2018 Golden Globe nominations and notable snubs – Film

The days which fall dark too soon and the gentle dustings of snow all serve as a harbinger of everyone’s favorite time of year: Award Season! On Monday, the nominations for the 75th Golden Globes, which will be hosted by Seth Meyers on Jan. 7, were announced. Though the Golden Globes include awards for both film and television, the former garner more attention because they typically predict the nominees and winners for the Academy Awards.


    • Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, “Lady Bird,” collected nominations in several categories; however, Gerwig’s impressive performance as a new director was left noticeably unrecognized.
    • Sufjan Stevens’ delicate orchestration in “Call Me By Your Name” also failed to score a nomination for Best Original Score.
    • Kumail Nanjiani’s comedy “The Big Sick” was well-received by both critics and audiences, yet it was completely ignored in all categories, most noticeably Best Original Screenplay.
    • Hollywood heavyweight Jake Gyllenhaal was shut out in the Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama category. “Stronger,” which depicts the 2013 Boston bombing, was seen as an obvious showcase for Gyllenhaal’s talent, though it performed only modestly at the box office.
    • Both Jordan Peele’s screenplay and directorial effort in “Get Out” were ignored, much to the shock and outrage of moviegoers and critics alike.
    • Box office success “Wonder Woman,” starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins, was shut out in every category.
