Mary J. Blige is no stranger to award nominations. The Queen of Hip Hop Soul already has nine Grammys and countless other statues recognizing her vocal and lyrical abilities. Monday however, a new honor came her way as a Golden Globes nominee for best supporting actress for her turn in the historical drama “Mudbound.”
Just moments after Blige was awakened with the news, The Times spoke with her about the nomination, as well as a second nod for best original song.
The twisty thriller “The Sinner” did not receive a lot of buzz when it premiered last summer. Ads featuring Jessica Biel looking forlorn and soaking wet were dark and mysterious, offering few clues as to the story of the limited series.
But “The Sinner” was blessed with heavenly awards news Monday, scoring two marquee Golden Globe nominations, one for best TV movie or limited series and another for Biel as the lead actress, making the show one of the big surprises of the Golden Globe derby.
“The Sinner” will compete against far more high-profile projects, including FX’s “Fargo” and “Feud: Bette and Joan,” HBO’s “Big Little Lies” and Sundance’s “Top of the Lake: China Girl.” Biel, who also served as an executive producer on “The Sinner,” will face off against Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman (“Big Little Lies”) and Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange (“Feud: Bette and Joan.”)
Gratitude, kudos and incredulity reigned on social media after the Golden Globe nominations were announced Monday morning.
The film and television nominees were thankful, the costars gave props to one another and the snubbed — and those who recognized them — voiced their grievances with the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. following the early morning announcement.
Hugh Jackman and Zendaya, the stars of the musical “The Greatest Showman,” delighted in the film’s multiple nominations, as did “The Disaster Artist’s” Seth Rogen and the team behind Disney and Pixar's animated crowd-pleaser “Coco.”
Already a multiple award winner earlier this year for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II in the Netflix series “The Crown,” Claire Foy earned another Golden Globe nomination for her performance in the show’s second season.
Reached by phone at a coffee shop in a snowy Atlanta, where she’s filming the upcoming Neil Armstrong biopic “First Man,” Foy talks about her reaction to the news.
We can’t imagine your nomination was a surprise – you won a Golden Globe last year for the role and you were nominated for an Emmy this year -- but how does it feel?
Given the early raves director Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” received at its premiere Saturday in Los Angeles, some fans may have been looking to see if the film would receive any love in the Golden Globes nominations.
Alas, the latest installment in the “Star Wars” saga, in theaters Friday, was not screened for the Hollywood Press Assn. in time for it to be in contention for this year’s awards.
Because the most recent films in the franchise are traditionally kept under wraps until shortly before they’re released during the mid-December window, qualifying in time for Globes consideration has been something of an afterthought. (Dec. 4 was this year’s official consideration cut-off date.)
I can’t believe it! What started as a little short film I shot in my friend’s bedroom turned into this. I am so honored for the show to be recognized and for our name to be up there with all of these amazingly creative and talented people.
Frankie Shaw, creator and star of "SMILF" in a statement on Monday
Alison Brie may play a character in need of a career boost on TV, but she’s doing just fine in real life.
The “GLOW” actress was among the actors who got good news when the Golden Globe nominations were announced early Monday.
Brie was nominated for lead actress in a musical or comedy for her Netflix series role as Ruth Wilder, a struggling actress looking for her big break who finds her way into a female wrestling show. Brie is nominated alongside Pamela Adlon (“Better Things”), Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"), Issa Rae (“Insecure”) and Frankie Shaw (“SMILF”).
