The #MeToo movement will undoubtedly influence the ceremony.
The 75th annual Golden Globes will air live on NBC on Sunday January 7 at 8 pm Eastern/5 pm Pacific. Seth Meyers will host the show, which will be held the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
The annual event, organized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HPFA), hands out trophies for achievement in both film and television. On the TV side, the HBO series Big Little Lies leads the nominations with six, followed by FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan with four. Despite the dominance of these titles, the TV categories could also see a few predicted upsets, like Hulu’s freshman series The Handmaid’s Tale perhaps besting more established heavy hitters in the TV drama category, like Netflix’s Stranger Things and HBO’s Game of Thrones.
But the Globes have usually drawn more attention for their film honors, particularly since they can help identify awards season’s biggest films in the buildup to the Oscars. (With that said, the Globes are also prone to buying into hype.) This year, Guillermo del Toro’s “sex fish movie” The Shape of Water swam to the head of the school, garnering seven nominations. Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-bait drama The Post and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri followed close behind, with six nominations each.
Genre films on the whole have typically fared better at the Golden Globes than at the more traditional-skewing Oscars, so del Toro’s vintage romance-fantasy has a strong chance of winning in its categories. However, the Globes are significantly different from many other awards ceremonies for film, including the Oscars, because all the major film categories are split by genre into Drama versus Comedy/Musical.
