The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) on Wednesday (February 3) announced its nominees for the 78th Golden Globe Awards.

On the film side, David Fincher’s Citizen Kane drama Mank picked up the most nominations with six, followed by The Trial Of The Chicago 7 (five) and The Father, Nomadland and Promising Young Woman (all four). The most nominated series was The Crown (six), with Schitt’s Creek just behind on five.

Netflix was the most successful film distributor, receiving 22 nominations (as well as 20 on the TV side). Amazon was next up with seven film nods, followed by Focus, Searchlight, Sony and Disney (all with five).

Three women made the five-strong shortlist for best director: Regina King, Chloé Zhao and Emerald Fennell (alongside David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin). It’s the first time more than one female director has been nominated in the same year, and brings the total number of women ever nominated in the category to eight.

The awards ceremony will take place on February 28 and will be hosted once again by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The duo will host from different locations, with Fey at New York City’s Rainbow Room and Poehler at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
