Awards season is officially underway with the nominations for the 2024 Golden Globes set to be announced today (11 December).
The films and TV shows in contention for the annual ceremony will be revealed in Los Angeles at 1pm GMT by Cedric the Entertainer and That ’70s Show actor Wilmer Valderrama.
This year’s nominations comes after a huge membership shake-up for the ceremony’s voting body, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which, in 2022, was accused of a lack of diversity in a Los Angeles Times exposé.
At the time, the HFPA did not have a single Black member, but it has since expanded its membership and enforced what was described as a strict code of conduct among voters. This led to the approval of many celebrities who, one year after boycotting the event, decided to attend the 2023 ceremony.
While Jerrod Carmichael was appointed host for the event earlier this year, there have been reports that the HFPA is struggling to hire a presenter for the 2024 event, which will be broadcast in the US on CBS and in the UK on Paramount+.
CNN claims that Chris Rock and Ali Wong, as well as Will Arnett, Sean Hayes and Jason Bateman, who were reportedly approached to host as a trio, have all declined offers. A spokesperson for the Golden Globes declined to comment on the search for the host. However, a source close to the situation said there are “three very serious conversations” going on with potential presenters.
Three minutes to go, apparently. Hold your breaths…

One of the organisers has encouraged the audience to applaud the nominees when they’re announced, saying: “This is the Golden Globes so no need to be tense about this.”

Another name back in the awards race is Jon Hamm – this time for Fargo season five, which isn’t even out in the UK yet. If past scheduling is to go by, it’ll be here in January. I’ve heard that it is brilliant and very much a return to form.

There’s a third TV category at the Golden Globes – for Best Limited Series/TV Movie.
If anything’s going to sweep here, its BEEF, the Netflix show starring Ali Wong and Steven Yeun.
Apparently, Wong was asked to host this year’s ceremony, but declined…

The tightest race of 2024
Best Comedy Series is a much tighter race. The Bear is clearly the favourite, but it faces fierce competition in the form of Jury Duty, Abbott Elementary and the final season of Ted Lasso.
There’s also the much-loved Only Murders in the Building and also Poker Face, starring Natasha Lyonne.
But The Bear will probably sweep. While Jeremy Allen White and guest star Jamie Lee Curtis have wins, let alone nominations, secured, let’s hear it for Ebon Moss-Bachrach, whose Richie became the show’s best character in season two.

TV titans to duke it out
Succession is absolutely the one to beat in the Best Drama category.
Other contenders include The Last of Us, The Crown, but the other spots are less sure.
Which news shows could break through? Odds suggest Netflix’s The Diplomat and Apple TV+’s Hijack.
If there was any justice, For All Mankind and Foundation would get recognition – but it seems unlikely.

Step forward, Da’Vine Joy Randolph
…and Best Supporting Actress seems to be going the way of Da’Vine Joy Randolph for her role in The Holdovers.
Randolph will likely be battling Emily Blunt (Oppenheimer) and The Colour Purple stars Danielle Brooks and Taraji P Henson.
