2024 Golden Globe Nominations: Barbenheimer, Succession, And More Bags Nominations!

Awards0 min read

The Gloden Globes are almost here!

On Monday (11th December) morning, Wilmer Valderrama and Cedric the Entertainer announced the 2024 Golden Globe nominations for the 81st edition of the celebrated awards, honoring the top television shows and movies from the past year.

Barbie appears to be leading the wagon with a total of nine nominations, followed by Oppenheimer’s eight nominations. Poor Things and Killers of the Flower Moon both managed to earn seven nominations.

In the world of television shows, while the final season of Succession bagged the most number of nominations (a solid nine!), Only Murders in the Building and The Bear followed with five nominations each.

This year, the event has launched two brand-new categories: the best stand-up comedian on TV as well as box office and cinematic achievements in motion films.

The ceremony will air live on television. On 7th January, you can watch the ceremony live on CBS between 8 and 11 p.m. ET, right after an NFL match. You can also stream the event on the official CBS app and Paramount +!

2024 Golden Globe Nominations: An Overview!

2024 Golden Globe Nominations

Of course, Barbie is dominating the 2024 Golden Globe nominations! Greta Gerwig’s ode to feminist re-telling of Barbie’s journey from its origins right to the shelves of toy stores bagged nine nominations in total. The nine nominations make the film the second-most nominated film in the show’s history spanning 81 years, tying Barbie with Cabaret.

Naturally, Oppenheimer closely followed Barbie with eight nominations. Oppenheimer might not be a feminist re-telling of a toy, but it is Christopher Nolan’s re-telling of J. Robert Oppenheimer’s story – a story where he developed the atomic bomb, which changed the Second World War forever.

Don’t forget that Oppenheimer and Barbie released on the very same weekend, a rare convergence of cinematic blockbusters that went on to inspire not just memes (hello, Barbenheimer!) but also Halloween costumes.

And not just memes or Halloween costumes, the two movies together turbocharged the whole box office.

Unline Oscars, the Golden Globes celebrate the best in the world of cinema and television while staying far away from behind-the-camera excellence in cinematography or editing. They are also known for making distinctions between different genres of cinema, recognizing the best musicals and comedies separately from the best dramas.

As a result, Oppenheimer will not compete with Barbie directly. So, Oppenheimer is in direct competition with the best dramas of the year, such as Past Lives, Maestro, Anatomy of a Fall, The Zone of Interest, and Killers of the Flower Moon.

Similarly, Barbie will directly compete with the best musicals or comedies such as The Holdovers, May December, Poor Things, American Fiction, and Air.

Succession And TV Shows That Made Their Mark This Year:

Succession And TV Shows

Of course, if there is one show that is ruling the 2024 Golden Globe nominations, then that has to be the final season of Succession. HBO’s ode to a media mogul’s contending family bagged nine nominations for the show’s final season!

The second-most nominated shows with five nominations were:

■ Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building and

■ FX’s The Bear.

Apart from Succession, the nominations for the best television dramas include The Morning Show, The Last of Us, The Diplomat, The Crown, and 1923. Similarly, Only Murders in the Building and The Bear will fight it out for the best comedy on TV along with Ted Lasso, Jury Duty, Barry, And Abbott Elementary.

Since Netflix has produced movies and TV shows such as The Diplomat, The Crown and Maestro, we weren’t really surprised to know that the platform scored the most number of nominations as a media company.

Yes, Netflix bagged 28 nominations, followed closely by Warner Bros. Discovery’s 27 nominations. After all, Warner Bros. Discovery includes nominations for Barry, Succession, and Barbie.

Not everyone out there has enough reason to celebrate the announcement on Monday morning. Michael Mann’s Ferrari and Ava DuVernay’s Origin missed out on nominations in spite of rave reviews.

Sadly, even The Color Purple failed to get a nomination for best comedy or musical, and even Frasier’s reboot went back empty-handed.
