2021 Golden Globe Nomination Standouts and Snubs: 'Mank,' 'Da 5 Bloods' and More

The nominees for the 2021 Golden Globes are finally here. On Wednesday morning, Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson announced the nominees for the 78th Golden Globe Awards, chosen by members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

On the film side of things, Mank and The Trial of the Chicago 7 garnered several nods this season (Mank with a field-leading six, Trial with five). Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis both were nominated for Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, but the film failed to land a Best Drama nomination—it only garnered those two acting nominations. Another notable snub? Spike Lee's Vietnam War epic, Da 5 Bloods, didn't pick up a single nod. But, when it comes to history-making nominations, three of the Best Director hopefuls are women this year (Regina King, Emerald Fennell, and Chloé Zhao).

As for TV, The Crown, Schitt's Creek and The Undoing did well for themselves. The Crown received six nominations (more than any other TV program), Schitt's Creek nabbed five nods and The Undoing was recognized in four categories. Meanwhile, the critically acclaimed I May Destroy You was completely shut out from the nominations.

This year, awards season has gotten off to a late start because of the coronavirus pandemic. Typically, the Golden Globes are held in early January, but the 2021 ceremony is set for February 28. With many people still hunkering down at home, folks have plenty of time to catch up on the nominees.

Without further ado, here are the 2021 Golden Globe nominees.
