Golden Globes: The Crown Leads TV Nominations; The Flight Attendant and Ted Lasso Among First-Timers

Golden Globe Nominations

Nominations for the 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards were announced on Wednesday morning by Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson.

Netflix’s The Crown led the TV pack with six total nominations, including for Best Drama and lead actress Olivia Colman. The final season of Pop TV’s Schitt’s Creek followed with five nods, while HBO’s The Undoing and Netflix’s Ozark netted four apiece.

Among the series breaking into the Globes pack this year were Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso, HBO’s Lovecraft Country (though its entire cast got snubbed), HBO Max’s The Flight Attendant and Hulu’s The Great.

By outlet, Netflix dominated with 20 total TV nominations, followed by HBO and Hulu/FX on Hulu (with seven each). And whereas broadcast-TV shows last year accounted for zero total nominations, NBC’s Zoey’s Playlist made the cut this time around, with Jane Levy vying for best comedy actress.

Sitcom titan Norman Lear will be honored at this year Golden Globes with The Carol Burnett Award, while Jane Fonda is the latest recipient of filmdom’s Cecil B. DeMille Award. The 2021 Golden Globe ambassadors are Satchel and Jackson “Children of Spike” Lee.

NBC will broadcast the Golden Globes on Sunday, Feb. 28, 2021, with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returning to host for a fourth time, though from opposite coasts.
