Golden Globe Nominations Are Announced After a Year’s Hiatus

The controversial Hollywood Foreign Press Association claims all sorts of reforms, and NBC will broadcast the show on January 10, 2023

After a tough road working its way back from accusations of racism, sexual harassment, bribery and all kinds of financial shenanigans, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced its 2023 Golden Globe nominations Monday.

The Globes, initially handed out by the HFPA in 1944, divide film and television nominations into separate comedy and drama categories. That, of course, guarantees the greatest number of stars potentially present. Except, this time around, after a year’s hiatus due to the HFPA’s issues—which it claims to have cleaned up, both within its ranks and with NBC—it remains to be seen which or how many A-list fameballs will actually show up.

The fact that NBC has only agreed to broadcast the hours-long show on a onetime trial basis does not bode well for its future.

However, given that the broadcast gets nominees in the front of Oscar voters’ faces while the voting’s still on may be reason enough to keep it alive for some. One nominee, however, already announced he won’t be attending: Brendan Fraser ‘s 2018 incident of getting grabbed by then HFPA president Philip Berk has soured the actor enough to keep him away.

The HFPA won’t have to address the problem of Tom Cruise—the actor returned his Globe statuettes during the year of the group’s controversy. Cruise wasn’t nominated for Best Actor in Top Gun: Maverick even though it did get a Best Picture nod. It will be interesting to see if Cruise softens his stance and shows up.

The film with the most nominations—eight in all—is Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees of Inisherin.

Everything Everywhere All at Once received six, and three films were nominated for five awards: Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans, Damian Chazelle’s Babylon and Baz Luhrman’s Elvis.

Some snubs and snark were inevitably brought up by the Hollywood trade magazines Monday morning after the nomz were announced: Not one single woman nominated for Best Director—including Women Talking director Sarah Polley. Not one of the Best Motion Picture nominees, comedy or drama, was made by a woman. And Elvis was nominated as a drama, even though it has two hours of music.

The HFPA announced last week that Jerrod Carmichael, the comic that hosted Saturday Night Live to strong acclaim this fall, will host the show on NBC January 10—a Tuesday— after they couldn’t land their traditional Sunday night spot on January 8. Though Matt Belloni on Puck, the industry tipsheet that seems to be replacing all the trades in relevance, reported last week that Carmichael was pretty much the HFPA’s last choice, they’d also approached Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, former hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, all of whom turned it down.

Will it be “the party of the year,” as NBC has always advertised it? It seems that the perennial bubbly nature of the show may get toned down this year in favor of a little more reverence, after what the HFPA’s been through.
