Netflix’s ‘Marriage Story’ Leads Golden Globe Film Nominations, ‘The Irishman’ Also a Top Contender
It seems the argument of whether or not movies produced by streaming services deserve major awards is undoing itself as Netflix continues asserting its presence. The streaming service’s original film “Marriage Story,” starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, walked away with six nominations, the most for any film this year.
“Marriage Story” was nominated for Best Motion Picture Drama, Best Original Score, Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson were both nominated for Best Performance by an Actor/Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama, Laura Dern was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture and Noah Baumbach was nominated for Best Screenplay — Motion Picture.
Not too far behind was Martin Scorsese’s hit “The Irishman,” which snagged five nominations of its own. The film is also contending in the Best Motion Picture-Drama category, with Al Pacino and Joe Pesci nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture, Scorsese nominated for Best Director — Motion Picture and Steve Zaillian nominated for Best Screenplay — Motion Picture.
“The Crown,” “The Kominsky Method,” “The Politician” and “Unbelievable” snagged an additional 13 nominations for the streaming giant. Netflix walked away with 17 TV nominations altogether, besting HBO’s 15, according to Deadline.
Amazon Prime Video’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Fleabag” were both nominated for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. The streamer also got a nod for Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language for “Les Miserables (FRANCE)”
Not completely shut out is Hulu, which snagged a nomination in the Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture made for Television category for “Catch-22.”
