Meryl Streep Breaks Her Own Golden Globes Nomination Record With 34th Nod

In the Best Supporting Actress category, Meryl Streep landed her 32nd Golden Globe nomination also for BLL's second season - so regardless of the outcome, there's sure to be plenty of genuine congratulatory hugs on show night.

Securing an awards nomination within weeks of launch is undoubtably impressive, but Apple TV Plus is still firmly in the shadow of Netflix, which has dominated the Critics' Choice Awards nominations list. The competition is tough, though.

Foreign Language category was the big exception to that rule, The Farewell (directed by Lulu Wang), Les Misérables (Ladj Ly), Pain and Glory (Pedro Almodóvar), Parasite (Bong Joon-ho), and Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Céline Sciamma), along with a few others, but Bong Joon-ho was the only one to break out of there into the overall director nominations, leaving the overall picture pretty bleak.

In fact, 14 nominations alone are for the Martin Scorsese epic, The Irishman, with debuted on Netflix in late November.

Joaquin Phoenix's performance as Arthur Fleck didn't go unnoticed either. The nominees for best actor in a television drama are: Brian Cox, "Succession"; Kit Harington, "Game of Thrones"; Rami Malek, "Mr. Robot"; Tobias Menzies, "The Crown"; Billy Porter, "Pose". The final selection sees him face Christian Bale (Ford v Ferrari), Antonio Banderas (Pain and Glory), Adam Driver (Marriage Story), and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes). The Icelandic composer will face Alexandre Desplat (Little Women), Randy Newman (Marriage Story), Thomas Newman (1917), and Daniel Pemberton (Motherless Brooklyn). The fans can dream.

The prestigious award ceremony will air on January 5, 2020, and will see Tom Hanks receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his contribution to movies while Ellen DeGeneres takes home the Carol Burnett Award for her contribution to television. The arrival of so many new deep-pocketed outlets, all investing heavily in original programming, are likely to once again change the TV awards landscape - which was already rocked earlier this decade as Netflix, Amazon and Hulu all became major contenders.
