Golden Globes 2020: Robbie, Kidman, Crowe Receive Nod As Aussies Sweep Nominations
Some of Australia's biggest names have been revealed among the nominations for the 2020 Golden Globes.
Aussie stars Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Margot Robbie, Toni Collette, and Russell Crowe have all nabbed a nomination for the 77th Golden Globe Awards, which are set to take place on January 6, 2020.
Crowe, who hasn't been nominated for a Globe since 2006's 'Cinderella Man', nabbed a nod for his role as controversial Fox News boss Roger Ailes in the miniseries 'The Loudest Voice', where he'll be up against Sacha Baron Cohen (The Spy), Sam Rockwell (Fosse/Verdon), Christopher Abbott (Catch-22) and Jared Harris (Chernobyl) in the limited series or TV movie best actor category.
Margot Robbie received a nomination for best-supporting actress in the movie 'Bombshell', also about Ailes’ story of workplace sexual harassment while at Fox News.
Meanwhile, fellow Aussie actress Collette is up for supporting actress in a TV series or movie category for 'Unbelievable', while Blanchett has received a nod for best actress in a musical or comedy movie for 'Where’d You Go, Bernadette'.
While our Aussie leading ladies managed to score well when it came to nods, there's been a flurry of discussion across social media upon the revelation that once again, no female directors were nominated in the best directing, screenplay or motion picture category -- despite a record number of films directed by women being released, including 'Hustlers' and 'The Farewell'.
Other snubs included Robert de Niro for his role in 'The Irishman' -- despite Martin Scorsese being nominated for best director and Al Pacino and Joe Pesci nominated for supporting roles.
The 77th Golden Globes will take place in Los Angeles on January 5 (6 in Australia), and will be hosted by British comedian Ricky Gervais, returning for a record fifth time.
