Here Are The Nominations For The 2016 Golden Globes


The Hollywood Foreign Press announced the nominees for the 73rd annual Golden Globe Awards, which will take place January 10. The absolute winner this morning was Todd Haynes’ ‘’Carol,’’ earning five nominations, including nods for best drama, actresses Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, director Haynes and its score.

The ‘’Big Short, ’’The Revenant’’ and ‘’Steve Jobs’’ each earned four nominations while ‘’The Martian’’ received three important nods: best comedy or musical, actor Matt Damon and director Ridley Scott. Despite this initial recognition, there’s still much controversy surrounding the decision to place the movie in the comedy and musical division.

Of course, like every year, the nominations surprised many. Swedish actress Alicia Vikander was nominated for best actress for her role in ‘’The Danish Girl’’ and also received a nomination for supporting actress for her performance in ‘’Ex Machina.’’ Mark Rylance was nominated for his performance in ‘’Bridge of Spies’’ as well as for his role in the TV miniseries ‘’Wolf Hall.’’ Amy Schumer was also thrilled to learn she earned a best actress nomination for her performance in ‘’Trainwreck,’’ which also earned a nomination for best comedy or musical.

  • “Carol” — 5
  • “The Big Short,” “The Revenant,” “Steve Jobs” — 4
