  1. And not a single traditional broadcaster to be seen in the nominations. Wonder if the Globes will move to a streaming service in a few years. Can’t see broadcasters promoting streaming services.

  2. What an interesting list of nominees. I noticed a large portion of these brilliant actors have a large number of films under their belts. I remember when actors like Robin Wright switched to TV credits and now there are so many being nominated for Golden Globes this year. What is the interest in so many of them moving away from film to TV? Does anyone have a suggestion as to why? I can’t imagine that it’s a significant salary? Maybe it is??

    • I think one reason is that there is more work available for older actresses on TV. Unfortunately Hollywood only wants younger women in major roles on the big screen.
      I also think that TV has matured as a medium and is now not looked down on as less than movies.
