2018 Golden Globe Nominations: The Shape of Water, The Post & More

advertising

The 2018 Annual Golden Globe nominations have been officially revealed, as presented by Kristen Bell, Garrett Hedlund, Alfre Woodard, and Sharon Stone. The frontrunners with the most nominations include The Shape of WaterThe Postand Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, but it's difficult to tell where voters will lean. Get Outwhich was released all the way back in February, has been one of the mainstream favorites in contention, but only managed to earn 2 nominations, while The Florida Project only earned a Best Supporting Actor nod for Willem Dafoe.

The most surprising inclusion, however, is Ridley Scott's All the Money in the Worldwhich risked some potential blowback following star Kevin Spacey's recent sexual allegation scandal. After recasting his role with Christopher Plummer only a month before the film's release, it managed to scoop up 3 nominations (including a Best Supporting Actor nod for Plummer himself).

Aaron Sorkin snuck into the Best Screenplay category with Molly's Game, based on real-life "poker princess" Molly Bloom, competing against Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water, among others. Other notable surprises include a Best Picture nomination for The Greatest Showman and Best Actor nominations for Denzel Washington in Roman J. Israel, Esq. and Ansel Elgort in Baby Driver. The most noticeable snub was The Big Sickwhich was completely MIA among the Golden Globe nominees.

In terms of television, the nominees were expectedly strong. Despite The Handmaid's Tale sweeping at the Emmy's, it only earned 3 nominations, while Big Little Lies became the favorite with 6. Game of Thrones, on the other hand, walks away with only a single nomination for Best Television Series - Drama.
