Netflix swept the Golden Globe nominations on Wednesday in the TV divisions by receiving 20 nominations, nearly three times the nominations for its closest competitor, HBO.
Netflix, which broke its record of 17 shows in TV categories last year, received three of five Best Drama Series nominations – for “The Crown,” “Ozark,” and “Ratched” – and four of the five. In this category is Olivia Coleman, Emma Corinne, Laura Linney and Sarah Paulson.
HBO Max has two nominations for “The Flight Attendant” for Best Motion Picture or Comedy Series, and also received a nomination for “The Big Bang Theory”, veteran Kaley Cuoco, for her first Globe nomination.
His older brother, HBO, earned seven references for the psychological thriller “The Undoing” and “Lovecraft Country,” a horror series that mixes the supernatural and racial inequality.
The little-known POP TV received five nominations, all for the Canadian comedy series “Sheets Creek,” which won Emmy Awards last year. Cast Catherine O’Hara, Eugene Levy, Annie Murphy and Daniel Levy were all nominated.
“The Crown” topped TV ads with six nominations, including brilliant performances by Coleman, Corinne and Josh O’Connor, as well as supporting roles for Gillian Anderson and Helena Bonham Carter.
“The Magnificent” comedy about Catherine the Great and her scandalous rise to the throne received three nominations: for best musical or comedy series, and directed by Elle Fanning and Nicholas Holt.
“The Great” collects with “The Flight Attendant”, “Schitt’s Creek”, “Emily in Paris” and “Ted Lasso” in honor of the best comedy series, the award that won “Fleabag” last year.
Apple TV + made the list with “Ted Lasso,” in which Jason Sodicks plays a soccer coach who takes charge of a British soccer team despite his little knowledge of the sport. The show was nominated for Best Comedy Series and earned a Sudeikis nomination.
Nominees for Best Actor in Comedy Film Eugene Levy for “Sheets Creek”, Don Cheadle for “Black Monday”, Hole for “The Great”, and Ramy Youssef for “Ramy” last year.
A year after traditional broadcasters were completely out of the race, NBC was the only candidate on Wednesday, with one nod to “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” star Gene Levy, as she hears and watches computer programmer people express their thoughts through music.
Ryan Murphy’s story “Ratched” from Netflix about the famous nurse from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest received three nominations despite bad reviews. VIPs, Sarah Paulson and Cynthia Nixon, were both nominated.
“Ratched” will compete for the best drama series with “The Crown”, “Lovecraft Country”, “Ozark” and “The Mandalorian”. The “Caliphate” won the award last year.
