Nominations announced for 75th Golden Globe Awards

- -

The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards will take place on January 7, 2018 honouring the best in film and television.

Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water leads with 7 nominations, while close behind with 6 is The Post and Three Billboard’s Outside Ebbing, Missouri.  Among the surprise nominations include Christopher Plummer who just finished filming his role as J. Paul Getty two weeks ago,  Denzel Washington in the relatively poorly received Roman J Israel, Esq, and The Boss Baby in the Animated Feature category.

The painted film Loving Vincent gets a welcome nomination for Best Animated Feature, while Jordan Peele is conspicuously absent from a  Best Original Screenplay nomination. On the TV side of things, HBO leads with 12 nominations aided by the likes of Big Little Lies and Game of Thrones while streaming giant Netflix comes in second with 9 nods. Here are your nominees:
