BFF-45 Golden Globes nominations ceremony begins





Golden Globes nominations ceremony begins

LOS ANGELES, Feb 3, 2021 (BSS/AFP) – The unveiling of Golden Globes
nominees began Wednesday in a remote ceremony that offers an important, early
glimpse into the movies leading this year’s unique and much-delayed Hollywood
awards season.

The announcement, co-hosted by “Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica
Parker and Taraji P Henson, whittles down the list of films and stars headed
for the Globes ceremony later this month — itself seen as a bellwether for
the Oscars in April.

Pandemic-related theater closures and blockbuster delays are expected to
boost smaller, stay-at-home movies this year, including Netflix’s “The Trial
of the Chicago 7,” “Mank” and “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

Rival streamer Amazon Prime is campaigning hard for “One Night in
Miami,” while Disney-owned Searchlight looks set to fly the flag for
Tinseltown’s traditional major studios with “Nomadland.”

The 78th Golden Globes, which also honor the best in television and are
voted for by members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will be
broadcast on February 28.
