Golden Globe Nominees: Elba Picks Up 2 + Nods for Viola Davis, Taraji P. Henson, David Oyelowo, Others

Golden Globe Nominees: Elba Picks Up 2 + Nods for Viola Davis, Taraji P. Henson, David Oyelowo, Others

Here they are – the nominees for the 73nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, which were announced this morning from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. by Angela Bassett, America Ferrera, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Dennis Quaid joined Miss Golden Globe Corinne Fox, Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) president Lorenzo Soria, and Dick Clark Productions EVP Barry Adelman for the announcement. 

Of note, with regards to this blog’s interests:

– Best actress in TV series – drama:  Viola Davis, “How to Get Away with Murder”;  Taraji P Henson, “Empire.”

– Best actor in a TV series – drama: Rami Malek, “Mr Robot”

– Best television series – drama: “Empire,” “Mr Robot”

– Best actor in a supporting role in a film: Idris Elba, “Beasts of No Nation”

– Best actor in a film – drama: Will Smith, “Concussion”

– Best actress in a mini-series or film made for TV: Queen Latifah, “Bessie”

– Best actress in a supporting role in a series, mini-series or film made for TV: Uzo Aduba, “Orange is the New Black”; Regina King, “American Crime”

– Best actor in a mini-series or film made for TV: Idris Elba, “Luther”; David Oyelowo, “Nightingale”

Worth noting that Elba has been nominated three times for the Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film, for “Luther,” winning once (as you can see in image above). So this makes it the 4th nomination he’s received for “Luther.” Maybe he’ll win again. Or maybe Oyelowo (and any of the other nominees in that category) will have something to say about that.

I should also note that Sylvester Stallone picked up a Best actor in a supporting role in a film for “Creed,” but the film wasn’t nominated in any other categories; and neither was “Straight Outta Compton,” which has been another talked about favorite.

Netflix received the most nominations with 8, followed by HBO with 7; Starz – 6; Amazon & FX – 5 each; Fox, ABC & PBS – 4; USA & Showtime – 3; AMC & CW – 2; CBS, Hulu & BBC America – 1 each.

Quite impressive what Netflix has been able to accomplish in a few short years. They haven’t exactly been in the original scripted programming game for very long (compared to its mostly veteran competitors), but they certainly came out swinging, and are dominating!

I wonder if/when black TV networks like BET, TV One, and the OWN network will start competing for trophies during awards season; I wonder if they are even interested in competing. Of the 3, Oprah Winfrey’s network seems to be doing the most in terms of original programming that’s in development that may contend in coming years. For example, there’s the drama series Ava DuVernay is shepherding, “Queen Sugar,” which is based on a critically acclaimed novel. There’s also the megachurch drama from writer/producer Craig Wright, who also happens to be the man behind 2 previous multiple award winning TV series in “Six Feet Under” and “Lost,” so expectations are high for “Greenleaf,” which is the title of the OWN series. Other upcoming OWN projects of note include a drama on the 1921 Tulsa Race Riots starring Octavia Spencer, and a few more.

The Golden Globe Awards will air January 10 on NBC, with Ricky Gervais set to host.
