It’s clear the presidential election is not far from the minds of many, even those celebrating a Golden Globe nomination. Julia Louis-Dreyfus thanked Russian hackers for her Golden Globe nom for Veep in a tweet this morning. Louis-Dreyfus won five consecutive Emmys for her role as Selina Meyer in Veep, but has yet to win a Golden Globe. This is her fourth nomination.
Transparent creator Jill Soloway also alluded to the election in her reaction below that reads in part:
“The Globes always lead the industry in recognizing the new, the subversive, the wild frontrunners. What an honor it was for me to wake up and see that Transparent continues to be part an important and lauded part of our culture. How thrilling, also that Jeffrey Tambor’s marvelous and gorgeous portrayal of Maura Pfefferman is getting love. In this post-Trump America, intersectional voices are the future of the taking our power against patriarchy.”
Amazon’s Transparent received nominations for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for Jeffrey Tabor.
