The biggest surprise from this year’s Golden Globe nominations is the lack of surprises. As expected, Netflix continued encroaching on awards season in both the movie and television categories, earning 17 each, or 34 nominations across the board. The streaming platform’s dominance also signalled the slight slipping of HBO’s powerful hold on television: The network earned 15 nods, trailing Netflix’s TV nominations by two.

Netflix’s ‘Marriage Story,’ a domestic drama directed by Noah Baumbach and starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson, earned six nominations. It was followed closely by Netflix’s other event movie, Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman,’ which earned five nods, including two in the best supporting actor category for Al Pacino and semi-retired Joe Pesci.

Tying ‘The Irishman’ in number of accolades was Quentin Tarantino’s history-rewriting ‘Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood,’ which delved into the Manson “family” murders. Todd Phillips’s controversial anti-superhero film ‘Joker’ and Fernando Meirelles’s papal dramedy ‘The Two Popes’ trailed with four nods each.

It’s an even tighter race on the television side, with no clear front-runner. Three shows based on real life events — HBO’s ‘Chernobyl,’ Netflix’s ‘The Crown’ and ‘Unbelievable’ — all earned four nominations each.

And the trend of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association seeming to prefer television shows with recognisable stars continued this year, which might account for the critically dismissed ‘The Morning Show,’ ‘The Kominsky Method’ and the second season of ‘Big Little Lies’ (Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern) tying the critical-lauded ‘Fleabag,’ ‘Fosse/Verdon,’ ‘Succession’ and ‘Barry,’ with three nods each. Hulu’s ‘Catch-22’ was something of an unexpected dark horse, nabbing two nominations (though it’s worth noting that it stars George Clooney.)

Ricky Gervais will host the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards on January 5 on NBC.
