Golden Globes 2017: list of nominations

The only awards ceremony that recognises both film and television has released in nominations. La La Land and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story lead this year's nominations.

Golden Globes 2017: list of nominations

Yes, the writer-director of Whiplash has hit awards season gold with his musical, La La Land, getting seven nominations and daring indie drama, Moonlight, getting six. Over on the silver screen, The People v. O.J. Simpson, tops the list with five nominations and the BBC mega-hit, The Night Manager, just behind with four. The biggest surprise comes in the joint most important TV category, Best Drama Series, where last year's winner, Mr. Robot, hasn't even been nominated, being shunted out by four newcomers: The Crown, Stranger Things, Westworld, and This Is Us rubbing shoulders with Game of Thrones.

Another snub comes for Stranger Things star, Millie Bobby Brown, being ignored for Best Supporting Actress where we could've lived without Mandy Moore's nomination. Back in film, Mel Gibson-directed forgettable drama Hacksaw Ridge clearly made an impression on the Hollywood Foreign Press Association - the Globes' 'academy' - as they've doled out three nominations for the film including Best Drama Film where films like Jackie, Loving, Nocturnal Animals, Arrival, and Fences would be more welcome.

Breakout supporting star of Donald Glover a.k.a Childish Gambino's, Atlanta, Lakeith Stanfield, whose performance got a lot of praise for its originality, hasn't ended up with a nomination. Also, Lord of the Rings star, Viggo Mortensen takes a nomination for Best Actor in a Drama for a role that was widely considered to be a comedic one.

The big talking point comes with Deadpool that takes nominations for Best Comedy Film and Best Actor in a Comedy for Ryan Reynolds' lauded performance. Slumdog Millionaire star, Dev Patel, shows off his acting growth with his first nomination for Lion with Nicole Kidman nominated alongside.

Arts Award Activist, Ashlee pointed out that this is Lin-Manuel Miranda's first Golden Globe nomination - Best Original Song for Moana's How Far I'll Go - which gives him his greatest chance yet at the Oscar that may finally make him a PEGOT winner. How do I want to win? In case you're interested, my choices for the categories I've seen are in bold!
