2020/21 Golden Globe nominations: Mank leads all nominees with six

As expected, the 2020/21 Golden Globe nominations were... a choice. Shut-outs for Da 5 Bloods, First Cow and, aside from a token Foreign Language Film nomination, Minari were countered with nods for Sia's Music, James Corden's homophobic turn in The Prom (whose HFPA darling co-lead Meryl Streep failed to make the cut), and Jared Leto's critically reviled performance in the recent John Lee Hancock dud The Little Things. On the positive side, three of the five Best Director nominees this year are female, and the Best Supporting Actress race is heating up, with neither of the critics' consensus choices so far this season in the mix (Maria Bakalova in Leading Actress here, Youn Yuh Jung inexplicably snubbed alongside Pieces of a Woman's Ellen Burstyn). The first ever bi-coastal Golden Globe awards ceremony will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on the 28th of February.
