2018 Golden Globes

The Shape of Water leads 2018 Golden Globe nominations

Guillermo del Toro's aquatic fairy tale, The Shape of Water, leads the 2018 Golden Globes with seven nominations, followed by fellow Best Picture, Drama, nominees The Post and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with six each. The trio will compete in the category against Dunkirk and Call Me By Your Name.

In the television drama category, just one show — This Is Us — belongs to a traditional network, competing against Netflix's Stranger Things and The Crown, Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, and HBO's Game of Thrones. In the Best TV Musical or Comedy section, Black-ish, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Master of None, SMILF, and Will and Grace will go head-to-head. The Best Motion Picture Comedy or Musical category hosts The Disaster Artist, Get Out, I, Tonya, The Greatest Showman, and Lady Bird.

The biggest snubs were in the Best Director categories, where major women directors — Greta Gerwig of Lady Bird, Dee Rees of Mudbound, and Patty Jenkins of Wonder Woman — failed to be nominated. See the full nominations at the Los Angeles Times.
