Golden globes 2021: tenet and the big absentees from the nominations

The nominations for the 2021 Golden Globes have just been unveiled and big names are waiting for you. But several favorites and critical hits are missing. Who are the big absentees from the cinema and series side of the ceremony?

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has just unveiled the list of nominees for the 2021 Golden Globes. This ceremony, which will be held on February 28, will be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and will reward American films and television series broadcast in 2020 and professionals. distinguished during the year. Among those nominated for this 78th ceremony are major films such as Mank, The Chicago Seven, Nomadland, One Night in Miami and major series such as The Crown, The Lady’s Game, Ratched and Normal People. Unlike the previous year, which did not distinguish any director, three women were nominated in the Best Director category: Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman), Regina King (One Night in Miami) and Chloé Zhao (Nomadland).

The absent side films

But as in every edition, the announcement of the nominations does not only make people happy and it leaves room for surprises and forgotten people. For this 78th Golden Globes ceremony, Tenet, the feature film by Christopher Nolan, appears in only one category: Best Film Music. The blockbuster, which was the only big theatrical release during the pandemic, had divided audiences and critics and therefore failed to convince the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Ditto for Midnight in the universe of George Clooney which is distinguished only by the appointment of Alexandre Desplat. Another big missing from this ceremony: Da 5 Bloods by Spike Lee, forgotten by all categories.

On the performance side, we can note the absence of Steven Yeun, incredible in Minari, film nominated only in the category Best foreign language film. Meryl Streep, who holds the record for awards at the ceremony, has not been nominated this year. The young Zendaya, awarded at the Emmy Awards for her performance in Euphoria was not distinguished when she could also have been nominated for Malcolm & Marie by Sam Levinson, a film also shunned by the Golden Globes. It is also surprising not to see Tom Hanks nominated for his performance in The Mission.

Absent side series

In the world of series, the multiple nominations for the Netflix series Emily in Paris, which divided Internet users, created a surprise in the face of the successes of The Crown, Normal People or Le Jeu de la Dame. Among the forgotten side series, we note the very surprising absence of the overwhelming I May Destroy You by Michaela Coel but also of The Plot Against America, Tales From The Loop, Dispatches From Elsewhere, Ramy, What We Do In The Shadows, Euphoria , Bly Manor and even La Chronique des Bridgertons, which could have followed the same route as Emily in Paris. On the performance side, Daisy Edgar-Jones is the only one nominated for Normal People while her partner Paul Mescal was not distinguished. Jonathan Majors and Jurnee Smollett of Lovecraft Country are missing from the nominations as are Issa Rae for Insecure and obviously Michaela Coel for I May Destroy You.
