The Golden Globes announced their nominations and, this year, they have something cool in common.
The Hollywood Foreign Press awards show will go live on February 28th, in its first-ever virtual event. The iconic ceremony, which recognizes the year’s finest in television and film, has gone bi-coastal. Host Tina Fey will present in New York, and Amy Poehler from Los Angeles.
The HFPA confirmed the 2021 Golden Globe nominees today, and as predicted, it’s a star-studded list.
But unlike in previous years, hardly any of this year’s roundup had much of a life on the big screen. With the pandemic binding us to our couches for the past 11 months, most of 2020’s releases skipped the movie theatre and landed straight onto our streaming services.
That’s right, all you need to do to see most of the Golden Globes nominees is click away.
If you’re a bit overwhelmed by the sheer volume of content at your fingertips, we recommend starting with the easier-to-digest television nominees.
The Crown, which is up for best television series drama, can be viewed on Netflix and fellow nominees Ozark and Ratched. Lovecraft Country is available on HBO Max, while The Mandalorian awaits you on Disney+.
The Queen’s Gambit and Unorthodox are also on Netflix, while viewers can watch the widely praised Normal People on Hulu.
If you’re in the mood for something lighter, HBO Max is home to The Flight Attendant, and Emily in Paris is on Netflix.
More from woman&home:
Once you've plowed your way through all the small screen shows, you can move onto the film nominees. A number of this year's movies are Netflix originals, including heavyweight dramas Mank and The Trial of the Chicago 7. If you need some pandemic escapism, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm can be viewed on Amazon Prime, while musical Hamilton is available on Disney+.
There's also sci-fi romcom Palm Springs on Hulu and musical comedy The Prom on Netflix. Unfortunately, Promising Young Woman isn't freely available right now, but viewers can rent it from many streaming services, including Amazon and YouTube.
A few of the nominees have yet to hit our screens just yet, including Sia's highly anticipated Music. Nomadland and The Father, which are up for best drama, are also still in the pipeline. Luckily, movie buffs don't have too long to wait, with all three films scheduled for release this month.
Without further ado, let the awards season binging commence!
