Golden Globes noms: Aussies honoured, and controversial omissions

Nominations for the 78th Golden Globes have been announced, with Netflix cleaning up, nods for Australian actors – and some notable exclusions.

The nominees for the 78th Golden Globes have been announced, and after a year of pandemic, it seems the era of streaming is well and truly here. Netflix alone picked up over 40 nominations across categories for Mank, The Queen’s Gambit, Ozark, Ratched, and, controversially, Emily in Paris, which had been universally critically panned. The fluffy sitcom, which follows a fashion buyer who is given the opportunity to move to France picked up a nomination for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy, and leading lady Lily Collins got the nod for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy, alongside Catherine O’Hara, Jane Levy, Elle Fanning, and Kaley Cuoco.
