With everything that’s gone on in the past year, there’s one plea that gets uttered over and over again. Most people just want “a semblance of normalcy”. It sounds easy, yet has been kind of hard to come by. Holiday plans altered. Weekend rituals put on hiatus. Even the act of going to see a movie has been almost irrevocably changed. So, as the statue-filled portion of award season is upon us now, there’s a nice familiarity that comes with the Golden Globes annual unveiling of its nominations. It might not be something big, but at least it’s something.

Given the abrupt changes and loops that 2020 threw at the entertainment industry, there was always a good chance this year’s nominations would appear different. The rise of streaming has already made an impact in the past, yet is definitely at the forefront here. Movies and television categories do benefit from that shift, overall. Either by the content of programing put out there or general expanding of diversity, getting the attention it deserves. That doesn’t meant that further progress doesn’t need to be taken. It’s just citing that this year is a little bit better than the past. It just needs to keep happening.

The majority of heavy hitters and expected names are all here in force, with Netflix nabbing a whopping 42 nominations. There is also a stellar showing by female voices too, with many women walking home with directorial nominations. Hopefully one of them will go home with the gold. Going by lots of critic circle awards already given out, that’s likely to be the case. At the same time, there’s still a few surprises to be had in the list. If anything it serves well as a primer to movies you need to check out. The sooner, the better.
