Regina King receives a nomination for Best Director

Award season is upon us and it’s looking different to any one that preceded it but the press surrounding it remains the same, who got nominated and who’s been snubbed?


The biggest development is the fact there are three women in the Best Director category. Considering only five women in total have ever been nominated for a directing Golden Globe, you can see what a sea change that is. Regina King, Emerald Fennel and Chloé Zhao all received nods in this historic category.


On the TV side of things, all four main characters in Schitt’s Creek received acting nominations, so fans will be tuning in to see if they repeat their immense Emmy sweep.


On the snub front, Michaela Coel was overlooked for I May Destroy You while the mixed bag Emily In Paris was honoured with a nomination. James Corden’s much maligned performance in Prom caught a nod but Meryl Streep missed out for the same film.


Whatever your feelings on the nominations, you can watch the show on February 28th when it’s hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
