La La Land tops Golden Globes nominations as Edgerton, Kidman and Hacksaw Ridge lead Australian presence

Earlier this morning, Don Cheadle, Laura Dern and Anna Kendrick announced the nominees of the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, with the musical La La Land – fresh from winning Best Film at the Critics Choice Awards – leading the pack with seven nominations, including Best Picture, Director and acting nods for Stone and Gosling.

Barry Jenkins’s acclaimed drama Moonlight – which has been a darling of the film festival circuit in recent months – sits right behind it with six nominations, and Kenneth Lonergan’s  Manchester By The Sea, starring Casey Affleck, has five. Florence Foster Jenkins was something of a surprise for many, garnering four nominations, as did Lion.

Of the Australians on the list, Mel Gibson‘s Hacksaw Ridge has received three nominations, including for Best Picture, Best Director (Gibson) and Best Actor (Andrew Garfield). Nicole Kidman enjoyed a nomination for Best Supporting Actress for Lion, and Joel Edgerton for Best Actor in Loving.

Meanwhile, the box office surprise smash Deadpool saw two nominations – rather remarkably – for Best Actor (Ryan Reynolds) and Picture (Comedy or Musical). Among the other pleasant surprises in the film categories was the inclusion of Colin Farrell for Best Actor in the much loved film The Lobster and Viggo Mortensen in Captain Fantastic. It may have also been easy to write off War Dogs as enjoying a fighting chance in this year’s award season, but Jonah Hill also enjoyed a nomination for his role in a film the warmly received film.

In the Television categories, Stranger Things and The Crown led a strong presence for Netflix, though HBO did as well as expected with the likes of The Night Of, Game of Thrones and Westworld all being strong contenders. Fans of the surprise hit Atlanta will be excited to see the Donald Glover led series was nominated for Best Drama Series and Best Actor for Glover, while The Night Manager also did well.

Of the surprising snubs, Pixar’s Finding Dory missed out on a nomination for Best Animated Feature, making it one of the first years without a Pixar film in the category in recent memory – though Disney was more than well represented by Zootopia and Moana. Others may be more surprised, however, to see a film like Trolls in the category, however, in place of other, better reviewed animated films this year – including Sausage Party, which many were hoping to see recognised here.

Martin Scorsese’s Silence was snubbed completely (though don’t rule it out for the Oscars) as was Tom Hanks’ performance in Sully, which many expected to enjoy a Best Actor nomination.

It was also revealed that Jimmy Fallon will host the ceremony on January 8th in Los Angeles; the first time that Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey or Amy Poehler have not hosted the event. The full list of nominations are below:
