The names of the Golden Globes led by “Banshees”, “Everything Everywhere”

NEW YORK — After scandal and boycott threw the Hollywood Foreign Press Association into disarray and canceled its annual television awards show for a year, the Golden Globes prepared for its return on Monday by dumping nominations on the dark comedy “The Banshees of Inisherin” and the multiverse mash-up “Everything, Everywhere, All At Once.”

The nominations were read by Mayan Lopez and Selenis Leyva on NBC’s “Today” morning show.

The nominees for best dramatic film are: “The Fabelmans”, “Top Gun: Maverick”, “Elvis”, “Tár” and “Avatar: the way of the water”.

The nominees for best picture, comedy or musical are: “The Banshees of Inisherin”, “Everything Everywhere All at Once”, “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery”, “Babylon” and “Triangle of Sadness”.

Martin McDonagh’s tale of conflicted friends “The Banshees of Inisherin” led all films with eight nominations, including nods for actors Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan. Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s existential action comedy “Everything Everywhere all at Once” came in second with six nominations, including Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Among the nominees for Best Actor in a Drama is Brendan Fraser. Fraser said he would not attend the Globes after he said he was groped in 2003 by former HFPA member and former president of the organization Philip Berk.

The Globes will be televised on January 10, with stand-up comedian Jerrod Carmichael.

On the TV side, “Abbott Elementary” leads with five nominations, including best series, musical or comedy, and winks for its stars Quinta Brunson, Janelle James and Tyler James Williams. “The Crown”, “Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story”, “Only Murders in the Building”, “Pam & Tommy” and “White Lotus” all earned four nominations.

The Globes are trying to mount a comeback this year. A Los Angeles Times investigation in early 2021 found the group had no black members then, a revelation compounded by other allegations of ethical irregularities. Many stars and studios said they would boycott the show. Tom Cruise returned his three Globes.

Whether Cruise chooses to attend this year might be one of the most talked about questions ahead of the ceremony. His ‘Top Gun: Maverick’, the biggest box office hit of the year, was nominated for two awards: Best Picture, Drama and Best Song. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer was among the first to celebrate the film’s nominations with a statement of thanks.

“Top Gun: Maverick” wasn’t the only blockbuster hosted by the Globes. James Cameron’s upcoming “Avatar: The Way of Water” won Best Picture, Drama and Best Director for Cameron. “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” picked up two nominations, for Angela Bassett’s Supporting Actor and Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up.”

Arguably, no film received a bigger boost than Damien Chazelle’s silent film epic “Babylone.” The film didn’t hit theaters until later this month, but walked away with five nominations, including nods for Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt and Diego Calva.

Last year, NBC canceled the TV broadcast that would have taken place last January. Instead, the Golden Globes were held quietly in a Beverly Hilton ballroom with no stars in attendance. The winners were announced on Twitter.

Over the past year and a half, the HFPA has reorganized its membership and enacted reforms aimed at reducing unethical behavior. The group added new, more diverse members.

Bringing the Globes back to the air, NBC praised the HFPA for its ongoing reforms, but also reworked its contract. The network will air the 2023 show under a one-year deal, making January’s show a possible Globes watershed moment. NBC has also moved the telecast to a Tuesday, instead of the previous Sunday night’s perch of the Globes, and will also air the ceremony on Peacock.

Known for its boozy, celebrity-filled show, the Globes has long been one of the most-watched non-sports live programs of the year. But ratings, as they have for most awards shows, have slipped for the Globes in recent years. The 2021 show, held amid the pandemic, was watched by 6.9 million people, up from 18 million the previous year.

The HFPA sold the Globes earlier this year to Todd Boehly’s Eldridge Industries, which is transforming it from a not-for-profit organization into a for-profit enterprise. The company also owns Dick Clark Productions, which produces the Globes, and the awards’ longtime home, the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

For Hollywood studios, the Globes can be a useful marketing tool that helps draw audiences to award contenders ahead of the Oscars, which this year will be held on March 12. Over the past year, no other awards body has emerged to replace the Globes. And with modest ticket sales so far for many of the fall’s most acclaimed dramas, some industry players are surely hoping to see the Globes return to its former glory.
