Golden Globes 2020: “Marriage Story” at the top of the nominations, two French films selected – Les Inrocks

The list of nominees, dominated by films by Noah Baumbach, Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino, gives visibility to French cinema with films by Ladj Ly and Céline Sciamma, nominated in the category of best foreign film.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Monday, December 8, the nominations for the next Golden Globes, which will take place on January 6, 2020. During the 2019 edition, the Golden Globe for best dramatic film was awarded to Bohemian Rhapsody by Bryan Singer and Best Comedy/Musical at Green Book by Peter Farrelly.

Marriage Story races ahead

For the 2020 edition, Marriage Story by Noah Baumbach wins six nominations, closely followed by The Irishman by Martin Scorsese and Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood by Quentin Tarantino, both nominated in five categories. We definitely have three potential winners here, although we must not forget 1917 by Sam Mendes and Joker by Todd Phillips.

4/10 for Netflix

Of the ten films nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Picture (five dramas and five comedies/musicals), no less than four were produced by Netflix: the film by Baumbach and that by Scorsese, great favorites, but also The Two Popes by Fernando Meirelles and Dolemite is my Name by Craig Brewer. While Netflix manages to seduce a growing number of filmmakers, especially after winning numerous awards at international festivals with Roma by Alfonso Cuarón in 2018, and which has just signed a ten-year lease to operate the Paris Theater in New Yorkthis recognition from foreign critics marks a new stage in the evolution of the streaming giant, which is conquering battle after battle the field of cinema.

Few directors

Note that only men were nominated in the categories of best film and best director. Let’s hope that the three directors who stand out in the other categories, namely Greta Gerwig for The Daughters of Doctor MarchLulu Wang for The farewell and Kasi Lemmons for Harrietwill be better represented at the Oscars.

French people in the spotlight

France is doubly nominated in the category of best foreign film. Portrait of the girl on fire by Céline Sciamma, already rewarded for the photography of Claire Mathon by New York critics, and Wretched by Ladj Ly thus give visibility to French cinema, after two years of absence in this competition.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge always on top

As for the series, British screenwriter Phoebe Waller-Bridge won two nominations: Killing Eve was named Best Drama Series while Fleabag is competing for the Golden Globe for Best Comedy Series. Jodie Comer and Waller-Bridge, the main actresses of these two series, are also nominated for best actresses.

Its two main female performers, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are also competing for the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama Series.
