The Banshees of Inisherin And Everything Everywhere All at Once Lead Golden Globes Noms Amid Turmoil

The Colin Farrell-led dark comedy scored eight nods, while Everything Everywhere All at Once earned six, including best motion picture, musical, and comedy. Babylon, the newest film from La La Land by writer-director Damien Chazelle, also had a strong showing with five nominations, including stars Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt garnering acting nods.


The three films are joined by Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and Triangle of Sadness in competing for best motion picture, musical, or comedy. The Globes separates comedies and musicals from dramas to widen the field for potential contenders. Best Motion Picture (Drama) nominees include Stephen Spielberg’s latest The Fabelmans and Elvis, both of which received five nods. They are joined by the Cate Blanchett-led biopic Tar, summer blockbuster hit Top Gun: Maverick, and the upcoming Avatar: The Way of Water which is set to debut in theaters December 16th.


The Golden Globes have traditionally been seen as an industry barometer ahead of The Oscars. However, it has been wrought with controversy in recent years. Last year, Tom Cruise returned three Golden Globe statues he had previously won because of ongoing ethical violations surrounding the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s lack of diversity. NBC chose not to air the ceremony on its network last year ­– it is home for decades, which greatly diminished its reach and influence. It was widely mocked for releasing its winners via Twitter. This year, it will return to NBC but only on a one-year contract.


Although publishers like HBO Max and Netflix are celebrating, with 14 nominations apiece, there are some noticeable high-profile snubs. For example, Will Smith, who has seen his reputation tarnished after slapping Chris Rock during last year’s Oscars, was left out of the best actor category for Emancipation, whereas Tom Cruise was noticeably absent, though Top Gun: Maverick was recognized with two nominations and was a critical and commercial smash. Moreover, in television categories, the epic series Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power was left holding the bag, failing to earn a single nomination after becoming one of the most expensive projects in television history.


Award shows across the industry have seen declining ratings over the past decade as they have increasingly turned to niche films and series that have failed to generate mass appeal. This year’s nominees follow a similar trend with best picture contenders The Fabelmans and The Banshees of Inisherin barely registering box office success. Avatar: The Way of Water is expected to be a box office juggernaut, but it has not yet been released and the review embargo has not been lifted at the time of publication.


It comes as no surprise that NBC’s one-year contract will see the show lose its prime-time Sunday night slot. Instead, it will air on Tuesday, Jan. 10, on NBC and its streaming service Peacock. Comic Jerrod Carmichael, best known for his three-year run on The Carmichael Show, will host. Brendon Fraser, up for best actor for Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale, has already said he won’t attend.


The event will be an interesting test for an industry that finds itself in turmoil in deciding who deserves awards in an increasingly less relevant and insulted entertainment ecosystem.
