The names are finally in for the January awards show.
The nominations for the 2017 Golden Globe Awards are finally in and it looks like Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone's vibrant musical 'La La Land' could be the one to beat with a total of seven nominations altogether. Meanwhile, 'The People v O.J. Simpson' heads up the television lists.
Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling star in 'La La Land'
Leading the film nominations with seven altogether is Best Musical or Comedy nominee 'La La Land' starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone who are both up for Best Performance by an Actor and Actress in a Musical or Comedy. Justin Hurwitz soundtrack is also named for Best Original Score, with the song 'City Of Stars' looking at Best Song. Additionally it's up for Best Screenplay, and Damien Chazelle could scoop the gong for Best Director.
'Moonlight' almost matches the movie, being named in six categories including Best Drama, Best Screenplay and Best Original Score. Barry Jenkins is looking at a Best Director prize, while stars Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris are on the list for Best Actor and Actress in a Supporting Role. Fellow indie flick 'Manchester By The Sea' is up for the same awards apart from Best Score, and instead of Best Supporting Actor, Casey Affleck has been named among Best Performances by an Actor,
Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant are unsurprisingly contenders for Best Actress and Actor for their role in Best Musical/Comedy nominee 'Florence Foster Jenkins', while the film's main category is joined by '20th Century Women', 'Deadpool' and 'Sing Street'.
'Moonlight' is a big contender for the Golden Globes
Contenders for Best Drama also include 'Lion' (in which Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman are nominated for their Supporting Roles), 'Hacksaw Ridge' (for which star Andrew Garfield and director Mel Gibson are also up for awards) and 'Hell Or High Water'. Fashion designer turned director Tom Ford's movie 'Nocturnal Animals' is nominated for three prizes, while 'Loving', 'Fences', 'Elle', 'Moana', 'Hidden Figures' and 'Arrival' all have two each.
Naturally, Best Limited Series nominee 'The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story' has gleaned the most TV nominations with six altogether including Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series (Courtney B Vance), Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series (Sarah Paulson) and two for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role (John Travolta and Sterling K Brown). 'The Night Manager' starring Tom Hiddleston, which is also up for Best Limited Series, did well with four nominations altogether.
Among those nominated in the Best Television Dramas are 'This Is Us', 'Westworld', 'The Crown', 'Game Of Thrones' and 'Stranger Things', while Best Comedies include 'Black-ish', 'Atlanta', 'Mozart in the Jungle', 'Transparent' and 'Veep'.
The 74th Golden Globe Awards will take place on January 8th 2017.
