The 2020 Golden Globe nominations have only just been announced, and already the big winner is Netflix. The streaming service received 17 nominations in the film categories—easily the most of any distributor—and another 17 nominations in the TV categories, narrowly beating out HBO. This was largely thanks to Marriage Story, The Irishman, and The Two Popes, which each received multiple acting nominations, as well as the new season of The Crown.

It wasn’t all warm and fuzzy between Netflix and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, however. When They See Us was among the notable snubs, and the HFPA overlooked other critical darlings like Watchmen and Schitt’s Creek as well. And though A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Hustlers, The Farewell, and Little Women received their share of nominations, not one of the women behind them was nominated for Best Director.

Veteran Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais will return to oversee the ceremony on Jan. 5 for the fifth and (he says) final time. Tom Hanks will receive this year’s Cecil B. DeMille Award, while Ellen DeGeneres will be the first comedian not named Carol Burnett to take home the Carol Burnett Award. The full list of nominations is below.
