“Barbie” Dominates Golden Globe Nominations With 9 Accolades, Trailing Behind Is “Oppenheimer” With 8 Nods


In a dazzling display of cinematic prowess, Greta Gerwig’s highly anticipated film, “Barbie,” emerged as the frontrunner at the Golden Globe 2024 nominations, securing an impressive 9 nods. The nominations, announced on Monday, include the coveted Best Picture in the Musical or Comedy category, along with recognition for outstanding performances by Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. Adding to the film’s glory, three original songs from “Barbie” also earned nominations.

Closely trailing behind is Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer,” the enigmatic companion to “Barbie,” which received 8t nominations. These include a nomination for Best Picture in the Drama category and accolades for its stellar cast, including Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr., and Emily Blunt. The Golden Globes, now a for-profit venture with a more extensive and diverse voting body, are set to take place on January 7th at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The category for Best Motion Picture Drama boasts an array of formidable contenders, including “Oppenheimer,” Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon,” Bradley Cooper’s “Maestro,” Celine Song’s “Past Lives,” Justine Triet’s “Anatomy of a Fall,” and Jonathan Glazer’s “The Zone of Interest.” On the flip side, the Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy category sees “Barbie” in stiff competition with films such as “Air,” “American Fiction,” “The Holdovers,” “May December,” and “Poor Things.”

“Poor Things,” directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, and Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” share the spotlight with seven nominations each. Lanthimos’ film earned recognition for its talented ensemble, including Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe, and a nod for Tony McNamara’s screenplay. Meanwhile, “Killers of the Flower Moon” received nominations for Scorsese’s direction, co-writing the screenplay with Eric Roth, and stellar performances by Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Gladstone, and Robert De Niro.

Among the surprises in this year’s nominations is Jennifer Lawrence’s recognition for her role in the R-rated comedy “No Hard Feelings” in the Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Musical or Comedy category. Lawrence expressed her joy, stating that she had so much fun making the movie that accepting the honor almost felt wrong but exciting.

While “Barbie” ties for the second-most nominations in Golden Globes history with “Cabaret,” it falls short of the record set by Robert Altman’s “Nashville” with 11 nominations. The film received a substantial boost from its three original song nominations, including the catchy “I’m Just Ken.” Notably absent from the nominations was America Ferrera, who delivered a memorable monologue in “Barbie.”

In the television category, “Succession” emerged as the top-nominated program, with a total of 9 nods, recognizing the stellar performances of Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, and Kieran Culkin.

Netflix leads the pack in nominations with 13, securing recognition for films like “Maestro,” “May December,” and “Rustin.” Warner Bros. closely follows with 12 nominations for films such as “Barbie,”The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” and “The Color Purple.”

As the 81st Golden Globe Awards approaches, anticipation builds for what promises to be a culturally diverse celebration of outstanding cinematic achievements. With a revamped and more inclusive voting body, the Golden Globes continue to evolve, setting the stage for a night that not only honors the best in film and television but also embraces a newfound commitment to diversity and excellence in storytelling.
