Award season will soon be upon us. Today, the nominees for the 2015 Golden Globes were announced. Most notably, HBO’s Silicon Valley, Girls, Amazon’s Transparent, Orange is the New Black, and Jane the Virgin win nominations for Best TV Comedy. Both Jane the Virgin, Transparent, and Silicon Valley are newcomers, debuting their series’ first seasons just this year. Gina Rodriguez also locked up another win for Jane the Virgin with a nomination for Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Taylor Schilling, Lena Dunham, and Edie Falco round out the rest of the group.
Jeffrey Tambor continues to wow the critics, locking up a nomination for Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy for his role in Transparent. Also on the bill are Don Cheadle, Ricky Gervais, Louis C.K., and William H. Macy. The Golden Globes are the only major award show to split their Best Picture category up into two categories: Drama and Musical or Comedy (because Les Mis was too whimsical and upbeat to be considered a drama). Birdman, Into the Woods, St. Vincent, Pride, and Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel earned Best Picture Musical or Comedy nominations. Anderson’s Budapest Hotel also earned his a nomination for Best Director and Best Screenplay.
