Golden Globes 2018 Full TV Nominations List: ‘Big Little Lies,’ ‘Feud’ Lead Varied Pack

'Big Little Lies' is the frontrunner with six nominations, fueling HBO's dominance on Monday morning; "Feud," "The Handmaid's Tale," "This Is Us" and "Fargo" also earned multiple nods.

“Big Little Lies”



“Big Little Lies” has a big little lead at the Golden Globes. The HBO series, which already won eight Primetime Emmys in September, now heads into the 2018 Globes with six nominations, more than any other program.

The “Big Little Lies” nomination haul comes just days after HBO confirmed that a second season of the show is now in the works. Behind it is FX’s “Feud: Bette & Joan,” which has four nods; then Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” NBC’s “This Is Us,” and FX’s “Fargo,” with three apiece. Beyond that, the Hollywood Foreign Press spread the nomination love around, with many of TV’s most acclaimed shows receiving just one or two nominations. It’s the end result of the Peak TV era: With such a robust and eclectic offering of scripted TV shows from multiple outlets, HFPA voters opted to honor as many shows as possible.

That’s why, in past years, perhaps newcomers like HBO’s “The Deuce,” ABC’s “The Good Doctor” and Netflix’s “GLOW” (plus the return of “Twin Peaks,” via Showtime) would have come away with more than one nomination. But in a crowded field, those shows will have to settle for those mentions, with so many more being completely shut out.

In the network derby, HBO led, with 12 nominations, followed by Netflix (nine), FX (eight), and a tie between NBC and Showtime (five).

Given its scheduling in January — midway through the TV season — the Hollywood Foreign Press Association finds itself in the unique position of getting to reward hot new TV shows first, before the Emmys.

Last year, however, it was “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” which had already dominated at the Emmys, leading the pack with five Globe nominations, followed by AMC’s “The Night Manager,” which scored four nods. Ultimately, “The Night Manager” scored three wins in 2017, while “Atlanta,” “The Crown” and “The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story” each won two.
