Golden Globes 2018: 'The Post,' 'Big Little Lies' Lead Nominations

The Post, Big Little Lies, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and The Shape of Water are among the movies and TV series to receive multiple nominations at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards.

In the Best Motion Picture, Drama category, Steven Spielberg's The Post will face Three Billboards, The Shape of Water, Call Me By Your Name and Dunkirk, while the Best Motion Picture, Comedy category has Lady Bird competing against Get Out, The Disaster Artist, I, Tonya and The Greatest Showman.

The Post garnered nominations in nearly every major category, including Best Motion Picture, Drama, Best Actor and Actress nods for Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, plus Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Original Score. Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri also picked up six nominations, notably for Frances McDormand in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama category.

Guillermo Del Toro's The Shape of Water led all film nominees with seven nods: Best Motion Picture, Drama, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Score (Alexandre Desplat), Best Actress in a Drama (Sally Hawkins), Best Supporting Actress (Octavia Spencer) and Supporting Actor (Richard Jenkins).

However, the biggest surprise of the Golden Globes nominations is the inclusion of Christopher Plummer for Supporting Actor for his portrayal of J.Paul Getty in All the Money in the World, a role he took over less than a month ago after director Ridley Scott opted to cut Kevin Spacey out of the film following accusations of sexual misconduct against the actor.

In the television field, Big Little Lies racked up six nominations in the Limited Series categories, a point of categorical contention considering the HBO series announced plans for a second season. The show itself is up for Best TV Movie or Miniseries, while actresses Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman (Best Performance by an Actress), Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley (Supporting Actress) and Alexander Skarsgard (Supporting Actor) all scored nominations.

One of the contenders for Best Original Score is Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood for Phantom Thread, his fourth film working with director Paul Thomas Anderson. "It's a happy and productive partnership, one where I'm given a ridiculous amount of freedom to write music and explore ideas with him. I'm very glad to see this relationship recognised," Greenwood said in a statement.

Seth Meyers will host the 2018 Golden Globes, airing live on January 7th. On December 11th, U.S. network NBC will air a two-hour special dedicated to the awards show's 75th anniversary.
