A slightly less European edition of the Golden Globes
The Favourite by Yorgos Lanthimos

While last year’s edition of the Golden Globes saw a very European line-up vie for the awards (led by co-productions Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri [+see also:

), this year’s statuettes are more likely to be handed to US talent. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced the nominees for the upcoming edition of the awards, whose ceremony will take place in Los Angeles on 6 January.

Among the most nominated titles, Yorgos Lanthimos’ fun and vicious foray into period cinema The Favourite [+see also:

 shines with five nominations for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for Olivia Colman, Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz and Best Screenplay for Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara. The UK-US co-production Bohemian Rhapsody by Bryan Singer is also nominated (somewhat surprisingly) in the Best Motion Picture – Drama category, while its lead Rami Malek is nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama. These two films will be duking it out in the main categories against 100% US titles such as Vice (six nominations), Green Book and A Star is Born (five nods) and Mary Poppins Returns (four nods).

The Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language category welcomes the Belgian-Dutch title Girl [+see also:

The rest of the European titles are mainly to be found in the acting categories, although mostly for US talent. While Rosamund Pike is nominated for her work in the UK-US title A Private War by Matthew Heineman, it is Willem DafoeGlenn Close and John C Reilly who have grabbed a nod for their work in Julian Schnabel’s At Eternity’s Gate [+see also:
