LOS ANGELES, Feb 28 (.) – The Golden Globes will be handed over under epidemic conditions on Sunday, a potentially victorious night for the streaming service on Netflix, paying tribute to the late actor Chadwick Bosman and a handful of pajamas.
Netflix Inc will be coming to New York and Los Angeles, the virtual celebration of the best in film and television by comedians Tina Fey and Amy Buehler, with 22 film nominations, but is still looking for its first award in the Best Picture category.
It could happen with the period drama “Mank”, about the writer of “Citizen Kane” who tops the list with six nominations, including best drama, for actors Gary Oldman, Amanda Seyfried, and director David Fincher.
However, experts say the Manke victory is not guaranteed by the small and unpredictable Foreign Press Association (HFPA), whose members select winners.
“He has everything in terms of his pedigree and you feel these awards show love stories about the industry.” Alison Wilmer, film critic at the Los Angeles entertainment site, said, “But I feel like Mank isn’t everyone’s favorite. Vulture.com.
The biggest competition comes from Searchlight Pictures’ “Nomadland,” an influential documentary-style drama about America’s minivans in recession, and Netflix’s hippie drama “The Trial of the Chicago 7” in the 1960s.
#MeToo’s black revenge comedy “A Promising Young Woman” and Disturbing Old Age Story “Father” complete the nominations in this category.
“Hamilton,” the acclaimed musical “Hamilton” and “Borat Substance Movie,” by Disney + TV, which is a US-based satirical of former President Donald Trump from Amazon Studios, is a favorite in the Best Comedy or Music category.
On television, the British Royal Netflix series “The Crown”, whose current season focuses on the late Princess Diana, tops the list with six nominations, followed by the Pop TV comedy “Schitt’s Creek”.
Bosman, who passed away at the age of 43 following an undisclosed battle with cancer that shocked his fans and the movie industry, is considered one of the Golden Globes’ best actors posthumously.
Boseman’s last performance as a cheeky trumpeter in the drama “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” was released posthumously.
“It’s a space-filled performance that sets himself apart from many of the other contenders,” Wilmore said.
Jane Fonda and TV producer Norman Lear will receive Lifetime Achievement Awards, while a diverse list of stars including Riz Ahmed (“The Voice of Metal”), Andra Day (“USA v Billy Holiday”) and Viola Davis (“My Renees” nominated Black Bottom, Daniel Kaluuya (“Judas and Black Christ”) and Leslie Odom, Jr. (“One Night in Miami”) in the cast.
This year, due to the pandemic, they will be waiting for a call at home, rather than walking the red carpet before having dinner and collecting their award at a Beverly Hills hotel.
Nicholas Holt, who has been nominated for his portrayal of Russian Emperor Peter III in the TV comedy “The Great,” has said he will watch the show from his home in London, where it will take place after midnight.
“I’m probably sitting in bed with the top half of a tuxedo and pajamas,” Holt said.
