Musical or Drama? Golden Globe Nods Are More Like Scattergories

And so it begins. The race to the Oscars accelerated early today when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association unveiled nominations for its 2019 Golden Globe Awards, which will be doled out on Sunday, Jan. 6. The Globes are considered a major precursor to the Oscars, and help predict who might nab a nomination.

The main thing that sets the Globes and Oscars apart is the fact that the HFPA has nominees for Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress in two different categories—Drama and Musical/Comedy. In effect, that doubles the chance for a movie studio or performer to nab a Golden Globe nod. That said, the Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress categories bundle drama and musical/comedy together.

Here are this year's nominees:

Best Motion Picture Drama

BlacKkKlansman
Black Panther
Bohemian Rhapsody

If Beale Street Could Talk

Now, let's pause for a moment and consider the fact that both A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody are, in fact, musicals, but producers of each film chose to submit their movies to compete in the Best Drama category. When the Oscar nominations come around, such a puzzlement won't be a factor.
