Where is the love for "Little Women" and Adam Sandler?
Awards season is about to kick into high gear after the release of the 2020 Golden Globes nominations.
The Golden Globes are one of the more chaotic and entertaining award shows. Between the abundance of star power in the room and the amount of alcohol they consume, the Globes are a fun watch from start to finish. With that being said, the Globes and its voting body, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, are also an important feature of awards season. If actors, actresses, and their films are hoping for an Oscar nomination, a successful stint at the Globes will strengthen their campaign.
After the 2020 film nominations were announced, Twitter users, not surprisingly, had their opinions. There were some great surprises involving Parasite and Knives Out. There were also some disappointing snubs regarding Little Women and Uncut Gems. Here are five exciting surprises and five outrageous snubs.
Surprise: Bong Joon Ho, Best Director for Parasite
Bong Joon Ho wrote and directed the masterpiece that is Parasite, but receiving a best director nomination was no guarantee. Remember that both Jordan Peele and Greta Gerwig missed out on Best Director at the 75th Golden Globes (Peele and Gerwig received Oscar nominations for directing), so Bong receiving a nomination is a tremendous surprise. Parasite is not only one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year but of the decade.
