Golden Globe Awards 2017 Nominations

La La Land, Moonlight, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, and the other nominations of the 2017 Golden Globe Awards have been announced. The 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards “are presented annually by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) to recognize outstanding achievements in the entertainment industry, both domestic and foreign, and to focus wide public attention upon the best in motion pictures and television.”

La La Land garnered the most Golden Globe nominations with seven nominations. La La Land is a high-end, old Hollywood musical. Because of that and the praise that it has received, it is easy to see why the film garnered so many nominations. Moonlight, which has been lauded and will certainly win a major award this award season, received six Golden Globe nominations. Hacksaw Ridge, Fences, Jackie, and Loving I knew would get a nominations but Hell or High Water and Lion continue to surprise.

The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story received the most TV show nominations with five nomination. Since that FX anthology began, it has been a ratings winner. The acting in the series has also been noteworthy, especially as the series progressed. The Night Of received the second highest number of Golden Globe TV show nominations with four. It would have been an egregious oversight if Evan Rachel Wood had not been nominated for her performance in Westworld. Stranger Things, Outlander, and The Americans also brought home nominations.
