Nominations for the 80th annual Golden Globe Awards will be announced Monday morning.
Comedian George Lopez and his daughter Mayan Lopez of NBC’s “Lopez vs. Lopez” will announce the nominees during a ceremony broadcast live on the “TODAY” show at 8:35 a.m. ET.
The Globes, which was on hiatus for a year after scandal and boycott threw the Hollywood Foreign Press Association into disarray, will air Jan. 10, starring comedian Jerrod Carmichael.
Some of the favorites set to be nominated include metaverse adventure “Everything Everywhere all at Once,” Steven Spielberg’s autobiography “The Fabelmans” and Martin McDonagh’s friends-enemies drama “The Banshees of Inisherin.” The biggest box office hit of the year, “Top Gun: Maverick,” could also be in the game. Likely contenders in the Best Original Song category come from a major music star, including Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, Taylor Swift’s “Carolina” from “Where the Crawdads Sing” and “Hold My Hand” by Lady Gaga from “Top Gun: Maverick”.
This year’s show could be pivotal for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization that organizes the Globes. A Los Angeles Times investigation in early 2021 found the group had no black members then, a revelation compounded by other allegations of ethical irregularities. Many stars and studios said they would boycott the show. Tom Cruise returned his three Globes.
After Hollywood rejected the Globes, NBC last year canceled the TV broadcast that would have taken place in January. Instead, the Golden Globes were held quietly in a Beverly Hilton ballroom with no stars in attendance. The winners were announced on Twitter.
