While hosting the Academy Awards may be the job that virtually no one except for Kevin Hart wants this year, the Golden Globes tends to be more of an openly accept gig. Even its categorisation of the film - a highly critical portrait of Cheney as a power-hungry, behind-the-scenes tyrant - as a comedy raised some eyebrows, just as Globes recent comedy selections Get Out and The Martian did. Belgium's "Girl", a Netflix film, was the surprise inclusion here. "The Americans" scored farewell nods for best drama series and actor and actress Matthew Rhys (who won the Emmy) and Keri Russell. Donald Glover scored an acting nomination for the series, however.
But the Globes also handed nominations to some up-and-comers, including Lucas Hedges (Boy Erased), Timothee Chalamet (Beautiful Boy) and Elsie Fisher, the 15-year-old star of the coming-of-age tale Eighth Grade. NBC has hosted the Globes broadcast for the last 23 years.

The industry's biggest attractions, however, have faced ingrained skepticism from Oscar voters, which explains the "popular film" trial balloon, which many saw as an act of desperation and pandering meant to mollify ABC, the network that televises the awards, after a sizable dip in last year's ratings. Yes, the film is full of heart and contains some drama, but these categories are so loosey-goosey, that leaving out the Pervuian bear seems like a crime. The trendy "Twilight Zone"-inspired drama"Homecoming" scored 3 nominations, for best drama series and for lead actors Julia Roberts (who missed a dramafilm actress nod for "Ben Is Back") and up-and-comer Stephan James as therapist and patient in a spooky Florida rehab facility".
