Jacob Elordi not getting nominated might be a bit of a snub. HW is now probably paying attention to those who have been a bit ungrateful of projects that humbly helped start their careers.

  30. Jayna says:

    May December is not a comedy, not a dark comedy, not a dramedy, not a tragicomedy. This is ludicrous, not a farce. There was not a smile to be had watching it. It was a psychological drama shot in a specific way by director Todd Haynes. So putting it in that category for the Golden Globes is absolutely wrong Satire? Nah.

    I am one of the ones who liked the movie and did some deep dives into interviews by the director, etc., and the scandal it was based on. Some say loosely based on. I say much more than loosely. I really thought about the movie afterward, about the character Joe.

  31. Hannah1 says:

    Any thoughts on Poor Things?
    That had such a huge push and now crickets
