The 2017 Golden Globes Nominees

The Golden Globe Award nominees for the 2016 calendar year have been announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in advance of their 2017 ceremony on the 5th of January at the Beverly Hills Hilton and it’s La La Land that has received the most nominations, just pipping Moonlight with 7 nominations to 6.

In the Foreign Language category, Pedro Almodóvar’s ‘Julietta’ was not included amongst the nominees despite its critical success and high number of nominations at the 2016 European Film Awards, while the EFA’s overwhelming favourite Toni Erdmann was nominated and is considered a strong contender for the award.

There was a late push for Andrew Garfield to be nominated in the Best Performance By An Actor In A Motion Picture – Drama category for both Hacksaw Ridge and Silence, but the British actor was the recipient of only one nomination for his work in Mel Gibson’s war-time drama (Ridge). Viggo Mortensen is perhaps the most surprising of his contenders after being nominated for his work in Captain Fantastic, but it is Casey Affleck who remains the favourite to take the award home following an exceptional critical reception of his performance in Manchester By the Sea. Below is the full list of nominees…
