The 2018 Golden Globes nominations have been announced. The top film nominee is Guillermo del Toro’s romantic fantasy “The Shape of Water” with seven nominations and, with multiple nominations for “Call Me By Your Name” and “The Post,” there’s a wide range of choices and no clear front-runner. And thanks to HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” leading the TV field with six, followed by shows like FX’s “Feud: Bette and Joan” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” on Hulu, stories about women are taking center stage. Here is the Los Angeles Times’ complete coverage of the nominations including the full list of nominees, reactions, snubs, surprises and more.
The HFPA would like you to know that they saw “All the Money in the World.” The movie picked up a surprise three Golden Globes nominations Monday morning, for Christopher Plummer as supporting actor but also Michelle Williams for actress in a drama and Ridley Scott for director.
Considering Plummer was only announced as being a part of the movie a little more than a month ago, his recognition by the Globes may the fastest turnaround on record from performance to nomination.
The film was pulled from its slot on the closing night of the AFI Fest in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against actor Kevin Spacey, originally cast in the role of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty. In short order it was announced that Scott was going to replace Spacey with Plummer through reshoots while still getting the movie finished in time for a late December release.
An unfinished version of the film is reported to have been screened for the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. last week. Press screenings of the final cut are expected to begin in earnest later this week.
