Nominations for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards were announced Monday, Dec. 11, and, as expected, several Palisadian pundits made the favored shortlist of this season’s 90-some members of the Hollywood Foreign Press.
Longtime Riviera resident Steven Spielberg’s timely journalism film “The Post” swept up a Best Picture nomination and five others, including Best Performance by an Actor for downhill neighbor Tom Hanks’ clever portrayal of Vietnam-era Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee.
Pali-raised actor Armie Hammer received his first Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, securing his place among top tier industry talent for his performance as Oliver in Luca Guadagnino’s sun-kissed coming-of-age film “Call Me by Your Name.”
Meanwhile, part-time Palisadian Reese Witherspoon’s critically acclaimed HBO miniseries “Big Little Lies” picked up the bid for Best Television Limited Series, with the blonde top-liner cinching a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series alongside costar and former Palisadian Nicole Kidman.
Hollywood veteran Laura Dern was also acknowledged for her role in “Big Little Lies,” garnering the nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, a title she won during September’s 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
Less than a month away, the 2018 Golden Globe Awards are scheduled for broadcast on NBC on Jan. 7.
